Alan Shapiro's 1996 reworking of Flipper arrives on DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while Spanish and French soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, but this disc does offer solid sound and picture quality.
I used to watch flipper all the time growing up
yes i'm that old...so when i saw this version on blu-ray
i gad to get it.
i think it's a very good blu-ray transfer.
i think paul hogan and johnathan banks were great
in their respective roles.
all the animal actors were also great.
i do have two gripes with this film though.
1. elijah woods acting seemed only believable some of the time
at other times he seemed to just be phoning it in not enough emotion in scenes that called for it and too much in others
and their was no real back story for this carector
this self centered kid arrive to stay with his uncle
and for the most part this attitude does change that much.
2. there are no special features !
they could have done alot of dolphin stuff
instead they gave us nothing!
