From Amazon.co.uk

Now this is just the kind of set that the dedicated Blu-ray collector doesn’t want to be without. The Complete Superman Collection brings to Blu-ray for the first time a definitive collection of the man in the blue tights’ cinematic adventures. We’ve previously had Superman, Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut and Superman Returns on HD disc. But we’ve never had Superman III, the theatrical cut of Superman, Superman IV: The Quest For Peace and the original release of Superman II. All of that has been rectified here.

But there’s far more to the collection than just filling in blanks. For this is an exhaustive set for the Superman fan, with a packed bonus disc going behind the scenes of the story of the cinematic franchise.

The gold here, though, is in seeing such a well-loved cinematic saga given some proper high definition love. Even appreciating that Superman III and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace are few people’s of ideas of classics, even they are given a quality makeover. And having the assorted cuts of the first two films in one place is very welcome indeed.

It’s a fascinating collection of films, that goes through some very pronounced highs and lows. But, with terrific HD upgrade work, The Complete Superman Collection is an essential Blu-ray boxset, warts and all. --Jon Foster

Product Description

For the Superman completist, a bumper collection of all five films in the Superman saga.

Superman: The Movie - Special Edition sees the birth of a legend as we are introduced to the titular superhero and his Kryptonian origins. Also included is the expanded edition, which features an additional eight minutes of screen time.

This is followed by Superman II - Special Edition in which our boy in blue must do battle with three escaped super criminals bent on destroying the earth. Presented here in both its theatrical and director's cut versions, the latter is expanded by an alternate beginning and ending, as well as 15 minutes of restored footage of Marlon Brando as Jor-El.

In the third instalment in the franchise, Superman III - Deluxe Edition, Superman learns of his Achilles heel when he is exposed to kryptonite.

The penultimate Superman IV - The Quest For Peace sees the Man of Steel take on Nuclear Man, culminating in an explosive showdown of epic proportions.

When the Super One returns to Earth in Superman Returns - Special Edition, he discovers that the woman he loves, Lois Lane, has moved on with her life, and must figure out how to protect a world that has learned to survive without him.

By Mr. S. W. Steel VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
***WARNING***
My review of this Blu Ray collection has been duplicated by Amazon so it appears on 2 products.The review I originally posted was for the 8 disc version which has the case with the Superman symbol in the middle with the Fortress of Solitude in the background and uses this product link The Complete Superman Collection [Blu-ray] [1978][Region Free]. This is the edition you want if you want all the extra goodies - because i don't own the other collection I can't tell you what is missing in terms of extras in the 5 disc package though from reading various comments i understand that this package doesn't have the extended cuts of the films and i am guessing more of the extras are missing too!When you think about is a three disc difference in the two packages so i would guess quite a lot is missing from the 5 disc set. Incidentally the 5 disc set has the Superman symbol on a PLAIN BLACK BACKGROUND and it's product link is Superman Complete Collection (5-disc Edition) [Blu-ray] [1978][Region Free].
My personal recommendation is to go for the 8 disc edition as it contains a huge amount of extras as listed in the main review below, and is only slightly more expensive than the 5 disc version. I apologise to anyone who accidentally bought the 5 disc version on the strength of my review - it is purely down to Amazon duplicating the review and not me posting it twice.

***MAKE SURE YOU ORDER THE CORRECT EDITION FOR YOU***

This is an amazing Blu Ray package and one I would recommend to any Superman fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Box Set (Pun intended) 26 Aug 2011
Format:Blu-ray
The superman films have always had significant meaning for me as along with He Man were my staple diet of superhero nutriion as I was growing up.
This box set therefore in my opinion is absolutley fantastic. The only thing I dont understand is why I didnt buy it sooner.

Great quality sound and visuals, only let down by Superman IV(Which I remember seeing at the cinema aged 6). The storyline and the cost cutting production I am sure was an embarrassment for all involved.

Apart from that the extra features and the restoration of the first three films and the inclusion of Superman Returns (which was harshly treated by critics and fans)is great value for money. The box packaging is also great with the only negative being the Spanish script on the discs.

Why buy it?

Christopher Reeve is terrific as Superman/Kent in the first three films and his portrayal has stood the test of time. Superman II in my opinion is the best of all of the films included in this set. It is a fantastic story of romance and good old fashioned good v evil with Reeve adding another dimension to the dilemma of Superman as he becomes mortal.

The Donner cut again is an excellent addition with the extra scenes of Brando a real treat and is really how the original Superman II should have been released back in 1980. It is worth buying this set just for the Donner cut and the featurettes so go on you wont regret it.

The best box set money can buy!

2.0 out of 5 stars This Is Not the complete collection 16 Nov 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Warning!!! This review is for the new re-packaged Superman 5 disc box set... Amazon have not changed the review and are using the same one as the 8 disc set.
This version contains Superman 1,2,3,4 and return, but you do not get The Expanded edition of Superman 1 or the Richard Donner version of Superman 2.. If your happy just getting the standard Theatrical versions of each film then get it, but if you want all the versions of each film then I suggest paying the extra cash, Just seeing the Richard Donner version of Superman 2 makes it worth while paying the extra for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Christopher Reeve is Superman... 16 Sep 2013
Format:Blu-ray
It seems that Superman isn't as popular as he used to be; which is a shame because the first two Superman films ranks among some of the best superhero films ever made.

Superman The Movie introduces Christopher Reeve as the man of steel himself, and in my opinion, no one will be able to top his performance as this character. While the first movie is not my favourite of the series, it is still a great film with great performances all round, particularly from Gene Hackman as the villainous Lex Luther.

Superman II however is definitely my favourite film of the series, with a great story and terrific villains lead by the spectacular Terence Stamp as General Zod. While not a popular opinion, the theatrical version of the film remains my favourite to date even though I liked the inclusion of Marlin Brando in the Richard Donner Cut and some of the silly comedy being removed. The Richard Donner Cut just didn't feel like a complete movie and the decision to have Louis Lane discover Clark Kent's true identity as Superman in the first scene just fell flat. Turning the world back at the end of this cut didn't make sense either, as it would have been impossible for Clark to get his revenge on the bully in the diner as it never happened because of the time changing. The Eifel Tower scene is also missing, which I is one of the best scenes of the theatrical cut.

In my opinion Superman III isn't a bad film; it's just a bad Superman film. The comedy is ridiculous and the inclusion of Richard Pryor really hurt it, but it still has some great moments.
