4.0 out of 5 stars great, 8 Nov 2009
This review is from: Rocky: The Complete Saga [Blu-ray] [1976] (Blu-ray)
Well i knew some people wouldnt be happy with the transfers on this release. These days everyone expects nr perfection but it just aint gonna happen all the time and especially with the budget and age of some of these films. Yes the transfers are not the best but still are all a definate upgrade from the dvd..if you want eye candy then rent Transformers but this is quite nice all the same

Rocky 1 is the same transfer that came out a few yrs back and they havent changed a thing. There is a decent level of grain which gives the movie a filmlike quality but definaition,clarity and some colours all show improvement from the dvd and actually looks quite resonable given the budget and stock this film was made on

Rocky 2 looks a lot better and is pretty decent all round but again anyone expecting eye candy is gonna be disappoiinted

Rocky 3 is the worst of the bunch i have to say. Heavy heavy grain and digital noise permiate a lot of scenes whilst some others look halfway decent. Definately substandard by a long shot. Very disappointing.

Rocky 4 is maybe the strongest of the old movies and looks quite nice indeed

Rocky 5 is a step back again but still is definately improved over any past versions

Rocky balboa is the same wonderful transfer that we got a couple of yrs back and if it aint broke don't fix it. Lovelly contrast,steely blues and a great s/track to boot!

Ignore anyone who says that these are complete trash..they arent.. but like i said these are not eye candy stellar releases.
