2.0 out of 5 stars Five-Stars for the Film, One very shoddy release!, 3 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Leon (20th Anniversary Steelbook Edition) [1994] [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
When will distributors learn? Look, Steelbook's are very nice, and they look great. However, if you are going to make them collectible, then for goodness sake, don't remove additional features/extras off of them.

Anyone who wants LEON, would be better spending around two-thirds LESS, and buying the regular UK Blu-Ray release, because this Steelbook is worthless. Yes, it looks nice. And yes, it's a Steelbook, so it'll retain its collectibility value for a while, providing you look after it. But that's it.

But here's what's missing from the UK Steelbook release:

1) Where's the 10 YEAR RETROSPECTIVE featurette? Gone!
2) Where's the Trailer? Gone!
3) Where's the JEAN RENO: THE ROAD TO LEON featurette? Gone!
4) Where's the NATALIE PORTMAN: STARTING YOUNG featurette? Gone!
5) And where's the Natalie Portman cameo video tests, that have been on other previous releases? They're gone too.

Oh, but we do give you two new-ish interviews with Reno and soundtrack musician Eric Serra, but whilst they're okay, they're hardly the most scintillating of extras. They certainly don't make-up for the loss of everything else, that's for sure! So, essentially, you're paying £21 for a reasonably lovely tin! Well, whoop-de-freaking-do!

This release, therefore, must go down as one of the most pointless upgrades for any true fan of the film. The fact that the German Steelbook can be had, and that does include all the extras too, across 2-discs, also makes this new UK release a frivolous one!

Unless you are a Steelbook fanatic, then save your money, and just buy the standard UK Blu-Ray of LEON. It'll cost you less than £7, and you'll be able to do something more worthwhile, with the remaining £14!
