Be aware, the criterion version is NOT anamorphic. It's also the director's cut of the movie with a few minutes of footage inserted back in.

The UK R2 release is basically an anamorphic version the Criterion release. I think there are a couple of minor suppliments missing, but it's still the best version.

The price is because it is not available anymore!

So this is a rare dvd for fans to get their hands on.

Yes, there is English subtitles on the film. One booklet. Lots of special features on the second disc.
I happen to have a copy. I bought it second hand! Lucky me!

Shame there is no DTS! The Rock Criterion has DTS!

No, this is not out-of-print and is still available from most retailers with an average price of around $30.99. Try Amazon, DVDPlanet, or Criterion's own site for links to merchants selling it to find the best price.

I'd bet money that Buena Vista (Disney) will revisit this one soon. They have been re-releasing a number of their non-anamorphic titles over the last year or so. If you are considering a purchase, I'd wait.

If I recall, The Rock was the first criterion disc that offered anamorphic enhancement and DTS.

I have that one too. It's so much better then the barebones disney release.

Unless you live in Canada. If I recall (and this was a few years ago) criterion editions that go for $30 us are like $89 here. Don't ask me why. I remember being shocked after I bought The Rock online for about $30, only to find it in a Futureshop for $89 - plus 15% tax ontop of that. Confused

Seriously people, if you get the Criterion version you're paying for the name. The UK SE is pretty much identical and it's anamorphic...

As I said, the UK R2 is the best option.
