Critiron Has done it again. This is the best version of Quadrophina I have ever seen. Let's be honest the Rhino DVD version of this was a crime (why do rhino make such great CD's and such horrible DVD's). The audio was passable at best. The picture looked like it came from a bleached out VHS copy. This version has a mind blowing 5.1 mix Concidering the source. The music comes in from all around you. If you have the audio box set with the 5.1 you will know what I am talking about. They use the same mixes here. The picture is very sharp. There is a bit of grain but this was filmed in the late 70's outdoors in England. So I am sure there were many a cloudy day they had to deal with. The story it's self speaks to anyone who hasn't always fit in. It really speaks to you if you have ever hit a really rough part in your life and you found out most of your friends aren't really friends. I think most people have that bonding with friends growing up where you think thick or thin we stand together. This film is partly about that. It's also about trying to figure out where you fit in this world. This film has it all. Great story, excellent acting considering most are nobodies and a killer soundtrack. If you are fan of this film and have seen it on DVD or VHS then you really are in for a treat. I have seen this film at least a dozen times in my life and I grew up with English grandparents so I don't usually have a hard time understanding British people but there are bits of dialog that I am picking up for the first time. Over all ten out of ten!

Motorbikes with multiple rear view mirrors and headlights, pills, snack bar hangouts, gang rumbles, and music by the Who. Quadrophenia, executive produced by the Who, with music produced by bassist John Entwistle, captures a slice of Britain in the 1960's. True, the strong accents may not be understandable to untrained American ears, but to an Anglophile such as myself, it was music to my ears.
The interraction between Jimmy and his friends. He's really taken with Steph, a prize blonde in their circle who seems to be hanging around another Mod. However, he ignores Monkey, who's a nice enough girl, but who in his eyes pales when put aside Steph. Her reaction at his not noticing her is telling, as she seems to have a thing for him. He does okay around the others, such as Dave, Spider, and a black guy named Ferdy, who's the one to go to for buying blues, pills that is. Most curious is the way he sees Kevin, a friend of his who went in the army and left, only to become a Rocker.
Jimmy's life as the post-room boy seems unrewarding. In fact he steals some cheesecake photos he was supposed to deliver and keeps them. Hmm, were those "pictures of Lily"? His late nights also cause consternation to his parents, and he answers them with equal vituperation. He is a typical enough boy, with ... pin-ups, newspaper clippings of Mods versus Rocker riots, and pictures of the Who on his bedroom wall.
A telling scene about what the movie's thematically about comes during a conversation between Kevin and Jimmy. Kevin says he doesn't care one bit about the whole Mods and Rockers nonsense. Jimmy then says, "I don't want to be the same as everybody else. That's why I'm a Mod, see? I mean, you gotta be somebody, ain't ya? Or you might as well jump in the sea and drown.

Format: DVD
Excellent image quality
great movie
the DVD is set for European format so you need to reset your computer and later revert it to american format.
Hard to do that on a plain dvd player.

Format: DVD
I have been waiting a long time for the release of a special edition version of this film, and must say that I have been let down by the final release. The film tells the story of a young mods life in 60's England. I love the film and have been a fan of it for a long time. The problem with this release is that it is not the complete film. There are scenes missing that are on on the original UK VHS version. The extras are bad, if you're expecting indepth stories and details about the film, you will like me be disappointed. They are made for an audience with no understanding of the medium it is trying to cover. This just makes it annoying. For a first time viewer, they will be just light, boring and very short entertainment. The interview with Sting has a lot of trouble finding anything that Sting said about the film. The scooter part is about 40 seconds long! The restored film has better colour than the VHS, but this is about the only good point. With missing scenes and bad extras this is not for anyone who likes the film and wants a DVD version of the film to keep. Why dosen't someone give this the release it deserves? Love the film hated the DVD.

Format: DVD
The film is such a gritty & powerful snapshot of life in early 60's England, set to the stirring music of The Who, that it is hard not to get swept up in the whole atmosphere of it, however, the remastering to DVD leaves alot to be desired, & the fact that several important scenes have been left out of the film with no reason or explanation, not even a "deleted scenes" feature on the menu, makes the DVD release hard to enjoy & some aspects of the story difficult to get for the first time viewer.
I would say try & track down a copy of the 80's VHS version, the audio might not be as good, but you get all the scenes & to be honest, the picture quality is no different.
Sorry, but the DVD just isn't worth it....
