Absolutely brilliant...... but a new box set will almost certainly be released in 2008,
This review is from: Die Hard Trilogy (6 Disc Collector's Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
A fantastic box set which contains Special Editions of the first three Die Hard films. Each film is a double disc set and packed full of extras such as promotional material, behind the scenes featurettes, scene deconstructions and so much more. This has to be the best action trilogy out there - each film is equally enjoyable in my opinion, with witty one-liners and plenty of action. This box set also includes a special full-colour booklet which contains interesting background information on the films and is actually very informative. There is also a film cell reproduction included - I think the film cell is the same in all copies of the box set, with John McLane looking out the window of the skyscraper in the original Die Hard (wearing his now iconic sweat and blood stained white vest of course). It is supposed to be a limited edition box set but it's been in large supply for years now, although I suspect that could soon change when Die Hard 4 gets its DVD release in early 2008. This is a brilliant box set that is good value for money but expect to see a brand new box set containing all four films in the new year.
* Note: Since submitting this review I have noticed that the film cell is no longer included with this box set, nor is the booklet. It seems the box set has been slightly repackaged inside - the cardboard cases (with artwork on the inside cover) being replaced by generic plastic cases. Whilst this might not bother most people I thought I would mention it. This still represents very good value for money - 3 classic films, 6 discs and loads of extras!
