A Great Movie...,
This review is from: The Untouchables (DVD)
... but a horrible DVD. As a film alone, I would give it 5 stars. But this rating is for the DVD. Yes, we all know that The Untouchables is a great movie. It's one of DePalma's best, if not the best. Peformances by Costner, Connery, and DeNiro are top rate. Mamet pulls off a tight screenplay.
However, what about the features in this DVD? I mean isn't that why we buy DVD's over VHS? For the great bonus features? They waited for awhile to release The Untouchables on DVD and all we get is the standard set of options... chapter search, subtitles, widescreen, etc... What DVD doesn't have that already? Where are the deleted scenes, directory/actor commentary, making of film, storyboards, interviews, etc...? Any features on this DVD are scant and disappointing.
Being a huge fan of this movie, I was disappointed with this DVD. The lack of features makes me believe that they will issue a Collector's Edition in the future with all these great bonuses. If you already have the widescreen VHS version of The Untouchables, don't bother.
