Got this from the US last year. A superb Blu-ray package; first class picture and audio, fantastic extras; the transfer has got to be seen and heard to be believed.
Order it NOW!
One of the great films of all time, on one of the best Blu-ray's ever.
Knockout!

 Amazing package...

This film is very much like Marmite. You either love it or hate it. But by now, most people are familiar with the film itself, so I will review the package itself.

First of all, the price for what you get is a bargain! It's nice to see they have released the film on Blu-Ray for the first time in such a lovingly put together package - instead of milking the fans as much as they can buy going down the multiple-releases route.

The packaging is very nice. Sturdy cardboard slip case with tasteful artwork a cardboard digipak pull out to hold the three discs (also with nice artwork of various characters.)
Also in with the boxset is a collectors booklet that contains notes on production and scripting as well as some legal documentmentation that floated around on set. There is also a reproduction of the theatrical release souvenir which is a nice touch. Finally, a few postcards are included.

The discs themselves - disc one contains both the theatrical and Redux versions of the film. Unlike other films with multiple cuts - this film really differs when both versions are watched. Audio and Visual quality are amazing and greatly improved upon from the DVD release.

If you already have the DVD version, sell it for a couple of quid and pick up this Blu-Ray version. You wont' regret it!

 Simply the best Vietnam film made
