Default Rambo: First Blood Australian release?

Has anybody purchased the Rambo First Blood or any other HDDVD in the trilogy series from Australia? If so were there any audio or video problems with these Studio Canal releases? Thank you everyone...nvc1019

Yes, all the Rambo releases have audio pitch issue. They are also barebones with absolutely no extra's.

Stay far away.

I wouldn't go that far.

If you don't have a Blu-Ray player, the Australian imports aren't a bad choice at all. The only time the audio pitch issue really bothered me was during really high pitch noises like the cop sirens and even than, it only felt like something was off.

It's YMMV

Yeah, I have First Blood 2 Aussie release (through Xploited) and I'm happy with it; I think it's better than the First Blood 1 I have on Blu-ray, especially PQ wise.

I have parts 2 and 3 from Australia, I don't really notice the pitch problem on them. I was only bothered by the pitch problem with Basic Instinct. If the price is good, I think they are just fine.

Is Rambo 3 any good as a movie, it's been ages since I saw it - that's the one set in Afghanistan, isn't it?

I guess it's not that high quality in terms of artistic merit but I feel nostalgic when watching this kind of stuff now and I can definitely enjoy it as a "quilty pleasure" kind of thing.
