5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL RIO July 19 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great foreign movie. Takes place in Brasil. A WARNING: For those who don't know what this film is all about, it is VERY, VERY VIOLENT and loosely based on real world events. It is not for the faint of heart. If you can stomach it however, your time will be well spend watching this. They are both pretty long movies. City of God, is outstanding all on its own and it is a bonus to get two movies in one set for about the price of one. Worth a hard look.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 in 1 Oct. 29 2013
By Mariusz Zydyk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A short review of this double-feature release.

This is a single disc release. Two features on one disc. Not two discs, as the product details suggest. When you pop the disc in, you pick which film you want to watch, and that takes you to the menu for that title.

Being on one disc, don't expect a crazy high bitrate on the encode, like some release get. It is not substandard though, and my quick scan through did not identify any glaring quality problems. No film grain was apparent, so I assume it was shot on digital cameras, or at least the image has that "non-film" look to it, with some (re-)compression artefacts apparent in places.

The movies are in the original Portuguese with English subtitles. However, the subtitles are burned in; not cool, in my opinion. -1 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good transfers on one disc. Jan. 9 2014
By crank - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
City of God as a slightly low bitrate that stays in the low twenties but remains a solid encode, though it does look a touch soft. City of Men looks dazzling and has quite a high bitrate. Both films are pretty good but not quite classics in my book. I would think that the 9.99 pricepoint is very suited for this double feature. I really wish they could have been put on two discs but it seems they both made it out okay. Everything else seems fine to me. If you like these films or are interested in the problems presented here then it is a must buy. Stunning cinematography at times. The direction and scripts are mostly good to excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Waiting with Baited Breath Sept. 22 2013
By Daddyo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Okay ..... I am waiting with Baited Breath ......the City of God is a 5 Star Flick but I only gave it 3 Stars because I bought it on Amazon as a 9/24/13 release only because it was advertised ( as was City of Men ) as being an ENLGLISH LANGUAGE version and IF it is......I will edit this review to 5 Stars
If it is NOT in English.....I will return it to Amazon for a refund
I'm not against foreign language films but there is too much happening in City of God that I don't want to be distracted by reading sub-titles when I'm viewing this movie
BTW - I am puzzled as to why Amazon lists this 130 minute movie as being only 97 minutes long for both ( not just one ) of these movies ?
