Great film technically wasted on BluRay
on 10 November 2010
A great sci-fi film which should be put up there with all the greats.. Hacked to pieces by the censors means the violence loses it's dark comic edge and seems a little more serious - but you don't get to see Paul Verhoeven's explanation in the extras. Because there aren't any! Unlike on the DVD edition.
To be honest, a brilliant film, though it is, I cannot understand what I spent my money on, and to be honest I should have got the DVD and let the PS3 do it's upscaling tricks, I was expecting a fully digitally remastered version of the film on this format - thankfully I got this, used, at a lower price.
So to sum up, a great film, but is it really worth paying the extra money for the BD, when it feels like you get much more on the DVD?
