Product description

Product Description

Tom Cruise stars in this visually stunning fantasy adventure in which pure good and evil battle to the death amidst spectacular surroundings. Set in a timeless mythical forest inhabited by fairies, goblins, unicorns and mortals, the fantastic story has Jack, (Tom Cruise), a mystical forest dweller, chosen by fate to undertake a heroic quest. He must save a beautiful Princess Lily, (Mia Sara), and defeat the demonic Lord of Darkness, (Tim Curry), or the world will be plunged into a never-ending ice age. Co-starring Billy Barty and Alice Playten and directed by Ridley Scott, famed for his remarkable settings and unparalleled imagery, the incredibly realised fable is the stuff movie legends are made of.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Blu-ray of Legend gets off to a very, very good start. Right from the off, you’re offered a choice of one of two different cuts of the movie. There’s the theatrical version, which many grew up with. But also, there’s Ridley Scott’s longer, richer director’s cut. Both, thankfully, are included on the disc. It’s the key extra feature that’s been included on the Blu-ray, and an important one.

Elsewhere? Well, ordinarily, the first part of a high definition upgrade that would stand out would be the picture quality of a film. In the case of Legend though, it’s the glorious score that plays over the menus. It sounds crisp and really quite wonderful, and remains so right through the feature itself.

Thankfully, the picture upgrade, too, is worth the investment. Considering how dark large parts of Legend are, it’s a challenging film to successfully transfer to disc. But it’s fine work that’s been done here. It really gets across just how young a certain Tom Cruise used to look, too, with the crispness of the 1080p transfer.

As with many fantasy films of the 1980s, the emphasis on practical effects is striking, and welcome. They hold up a lot better than you might be expecting in more exposed high definition. But then, so does the film itself. It’s a magical piece of work, in a genre that neither Tom Cruise nor Ridley Scott has spent much time in across their careers. And fortunately, the Blu-ray proves to be a worthwhile upgrade. --Jon Foster

After watching a couple of different releases of Legend and being thoroughly disappointed both with the music and cut scenes I have finally found the one that is nearly the exact original. I know Amazon will mash this review together under a 'general' Legend heading confusing which copy I'm talking about so I'm going to make it really clear! If you want the Original Tangerine dream music, blu ray quality and the least hacked up version of this classic film, the one you want is LEGEND (BLU-RAY) (1985) (region free) (US import). This has both the theatrical release and the directors cut. The theatrical release has the right music and no major scene cuts as far as I could tell it's the film I grew up loving! Under no circumstances by the UK release! Enjoy!

May I suggest that 'surround sound' is turned off???
As all the other reviewers seem to be concentrating on the presentation and not the content of the film, here's my twopence worth.
Definitely not a kid's film, this is a dark, sensual adult film of the age-old theme of the devil wanting darkness to take over the world - requiring the services of a virgin and a unicorn. The visual effects and photography are just brilliant, given the era this was made in - you can see Ridley Scott's influence and imagery in the latest Lord of the Rings films.
The acting is superb;
young Tom Cruise (as Jack) brings off the young lad charged with the task of rescuing the Princess and destroying Darkness with a grace and style that belong to a veteran;
Tim Curry is in his best-ever role here, (even better than Frankenfurter!); the stifled undercurrent of rage is barely held in check as he woos the slightly-willing princess; one is almost convinced by him as he declares his philosophy and aims - "No Good without Evil; no Love without Hate; no Innocence without Lust..." in that rich chocolatey voice; and his laughter and dismissive tone as 'the BOYY!' Jack confronts him sends shivers down one's spine;
and Mia Sara (whatever happened to her?) is both innocence and seduction, and believable in both roles, but her forceful rejection of the Lord of Darkness is as powerful a piece of acting as you will ever get.
Altogether a classic of film-making - seeing it again after several years makes one realise what a masterpiece this is!
Unreservedly recommended. *****

I first saw this movie on tv over 16 years ago and fell in love with it. And even still, at age 20, it is my favourite movie. I believe I am this movie's biggest fan and critic. I have 7 veriated versions of this movie, and have easily seen Legend close to 4000 times (no, it's not a sickness, it just spoke to me in different ways everytime i saw/see it).
It's still so sad that the dance scene had not been rightfully placed back into the movie after all these years.
If it had been, then the movie would finally be complete.
There are so many funny little changes in each version; between misplaced lines, scene sequences, dubs, etc... There's no wonder why I just keep watching it.
I still haven't fulfilled my goal of taking every extra little bit and piece that all the movies have and lack and create my own version with every single line and scene possible to match the complete script as closely as possible.
Sounds disturbing, but if ridley can't do it, I will!
They say a great book can be identified when it entices you just as much/or even more after you read it as a child, adult, and grow old.
That's precisely how I view Legend.
;) CHEERS!

There is only 1 reason to buy this blu-ray release. For the EUROPEAN THEATRICAL VERSION, which gives us yet another version of the film, from a Director who seems to like two, three, and in some cases even four versions of one film. It is presented with better sound, than we've had before, Jerry Goldsmith's score can be heard clearly and the dialogue and sound effects are crisp and sharp, giving the listener an all round balance of sound. The picture is the best I've seen it, it's rich in color and sharp in detail, the quality is not lost in the darkness, like the Director's Cut.

My main problem with this release, is the lack of, or NO special features. You get two versions of the film and that's it. Unlike:

Legend [DVD] [1986] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

This has two versions of the film, US THEATRICAL RELEASE / DIRECTOR'S CUT. A Director's Commentary, and a shed load of extras. The disc's themselves have the original posters printed on them, unlike the blu-ray disc, the menu's are better, beautiful, atmospheric images animated to catch the eye, and the packaging is beautiful, not just publicity photo's layered together in Photoshop. So why couldn't all of these, be incorporated in the blu-ray release too????????????????????

For the true fan, you must get BOTH.

I have to agree with the other reviews. This is a fantastic film, but to me what made it as a child was the Tangerine Dream soundtrack. I was SOOO disappointed when I bought the DVD and found that the soundtrack was different. I have been holding out for a couple of years for the other version but so far no luck. The film is defintely still worth watching, but I much prefer the Tangerine Dream soundtrack. I guess we'll just have to keep on waiting!!!
