This review is from: The Sting [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
The Sting is a classic con film. Anything with Redford and Newman is bound to be great, but the Sting has a story that surpases even these two great thespians. I have been after Universal's remastering on Blu Ray for a while, and have finally got a copy. First of all hats off to Universal, it looks stunning. I have another 100th anniversay Blu Ray: To Kill A Mocking Bird, and it's unbelievable how good it looks. The Sting is the same. I love the fact they kept the deep shadows in this film, as apposed to trying to brighten and gain more clarity. Some films need that depth. The murky back streets and alleyways and the dinners and shops and Chicago all come alive with such beautiful detail. Everything looks fresh and new. The sound is also great, capturing the Scott Joplin rag time soundtrack really well and the sounds of the streets too. For those that love this film, do yourself a favour and upgrade to Blu Ray and see it as its meant to be seen.

Is the Blu-ray version just the film or does it come with extras/bonus footage etc? I'm surprised nobody has mentioned them if there are so am presuming not?
