Raging Bull 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review

Synopsis: Robert De Niro teams with director Martin Scorsese in this "extraordinarily compelling" (Leonard Maltin) film that introduced unflinching realism to stunned audiences in 1980. An "exceedingly violentas well as poetic" fight picture that maps "the landscape of the soul" (The New York Times),Raging Bull garnered eight Oscar® nominations* and won two, including Best Actor for De Niro. De Niro gives the performance of his career as Jake La Motta, a boxer whose psychological and sexual complexities erupt into violence both in and out of the ring. Joe Pesci and Cathy Moriarty are unforgettable as the brother who falls prey to Jake's mounting paranoia and jealousy, and the fifteen-year-old girl who becomes his most prized trophy. A "brilliantly photographed film of extraordinary power and rare distinction" (The Wall Street Journal), Raging Bullis filmmaking at its riveting best.

Review: Raging Bull is Martin Scorsese's academy award winning epic about a boxer, played by DeNiro.  This film was one of the finest examples of filmmaking that came from the 1980s.  This is one of the movies that helped to establish DeNiro as not only a bad ass, but as an amazing character actor.

The blu-ray release of this film also comes with a DVD.  The blu-ray transfer looks wonderful, especially during the legendary fight scenes of the film.  The sound is excellent.  This one was transfered well.

Raging Bull is one of those movies that you can buy again and again without the slightest bit of buyer's remorse.
