Movie Reviews

A poor rendering of the original movie
Ken Friedman | Cupertino, CA USA | 01/14/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I rented this DVD and found the production to be choppy, have blurry video and sub-text, and missing any openings and closing of the film. The overall quality is quite poor such that it is worse than the VHS version I recorded for myself several years ago. I expected a superior quality recording but only got an extremely amateurish attempt not up to the expected quality I have seen in other DVD releases of older films. I had intended to buy a copy of this DVD but will not now. How unfortunate!!"

"How do you rate something this bad! Not the movie itself, but this sorry excuse for a DVD. I thought I was getting an official MGM release, but instead I got a very cheap poor quality transfer. Just wait to see this movie on Turner Classic Movies, or wait until MGM decides to release the movie themselves, which I hope is real soon."
MGM - Take note

"I am very glad that I read the reviews for this DVD.
Fortunately it gave me time to cancel my order for this item.So thanks to Amazon for providing this feature.
But I must agree with everything that the reviewers have said.WHAT A WASTE !
This was a really excellent film which would warrant at the very least a 4 star rating - but any film should be transferred to DVD in it's original screen ratio - as any true film enthusiast would agree - and in addition the copy needs to be taken from the very best source material available,and "cleaned up" where necessary.
Extra features in the case of this film could include some original footage of the Peenemunde Rocket Sites and in addition perhaps a documentary about the testing of them.
The company who produced this copy however,should really not be in the DVD business. As another reviewer has said, they are obviously just out to make a fast buck with a total disregard for picture quality or anything else. I feel sorry for the people who have,in effect,been "ripped off" by this company.
The film was shown here on Turner Classic Movies some months back in wide screen and top picture quality,but I still really want to get a copy of this film on DVD,so I can only hope,like the other reviewers,that a more reputable and more professional company (MGM perhaps) will eventually produce it on DVD and do the film justice.
So MGM take note - it would appear that you have a ready market out there.

"What a waste!

I've loved this movie since first seeing it in the theater back in the 60's.

I own the Laser Disc, which MGM did a fairly good job with.
But this DVD is a joke. It's grainy, fuzzy and the beginning credits are cut out! It's also in full screen -- why --considering the original film was made in 70mm.

The audio is also another disappointment. The Laser Disc has surround sound, yet this muddy transfer to DVD is only 2.0.

I'm hanging on to my Laser Disc until Trinity Entertainment comes to its senses and re-releases this movie in better condition.
