Good, region-free Blu-ray for classic Logan's Run,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logan's Run [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
This Blu-ray is a US import. It is region-free. The extras are standard definition, from what I can tell, but also play fine in the UK.
The picture transfer is quite good. It's variable throughout but the colours are vibrant and there's some good sharpness here and there. In fact, you can tell the opening shots are models more so than before - and can spot some of the special features (like during the Carousel) with actors on wires. As has been said in other reviews, the sets themselves are quite plain which hampers the overall effect a bit. The overall effect is solid and faithful rather than outstanding.
The sound is quite good - although there's a lot of directionality applied to the voices (if someone's speaking from one side, the sound follows them rather heavily). This does not affect things too badly, but is noticeably.
The film itself is a classic. I must say it drags a little bit towards the end upon repeat viewings though. Still well worth seeing and a good one for the collection.
Lastly, there's a nice period documentary about the film. It's a bit OTT but informative and amusing nonetheless. There's also a commentary track - with lead actor, Michael York. I've not had time to listen to it yet but it's good to know it's there for future viewings.

It says region 1 in the description? Yet in your review you describe as region free?

Not unusual. US imports are often described as region specific (Blurays are normally region A, B or C to avoid confusion with DVD's regions 1-6), but the bluray discs and packaging are often not tied to a region. The trouble is, you never know until you try the disc, and while multi-region DVD players are readily available, multi-region bluray players are not.
