4.0 out of 5 stars V The final Battle don't get confused 28 April 2004
Format:DVD
V The final Battle is great. This is the continuation of V The MiniSeries.
The important thing is to know in which order you should watchthis series if you are really interest.
1. V The mini series which is where the Alien make their first contact.(One two sided DVD about 3 hours)
2. V The final Battle which continues where the mini series finished. (TwoDVDs, One two sided DVD and the other one, one side only in total about 4hours).
3. V The complete Series which are 19 episodes after V the final battle.By the way this DVD has not been released yet. I have pre-order it inAmazon.com (July 2004). Hopefully with this comment Amazon.co.uk wouldhave it before so I can pre-order it here instead. (3 DVDs about 800min).
I hope this comment help as it is very annoying to watch it in adifferent order.
Just four stars because the special effects are not brilliant but if wewere in 1984 I would say more than 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Visitors continue their quest to take Earth 22 Mar 2005
By D. Evans VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Following on from the hugely successful original mini series, V The Final Battle, continues the story of a group of resistance fighters and their attempts to show the rest of the World that the alien reptilians, disguised in human appearance, who have arrived on Earth, are in fact manipulators who wished to enslave mankind by eating them or using them as soldiers in their fight against another alien race. By the time the second mini series had arrived, the original series devisor and writer, Kenneth Johnson, had left the production following a dispute over the reduction of costs avoided to The Final Battle.
In retrospect the cost reductions do not affect the overall look of the series, if anything the effects are more streamlined, the effects in particularly the models used for the Motherships look far more detailed and impressive then in the first series, and nearly all the original cast return, alongside some new additions. Perhaps what is missed however is the dark gritty look that Johnson strived to achieve in his original perception of the series. The Final Battle is less horrific and more like other science fiction serials. The incidental music is also more upbeat this time round. Finally the obvious Nazi overtures are less prevalent. For those who enjoyed the original series, Johnson and his influence are therefore missed for the reasons mentioned above. However the first episode, which is also easily the best of the three, keeps the viewer entertained with various subplots, plenty of action and interesting characterisation. For example the two women who previously made up main character Mike Donovan's life, both undergo interesting developments.

"V - The Final Battle" concludes the story started in the previous DVD "V - The Mini Series". The chances are if you are looking to buy this DVD you already know what to expect having purchased the previous one, but for newcomers, let me explain.

V was a popular mini series from the 1980's that told the story of an invading alien race who come to Earth to rob it of its water and process human beings for food. It was not an all out invasion as such, the aliens came in peace and gradually began to take over by "converting" people and through lies and deceit.

There are many parallels in the story to the persecution of the Jews in WWII and the aliens, the "Visitors", are portrayed in the same vein as an Earth based fascist society.

What makes V stand out from its peers is the great relationship that the various characters share, this is not so much an effects extravaganza (although they were good for the time and budget), as it is a story of how different people cope and react to a fascist regime and the threat of extinction.

Younger people who don't remember the series originally may not be particularly impressed by V, but for the older sci-fi fan, it is essential viewing. V inspired many of ideas in later sci-fi blockbusters including Independence Day and The Matrix, which just goes to show how influential it was.

The DVD itself contains two discs (one of which is double sided) and the final three episodes from the five part mini series at approximately an hour and a half running time per episode. There are precious little in the way of extras but you do get a lot of viewing for the money. Just remember you need to buy the first DVD as well!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Original V TV Series 10 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
I bought the original V TV series DVD not realizing that it did not contain all the original episodes but never fear because here are the remaining episodes and all at a very reasonable price.
The special effects may be a little dated but the human story behind the sci fi is the real star of the show.
Watching this show again brought back some great memories for me and a lot of these American tv programmes were a big deal back in the days of only 4 channels, virtually all of the UK were tuned in every night.
And just listen to that theme music, sends shivers down the spine. Brilliant TV!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie,Poor DVD 19 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I loved V when it was first shown on t.v. in 1984 and I decided to buy the DVD,it brought back memories of a 14 year old boy looking forward to seeing what happened in the next episode and I still enjoy V just as much now as I did 18 years ago.The DVD is a bit disappointing,no featurettes,no commentry,just scene selection.It has a great story,but nothing that we haven't really seen before,the sfx are looking really dated(they weren't too bad 18 years ago).Great buy for the nostalgia.
