I must say I was pleasently surprised by this steelbook. The cross on the cover feels a bit weird (a bit too extreme - it just doesn't look like the ones in the movie) but the look of the case is quite nice. The cross is embossed and the silver-area has been given a slightly rusted look which gives it all that extra edge. This is in fact a regular steelbook and NOT a Viva metal case, which would make the embossing a bit more interesting, as this seems to be a pretty unusual feature for (original) steelbooks in general.
As this movie has allready been released in a quite lovely little digipack in Sweden, even featuring a DTS track, my only reason for choosing this edition over the local release was obvious. For there was but one interesting difference...
... The Billy Connolly commentary.
Now, I'm all for comentaries and if they're interesting and passionate I think they can even be the highlight of the extras. However, listening to Connolly felt surprisingly dull to me. I don't know if it was just the general mood I was in or rather the mood Connolly was in but it just didn't do it for me at all.
Apart from this the extras were old news to me, but still a nice bunch for those who havn't had the pleasure. So if you want my advice; A big commentary or Connolly fan should probably considder this cause I might just have been a bit tired or off on that fateful day. But if you value a DTS-track higher I would suggest the Swedish digipack edition as this is just as good looking and well packed with extras as this one is.
This release includes the full uncut version of the film, which is the same cut as most european releases have (not counting the R-Rated UK release from Cinema Club).
