Great old film but... - The Runaway Bus review by TH

Spoiler Alert

It would have been very enjoyable had the technical quality not been so so bad. To release a great old film for it's time then insult all who worked on it with this: out of focus, green fringing on the left of frame, dirt in the gate on right, possibly from 16mm copy. Oh dear such a shame. Glad I did not buy it and only rented!!!

Rating the film 3 stars. Quality NO STARS

For quality of images NO STARS! A jolly good story but... - The Runaway Bus review by MB

A jolly good story, but let down badly by the extremely poor quality of the imaging. It reminded me of a bad ‘rip-off’ DVD, copied from, well goodness knows where those people find these old films.

I enjoyed the plot and all the actors played their parts very well. I watched this film on my Apple 13 inch laptop computer and on this size screen, the image was barely passable. There is no was on earth that this could be viewed happily on any sized screen larger than this. Very saddening.
