1.0 out of 5 stars Great film. Terrible Blu-Ray, 3 Aug. 2013
This review is from: The Great Escape [Blu-ray] [1963] (Blu-ray)
I was really looking forward to seeing this in HD for this first time: it's a classic film with a great (mostly true) story and an stellar cast.

Unfortunately this HD transfer is SO bad that it's left me wanting my money back.

From the opening faded scenes with it's over emphasized red/blue colour correction, to the blurry later scenes which had me reaching for my lens cleaner, this release could only have come about as a result of very careless restoration and poor source material.

This Blu-Ray is not a well deserved HD restoration of a classic war movie: it's a disaster movie.
And I'm SO disappointed to say that.

Avoid this 50th Anniversary Edition like the plague and hope that a better version is issued for the 51st anniversary.

It's hard to imagine any release which would not be better than this.
