Movie Reviews

K. Seamon | Armadale, Victoria Australia | 03/12/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I was so glad to find this on DVD that I failed to read the customer reviews before I bought it. Big mistake. Many of the finer scenes that I remember from the mini-series are missing. The quality of the DVD is excellent, and the sound is good, but about HALF THE FILM IS MISSING!! Tommy Lee Jones was outstanding in the lead role, but it's hard to tell from this mess. What an awful shame to cripple the film this way, just to fit it on a single DVD. Have they never heard of double-sided DVDs? Hopefully, with the interest generate by Scorcese's new movie, someone will do a proper release of this very interesting telling of the Hughes story."
A major disappointment from original release on T.V.

"TNT showed this a few years back and I recorded it to VHS without the commercials and I find myself watching that fuzzy old self-recorded VHS more than this DVD! They added a couple of meaningless scenes and removed many major and important ones. Watching this DVD after seeing the TV version (same applies to the VHS version) makes me feel sick! Wait till it comes around on TV and skip this one folks."

"I bought this version and was ripped off. Out of the 215-minute movie, they deleted 40% of it. Critical parts of the story are missing. They did not sell the movie as an abridged version.

In addition, the sound is so bad that it's very annoying to watch it. The sound has a great deal of phase shifting. If the original is in this shape, it needs to be restored before selling anymore copies."
