Well!! I finally got my copy from Amazon, last week, of the new Blu-Ray + DVD version of Shout At The Devil.
The picture is clear and the sound is good on both versions.
Amazon shows it as 1.85 widescreen format, which should be corrected.
The Blu-Ray/DVD package description reads 2.35:1 Widescreen format, Dolby Digital Mono and Runtime approximate at 150 minutes. The full version.
SPECIAL FEATURES: they only got a Photo Gallery of scenes from the movie.
There are no Scene Selections or Subtitles to choose from, which would have been nice. But I can do without.
On the whole, it is great to see this movie as it should be seen. This is the full version. I totally enjoy it. I recommend this movie to all who have waited for this new Blu-Ray/DVD version to come out. ENJOY!!!
I never saw it in a theater, but have seen it on TV. Enjoyed this movie with Roger Moore and Lee Marvin. Great adventure story taking place in Africa just before and after the outbreak of World War One. Partially based on a true incident involving a German warship taking refuge in the Rufiji River to make repairs. Roger Moore and Lee Marvin are teamed up to help the British in trying to destroy the warship. There are other events in the movie that lead them to this final climax that makes for great adventure story.Read more ›
Story is based on Wilbur Smiths novel of the same name, and loosely based around real events, albeit with fictional characters. Roger Moores Englishman forms an unlikely alliance with Lee Marvin's alcoholic rogue, firstly in the poaching game, and latterly in the fight against the Germans, 1914 style, in Zanzibar. One of the oddest casting decisions is Ian Holm as a loyal mute native!
The story has some appeal for looking at a time and location seldom visited by the cinema, but is hampered by vacillating wildy in tone - what starts as a light hearted buddy movie becomes something more grim as the war against Fleisher the German sadististic local officer becomes revenge, and ultimately climaxes in the battle on the German battleship.
The directing by Peter Hunt, who directed On Her Majestys Secret Service, has its own style, but has dated - and even then does not settle on side of farce or thriller. It is best however when skulking around and mounting tension in the final scenes. It is somewhat of an irony to see how Hunt would have directed Moore in a Bond movie! Hunt also pulled along another Bond veteran, John Glenn, who directed the action scenes for Hunt as second unit director and fulfills that role again here. He rightly went on as a successful director of Bond movies in his own right. Also present from Bond movie lore is Maurice Binder, who famously designed the titles for Bond movies - he performs the same function here albeit in more workmanlike fashion.
If you are thinking of buying - beware - the movie is washed out in colour, and sound is of low quality.Read more ›

Probably AIP's best picture. They were a B movie production company. That seems to have been Sam Arkoff's calling. But this is lots of fun. Of course Marvin steals the movie. Read morePublished 6 months ago by William Samotie
