I bought this Blu-ray, a few weeks ago. On this Combo, it said it was the Director's Cut for the Blu-ray with 11 minutes of additional footage and while DVD is the original theatrical version at 94 mintues. But the information is sadly a misprint. I was surprised, it said, it was the Director's Cut but it is not true. Still, the original theatrical cut is still an excellent movie. The Blu-ray has all the bonus features from the Two-Disc DVD Set. No "New" Special Features sadly but maybe in a 20th Anniversary Edition in the possible future...
Director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Sunshine, 28 Days Later) and Actor Ewan McGregor (Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, Haywire, Nightwatch "Remake") certainly become well known after this movie. Especially Boyle won an Oscar for "Slumdog Millionaire" for Best Director and McGregor always finds work as a actor, even if his choices have been so-so lately.
Blu-ray has an strong anamorphic 1080P 1.85:1 transfer, which the colors are strong and shows more detail in quality and print for the movie. DTS 5.1 HD Sound is terrific at times, especially when the music played in the movie and the dialogue is always clear. There is no used to adjust volume to the movie, if you watch it on your Widescreen TV with Home Theater Sound System. It is a good thing, the Blu-ray has subtitles, since the actors accents are hard to understand at times.
This Blu-ray is terrific, it is the Lionsgate Blu-ray from last year. Die-Hard fans of the movie should get this. The DVD is enhanced for Widescreen TV and it has an DTS Track as well and Dolby Digital 5.1 track. It is seperate from the two-disc set. Sadly, it is not a Director's Cut for some fans are hoping for. But i doubt Boyle would do a Director's Cut to his excellent film. Which it has a huge cult following ever since. It is still one of Boyle's best movies as a filmmaker. Get this Blu-ray/DVD Combo cheap as you can. If you never seen this movie, prepare yourself to be dazzled with its originality, daring choices and very black comedy. One of the best movies of 1996. Grade:A for the movie. Grade:A- for the Blu-ray Video Transfer and Sound.
