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's been out on BluRay for a while now, so I'm 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.
  • 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 Disappointed that iTunes is selling such a poor quality version in such an outdated format.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.
  • Decent movie ruined by presentation.

    This is a good movie with some nice performances (the prog rock passages in the music score doesn’t really work, but it at least the filmmakers tried something different), but unfortunately the 4:3 pan-and-scan transfer that iTunes has is completely unwatchable in today’s day and age.
  • Fantastic

    This is an amazingly fun movie that I've loved for years. Too bad about the horrible full-screen, pan-and-scan copy. Wish I could return it. I have seen high-quality, letterboxed versions, so I know they exist. I was looking forward to watching it but was severely dissapointed.
  • 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.
  • Terrible print of great movie

    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.
  • 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.
  • please release HD
