Anthony- I can only speak for the R1 release and in one word would describe the video transfer as excellent! I watch dvds on a 98" screen and it looked very sharp and clear with great colours. Sound was "full" and easy to follow as well. I would give it 5 stars but of course there are no extras included. I have watched many films on dvd and would rank Coogan's as one of the best in video quality - even against more recent films. Hope this helps you!
