Conclusion: Evita has finally arrived on Blu-ray, but it is a decidedly mixed bag. The transfer is the best the film has received but is still severely lacking, and the supplements are incomplete, but also better than the DVD. The $26.50 retail price is high for a catalog title. That said, fans will still want to pick it up for its improvements because a superior edition seems highly unlikely now.
Summary: Evita 's stature has grown with the passage of time, and even if you feel (as many fans do) that Alan Parker's 1996 film adaptation doesn't capture the electricity of the stage musical at its best, the movie remains one of the most effective stage-to-screen adaptations of the last thirty years.
