As some others have said, it is disapointing thatg the longer version (Uncut version) is just in standard DVD, people are different but IW ould much rather sit down and watch the full/longer version in HD picture and sound than the edited version. Only thing I would say is the shorter version is better paced out and the longer version does seem to drag on but as it is Bruce Campbell and army of darkness, I do not mind it dragging on, what i mean by drag on is the battle sequences seem to go on for a very long time. But it is annoying that they release a film on blu ray and they have both versions on it and only the shorter version has been mastered to HD picture....they did the same thing with dawn of the dead...the longer version was in stereo and in standard DVD picture quality yet the cut to shreds version had all the perks...yes annying.
I would agree partially with the other reviews the uncut version isnt in HD but i am reviewing this as a blu ray and as blu ray transfer go this is awesome considering the old version was grainy this is sharp and the colours are vivid and has never looked better on blu ray.
I have not given it 5 stars based on the face that they didnt give the blu ray treatment to both versions of the film.
It's a one disc blu-ray but with both versions of the movie.
One: The theatrical version. 81 Min, audio- dtshd master audio.
Two: The director's cut. 96 Min, dd2.0 with audio commentary of sam raimi and star bruce campbell. There are no subs on the disc. Same extra's as the 2-disc dvd version.
One of the funniest horror movie's ever made.
