4.0 out of 5 stars Not A Bad Transfer, 20 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Die Hard [Blu-ray] [1988] (Blu-ray)
Bruce Willis is John McLane - a cop from New York, home visiting his wife and kids in California. When a bunch of European terrorists take over the corporation his wife works for, John is forced to take control, and help the cops sort this out.

There's a lot that's been said about Die Hard, so I won't really go on about the movie, it's plot and the relationships therein, but more the HD transfer. Lets face it, if you're looking at this you know Die Hard, and want a better copy, as you're a fan. Well it's not a bad transfer, the colours are good, but not as exciting and vivid as The Pursuit Of Happyness: so far, the best BD transfer for me. The video is AVC, with an average of 20MB/s - which isn't bad. I would have expected a bit higher - as there's not much on the disk, 8 trailers for Die Hard and a couple for the other Fox films. There's also the newscasts, but they're in a pretty bad shape. I am surprised there's no featurette like on the DVD.

The audio is to die for though, DTS 5.1 - running at 1.5MB/s, not too bad at all. There's a few languages too, but no AD, which is a pity, as it's well worth the description.

The film itself is worth the £18, but the extras are thin on the ground, and the picture could have been better really, after all it's only 20 years ago since Die Hard was made.

4/5 for the film, 3/5 for the HD transfer and 1/5 for the extras.

Probably best to stick to the DVDs unless you're a real Blu-Ray die hard
