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.

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.

About this bluray collection May 25 2014
By Cesar Bolaños - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Not much to say about the movies that you cannot see in IMDB by yourself. City of God is great, City of men is, well, ok

Regarding this blu-ray edition, only burned-in english subtitles are available, which is bad. I really so not like editions that do not have other subtitle options, nor the option to simply hide them.

Three starts only due to this

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.

This is described as a 2 disc set. It's not. Both movies are on a single blu ray disc.
