Glad to read the positive review. I pre-ordered this at announcement, but I was still holding onto the old DVD just in case. Now I can put it with the large lot of DVD's I'm about to donate to charity. I'm looking forward to it!

We just watched this disk and discovered that there occurred production errors beginning in the 6th chapter and continued through out chapter 7. There were freeze-frames, jerky cuts and loss of dialogue. As the dis was new and never been played, we were disappointed and gave up after having cleaned the disc and checked the blu-ray player of dust and alignment. The film deserves better treatment but I will not attempt to return it for exchange, as I feel quite certain that the difficulties will remain.
I cannot in good conscience donate it to the library or to charity.

That sounds like a replication error affecting a single unit, not a fault in the entire production run. You got a defective copy. You should absolutely return it in exchange for a new one.

Yes, I didn't have those errors. Send it back for a replacement! It's a beautiful transfer.

You simply have defective disc. Contact the retailer for replacement.

Why do you feel it's not just your disc when several others here and on Bluray.com aren't having the same problem?
Just ran my US Arrow copy through without a glitch -- ended up watching most of the movie too
