Raging Bull is widely renowned as one of Martin Scorsese's greatest films, and is an absolute classic piece of cinema in every sense, but does this landmark film have an equally as fantastic Blu-Ray release? Let's see.
First of all, the slip cover that is included is wonderful. Mine came a little dirty, but nothing a little wiping off couldn't fix. One thing I'm especially happy about is that it doesn't have that annoying blue banner at the top that is usually on most blu-rays. It's a straight full art cover and it looks magnificent. Once you take off that cover, you're treated to a standard Blu-ray box molded in red, and features the same artwork and information the slip cover had. All standard stuff, but opening up the box reveals numerous still frames of behind the scenes work with Scorsese and De Niro, and even a few scenes from the movie itself that are all about the size of a postcard. It's small touches like that that really make that 15 dollar price tag seem like a steal, even more so when seeing how most new blu rays that come out are around 18-20 dollars and have even less than that.
All in all, this is probably the best version of Raging Bull you can get right now. It functions as not only giving you the Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy, but it also works just as well as a display piece and a collector's item. if you're a fan of this movie or Scorsese in general, it's a crime not to buy it.
