A good DVD that deserves more credit!

"This is a good movie that deserves more credit than what it's been receiving. I usually base whether or not I buy a product on the reviews it gets from other buyers. I had put off buying this DVD because some reviewers had bashed it's video and sound quality. I took a chance, bought the movie, and now I'm glad I did. The so-called "poor quality" of this DVD has been terribly over exaggerated. No, I don't believe that it has been "digitally re-mastered" as we're all used to but it is very much a watchable DVD. It's format is widescreen (which is a plus) and the dialog is loud and clear. Some shots appear a little grainy from time to time but it's nothing to get worked up about. I watched the entire movie and not once was I put off by it's video and sound quality. The movie's storyline and action sequences are well above average and Sean Connery's performance is superb in my opinion. I could understand the negative reviews if this DVD had cost more than twenty dollars but for what I paid for it, I just can't see what all the hubbub is about. In any case, this DVD is going to be staying in my collection for a long time to come. It's a keeper!
