Picture and audio are excellent, I've only watched the first 30 minutes but what I saw was very impressive.

Here's a review (should be the same transfer, right?) ....quote:

"The color tends to vary with the given scene and often defines the outlook. The picture is ultra-sharp and the clarity is crisp, backed by extraordinary depth. Skin tones are natural, sometimes gray to complement the scene. The only thing that holds this one back is the constant sharpness itself, razor sharp and unnatural at times. Overall, the release offers one of the more impressive transfers I’ve seen in 2011."

And the Blu-ray.com review:
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/The-Wa.../17903/#Review

Quote:
"What would an epic, David Lean-like film be without epic, David Lean-like visuals? Granted, The Way Back is no Lawrence of Arabia or Doctor Zhivago, but you'll sense the heat of the former and the utter chill of the later in the film's fantastic 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, which handles the story's varied locales with clarity and mood-establishing color. The gulag scenes are appropriately bleak and cast in deep blues, the forests features rich green foliage, the deserts stretches are glazed by bright, sun-baked neutral tones, and the Himalayas are all crisp white snow and vivid skies. Black levels can seem a bit grayish at times—I suspect this is to preserve shadow detail—but contrast is strong, skin tones are balanced, and the image packs plenty of depth and presence. Shot on 35mm, the film sports a rich layer of natural grain, and there are no traces of excess noise reduction or edge enhancement. The image is more than adequately sharp on its own, revealing fine detail in the period accurate gulag sets, the characters' grimy, mud-splattered clothing, and their crinkled, weather-beaten faces. Simply put, this is a great looking film on Blu-ray, and there are no encode issues or compression problems to distract from the immersive visual experience."

Bonus features listed on the back cover art...seem the same as the DVD specs as listed by sainsbury's.


NATHAN: Alice, please. Your dog, Alice. It and my appetite are mutually exclusive.
ALICE: Well, what's wrong with the dog?
NATHAN: Simple. He's been licking his a**hole for the last three straight hours. I submit to you that there is nothing there worth more than an hour's attention. I should think that whatever he is attempting to dislodge is either gone for good, or there to stay.

The Long Kiss Goodnight

Don't even bother with the DVD if that's what you are considering. The picture quality on the blu is stunning and with a film this well lensed HD is the only way to do it justice.

Question

Can anyone who has this release please confirm if it is actually 127 mins, as stated on the back cover?
The film should be 133 mins long. I suspect they've erroneously put the PAL running time from the back of the normal DVD on the back of the BD too, but would like to be sure before parting with cash for this!

I'd forgotten I'd asked this, but just saw the film is in Amazon's 2 Blu-rays for £10 offer and remembered. Thanks for the clarification, Simon! Ordered!
