Say hello to a long overdue Blu-ray. After numerous DVD releases Universal has finally gotten around to releasing Brian De Palma’s classic about a Cuban drug lord (Al Pacino) and his rise and fall in America in HD. While it’s sometimes compared to The Godfather and Goodfellas, it’s more of a raunchy, hypnotic blood-soaked cartoon than anything else. The transfer is as sharp as this film will ever get and the 7.1 DTS-HD MA sound is absolutely insane and will put your system to the test. Universal includes a few in-movie U-Control options — a picture-in-picture commentary of sorts and a humorous f-word tracker — as well as a 3-part documentary and all the legacy special features. It comes packaged in a nifty “Steelbook” case and is a film collector’s necessity, even if you aren’t scheduled to appear on MTV Cribs.
