I was so disappointed with this product. The quality of the video is so poor. I could not get passed the first scene without it getting stuck and starting over in the same place. Over and Over. I took it back to get another one from the store b/c the one that was shipped to me had scratches from inside the case where plastic pieces were broken up all over the place. Thinking that I might get a better copy directly from the store, I took the damaged one back, only to my chagrin. This video had the same stuck and stop issues as the one that I ordered online. What a waste of money! Maybe it's not Wal-Mart's fault for the poor quality of the video but I don't want anyone else wasting good money on the product. I love Wal-Mart and I will remain loyal but this one incident really chapped my hide.

Good movie shows what the slaves went through. Video quality was good but the sound track was off on a lot of the scenes it was like watching an old japanese movie that was poorly dubbed the lips were moving and no talking then the lips stopped and you heard the words and the sound was poor during this.
