5.0 out of 5 stars "Monster" on BLU RAY - Compatibility Problems With The 'US' Release For UK Buyers...But Available In Europe..., 2 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Monster (Blu-ray)
Featuring a stunning turn by Charlize Theron in the title role – a society misfit who latches onto love wherever she can find it (Christine Ricci) – “Monster” is a bit of a mini masterpiece. So it’s surprising to find that such a highly regarded movie isn’t technically available in the 'UK' on the new fangled format. But there are two other versions on BLU RAY…one of which will give problems to UK buyers…

The 2009 American 'First Look' BLU RAY of "Monster" is REGION A LOCKED. Unfortunately this means that it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK BLU RAY players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't). Don’t confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front – that won’t help.

But the film is available on a REGION B release in Italy that will play on UK machines (foreign language all over the box).

So check before purchasing the American release to see if your BLU RAY player is able to play REGION A discs...otherwise opt for the Euro version. For a film like this – it’s worth it.
