5.0 out of 5 stars 3 great movies for a bargain price, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doomsday Collection [Blu-ray] [1996] (Blu-ray)
To get three blurays for less than 9 is a bargain in anyone's books and this boxset has three of my favourite scifi films. I already have them on dvd but couldn't say no to this set at the price. 'The Day After Tomorrow' is an excellent film from the effects point of view and from a slow build up becomes a race against time with humans pitted against the elements in what seems to be an impossible situation. It manages to remain gripping throughout. 'The Day The Earth Stood Still' is a remake of the Michael Rennie version from the '50's but although not a patch on the original still manages to convey the ominous feeling of the unknown visitor and his robot guardian. Brought up to date with good effects and a different angle, this is still an enjoyable film in its own right and different enough with a suitably gripping climax. 'Independance Day' has to be my favourite out of the three with it's slow burn start of the shadow falling over the moon to the alien ships hovering over the cities. No one realises the true intent of the aliens until Jeff Goldblum finally works it out. From then on it's a rollercoaster ride and a big gung ho American action movie. Great for a jumbo bag of popcorn! As I said before, for the money you can't go wrong. Recommended.
