    I'd be careful calling every bad mastering/authoring Disc rot. Everyone will pick it up and claim that DVD is going down.

    I ahven't got the disc but I assume it's a pressing error. Doesn't really matter though as you can't play it you have to exchange.
    sorry mate:(

    Finally got my copy yesterday and watched last night. No problems with the sound or picture although the rears seemed louder than normal (actually enjoyed that).

    Mines faulty too. It will not play beyond the trailers and there is a cloudy patch on the playing surface.

    Have you been able to get to the RMA page on the dvdsoon web site ?

    (I've heard a number of Tomb Raider 2 discs are faulty)

    Another dead TR2 from DVDsoon. Has the same cloudy patch.

    Anyone know if the US copies have the same issues?

    I agree, a rather bland and derivative film, with faultless production values.

    After viewing, it's rather difficult to remember specifics. A sort of chinease takeaway of a movie

    mine played fine, but then it came from DVD Pacific.

    As for the film.... I liked it, but then I didn't think it'd be much different from the first. Can't make up my mind if they're trying to turn her into James Bond now or leave her as Indiana Jones.:laugh:
    It's certainly not a "good" film, but its nice to kick back with something completely brainless from time to time and this one fits that bill to a T:zonked:

    I returned my faulty disc to dvdsoon and asked them to check the replacement before sending it.

    The new one arrived today and guess what.........same cloudy patch on the new disc and it will not play like the last one.

    By the time I get one that works the R2 version will be in the bargin bins for £5. This sucks!
