Customer Review

on 3 September 2013
Now, this is one of my all time favorite films. It has great balance between its character development and their friendship to eachother. There is so much violence yet so much more to see. The film itself gets my highest recommendation.

As for this DVD, it was released in 1999 and seems to be a master used for the VHS-release of the film. It's fully watchable but far from perfect. However, what makes this edition shine in comparison to the 2006 re-release is the soundtrack. The re-release had a new soundtrack from Forrest Gump, making it impossible for me to watch. However, this one is 100% true to the original making it a big improvement over the later releases to me. The picture isn't very sharp (letterboxed with burned-in subtitles as well) and the sound is a bit noisy throughout the film, but I can't see any reason for me to prefer the later edition because of the mess-up with the music.

So if you aren't picky with picture-quality and want the original soundtrack, I'd say this is a good choice. If you think an anamorphic transfer with sharper picture is more important than the music, go for the re-release.
