I agree with almost every other review written here. This is one top class film - plot, cast, action, dialogue, character development... you name it, brilliant!

However, this is a prime example of poor quality Blu-Ray conversion, does not do the format much justice at all. Seems as though it has been rushed through the conversion process far too quickly.

1) The sound quality is lacking. This is particularly noticeable during loud action sequences, for example, even within the first 10 minutes during the fantastic 'secured car hold-up' scene - when the articulated lorry hits the van there is shocking sound quality: harsh and crackly, detracts from the film really. Gun shot sounds don't pack much punch either!
2) Picture quality is good but not what I'd expect from a Blu-Ray - particularly grainy in low light scenes (first noticeable in the enquiry Al Pacino's character makes after the hold-up).

Overall I am pleased because I now own my first copy of this film after a friend introduced me to it. But I am slightly disappointed that the film is not up to the usual high quality standard to be expected from a Blu-Ray! Hencce, 4 stars!

This is one of my favourite films, and I now have it in three versions. I won't review the film as such, because others do it better, but mention has of course to go to the magnificent shoot-out. I could watch that again and again.

Anyway, to the blu-ray: The picture quality is better than DVD, but certainly not reference material. I was pretty disappointed by the sound, to be honest. I have a fairly decent system set quite loud, but found the dialogue to be quite indistinct at times. I also felt that the background music was simply too low in places. However, the shoot-out was pretty good, with glass tinkling at my feet, but the airport scene had the best effects, with massive LFE from taxi-ing planes and great directional effects from take-offs and landings.

Is it worth the upgrade? If you love the film like many do, you'll buy it anyway, as I did. I don't regret it, but feel that it can still get better, which means yet another upgrade in the future.

This release truly was a gargantuan disappointment. "Heat" is one of my all-time favorites and Michael Mann one of my favorite directors. I actually did not have huge expectations to this first incarnation of Heat on Blu-Ray--knowing the problems that exist on both the original 1999 DVD release (which I might add was pretty ok at the time, but not by today's standards) and the subsequent 2005 "Special Edition" (which had some interesting extras and commentary, but no change to the feature itself.)

But I mean honestly, I am in awe that not only does this disc have basically _the same_ audio track (re-encoded into Dolby TrueHD)--complete with the same muffled audio which for the most part totally lacks any kind of force, and dialogue which in some places is so low it borders on being ridiculous.
I can honestly say that it had no improvement, whatsoever, over the Japanese DTS edition which was released a couple of years back (which also is far from perfect.)

Ok, granted. The audio is not 100%--that I might be able to live with. After all--this is close to being my favorite movie. However, it also has received a *minimal* upgrade on the video side.

No, I am not referring to the inherent film grain. This disc has many scenes which look like they are taken straight off the original DVD and upscaled to 1080p. The lack of detail is most prominent when pausing the movie at certain scenes. Background detail also varies strongly throughout. Yes, it is a Blu-Ray and obviously it will look better than the DVD but I have a quite respectable stack of older movies which completely puts this release in the dust. The bitrate is for the most part around 15-22Mbit/s, peaking at just under 30 in some cases; but seldom reaching this point.

This is the ideal boxset for Robert De Niro fans and for movie fans.
'The Deer Hunter' brings Robert De Niro to Vietnam as a leader of a steelworker group. There is so much energy in all the characters that get involved in the deep story. They get captured by the viet Cong. I don't want to spoil it but it's a very emotionally powerful film which brings all the characters to extreme limits.
'The Deer Hunter' won 5 Oscars.
'Goodfellas' has to be the best gangster film I have seen. Im not a major fan but this was just ace. Ray Liotta tells the story about how he always wanted to be a gangster. As he grows up he becomes well known, influencal and gets involved with the big cats including Robert De Niro as Jimmy.
The gangster feeling goes so far and all the crimes in it are so real and exciting. In the end you find out the real end to these gangsters. Robert De Niro plays amazingly and not surpisingly the film got 6 Oscor nominations.
In 'Heat' Robert De Niro is a master thief against Al Pacino as the LA cop. The cast is so amazing that it has to be the best cop film of the 90s. The action sequences are superb and Pacino's furious, aggitated character makes the police investigations so thrilling. Robert De Niro playing the baddest of the bad has superb intelligence and lets nothing get in the way of him.
The best Boxset to come with 3 excellently directed, casted and acted films.
