Great Film But DVD Quality Picture,
This review is from: The Fugitive [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Just wanted to make the quick point that this film is an excellent action film (4 stars) but there's not really any point in getting it on Blu-ray as the picture quality is not much better than DVD. I assume this is due the quality of the film prints they had to work with the film being a bit older.
Edit: We have a much better HD TV now and whilst you can see more detail (e.g. skin imperfections if really look) the overall quality doesn't have the Lushness and clarity you'd expect from HD. Now it's possible that orginally film was shot like that (deliberate and a nod to the old TV show or just not great quality?) but for me didn't look too much better than DVD quality. If you love this film then probably get the blu ray but if its a more casual buy I'd consider the DVD.

I totally agree with you. I bought this recently and was expecting a decent transfer, but was let down. This is the same picture quality as the standard DVD. A film such as this, rightly deserves the 1080 treatment. Superb film, but I too was disappointed in the lazy transfer.
