5.0 out of 5 stars WORTH THE PRICE, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jerry Bruckheimer Action Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I had this pre-ordered and i received it 5 days later (I stay in East Africa), as usual my blur ray arrived well packed, though i am totally disappointed by the packaging, its a very thin cheap piece of paper that forms the case that holds all the discs in their respective boxes. This for me is the let down of the whole package, for such a distinguished Producer in Hollywood, the studio chooses this sort cheap packing. It does not look next to my collection of digibooks and steel books, even next to the other blu ray collections with the ordinary packaging.

Thankfully this is the only downside, they are 4 disc cases, each contains 2 discs, as it has been stated clearly over here by other reviewers, all movies are region free except Déjà Vu , which is strictly region B, Amazon needs to change this mistake.

Now on to the quality of the movies, i am pretty sure these are the old transfers that have been floating around, no new improvements have been made to the movies, but there are still excellent on blur ray, though its now very easy to notice the age of movies like Armageddon, don't get me wrong, I aint saying Armageddon looks bad, its still stunning on blu-ray, The rest of the movies stand out very well. No complaints from me.

Now for the sound, I am huge fan of DTS HD, closely followed by Dolby True HD, Unfortunately only Armageddon out of the whole collection comes with DTS HD master audio 5.1 soundtrack, which really gets all the speakers going when necessary, All the other movies have the standard 5.1 dolby digital soundtrack and no DTS HD master Audio soundtrack, but thank the lord they put a LPCM 5.1 soundtrack on the rest of the films, the thing about uncompressed PCM is that everything is very crisp, i watched the remaining 7 movies with the LPCM 5.1 soundtrack option (Not a fan of ordinary Dolby Digital 5.1 on Blu rays) and they where stunning.

As for features, dont expect any, the very few that are available are very very few.

All in all it's a great bargain for all these movies, except for the packaging though, nothing else should stop you from buying this, though i am very sure, we shall soon see a new Bruckheimer collection with brand new transfers, just wait, the studios always get us like that don't they, lol.
