Your Opinions and Comments
Paul Newman is the wairy architect who wants to call the party off. William Holden is the ignorant boss who keeps the party going. Steve Mcqueen is the brave and bold fire chief who comes to the rescue.
The movie is very long but very thrilling and it succeeds as a great disaster movie. The acting is very good. Although the film itself looks very dated.
The picture and sound are reasonably good. The film is quite old and whilst it is mainly clean and adequately sharp, very little attempt has been made to bring back the vibrancy of the picture which is a little dull looking. Sound likewise isnt as clear and crisp as it should be.
Extrawise there is only a trailer that is decently remastered. Disapointing really as this is one of the greatest disaster movies ever.
