Default Who has "The Island" HD-DVD import from the UK?

Hey, I was just wondering who had The Island imported from the UK and what are their impressions - how is the PQ/AQ/Features, etc

I haven't heard a lot about this title except that it was released in Spain, France, and the UK - Is there any difference or are all of them the same?

Any info would be cool (Amazon UK doesn't give out much)

I really want to get this movie in HighDef and I just want to know is it worth it to import or should i just wait for it to be released here? Thanks!

I have them (UK version). The PQ/AQ is great. I haven't checked out the special features yet, but if I remember correctly the sDVD didn't have very many. I really like this movie even though most view it as Bay's worst.

In my opinion PQ/AQ are very good, at least 4/5 on both....my impressions on a 42" plasma anyhow..

Im deciding what to do as well..... but Im gonna wait for now. $40-ish is just too much for the title. The SD version looks and sounds very good so there isnt a big rush for me. Its a good flick, just not one I feel the need to replace right away....

My 2 cents....

Picture quality is superb. Audio is weak. 640kbps just doesn't cut it on a title like this.

I have and absol. love the Pianist, the PQ is amazing and does the film wonders, as it really is one of the best movies ever made.

I have the Swedish version, which apart from the cover (house in a regular "thin" Elite case, and some swedish text on the backcover overvview) is identical. PQ was good, but I found it a little oversaturated. I don't know how the movie looked in theaters, so this may as it's supposed to be. AQ was also great. Not magnificent, but really good for a regular DD track.
