Comments

 Without getting overly obsessive with image, this comparison is a wash. No significant difference in either edition. The PAL edition has a few more expected DUB and subtitle options, but as with other MGM's in Europe the English subtitles are only hearing impaired. These DVDs are usually very reasonably priced so I would just nab the one that is most readily available, unless you need those additional subtitles or DUBs.
