I went to blu-ray.com and checked there. They compared this disk to the English version and also rated the video of this version with 3 stars, compared to 4.8 stars for the British version. Seems like a no-brainer to get the British version. Especially the colors seem to be so much more natural and popping in the other version.
Very good movie btw.

Both the British and American Blu-rays stem from the same underlying video transfer, which has some artificial sharpening baked in. The British copy adds DNR to soften the edge halos, but that also reduces detail. The Twilight Time copy lays off the DNR, which is why the edge ringing is more obvious.

No comment on the contradictory star ratings given by another site.

The 4.8 has to be an average rating from the users and not the official review from the site. Like HDD, the other site uses either a full or half star when rating.
