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.

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

HASH(0x9ede16a8) out of 5 stars Good transfers on one disc. Jan. 9 2014

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.

Let me start by saying I am a long time fan of the entire City of God & City of Men spin-off series. I was mesmerized by the first film, City of God, which I saw in the early 00s and was looking forward to replacing my stolen Dvd with the blu ray version. Initially I was only looking for City of God (which is the superior film of the two) but decided on this double feature since its two for the price of one. I should've done my homework because this version has NO special features for either film. The hard hitting documentary ' News from a personal war ' that was on my dvd version is no where to be found. I am so disappointed because I wanted the doc as much as the movie. Boo on Miramax because they're the same company that released the original dvd, why cut out the extras? As for City of Men I haven't seen that movie in years and can't remember what its special features were though I do remember some behind the scenes interviews. This version seems like a quick flip into the market since there are no setup menus or subtitle options. The English subtitles are burned into the film which others have complained about but doesn't bother me since I don't speak Portuguese and the subtitles would always be on anyway. However if you need French or Spanish subtitles you're out of luck. So sad I wanted to give City of God a five star rating and even though City of Men is more three stars I still would've rated it higher were this not such a lacking version.
