This version did just what I expected it to do, most of the memorable scenes have been tweeked with CGI to give it a more up to date look and these scenes look very nice indeed. However, the transition between pretty new CGI and good old art work is about a subtle as a Sledge Hammer. One minute you're soaked in glorious CGI Cityscapes then you're straight back into the old grainy look (which is better).
Some music/sound effects have been updated most notably at the start during the opening credits but its just polish and still keeps the feel of the original soundtrack.
You won't find anything vastly different in this rendition and the re-furbed scenes are for the most part short and don't always gel very well with the original footage but it doesn't take away any of the films authenticity by over doing the CGI. If you're a collector this is something you would really only need to bolk out you DVD Shelf but to if you're new to the series then this is the modern version for you although seeing as you can pick up the original for the same price as a Peanut then I'd go with that. Happy viewing.
