Terrible DVD version of a great 80's film,
This review is from: Big Easy [DVD] [US Import] (DVD)
Cutting the final scene was idiotic! The thriller element was only ever a vehicle for the romance to which you're now ROBBED of a satisfying conclusion.
Skip this atrocity until it's re-issued whole - which it's bound to be - the seduction scene between Quaid / Barkin is consistantly voted one of the best 'sex scenes' on film.
Menawhile borrow the complete (VHS) version if you have a way to watch it & try the soundtrack or even better visit New Orleans itself...
