Summary: No way is the transfer on this film anywhere near as good as the Dark Knight. It is obvious that the film has simply been transfered to Blu Ray without any touching up or remaster job being done. That said it is still a good transfer and very crisp and clear for an older film but their is some noticeable grain at times. Sound is dolby true hd which sounds great on a good set up.

The biggest selling point for me with this film is that not only does it contain all the bonus features from the 2 disc dvd edition it also contains the Tim Burton commentary track. many of you may remember that this was missing from the 2 disc dvd. The reason for this was that at the last minute the BBFC decided to cut one scene from the film where catwoman puts some areosol cans in the microwave in the department store and this blows up. Apparantly the BBFC thought this might be copied by impressionable kids, Doh!! by taking out this scene it also meant the commentary had to be taken out although the dvd box still stated it was on the disc.

This version of the film is fully uncut and does include the described catwoman scene and the commentary so get this quick in case the BBFC realise this and cut future releases.
