4.0 out of 5 stars Quality boxset
Three classic titles in one boxset! "Serpico" and "Chinatown" have a small selection of special features, but "The Untouchables" is a vanilla disc (no notable extra features). The slimline case is also handy if you have a large DVD collection and need the extra space. All three films are presented in a fine print, with great sound quality. A worthy addition to any...

3.0 out of 5 stars reasonable value but misleading packaging
I bought this set in Morrison's and promptly returned it for a refund.

The packaging clearly states; Chinatown 'Collector's Edition', showing the artwork from that release and confirming the extras on the back.

The actual Chinatown dvd inside is the 9 year old original release which looks awful compared to Chinatown (Special Collector's Edition)...

This review is from: Serpico / The Untouchables / Chinatown [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this set in Morrison's and promptly returned it for a refund.

The packaging clearly states; Chinatown 'Collector's Edition', showing the artwork from that release and confirming the extras on the back.

The actual Chinatown dvd inside is the 9 year old original release which looks awful compared to Chinatown (Special Collector's Edition) [1974] [DVD].
That release has a restored picture that looks fantastic, and this is the one to get (the region 1 CE also has original mono sound option).

If you don't care about picture quality (or Chinatown) this set is worth getting for Serpico (which has a great picture quality) and a reasonable transfer on the original dvd of The Untouchables (again misleadingly showing the artwork of the superior re-release).

Three brilliant movies, anyway you slice it.

1.0 out of 5 stars not the collectors edition as stated, 10 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Serpico / The Untouchables / Chinatown [DVD] (DVD)
I noticed only now that Chinatown is not the collectors edition as shown in the box :(((
Image quality is quite bad and it's really bad to find out that the products is not what is displayed on the box!!!
Also the Untachable disc is an old edition but at least it's not sold as a new edition...

In any case the truth is that in this cheap boxset they put all old DVD release no longer on sale, while the new ones with a good transfer and audio are sold apart.
However being the boxset so cheap if you don't mind for the quality it's a bargain....

BTW this is not Amazon fault, they rely on the information written on the boxset, so this is only Paramount rensponsability.

This review is from: Serpico / The Untouchables / Chinatown [DVD] (DVD)
It was a requested Christmas present so, one would assume, they had knowledge of the DVD. It was well received.
