On first look I found the artwork to be pretty dull but I guess that's mainly because the design has allready been seen on other regions. But the digipack however, has not. And once you get passed the allredy familiuar look of the cover, the digipack itself is actually quite good looking.
The features feel a bit short but are still entertaining enough to pass for a 7 on the overall scoreboard. However, a feature length commentary would have made all the difference in the world on this one, so hopefully this is something we'll get to see in the near future on some other region.
Menus are available in both english and french and look really good on the whole. The second disc features multiple subtitles for all the featurettes, whilst the first disc (and it's featurette) comes with optional english or french subs.
At first I thaught this packaging was a simple case of first press vs regular press but now I'm not so sure. It appears that there are actually TWO digipack pressings for this release. I'm not sure which pressing was the initial run but judging from images uploaded over at DvdPascher.net there's an alternate pressing that features IDENTICAL artwork, but with a slipcase that's lacking the cardboard cut-out present on this version. My guess would be that the initial run was the one without the cut-out, and if you want to go by that, then this release would be the second pressing... but like I said, I can't be sure one way or the other.
