The Deep Blu Ray- a real treasure,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Deep [Blu-ray]  (Import) (Blu-ray)
I have always loved this film. Sat through it four times in a row as I worked as a cinema attendant at a small leisure center in the late seventies. Even won a bet to check the patrons tickets while dressed in snorkel, flippers and diving mask- yes really!
The Blu Ray edition is absolutely stunning with a nice menu that is accompanied by the beautiful score written by John Barry.
The picture Quality and sound is the best I have ever seen of what is now a old film. The extras are truly special with a documentary that must have been shot at the time of production. Its actually presented by Robert Shaw himself. Who also throws in some nice anecdotes and even lines from the film itself. Also on the extras are the missing scenes from the rare 3 hour version. The amazing thing about these is they appear to have been remastered as well. Perhaps its a sign that the distributor plans a more definitive DVD of The Deep. Not all the missing scenes are featured though. A fight between Shaw's character Treece and cloche's henchmen is not featured. Nor is the extended scene where Treece finds the body of Kevin played by tough guy actor Robert Tessier. My edition is the Scandinavian import but no adjustments had to be made to the audio selection and the menu is in English. Paid a lot of bounty for this edition but as its quite rare to get hold of, so I guess it was worth it.
