Blu ray worth the upgrade,
This review is from: The Untouchables [Blu-ray] (2007) (Special Collector's Edition) (Blu-ray)
I was really impressed with the blu ray transfer of this movie. Sometimes with older movies you have to do a side by side comparison to realize the improvement, but for The Untouchables it was clear to me right away that it was an upgrade. The movie looks so good that it's easy to forget that it is 23 years old. This movie was also shot in a way where the blu ray treatment really helps e.g. a lot of closeups of faces and a nice use of color (I compared the scene outside the hotel when the bellboy picks the papers off the red carpet and was pretty amazed at how much "redder" the red was on blu ray).
The sound seemed like it was improved, but I am not enough of a sound expert to know for sure. There are also some extras on here, but I don't know if it's anything that's groundbreaking.
