5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon, quit blending the DVD releases with the Blu-ray! September 30, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Blu-Ray of this movie is awesome, they have fixed the mistakes of the orginal DVD version, and should be rated overall five stars, the problem, Amazon, has mixed the reviews from the old dvd with the blu ray, skewing the star results and reviews, Amazon, needs to keep the review for DVDs and Blu rays seperate, even if its the same movie the format is different an offers different things, and I would like to see reviews for the blu ray not the old dvd. If you agree Let your voices be heard..

I do not know who at Dreamworks was responsible for this travesty of a DVD, but I would like to meet them so that I could tell them in person what a total hash they have made of the best anime (and one of the best films PERIOD) of the year. Never mind the imbecilic cover art (which in no way reflects the breath-taking art in the film) - WHAT is the rationale for HEARING IMPAIRED subtitles?? I always use subtitles - but as so many other people have written, I don't need to be informed of the sounds in the background. The theatrical release didn't have such intrusive subtitles - why are they here?!?! And let's face it - dubbing is not exactly a novelty on ANY foreign DVD: why not make it available here? I can only assume that, as usual, the corporate honchos at Dreamworks didn't actually SEE this, and handed it off to some hack who got their job because of knowing someBODY, not because they were competant. I will be waiting for Dreamworks (or maybe someone else with more intelligence) to re-release this. In the meantime - DON'T waste your money on THIS DVD - rent it if you want to see it, but DENY Dreamworks any more dough until they get their act together and put out a quality DVD that this film so richly deserves.

1.0 out of 5 stars Movie gets 5, DVD gets 0 December 28, 2004
Format:DVD
The movie is worth the money alone, an amazing sequel from another amazing movie. definitely the best anime movie i've ever seen.

However, the dvd sucks. sucks alot.

Dreamworks put no effort at all into this. let me list the cons

-bland, boring artwork

-no real special features, simply imported from the jap. dvd release

-no english track (how stupid can you be?)

-the subtitle option is quite annoying, implying that the audience must all be deaf because they feel the need to subtitle every little sound you hear...

its clear that dreamworks simply wanted to put this out as fast as they possiby could to cash in on the hype. it shows simply from the fact that the japanese got their dvd in november.. now how often does an anime come out here 1 month after the japanese release? usually it takes a year.

i bought this because i love the movie, but i wish someone else would have gotten the rights to it. if dreamworks acquires another good anime.. i will cry.

there is no doubt in my mind that within a year or two from now there will be a "special" version that will have REAL special features, better artwork and packaging, and OH MY GOD an english track.

Basically it will be the version that should have been from the get-go.

Screw you dreamworks, you don't know what the fans want. you're anime distrubiting ways sicken me. why couldn't you just let bandai/manga get the rights to this seeing how THEY HAVE THE REST OF THE FRANCHISE UNDER THEIR BELT. bandai would have made this the way it should have been.

1.0 out of 5 stars (SOUND OF DEEP SIGH FOLLOWED BY SOUND OF GROANING) December 28, 2004
Format:DVD
(Sound of fingers typing on keyboard CLICK..CLACK...CLICK)

I am amazed by the terrible transfer(SOUND OF MAN BREATHING IN) this impressive film has (SOUND OF MAN BREATHING OUT) received. At first i thought this dvd was

a winner; original japanese mix in 5.1, directors commentary. This is more than most foreign films offer on dvd.(SOUND OF MAN SHIFTING IN CHAIR) But oh the dissapointment when I played the movie. It plays english captions not english

subtitles. The very first scene in the film starts with the caption(HELLICOPTER APPROACHING). At first I figured it was my dvd player not the dvd, why would

they sell a dvd stricly for those fluent in Japanese and the english speaking hearing impaired. (SOUND OF RAPID TYPING) After about an hour of tampering with my dvd

player settings(MAN COUGHS) I realized that this dvd was in fact made to drive its viewer into a minor hysteria(MAN SCREAMS WOOP WEEEEHAA). But the menu is pretty cool(BREAKING GLASS LOUD YELLING)

1.0 out of 5 stars Great film but there is a BIG problem with the subtitles! December 21, 2004
Format:DVD
I've just this morning recieved this DVD (I live in the UK and my local stockist of American DVD's got it in early) and there is a BIG mistake with the subtitles.

It only has subtitles for the hearing impaired! (IE as well as the dialogue you get bracketed titles saying Helicopter Noises, Gunfire, Crashing Sound, Singing In Japanese etc).

Usually there would be 2 English tracks - 1 with just dialogue and another with dialogue + sound descriptions - but the only other English subtitle track on the disc is for the commentary.

Quite why this is I have no idea but I just thought I'd let everyone know this in case they were thinking of buying it.

The sound effect descriptions are VERY distracting and spoil the film completely.

Innocence is a great film but I believe fans should boycott this disc until another version with correct subtitles is released.

Has the subtitle problem been fixed?
What problem? I don't have the English dub, just standard DVD--thought the subtitles were suppose to be that way.... Just watched it---seems okay to me. Do you have Blu-ray or is it defective?
