This DVD collection gives you two versions of LEGEND -- the original director's cut with over twenty minutes of added footage and the original Goldsmith score; and in addition, you get the original US release. In essence you get two different movies! The moods vary, the characters seem a little different, with whole new speeches and images to enjoy. If you are a fan of the movie or Ridley Scott it's a MUST-HAVE! This is what DVD dreams are made of. While many bemoan the fact BLADE RUNNER does not come with its 2 versions -- the fact is other than the narration and the happy ending, there is not MUCH different. But here we have a case where you can see what happens to a movie as it goes through development HELL. Fascinating stuff, and it comes LOADED with extras.
The only downside is the director's cut gets the royal treatment of a 5.Read more ›
Legend wasn't too well received in theaters and was not a favorite among most critics but it has quickly become a cult classic with fantasy lovers like me. Considering the low budget director Ridley Scott was given in order to make this film in the mid-80s, I thought they did a wonderful job in bringing William Hjortsberg's dark fairytale to life, which was written specifically for the screen. I also felt the entire cast put on remarkable performances - especially Tim Curry who went through hell (pun intended) to look as devilish as he does here...Read more ›
Legend is one of "those" movies for me. Like many of the movies I saw when I was young, it helped define my childhood. I first saw Legend during its first televised airing in Canada at about the age of 8. My mother taped it off television for me, and over my unicorn obsessed childhood it became etched into my memory. Strangely, I have never been able to find in stores the version I saw then.
When the taped-from-tv version finally gave out on me, my mother bought for me an official VHS Legend release for Christmas. I watched the movie with a sense of horror as I found that scenes that I felt were pivotal or pleasurably memorable to the movie were not present. The two notable scenes which were missing were the scene in which Gump riddles Jack about moonbells, and the one in which Jack faces the witch on his way to Darkness. The lack of these scenes brought the movie's greatness down a few notches for me. Perhaps if I'd never seen it with those scenes I wouldn't have noticed, but knowing just what was missing, and what the movie was without them, ruined something for me. So, when I found Legend: Ultimate Edition, I decided to buy it to see if the Director's Cut was the better version. However, I was aware when I bought it that my childhood version of Legend featured the Tangerine Dream score, and not the original. So I wasn't really sure of what I was getting with the Director's Cut. As this two-disc set includes both the US theatrical release and the Director's Cut, I also kind of hoped maybe something might be different with the U.S. version. (Nope.Read more ›

The Tangerine dream version seemed more dark as for the Goldsmith Score which seem more family oriented.

Amazon.com is the most accurate. They added the running times of both films: 90 minutes (theatrical) and 114 (extended).
The Ultimate Edition containing both films lists the running time for each film. After that DVD came out, a single-disc DVD containing only the extended cut was released. Hope... Read More
