If someone reports back that the video is much improved over the original, I will pick it up. But, I'll wait till that happens before I buy.

This may be a region B only release.

Of course it MAY be...but it may not be. Have Concorde's other releases been region-coded?

The Concorde releases I know of aren't region coded, so I don't know why it would. Unless the other poster heard differently.

This is what these guys have right now.

It's released tomorrow so hopefully we have a confirmation of region and PQ from this website soon.

http://bluray.liesinc.net/index.php?region=b


I've been on an import frenzy recently. I've just picked up Walk the Line/Chicken Run and Transporter 1/2 Uncut with better Video from Amazon France on a buy 1 get 1 sale. I also picked up The Island and Predator 2 from Amazon UK on buy 2 get 1 free sale. I am thinking of picking up In Bruges(Norway, Finish or French versions) and I may go for the Italian Job. I have the HD DVD of the Italian Job and I just can't see my self buying the DD blu ray version at this point.

Well if it's region B only then that's the deal breaker but yeah, after this was first posted I've been very interested in this release!

I may bite... I have this on HDDVD and could'nt see replacing it with a DD blu ray version. Also it looks like this is a VC1 encode while the blu ray is MPEG-2. I think this german release is a DTS-MA sound track merged with the original HDDVD VC-1 transfer. I looked at hidefdigest's review and they call out some of the same issues the German reviewers did regarding some softness and some edge enhancement. I'll wait till it comes up on sale from Amazon.de...

Anyone bite on the German Edition?


There's also a new Japanese version coming out on 4/1. Price is about $50 right now. No thanks.
