I liked this movie - Too bad it's another MPEG2 encode
Shane Bushman | Palm Beach, FL USA | 01/30/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This movie was definitely one to show off the Blu-Ray format, but some corporate genius decided not to pay MS royalties for the use of VC-1, and they went with MPEG2 again on PH. Unless you have the sharpness dialed down on your set, or a 720p display blocking can be seen on this title pretty easily. If you're not sensitive to it then you're lucky. It comes through looking almost like a second layer of grain, but not the very fine grain of good film we're used to. I know some films are intentionally grainy, but rather than error diffusion (like real grain) this movie exhibits patterned grain. It is an artifact of MPEG2 block in motion.
Titles released on Blu-Ray in VC1 encoding have proven how much better they can look. Why won't they maximize the potential of the format already?"
Great movie, but so so video transfer

"This movie is very enjoyable in plot and special effects. But, unfortunately the video transfer was poorly done in Blu-ray. If you already have standard DVD version, save your money."
Dissapointing Blu Ray
K. F. P. Culotta | Apple's Backyard | 01/09/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)
"The two stars are for the Japanese approach into Pearl Harbor and the action torpedo sequence. The rest of the plot is worthless! On the Blu Ray version the images are not what I had expected, there is no DTS Sound, and what happened with all the extra features from the original dvd? Same dissapointing plots as Titanic, and Black Hawk Down. Hope the Patriot doesn't dissapoint me when I go see it in blu ray."
