Packaging / Design

To me, this is a very well designed steelbook. It's clean, it's stylish, it's simple and good looking. I know it's not the only steelbook around for this film but it's certainly one to consider if you like steelbooks.

What else can I say? Go get it!


Disc contents / Extras

This release is pretty packed and seems identical to the other 2 disc sets released in 2007 (like the R1 for instance).

Image and audio quality feels good and I really can't find anything to complain about. Good extras, good quality overall and top ranking in comparison to other editions as well.


Sidenotes

As you can se from the barcode sticker - visible in image # 3 - this steelbook is a general release for the whole Scandinavian region and that the barcode for each country appears on the sticker.

With this said, it's quite possible that it's not OOP in Finland, Norway and Denmark even though it's no longer available in Sweden.

I remember reading about this steelbook on this site a few months ago. Last night I was browsing around ebay for random blu-ray steelbooks and this steel popped into my head. So I typed into the search bar not thinking I would find anything. Lo and behold I find one sealed and in mint condition with the starting bid at $30. I wasn't going to let it slip out my hands so paid the buy it now price of $40. What are the chances huh?

Hej jay. Sadly, I believe this is OOP so you'll have a hard time finding it. However, I have seen a couple on ebay every now and then.

Phenominal! Great site Oskar! One of my all time favorite movies! I wish I was able to find this online somewhere to ship to the U.S.
