    I saw this on DISH this week and it reminded me of how much I enjoyed this film.

    Anyone know if this will see the light of day??

    I have this on VHS tape. A nice OAR DVD would be wonderful. I really enjoyed Caine's performance in this film. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It looks like the DVD Gods are smiling on me. [​IMG] [​IMG] This film is available in a Region 2 DVD that is anamorphic & has extras!

    I just finished watching this DVD. The transfer is really very nice. I didn't notice any problems. Pretty decent 2.0 sound. It also had a 30 minute featurette with multiple short interviews with the film's principal players on both sides of the camera. I can now trash my old P&S VHS tape. Heartily recommended for Michael Caine fans & Pierce Brosnan fans.

    This film & its premise about sneaking a small Atomic Bomb into a country predates Tom Clancy's "The Sum of All Fears" on film by 15 years. The frightening thing is that this could happen.

    I have The Fourth Protocol on a p&s Laserdisc. I am holding on to it until the (Region 1) DVD comes out. It's a favorite movie of mine.

    This film & its premise about sneaking a small Atomic Bomb into a country...The frightening thing is that this could happen.

    Yeah, Americans taking one into Iraq [​IMG] I think it's far more likely that people would fly planes into buildings. Much easier.

    I have that UK DVD and it's very nice.

    Wow this thing came back from the dead!

    Now you guys got me wanting to go home and watch my shi**y VHS copy of it.

    It sure would be nice to see a Region 1 DVD of this. Hell I would even take a bare bones edition of it.

    Well, start asking Warner Bros. They own it in America.

    Looks like I'll have to make a DVD-R of the HDNet broadcast.

    Political remarks such as the ones in post #9 are verboten here. Any further such remarks get the thread closed.

    Surely post #4 "This film & its premise about sneaking a small Atomic Bomb into a country...The frightening thing is that this could happen." is political?

    It's a nonsense that that could happen and I replied in humour.

    Another recommended DVD in the same Atomic Bomb vein as "The Fourth Protocol" & "The Sum of All Fears" is "The Peacemaker" with George Clooney. "The Peacemaker" has really nice action scenes & a lot of tension asthe man with the Bomb is stalked through the east side of NYC with the Bomb ticking away toward 00:00.
