Ratings (1-10): video: 2 / audio: 3 / additional content: 4 / overall: 3.

This edition has been mastered from a very-good 16mm reduction print that is a little flat in its greyscale range. There are shots in the video transfer that are low-resolution and have unmistakeable visible pixelation of the picture details, which is very distracting on large HD monitors. Action scenes are so pixelated that it is difficult to distinguish image details. This disc is best watched on a computer monitor instead, if at all.

The film is accompanied by a cobbled-together music score of preexisting orchestral recordings of marginal logical sense.
