Kinda hard to tell.

Good signs:
Region 1: US, CA

it's not region 0. and it's preowned which is a decent sign that it may be legit. No insert though, but atleast it doesn't have asian writting on the front.

I'm going to go with the Legit call on this one. Though I may be wrong. any second thoughts?

hard to tell, but given the funny listing (is this title anamorphic?) and the crappy pictures, I wouldn't take the chance.


If it was real, he'd know it and go through the extra trouble to ensure the buyer of it's authenticity.

its a boot I think.

from all the pictures I've seen of The Killer: Criterion, I dont remember the disc art looking like that.

from some other auction on ebay:

That's a bootleg. First of all, there's no insert. Second of all, The Killer CC is region 0 (IIRC). Third, the cover art isn't coloured, like the picture posted. Fourth of all, 25 bucks?

I got shafted once buying a bootleg, so the next time I made sure I had a good copy.

pat - i had chalked up the low price to fact that it's so early in the auction.

I'm new to the ebay thingie

Price isn't always a factor. I've seen a lot of high priced items start off at a buck but end at 100+

OT, but yet another reason why I don't get the fascination of Criterion titles when a good lot of them aren't anamorphic transfers. I mean, what's up wit dat?

It's a bootleg... either that or this guy is sitting on a few of 'em. He previously sold at least one before:

It's a bootleg. I paid $9.99 for one exactly like that in Canada. The disk has all the same things as the real version but this copy is definitely a bootleg.
