Packaging / Design

This is a rather odd choice in it's simple, yet eye-catching quality. This first pressing comes in your standard keepcase but the paper insert is of a foil-like quality which makes it catch the light in a very unique way.

This design certainly gives it a look of it's own and the style works quite well with the theme of the film, in a sort of dark and retroesque kind of way.


Disc contents / Extras

The main reason to go for this disc or the R3 disc is that both include the original mono track, which sounds so radically different in comparison to the new awful-sound-fx track presented in Dolby 5.1.

I usually don't care for mono tracks and such but in this case I really feel that the 5.1 mix sounds so terrible when it comes to the weapon sounds for one. I mean the new mix has arnold firing something that sounds more like a firecracker than the original bad-ass-shotgun blast that one remembers so clearly from watching the film on TV.

So in conclusion, a good set of discs with a worthy selection of extras and the original mono track intact. But if the mono track is not important to you, you should definetly considder one of the remeastered ultimate editions for the inclusion of the missing featurettes, a new transfer, and a spanking new DTS track.


Sidenotes

This first pressing comes with a holographic cover not found on the latter release. It's just a regular keepcase but the insert has a foil-like feel to it in the way it reflect the light.
