Description

In medieval times, a youthful pickpocket befriends a strange knight who is on a mysterious quest. This unlikely duo, accompanied by a watchful hawk, are enveloped in a magical adventure. Matthew Broderick ("The Freshman," "Glory"), Academy Award-nominee Michelle Pfeiffer ("Batman Returns," "Dangerous Minds") and Rutger Hauer ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Blade Runner") star in this medieval romantic adventure, nominated for two Academy Awards. Co-starring John Wood ("Sabrina"). Produced and directed by Richard Donner ("Maverick," "Superman"), Siskel & Ebert call this "fabulous... a magically wonderful movie... a real classic!" The Los Angeles Times says it "soars... it's enchanted, enthralling, marvelous; a bold, beautiful vision" and Gene Shalit calls it "amazing... a double popcorn picture that casts a spell, which is why 'Ladyhawke' spells pleasure."

    Ladyhawke is a wonderful movie/story. It has been out on BluRay for a while now, so I am not sure why they have refused to update the version here from the old SD 4:3 release to the widescreen HD version. I would buy it in a second if they did.
  • Thanks for the warning!

    I just want to thank everyone for warning me about the poor quality of this movie.When I say poor quality I mean the sound and the picture the movie itself is terrific I’ve seen it many times I would love to own it but not until they bring the wide screen version and improve the quality of the picture in the sound. iTunes we are waiting!
  • Not even in widescreen. 🤦🏻‍♂️

    Good movie, but they couldn’t even bother to reissue in widescreen format. Disappointed.
  • Terrible quality digital transfer

    I don’t know how Warner Bros. had the nerve to charge $12.99 for this. Not only is it not even in DVD quality, let alone 1080 or 4K, it looks like someone set a video camera in front of a 15” tv and hit record. The aspect ratio of the transfer is a square — there are black bars along the sides not the top and bottom. The audio quality also is really bad. I honestly think they digitized this video from a VHS tape. Save your money, do not buy this version.
  • Terrible Picture!

    Great movie but terrible picture. it's 2019 and this movie is only available in Standard Definition. This is unacceptable and should be updated for HD or 4K.
  • Where is widescreen???

    We're is the widescreen and HD version? I mean the trailer for the movie is widescreen why can’t the movie be widescreen? I like this movie but not in full screen. So I'm not giving a full screen version 5 stars.
  • DON'T BUY: Great movie, unacceptable quality & format

    Love this movie, but this version is terrible. It's not letterbox, but pillarbox - techically 'full screen' if your TV is from 1995 - and the quality isn't even up to SD standards - more a bad copy of a VHS cassette. Disappointed that iTunes is selling such a poor quality version in such an outdated format. Requesting a refund.
  • Fantastic

    Ladyhawke itself is a great movie. This is a ghastly print that looks like it was printed straight from a VHS tape—poor resolution, panned and scanned to the old NTSD 4:3 aspect ratio... just awful.
