5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered 2014 edition Steelbook, 11 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rocky - Limited Edition Steelbook [Blu-ray] [1976] (Blu-ray)
Nothing needs to be said of the film, but what of the brand new transfer, and how can we compare it with the first Blu Ray release?

Simply put, it is better than the previous release, the speckles and other niggles that plagued the first release are fixed.
Colour wise, there is a teal push, very much like the Terminator and Halloween remaster, and that gives the image a cooler, accurate and more natural look. Grain is intact but less noise than before, and to my eyes it is sharper too.

Overall i am very happy with this release in terms of picture quality.

Audio quality wise i do not think it offers any improvement over previous release.
