HOWEVER, the Blu-ray version is VERY poor quality, the SD DVD version actually looks better. There is A LOT of graining in the Blu-Ray version, it's as if they got the compression all wrong. I'm running this from some high end audio/video equipment on a 63" Mitsubishi DLP and Sony BD player thru Harmon Kardon (all have the most recent firmware updates) -- this is the ONLY BD I've purchased that has this terrible graining. Even tested it on my MacPro using my LG BD player and noticed the same graining problem.
I came up with a 3 rating because the film content is excellent worth a 5 star, however, the BD image quality get a 1 star, hence the resulting 3 stars. Unfortunate mess up, but I have to say go with the standard SD DVD version.
It's particularly unusual because there's a huge array of different characters, yet they're all quite distinct in a way that you have zero problems remembering who is who and what they're after. They have a feeling like they're real. Since it is the mileau where Guy Ritchie, the creator, lived in, it seems likely that it's an at least partly true story.
The first film from Guy Ritchie. Watch this one along with Snatch and the two Sherlock Holmes films, of his works. As it's his first, it's worth watching first, as it's possibly his best due to story but, in terms of technique and development, probably the "roughest".
All that being said, the Blu Ray itself didn't impress me. It was very grainy and didn't feel at all as if I was watching a movie in high definition. But for the price, I suppose I can't complain too much. So I still gave it four stars because the movie is great and the price is cheap. But I would imagine this Blu Ray is so cheap because it's widely understood that the transfer isn't all that great.
The quality of the disc is not exactly topnotch, low light & dark scenes come across grainy, but the quality of the movie makes you forget this minor problem.

Good movie, got for my husband because it is one of his favoritesPublished 1 month ago by K. Schoenbaum
It's hard to go wrong with early Guy Ritchie. If you've already seen Snatch, most of this movie will feel VERY familiar but I think it's funny anyway.Published 3 months ago by William A. Yohman
If you've never watched British comedy, this might be a good one to start with, it's hilarious.Published 4 months ago by Karvin Spurgeon
Probably one of the best movies ever made. Soundtrack is straight from heaven. The premise is great. The one liners are unforgettable. If you like this you'd like Snatch too.Published 4 months ago by Marty
