(aka "Shinkansen daibakuha" or "The Bullet Train")

 

directed by Junya Sato
Japan 1975

 

A group of terrorists announce, that they have placed a speed-triggered bomb onboard a bullet train, which will explode if the train drops below a certain speed. Sonny Chiba has to save the day in a nail biting thriller, which not only predates "Speed" by over twenty years, but also is superior.

Comments Based on a new digital master from the original 35mm print, this is the first DVD release of the original 152 minute version. Colors are the original Japanese green-ish scheme and AR is almost its original 2.35:1 ToeiScope.

There is no PAL Speed-Up, but surprisingly no either ghosting or combing issues. The only points of critic is that the image is a bit soft and that colors blend a little. Compression artifacts are at a minimum. Overall a great transfer.

Part of the 3-disc "Sonny Chiba Collection Vol. 2", along with "G.I. Samurai" and "Golgo 13".
