ReviewBased on Ira Levin's best selling sci/fi-horror-thriller "The Boys From Brazil" deals with the plot to clone Adolph Hitler. This film is a campy thrill ride with two of the greatest actors of all time hamming it up to beat the band.
The DiscGood campy movie. Great picture. Fair sound. No extras to speak of. Nice vanilla DVD price!
Nice picture. No artifacts, pixilation or film scratches present. Good delineation of colors. Great flesh tones.
The mono sound isn't really that bad. There is no loss of dialogue. The only thing missing is the stereo effect. This isn't a sound effects intensive film. There is a great score by Jerry Goldsmith which would have sounded better in stereo.
Nice design. Excellent use of images and rousing Jerry Goldsmith score. Easy to navigate.
Vanilla extras are good. Just not enough of them. There are trailers, production notes and the bios. The price reflects the lack of extras.
One of my favorite films. Worth the price of admission.
