3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected !!, 30 Mar 2004
By 
This review is from: Rugby World Cup: The Final [DVD] (DVD)
Having read the previous reviews for this DVD, I eagerly ordered my copy and when it arrived yesterday I was over the moon...especially after losing to France at the weekend.
I rushed home to re-live the fantastic occasion and was very disappointed. To be fair, I’ve only watched the game so far, and the extras might be excellent, but the game is what I wanted.
Its annoying from the very beginning, the camera angles are terrible and don't seem to be able to keep up with play...nearly all the shots are from ground level, so you don't get the full picture. After 10 minutes of this I had a headache ! It soon became clear that it was Australian camera's, e.g. whenever Jonny has a kick at goal, you don't see the ball go through the posts...you're busy watching the reaction of the other players, but you get to watch all of Elton's attempts.... this is even the case for the winning drop goal !! I never imagined that a DVD of the final wouldn't have the famous drop goal replay we've all seen.
Oh, and despite the reviews, you do get the Australian commentary…( but that is quite funny)
That’s the worst of it...I was personally, very disappointed.
