Default 'AC/DC: Let There Be Rock' (Limited Collector's Edition) - HIgh-Def Digest Review

Our review of 'AC/DC: Let There Be Rock' (Limited Collector's Edition) has just been posted. Steven Cohen says this shows the band just as they teetered on the brink of superstardom. Sounds like a great show. This Blu-ray features troubled video but exceptional audio. Extras are extensive and should please fans. This is recommended.

This is a great set and the tin box is about the same size as the old SD Anchor Bay tins, but with a much bigger and sturdier metal box covering. It's an impressive piece. For the OCD crowd, it does take more than the usual space, because it's oversized. That's if you wanted to put the box on display. If not, the film itself comes in a standard blu-ray case.

Default LET THERE BE ROCK Looks Fantastic

I have to disagree with the "official" review of this classic 1980 French film documenting AC/DC's Paris concert, one of the last with Bon Scott. Until now, the only way to see this movie was on VHS, if you were lucky enough to have a copy. The upgrade to blu-ray is stellar. So good, in fact, that you can use the "zoom" feature on your widescreen tv to give the movie its 1.85:1 aspect ratio (filling all of your screen) without any significant loss of picture quality. When viewing this movie "zoomed in" to 1.85, it actually looks to be framed correctly, as it was seen in cinemas during its "late night" theater run in the early 1980's.

Detail, clarity, sharpness, and overall brilliance are much improved over any previously available versions of LET THERE BE ROCK. Perhaps these things vary depending upon your blu-ray player and hi-def monitor. In my modest "home theater", I was very impressed with the picture quality.

For many of us, this is one of the classic concert films we have been waiting for, and it is most pleasing they finally got around to releasing it on blu-ray. Still waiting for McCartney's Rockshow, Pink Floyd's Pompeii concert, The Beatles Let it Be, YesSongs, and a few others, but LET THERE BE ROCK is certainly a giant step in the right direction toward bringing all the best titles to blu-ray disc.
