Comments The sharpest image quality and contrast levels are clearly the Region 1's ... look at the wrinkles on Martin Sheen's forehead (cap n4), there are more details. Region 2's too bright, blacks are burnt (cap n5) ...

DTS tracks are quite good on both version, and extras are the same.

The UK edition has a German track and more subtitles on film and special features (see the menus caps).

The US edition has no French DUB.
