Limited Edition blu-ray steelbook is pretty good
on January 3, 2014
The limited edition blu-ray steelbook of the movie Se7en is pretty good. Not the best steelbook I've ever seen though. The front of it is identical to the original blu-ray release (the black and red cover with the "Seven Deadly Sins" written all over the front of it, except Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman's names are NOT at the top). The back has a picture or Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman from the chest up, holding flashlights, and looking into the direction of the camera. There is no inside artwork. The quality of this steelbook is good. The colour quality of the front is very nice, but I think the back of it could've been slightly better. Would've been nice to have some sort of inner artwork as well. Build quality is solid.
This release only contains the one blu-ray disc which contains the movie and special features. The 1080p picture quality and 7.1 DTS HD-MA audio are exceptional. VERY well done! You won't be disappointed with this release. I also want to point out that this release has Se7en in it's correct aspect ratio of 2.40:1. There are some really neat special features including four audio commentary tracks, deleted scenes, alternate endings, photo gallery featurettes, three different versions of the opening title sequence, etc. The extras are definitely worth checking out.
Like I said, this is a pretty good steelbook. Would've been nice to have some inner artwork, but I got this for a pretty low price here on Amazon, so I'm not going to complain too much. If you can get it for around the $10 mark, or if you're a big fan of Se7en, then it's an easy recommend.
