Packaging / Design

"I love the smell of something that's not quite velcro in the morning!". A very nice design for a very nice film. The outer cardboard-case feels very nice but I'm a bit undecided about the locking-mechanism. It's like a very plastic velcro-thing. It snaps together very nicely and doesn'treally have any fabric-parts, so it will probably not get "fuzzy" after a while like your regular velcro. However, it seems like a very odd thign and I'm not sure how well it will function if you open and close it very frequently. But on the other hand that could probably be said about any case.

The digipack is very glossy and even comes with a very nicely embossed logo on the front cover. All in all a simple, fitting, well mad case. Not a revolution by any means but a very nice case. I'm also very happy with the overall idea of the beige cardboard being done in the form of a confidential information folder as this surely adds a great deal to the "display-value" of this timeless little war epic.


Disc contents / Extras

Now, I've never really been a major fan of this film (I hadn't really seen it prior to purchasing this edition - war movies just havn't been my favourite genre I guess) so I guess it's kind of hard to rate the extras... But I'll do my best anyway.

There's been a lot of talk about the missing "Heart of Darkness" documentary, but to me this seems like the only real downpart of this set. Scanning through the second disc we obviously get quite an extensive batch of extras. So in the end I will mark it at an 8 just for the time spand. I mean, it's pretty much all there on the flyer; "over two hours of bonus materials", and I don't hink anyone is complaining about that round up.

However, another minus in my book would be the use of yellow subtitles. I don't know why this is done or what purpose it serves but it looks terrible.

All in all, probably still the best release for this film so far.


Sidenotes

The Film is split over two discs (though this should be obvious if you read through the disc specs).
