The highlight? You have to hand that to the first film, one of the most perfectly complete blockbuster movies of the past few decades. Brilliantly constructed and exceptionally executed, it’s exciting, funny, imaginative and stands up extremely well to repeated viewings.
But then so do the second and third films in the Back To The Future trilogy, too. The second is arguably the most disjointed, but then it has the most narrative work to do. Picking up directly after the first movie, it covers a heck of a lot of ground, and, in spite of one or two problems, it’s nonetheless a compelling movie in its own right. The third, meanwhile, is an underrated delight, that tails the trilogy with exceptional style.
Accompanying the films is a collection of extras that genuinely dig a bit deeper, and most notably include the infamous test footage of Eric Stoltz in the role of Marty McFly, before he was replaced by Michael J Fox five weeks into production.
Crucially, though, the Back To The Future trilogy has never looked better. And bundled with a package of supplements that offer terrific added value, this is a must-buy Blu-ray collection. --Jon Foster
"Doc" Emmett Brown invents the coolest looking time machine ever, a Delorean car with all the extra gubbins stuck on. Marty McFly accidentally gets sent back to 1955 and unwittingly stops his parents from meeting, if he doesn't get them together he'll never be born. In the genius sequel Marty and Doc go into the future to prevent a disaster in Marty's future family. The third and final part of the story finds them in the wild west in 1885, with the time machine out of action they have to find a way to get home and prevent Doc's death.
The Back To The Future movies are possibly the most enjoyable movies ever made, every installment is clever, exciting and hilarious. Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd are a perfect pairing and are on of the best on screen double acts ever.
The DVD has fully restored the movies so they look are sparkley and new and sound fantastic. There are plenty of extras on all 3 discs including a commentary (1 only), a featurette from the set and a documentary looking back with interviews by Michael J Fox, Robert Zemeckis and Robert Wade (writer), some brilliant outtakes and deleted scenes.
The best DVD set around.
