Great Movie - Horrendous Voice-Over choice in this blu ray edition
on August 1, 2014
I love this movie - it's a classic of gritty, character-driven crime drama. but this edition blu ray includes the overdubbed speaking parts of Sid Fletcher et al in the opening scene of the film, when they're telling Carter not to go up north. The US distributors thought that the original cockney accents were not understandable to Americans, so they overdubbed them with terrible voice acting. For this, I give the edition one star as so much of the greatness of this film is in the way the lines are delivered.
