The China Syndrome Blu-ray

Posted July 3, 2014 04:23 PM by Webmaster

Image EntertainmentImage Entertainment will release on Blu-ray director James Bridges' The China Syndrome (1979)m starring Jane Fonda, Jack Lemmon, Michael Douglas, James Hampton, Richard Herd, James Karen, and Wilford Brimley. The release will be available for purchase on October 14th.

Synopsis: It started as just another assignment. Reporter Kimberly Wells (Fonda) and cameraman Richard Adams (Douglas) were covering the daily routine at a Los Angeles power plant when the unthinkable occurred – a nuclear accident that could have wiped out Southern California. And Richard caught it all on tape. When their TV station refuses to air the footage, Wells and Adams recruit plant supervisor Jack Godell (Lemmon) to expose the terrifying truth: the facility is a ticking time bomb. But with millions of dollars at stake, company officials cannot let the story break. When the trio attempts to broadcast live from the plant's control room, the utility company does everything in its power to silence Godell permanently, as the world watches. Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Actor and Actress (Jack Lemmon, Best Actor; Jane Fonda, Best Actress–1979).

Special Features:
  • The China Syndrome: A Fusion of Talent (28 Mins)
  • The China Syndrome: Creating a Controversy (30 Mins)

This has been out in Germany for over a year now, through Sony, the original distributor, with average picture and sound quality and the same extras. I expect the same from this release, not a new transfer.
But the film was never a treat to begin with, in terms of visuals, being made in docu-style, which works very well for the film. The great story and great acting (especially Jack Lemmon) makes this a classic, because shortly after the release of the film, something really happened in a nuclear plant, similar to the fictional events. So still a must see for anyone who never has seen this one.

From what I can tell it's been awhile since Image Entertainment has released Sony films.

The only Hanoi Jane movie I actually really like. Looking forward to this. Jack Lemmon was awesome.

I have the German release. Very nice PQ/AQ. Hopefully Image goes a little deeper into their catalog.

It sure sucks the smoking hot Jane Fonda turned to be right and the warmongers wrong. Vietnam is now an official US ally.

I vaguely remember seeing this on HBO way back when, of course when I was nine I knew nothing about what this movie really was, and it probably actually scared me about nuclear energy. I'm tempted to want to get this now, despite knowing what it is, but it might make my head explode. I've been able to put the blinders on enough to enjoy movies before, like Day After Tomorrow, so I might be able to handle this one. So once it gets to $4.99, I'll probably pick it up, grab a roll of duck tape to hold the skull together, and have at it.
But I really would like to see more pre-Hanoi Jane on blu (hubba hubba), and I'll take On Golden Pond too, please, not so much for her presence of course.
