Le Grand Bleu (The Big Blue)

image host The Big Blue is a great work by director Luc Besson and continues the partnership between he and actor Jean Reno. Although the film was originally released in 1988 it is seeing some high def loving this year in two separate versions. In late 2008 Paramount released the Blu-Ray in France using an AVC format and a dual layer disc. In May 2009 Concorde Video released its own version in Germany utilizing a VC-1 transfer.

______________________________________________________
Comparison Review: I can't really pick much apart between these two releases as they seem like accurate representations of Besson's work. Although the German release gives up some of the video bitrate while adding a second audio track, neither film fill up the DL Blu-ray disc. This is peculiar as the film runs nearly 3 hours long (~168 minutes) in its "Version Longue." Whichever version you pick up, the movie comes highly recommended.
