Secondly: the DVD is different from the original airing on HBO. All of the bands whose music was featured in 24/7 have been cut out and replaced with generic instrumentation. I realize that for some, it probably won't make a difference but it really bothered me. The music of bands like The xx and Band of Horses coupled with the beautifully shot montages was what really elevated this documentary to another level and separated it from everything else we've seen about hockey. Anyway, like I said, some won't be bothered by this but I felt it significantly changed the feel from cinematic to average. Really disappointed with that.
No extras, either. Clearly that would've been nice, as fans.
Bottom line: If you are a Caps or a Pens fan you will probably still want to own this. But just be warned: no blu-ray, all the good music has been removed and replaced, no extras to speak of.
I did enjoy getting to see the locker room and off-ice scenes of both teams' players. It was an interesting insight to how the players live, as most people only get to see them in the 60 minutes they play. It'd be nice to see more films like this, going behind the scenes of different teams.
The cinematography is still excellent, as is the narration, and getting to see into the lives and minds of these coaches and players is worth it. Especially since I, for one, can't find the full series anywhere else.
