    Mine just arrived today from Buy.com. I've only skipped through it a little bit. From what I've seen the transfer looks great, but maybe a tad lacking in the fine detail department. Close-ups are very impressive but distant detail in landscapes, etc. could be better. Again, just an initial impression.

    On some of the desert scenes, Id agree - but other than that this looked really fantastic to me. Wait until you guys see how the experiment FX pop off the screen.

    Video: 5/5
    Audio: 4.5/5


    Not the greatest flick but I was already thinking of getting this because I figured it'd be a nice show off disc. Looks to be the case.

    John,

    It is the case. For my money, it's easily a reference disc, maybe the best on either format. And I'm so happy because I love this film, despite the crap it gets thrown its way.

    Stellar transfer.

    More from Highdefdigest....


    Looks like Mr. Bracke was very, very impressed. [​IMG]

    I've never seen this film. Looks like at least a rental of the HD-DVD is in order. [​IMG]

    You know it's a great transfer when the reviewer starts dropping F-bombs.

    I'm going to watch this disc tomorrow morning and will report back if I agree with Peter on it's presentation.

    I didn't have the previous release, but I ordered this one. Not arrived yet, but I'm now glad I did.
    HD is getting better and better....

    Waiting for your opinion, Robert!

    Even without an advanced audio codec like Dolby TrueHD, this is a reference disc. If you want to show off for others to see what HD DVD looks like then show them this disc. Lee is such a visual director that he gives you ample opportunity to display the benefits of a HD presentation.

    Watched this tonight. I'm somewhat surprised no one has mentioned the occasional dirt specks. Not a big deal, but for such a glowing review from High Def Digest I was expecting a clean picture.

    Never noticed them which is probably a good thing that it never bother my enjoyment of this disc.

    Same here. Outstanding PQ and SQ on this one and one of my favorite comic book movies.
