I like what Universal has done with this blu-ray.


Quickie Review:
the movie looks great.
The game portions were shot very well and looked like real football.

There is no U-control feature, all the special features are right in the menu
to access whatever you want to see.

there is a 13 minute doc interviews of Jim Brown and some of Davis' familiy members and Art Modell.


Terrific movie that i was thrilled to see because I had no idea of this part
of history of sports or American history.
So great job Universal, please continue to keep U-control off these discs.


In case a mod strolls in could you fix my error in the title and put a capital D on Davis.

From what I can tell, it seems that the box office take determines whether the subsequent blu-ray gets U-Control treatment or not. The Express didn't make a whole lot; in fact it was a bomb (under $10m gross). Universal probably didn't want to put too much effort into the Blu-ray release since they probably don't expect much in the way of sales.
