Incorrect listing info!
on November 28, 2014
Let's be very clear, as the bulk of reviews I read (supposedly ranked as most helpful) are misleading! This is a fault of Amazon, and not the reviewers, where Amazon lists ALL reviews, for ALL formats, seemingly on ALL item version pages.
I want only THIS product's reviews, not every other version of it.
Reading reviews, even though listed as DVD format, seemed to be the same product: KoH Director's Cut.
Well, this item is a bare bones, single BluRay disc. There are NO special features to speak of (I do not count throwing in the 2.5min trailer as an extra).
It is the 3hr 9min, fullest version of the film, and it's great at that. Since the issue is not with the film, my review is of the listing page in it's entirety. In addition to reviews that simply do not apply to this product (again, Amazon's fault, not the reviewers) Amazon incorrectly lists this product's run time as 144mins rather than the 190mins it really is.
This is NOT a 4 disc set (though that's for the DVD box set, a BluRay box set would likely be 2-3 discs); there are no extras at all, never mind the hours worth noted on other releases.
All things being equal, you'd probably be better off getting the 10th Anniversary (Ultimate) Edition that claims (based on review as opposed to the item listing info) to be at least 2 BluRay discs with 3 versions of the film and 9hrs of extras.
I have ordered it today and will know next week if that set is all it claims to be. If so I will amend this review accordingly.
3 stars based on 5 for film, 2 for the product listing page being mostly useless or misleading, rounded down to reflect caution.
