I remember renting the original disc when it first came out and being totally "un-impresed" with it! The picture was so soft, I thought i was looking at VHS! Haven't seen the new version but wondering what's peoples thought are of the new version? I know it's an improvement a/v wise but just how much of an improvement? Please let me know? David

Hey funny you should ask,I just watched it last night!Its a real improvement over the old one picture wise.Nice,sharp,clean presentation.Audio was never a big deal to me for this movie.But what is there in terms of sound is very impressive,rain and gunfire make good use of surround channels,and the lfe pops up when neccesary.Overall definately worth upgradeing if you own the old one.Hope this helps,try rons review,he sums it up pretty well also.

Yeah, the transfer is very clean and clear. It still looks a little bit soft at times, but that may very well be the source material. Overall, you'll be very happy.

If Unforgiven older version = night, then Unforgiven newer version = day. Jon

Yes, the transfer looks quite nice compared to the old one... but there is noticable edge enhancement. You can ignore it as long as you don't stare at scenes that take place against blue skies or have lots of trees... whoops. That's most of the movie! I wish studios would put a piece of tape that reads "NO!" over their edge enhancement buttons. It can really ruin the appearance of a film.
