    Awww, they didn't mention how the new 5.1 soundtrack hold up against the older 5.0 track. I own the original, and while the five main channels sound very good and agressive, I always felt that the lack of an LFE channel hurt the movie. Sure, there was bass, but it never tickled my posterior like it should have. This is especially dissapointing during the cargo plane explosion. That boom should have given me the runs [​IMG] . The guys that mixed this movie did the soundtrack for U-571, so I know they've got a bass fetish lurking somewhere.

    I'll be first in line on July 30th to pick this title up. Just dumped my old version a couple of weeks ago.

    Personally, I see nothing wrong with the cover. The cover for the Video and original DVD was pretty dull.

    hey, i was considering importing the region 1 and paying almost double for it over buying the region 4 version the other day, simply because the r4 one looks worse! And you get those cool Five Star Collection cases too...

    I have to agree with the review, the commentaries are absolutely fantastic, the funniest I have ever heard!

    I had the previous R4 release, and yes, the bass is MUCH better! I think the picture is also slightly improved (the previous release was 16x9 unlike R1)
