The 5.1 is a remix while the 2.0 is the original.

Those of you own this release can please tell me if you guys agree with the official review here? Is it a bad tranfer or its average?

Compared to the previous releases, the new transfer is a huge improvement with terrific detail and a filmic look that was missing in all previous releases.

That said, there are issues raised about the color grading, and it is the primary bugbear of the site review. The transfer is supposed to have been supervised by one of the cinematographers of the film, but there is the possibility (some would say certainty) of last-stage yellow-leaning changes made to the final master by the restoration studio.

But you needn't take anyone's word for it. You can see screenshot comparisons of the current remaster with all previous releases:

It looked perfectly good to me, but I haven't seen any previous releases.
I really enjoyed Kurosawa's earlier films, but this one and Kagemusha not so much. They seem like old man film's to me with a strong nihilistic tendencies.

I would not call them nihilistic, although they do have tragic conclusions. I think they are very anti-war and critical of militaristic and regimented society, and of the avarice of conquest. The anger contained in them certainly belie the 'old man' aspect. I would call something like Rhapsody in August an old man's film.

Thank you for the info. I also read something similar regarding Wong Kar Wai's "In the mood for love" that transfer was supervised by Wong Kar Wai himself but the restoration studio added the teal look to final release.

I haven't seen "Ran" not on blu ray and not in any medium so I guess I ll go ahead and buy it since I don't think they will do a remaster again.
