Agreed! So good. And so rare to find folks who know/care about this. I’m going to try reaching out to some film archive folks…

If you have any luck, please let me know. I’ve been seeking this cut for years. My VHS copy bit the dust a long time ago and I’m just not a fan of the extended version with the Serra soundtrack. I guess that’s because my entire experience had always been with the US release.
I just sat and listened to the Conti theme half a dozen times in a row. To me, it’s pure magic with that black and white opening sequence. It just conveys a completely different vibe. The only place I could find it was YouTube…supposedly the full Conti soundtrack is available at mp3mixx.com for $3.30, but you have to use a credit card and the minimum buy is $30. The site isn’t well reviewed in terms of web safety, which is unfortunate. Blows my mind that the soundtrack was never released on CD. 😦

Hi! I know this topic hasn’t been visited for several years, but wondering if anybody was able to successfully get ahold of or put together an HD version of the US cut of The Big Blue (with Bill Conti soundtrack)?

I see a lot of back and forth between some of the users here with talk of places to grab some compiled file, but not sure if those avenues still exist?

I’ve been looking for this movie in this form for many years!

Thanks so much!

Any chance this thread is still going? I saw the US theatrical release (multiple times) in the theater and would pay good money to get an HD version of this cut with the haunting Bill Conti soundtrack.
