I saw this at the cinema when it first came out and thought it was fresh and funny.
The transfer is very good, bright and sunny as Miami should be and the DTS HD track is very loud but it is the commentary that will make you laugh.
Michael Bay has become the director who will destroy anything for his films and love him or hate him, his films are entertaining.
This was his debut film and he spends his time holding his head saying how he cannot believe he shot a scene like that and would do so many things different today.
Although part 2 was long and waaaaaaaaaay overlong, i will certainly be adding it to my collection when it is available.
When this forst came out back in 1995, it was brilliant. Looking at the movie now, it IS slightly dated and some scenes are abit too cheesy. But nonetheless it's still a Michael Bay classic.
The Blu ray print and sound are superb BUT the extras are a disappointment as they could have done more. They're the same as they are on the DVD Edition. The only Blu ray Exclusive is Movie IQ. That's really not enough to be honest with you.
It's still worth buying it on Blu ray!!
I must say i was a little dissapointed with the picture quality on this,in my opinion not a great leap in picture quality over the DVD version.I thought the remastered DTS MA was a touch dissapointing plenty of front sounstage and yes there was effects in the rears but hardly dynamic.I know you buy a film more for the enjoyment of the film itself plot,acting ETC but i like the full package good surround sound and visuals.After all thats what you buy into BLURAY for.But still a deserved solid 4 stars because the film is still fantastic, a fine blend of action and comedy.Here is hanging on for bad boys 2 on BLURAY.Lets hope sound and visuals are better
