5.0 out of 5 stars Blu ray is excellent! Guns of Navarone., 20 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Guns of Navarone [Blu-ray] [1961] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Well as I've just finished watching this (extras included) I feel I can honestly comment. The movie as you will already know is absolutely brilliant! Basically the storyline is one of a crack squad of men who are sent on a mission to destroy a pair of massive German guns that are built into an inpeneratable mountain fortress. Originally shown in 1961 this was a massive budget blockbuster of it's day and won an Oscar for it's special effects and was nominated for best movie only to be bettered by West side Story.

This Blu ray 50th anniversary edition is fantastic. In my opinion the restoration is great. There is a short documentary in the additional features about this that just proves how much improved this is upon the original. Compared to the old vhs/dvd there is no comparison. The colours, clarity and total look of the movie have been improved no end and I can say that it was like watching it for the first time all over again (for me!)

As well as the film the additional extras are very interesting. There's loads of historical and factual information here as well as short documenteries about the stars whilst on and off set, all good stuff.

In 1080p HD and 5.1 DTS-HD with subtitles in English, English hard of hearing, Danish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Finnish, Japanese, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Hindi.

Please take this movie for what it is. Made in 1960 and it is not a true story but I would imagine stuff like this did go on! I've read people saying the Germans wouldn't have been so lax and they're not the actual tanks and this that and the other. . .so what? Just stick it in your blu ray player, sit back and enjoy it for what it is. A great movie!
