Reviews

Welcome to the definitive, Complete Collectors Edition Box Set, which contains the Official Highlights of England's comprehensive 3-1 triumph, with all the action from every Test Match, as well as ‘The Inside Story', a 2 disc documentary examining the drama, intrigue and excitement that surrounded the 2010/11 Ashes series in Australia. This comprehensive documentary will incorporate a wealth of never before seen footage and behind the scenes action, and it will employ all the latest technology that surrounds and characterises modern cricket in order to tell fans and enthusiasts the complete story of the 2010/11 Vodafone Ashes series.

Gloriously and comprehensively, England won the 2010/11 Ashes Series in Australia. It’s been 24 years since England were on top, down under, but it was well worth the wait! It was a campaign cleverly prepared and brilliantly executed by captain Andrew Strauss, coach Andy Flower and their national team of heroes.

With 11 hours of incredible 2010/11 Ashes action from Australia spread over 7 DVDs and including a 16 page booklet, fans will know what it feels like to be in and around the action of one of the greatest Test Series of all time.

In this Ashes series in Australia, cricket became more than just a game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good behind the scenes, highlights not great. 11 Mar 2011
Have split this to 2 stars for the highlights DVD and 4 star for the additional DVDs.

Highlights DVDs are literally that, I was hopeful it may have been like the excellent 2005 & 2009 Ashes DVDs with a build up to the tests and information of goings on between the matches (newspaper back pages etc.). They are just a collection of what is probably Channel Nines daily highlight summary pieced together.

The extras DVDs are a lot better than what I thought they would be, aside from the normal behind the scenes which are always interesting but nothing special there is a excellent documentary on the series with both captains involved in it. Always good with a bit of barmy army in it also

5.0 out of 5 stars more is better 26 Oct 2011
This is a slick well produced production giving us the highlights of a famous cricketing moment plus analysis and interviews, but as with the baseball DVD's why is it not possible to give us the complete match? There are many ex pats around the world who would really appreciate the whole experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Compilation for a Memorable Series! 5 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
A very enjoyable collection of the series and unlike some reviewers I am pleased it has the Australian presenters as it is not very often you hear them having to deal with one of their sports teams on the wrong side of a pasting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Memories of thrashing the old enemy 3 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
Very informative giving detail on the amount of preparation and planning that went into the tour. Set the scene and the environment very well and the hurt from previous tours that motivated England. Overall a very professional product and well worth buying. The Ashes Series 2010/2011 Complete Collection 7DVD Box Set

4.0 out of 5 stars Great cricket series poorly edited product 6 Aug 2011
They really haven't put the most effort into editing this DVD collection. It looks like they just cobbled together the daily highlights. Some of the best wicket taking has oddly chosen replay angles so you can't see the brilliant reverse swing bowling by the Poms. Some terrible audio edits. Rushed interviews. Its almost like the Australian Production team don't want people to buy it !! It's great seeing the Aussies getting smashed in their own back yard but this DVD could of been done much better. Also, its wildly biased towards the Aussies - some crucial events are seen from a very narrow Aussie viewpoint - sad. You realise how much more even handed the English TV coverage is. However, its still worth buying to put on whilst partaking in a few cans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-live the Joy! 25 July 2011
Excellent review of the test series in Australia last winter, the coverage is complete and full, allowing around 1/2 hour per days play, sometimes even longer. All main events are covered and the memories it brings back are purely joyous. The extra DVD's of the behind the scenes and discussion on the games are for the commited fan, but if you love the game you'll enjoy those as well. Never forget such a great series, and watch Cook pile on the runs again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living the Ashes again 16 July 2011
Verified Purchase
If, like me, you only heard this wonderful tour on the radio and want to see some of it on screen, I highly recommend this set. I loved watching these highlights and it brought back all the memories of the excitement and spectacle, the highs (mainly for England) and lows (mainly for Australia). The interviews with both captains were revealing too. Andrew Strauss carried himself with assurance and calm and there was a confidence about him and the rest of the team which came across even after the defeat in the third test. Ricky Ponting belies his fiery on-field temperament in his frank and thoughtful comments about the games and indeed the whole series.

There is a dvd for each test and two extras dvds. Like another reviewer, I felt the extras were not as interesting as they might have been and the piece about the weight of bats was funnier than it was probably meant to be. Still, the coverage of the games is what I wanted and I can't fault that.

This is Australian tv coverage and I did feel that they were generally less impartial than the BBC radio commentators, revelling in each sign of hope that the Australian team would rally. It didn't affect my enjoyment and they were trying, there was respect for the performance of the England team who, let's face it, deserved it. It was also good to hear Richie Benaud again. It doesn't capture the effect on the nation but that's not surprising.

Good value if you want to recapture the spirit of the cricket played over those marvellous weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ashes Glowing 11 July 2011
By Nasher
If you love England cricket and Ashes cricket tops your list then this is definately for you. Although it is Aussie coverage and commentators and pundits, for me its all the more enjoyable an experience for it. Listen as they chirp on about the England team and talk up their own chances, then come to the realisation as the series progresses that they have come up against one of the best all round England teams to leave these shores in many a long year. The highlights are well paced, just about the right length, with good after match interviews of all the key players. The Inside Story is an intersting watch. The second disc has some good behind the scenes footage of the Barmy Army and other topical aspects of the tour that would otherwise go unseen. It won't be to everyones taste but you will enjoy the main feature which should be enough. Good value.
