    I purchased BAT 21 DVD from Circuit City. There were numerous audio dropouts on both sides of the DVD (widescreen & standard). I exchanged it and the exchanged DVD also had the same audio dropouts at exactly the same places. I decided to keep the DVD, but I was wondering if MGM has a recall on what appears to be a poorly master DVD.

    I also didn't experience any audio dropouts on my copy. Can you give any specific places on the DVD where these dropouts occur?

    on amazon i get..... Availability: Release date to be announced:The release date for this video has not been finalized. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives.
    it is not listed at dvdplanet or dvd empire.

    This is the thread I started when I found out this title was coming out on dvd. Since then I found 3-4 copies of it at my local CC.

    I purchased my copy from Deep Discount DVD. They were the cheapest online price I could find. However it did take awhile for them to get any copies in stock.

    I got it, and it has dropouts (not worth exchanging though).

    2.0 sound

    Picture is good.
