However if you don't have a multi-region player, you will certainly not be disappointed with this package. Thank you, Mr Kurosawa :)
After browse viewed the 4 blu ray discs, I was disappointed that the films were not remastered like the Criterion Collection issues.
The films nevertheless retained the quality of the films when they were first presented in the theatres when they were released.
A valuable blu ray package for Kurosawa's samurai film lovers.
5 stars for the films. 3 stars for the film quality.
Anyway, I ordered this, rec'd it earlier than expected , which was great
