Not widescreen - Hell in the Pacific review by NG

Spoiler Alert
18/10/2013

Hell in the Pacific was made in widescreen: 2.35:1 according to the IMDb. What is available here is a cropped 4:3 version. Since this is such a powerful classic film and a lot of the interaction between the two characters is lost, this is not good. On the US import featured on Amazon the ratio is correct.

The rating is for the film, not the presentation.

Missing something, even for a so-called 'classic' - Hell in the Pacific review by AB

Spoiler Alert

Obviously, never having been in this position, I think that a spark of humanity would exist between 2 trapped people with some sort of common decency like trying to communicate to each other without shouting would be a basis.

Unsatisfactory and poor ending

Pan and scan butchering of widescreen film - Hell in the Pacific review by MR

Spoiler Alert
29/05/2020

After the widescreen 2:35 opening credits end the DVD switches to a pan and scan 4:3 version which means you lose more than 50% of the original picture. I immediately stopped watching and found a version on streaming. Pan and scan really is the worst and I wish Cinema Paradiso would not offer these discs without a clear warning as I would avoid like the plague.
