Here ye be warned: This disc did not play on my US PS3

Whoever's telling folk that this plays on Region A players doesn't know their arse from their elbow (I don't mean you Foxy, but I know of one retailer that's saying this will work on US machines).
As for the reviews, they're spot on (apart from the numpty on amazon
The AVC encode is very nice, with a light layer of grain throughout and some moments of staggeringly crisp fine detail. They have upped the contrast massively in comparison to the Extended R1 DVD though, and white highlights tend to blow out very easily.
The audio is just as described above. The action scenes lack the 'oomph' that comes as standard these days, although the music sounds superb. There's one shot where Stansfield walks into frame and an ominously low note kicked in that had my sub begging for mercy.
