I don't want to start up that age old steelbook debate about having the title on the front versus clear artwork as I can see both sides of the argument.

Personally, I prefer having a title, and emboss the sh*t out of it I say. Heck even debossing is great. Ok I admit, sometimes a flat title can look rather dull.

The other side prefer no title, just the artwork in all its glory. I understand that, it's a valid point. I'm not going to argue with you as it's all down to preference.

However, this steelbook has no title but still has text on the front.

Smart move there Universal, really smart. You've somehow managed to find a way to please no-one.

Great movie, underrated.
The front is pretty bad.Look like Denzel is the cop chasing Crowe.

the new art doesn't seem a terrible choice but it does however look a bit weird with the names of the protagonists in the place of where a title could have fitted but anyway good news to finally get this great movie in a steelbook in the UK :thumbs:

Arrived today. Basically as expected: flat matte, roughly the same as Casino 4K from earlier in the year. I expect this is how Universal like their steelbooks now.
Anyone remember the days when Universal steels were gorgeous. Even their catalog steels were better than the crap they chuck out these days.

Yep, pretty grim as expected, but glad to have the 4K.
