Worse than bad
7 June 2010 | by armittjSee all my reviews

I just could not watch more than first 20 minutes or so. The colours are so oversaturated they make your eyes bleed. The sound as if it is coming from a tin can. This is probably one of the worst film transfers to DVD I have ever seen. Even the opening titles are tilted and misaligned. Its a shame because I like this kind of Sunday afternoon matinée film but it must be watchable and have reasonable sound quality. Richard Green of the very old series of Robin Hood is the star of this technical debaccle and doubt if he would have wished to have been associated with this. I certainly could not recommend this DVD to anyone - the thing is painful to watch and listen to.
