“The Three Outlaw Samurai” on BLU RAY – Compatibility Issues For UK and EUROPEAN Buyers…,
This review is from: Criterion Collection: Three Outlaw Samurai [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
At present this 1964 Japanese cult classic is only available on BLU RAY in the States. But therein lies a problem for UK and European buyers…
The US issue is REGION-A LOCKED - so 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.
Until such time as someone else gives “The Three Outlaw Samurai” a REGION B and C release – check your BLU RAY player has the capacity to play REGION A – before you buy the pricey Criterion issue…
