Unlike Orbit's cut version, which boasts a terrible transfer from a damaged print that looks like its been edited for TV, Cinema Club's UK widescreen transfer is well worth picking up despite the absence of any extras (as is the widescreen Region 1 NTSC disc). Just make sure you order the right one!
It is fortunate that this film is available from SONY on Region 1 in the states, and also from 2entertain (Cinema Club) in the UK. Both of those prints are wonderful.
Don't waste your money on this dreadful Orbit Media DVD!
I think this is a superb gangster film and is definitely one of my favourites. I'm a big Bronson fan anyway but he's great here and this is one of his best performances. Even though he was a massive star and box office hit I think he was underrated as an actor. After "Once upon a time in the West" this is perhaps my fave film of his. The direction by Terrence Young is also good with nice photography as well as tension to certain scenes. The action too is superior with many bloody violent shootings throughout. It's a lesser know gangster film compared to the most famous ones (Coppella/Scorsese) but for me it's as good. If you still haven't seen this then I definitely recommend it!
The DVD is region 1 and picture quality good but the disc has no extras.
