This review is from: The Black Panther (BFI Flipside) (DVD + Blu-ray)  (DVD)
This film was released on VHS back in the early 1980's. However the production quality was so poor that I actually thought this film had been shot on Super 8mm film. I only ever rented it from the local video store. I then purchased a VHS copy that I thought had been remastered in 1989 but again the picture and sound were so poor I sent it back to the suppliers accusing them of selling pirated tapes. When I came across this DVD last week I thought to myself I'll give it another try. Thank God I did because the picture quality is superb. I haven't got a Blue Ray player so can't comment on that but the standard disc is flippin' ace. I have a large selection of old newspapers that I collected on this case from 1975 and 76 and this DVD makes my collection complete. Anyway the film is a must see. To actually know this is a true story and not a screen play makes it all the more sinister. After reading so much about Donald Neilson over the years, I came to the conclusion that he was actually quite a clever criminal and that he had thought out his crimes carefully. Get this film while you can as I can see it becoming another expensive collectors piece in a few years.
