Great film - rubbish Bluray.
on 13 December 2012
Obviously this is a 5 star film - it's an absolute classic; but it gets 3 stars here as I'm reviewing the Bluray release which leaves a lot to be desired.
The picture quality was good but the sound was terrible, with parts of the dialogue totally inaudible in the mix. I don't remember this problem with the DVD release?
On a positive note, if you haven't seen the film you really must. Paddy Consadine gives a terrifying performance as Anthony's Brother and ex boxer Gary Stretch shines in his role too (even though his character is a pathetic bully).
A few extras would have been nice too. All in all, a pretty poor Bluray release. If it wasn't such a great film I would have only given it 2 stars out of 5.
