PICTURE QUALITY: It's okay...not nearly as sharp and beautiful as the DVD release of "The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly" for instance. You probably won't consider this the definitive release of this film on disc...it seems at times slightly out-of-focus...not enough to distract from the story, but enough to prevent the viewer from basking in the glory of the location shots, etc. However, it is presented in true widescreen, so you do get a lot more "picture" than with the VHS versions. Finally, you really can see all of the "wild bunch" as they race towards Henry Fonda...what a treat!
SOUND: The sound on the DVD is relatively good...but the music seems to have been recorded too "hot"...in other words, when the music gets loud, it tends to distort and crackle. This is not good news for Morricone fans. Aside from that though, the voices and sound effects are clear and true.
EXTRAS: The DVD features a bio of Morricone, and even presents the "soundtrack" itself, so that you can click on a particular song title and simply listen to it like a music CD. The quality of the audio on this portion is better than in the film itself.
In conclusion, this isn't the definitive "My Name Is Nobody" on DVD. If you buy it, chances are you'll still hope against hope that a legitimate, remastered version will come along someday. But it is certainly better than watching the pan-and-scan VHS version.
I originally wrote this review in 2003, it is now 2014 and I still find this to be one of my favorite Westerns of all time. I first saw this movie on TV while at my closest friends house around 1978. Back then you couldn't buy it on VHS Tape and you could only record it if you had lots of money for a VCR recorder. So happened he had one. Now it's on DVD, Blu Ray, and Digital.Read more ›
For those looking to upgrade, the transfer on this new Image dvd release is FAR SUPERIOR to the older WHAM dvd release.
No extras at all but the main menu does feature several actual scenes from the film with Morricone's score playing in the background. No theatrical trailer.
It is said that Leone himself actually directed two or three scenes from the movie. Reason enough to buy. Give it a watch and see if you can identify the Leone directed scenes...
