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.
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.
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)

|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?

|Does the Bluray edition of this film have the Manga UK and Bang Zoom! dubs?||
Manga UK dubs? Bang Zoom! dubs?
Never heard of those. Are those of a cast other than the show
cast? Are those the voices that weren't from the series?
If you want the version with the show dubs, go to Amazon.co.uk.
You can log in with your US account, and can have things shipped

The U.K Region 2 will not play on a Region 1 player as it's a different Region. It should play fine on a Region free dvd player. I haven't checked (because I don't own a Region free player - my laptop is set to Region 1) but there could be an issue with the format as well as the Region code. The... Read More
