excellent blu ray of a cold war thriller.,
This review is from: Odessa File [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
bad reviews on here are because of the shoddy dvd that this was on. This blu ray looks outstanding! Image has released some bad blu rays but this isn't one of them. The storyline is a good one about post war nazis and it takes place in 1963. The movie was made in 1974 though and you wouldn't know it! by then germany was very much rebuilt, unlike 1963 or older. A very young mary tamm is in this one, she went on to make many films and tv appearances right up to 2009 , when she got cancer and she just recently died. rip. She aged very well too. But here we catch joh voight at his hieght of stardom still. He is excellent and really carries this movie well. There was a real odessa of course and the group did smuggle nazis to freedom. This makes this all the more of a good story here. Max shell is in here too and he is never anything but great so this should appeal to drama and conspiracy fans too. The blu ray is worth every penny too. with movies this old you just never know how it's going to look. this one will make you happy.

I watched this movie last night on the American release Blu Ray, fantastic movie, and excellent print too.
To think I have had this for nearly two years before watching! then again I buy so many American Blu Rays as they can be much cheaper than the British releases and it beats waiting years for them to come out over here while they are available in the States.
My only criticism is the American Blu Ray plastic cases are not as strong as the the ones we have here so can suffer from cover damage.

You may be surprised to hear that many film enthusiasts in America complain because their favourite movies are released on Blu-ray in Europe but not over there! They also grumble that discs in Europe are much cheaper than in America.
In other words, it works both ways!
