Is it me or did the ending for Cross of Iron just ruin all the build up leading up to it? The whole movie was great but then the ending was...bleh.
little ot eh ?
now i look like an idiot ,thanks who ever moved it :(
The ending wasn't bad per se, just really abrupt. Also, James Mason seemed too old for his part, and James Coburn's character, Steiner, was portrayed more like a tough American Sergeant, always shouting "god dammit" after every other word. Overall though, it was a solid movie. I just wish I had a better copy, since the region 1 DVD version, which I have, looks to have been recorded from a TV screen using a camcorder, with terrible sound to match. Not to mention that it's in full-screen format. :(
The Code-1-Version is also bad since it´s heavily cut. Even the german version by Kinowelt which has pretty good quality is cut. The only full uncut versions avaiable are the french from Canal+Video and the british by Studio Canal, at least the british with an excellent quality, as i haven´t had a look at that french disc yet. All other international versions are cut and therefore useless... Hope I could help you guys along...
okay whast the diffrence in the diffrent versions :-S ? (i have it on a Swedish DVD and its excelent quality and sound)
Regions Explained DVDs from different regions, in addition to being dubbed and subtitled accordingly, usually vary in terms of quality, screen format, and extras. Most of the foreign movies sold in the United States (region 1), or at least the ones I've purchased, are of abysmal quality. Come and See (Idi i smotri), Stalingrad, The Winter War (Talvisota), Ambush (Rukajärven tie) --all have atrocious picture and sound. I guess they aren't concerned too much about us in the States, since not a lot of people here are into foreign movies, let alone foreign WWII movies. At least that's my take on it.
no i mean more he talked about Cut and Uncut version whats the big diffrence in those ?? like any extra sences ?
Well, usually uncut means that they've included scenes that were cut from earlier releases. ;)
yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa but DOES IT HAVE ANY COOL SCENES ?/DOES IT END DIFFRENT ?
