WARNING--botched sound--WAIT FOR SPECIAL EDITION RELEASE
on February 5, 2000
The one star I give is because of this version, not the movie itself. THE SOUND IS FAULTY! The left front and rear speaker merge the sound. If you already have purchased this movie I suggest starting it at 31:00 and you will hear the gunshot, noticibly flawed. The thing is, Disney has admitted to the mistake yet comments this does not warrant a recall? Sorry, but if I buy a shirt and it has even a tiny hole, I'm going to want to exchange it for one without the hole. And that exchange should not bring about an argument with the reseller. Disney apparantly does not feel the same way....
For those who have not bought this movie already, WAIT AND THERE WILL BE A SPECIAL EDITION COMING OUT IN APRIL WITH THE MISTAKE CORRECTED. The mistake will also obviously be corrected in future pressings of this edition, but with 700,000 already pressed you would not be able to know if you were getting a 'good' copy. The special edition will also have more extras that so many people have complained the previous Disney releases ignored.
On a brighter side, the movie itself I would rate a 5. The distorted noise doesn't make the movie unwatchable...you just feel cheated. One last comment to a previous response who said that the sound was bad because it was 5.0 instead of 5.1: this is how it was released in theaters as well; it is not a mistake or way of cutting the cost.
