5.0 out of 5 stars Humdinger, 28 Sept. 2009
This review is from: U2: Rattle And Hum [Blu-ray] [1998] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
This is a great film and will be enjoyed by anyone who has any interest in U2 - if you're not a fan it's unlikely to convert you. I've had this on Video and DVD so it's safe to say I like the movie. There is a lot of passion in the songs and there are some interesting time afoot as Sunday Bloody Sunday is sung on the day of the Eneskillen bombings in Ireland - very raw.

It's an interesting mix of Black and White (indoors) and Colour (outdoors) footage but the black and white works best. Some real classics on here which will be enjoyed by all.

As for the Blu-Ray conversion? Well, contrary to most old conversions the sound has come over intact which is really good for a soundtrack based movie. As for the picture? Well, most of it is shot in grainy Black & White so what you get is very high resolution grainy Black & White. It doesn't look soft and does actually look a little more real as you pick up bits of detail you didn't see before, but maybe that's just me viewing with a fresh pair of eyes.

Love the film, sounds awesome, picture is rock solid, absolute bargain on Amazon.

..no,I think you're right.This is a piece of film,if the grain was dnr'd out then alot of that detail would've gone & I think the transfer gambled right.There's nothing worse than a 'soft' bd.,and I agree...it is rock solid.
