This is a DVD rECOn-structed from a pre-released R5 recording of the 2009 feature film Angels and Demons. As such, the video quality is quite high, comparable to what the DVD will be. The sound quality is good, but only two channel AC3.
The audio is English (two channel AC3) and there are English subtitles hardcoded into the video when languages other than English are spoken ie Italian.
When properly burned to a single layered DVDR, the movie should begin playing immediately. There are chapters mapped every 5 mins.
My comment is that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and was slightly dissappointed at the same time. The download should move swiftly if you use Peerguardian.
There are a few flaws with this release. The hardcoded English subtitles are out of synch a couple of times late in the movie, but overall they are well timed. Also, the audio is slightly out of synch for brief periods throughout the movie. You won't notice unless you are watching lips as people speak.
