I love all the Airport films and this is a great Box-Set, and I can see why the first Airport was nominated for so many Oscars.

The rest of the films are well worth a watch, and WOW! what a great price. The box-set is very nice, its not like when they shove four dvd cases into one box, this folds out nicely. The first film Airport soundtrack is in 5.1 DTS, and sounds very nice.

If you can find this at a decent price - I got my set for just over £5 - snap it up for nostalgia value and sheer entertainment.

The series starts off very stylishly with the soapy, melodramatic Airport (1970), and declines in quality over time. My favourite things about the original are Alfred Newman's classy score, the schmaltzy gimmicks (such as the overused split screen) and the excellent cast.

Airport '75 is surprisingly well made, with spectacular photography and generally high production values. At the same time it is terribly cheesy and replete with bad dialogue, making this the prime target for the later Airplane! spoof. But it's fun and occasionally suspenseful. I enjoyed cameos from the likes of Hollywood old-timers Myrna Loy and Gloria Swanson.

Airport '77 was always my favourite as a kid. The production values are poorer here (the jumbo jet bobbing its head out of the Atlantic waters looks like a cardboard cut-out), and there are patches of dullness, but again it's generally entertaining.

The Concorde: Airport '79 is BY FAR the worst in the series, and it is no surprise it was laughed out of the theatres in previews. The script is painfully bad, and the plot is outright ridiculous. The height of silliness is when pilot George Kennedy diverts a missile by opening the cockpit window of a concorde and firing a flare gun *while flying upside down.* You can't make this stuff up. Well, evidently someone did, and probably even got paid for it. I felt I should have been paid to *watch* it.

Nevertheless, their God-awfulness is a major reason for watching these movies. I enjoyed the set, and if you grew up with the series, you undoubtedly will too.

Although The Poseidon Adventure gets all the credit, Airport is the film that really kicked off the 70s disaster craze. Unlike its three follow-ups, this adaptation of Arthur Hailey's doorstop novel really is as much about the snowbound airport as it is the imperilled plane, one of many plots the movie juggles. Hailey had built his novel around a 1956 Canadian TV movie he wrote called Flight Into Danger, but much of it plays like a Peyton Place-esquire soap opera: will embattled airport manager Burt Lancaster stay married to Dana Wynter or to his job - or will he go off into the sunrise with that nice airline rep Jean Seberg? Will pilot Dean Martin leave his wife now he's got stewardess Jacqueline Bisset up the duff? Will Helen Hayes' scene-stealing geriatric stowaway get caught? Will George Kennedy clear the blocked runway in time to avoid tragedy? Will Van Heflin's mentally troubled demolitions expert set off the bomb in his briefcase? Would there be a movie if he didn't?

Shot like an epic to emphasise the size and scale of everything (it even opens with an overture of sound effects of a busy airport terminal before bursting into Alfred Newman's urgent rumba-led score) it's a big, glossy well crafted entertainment that still holds up surprisingly well, especially in widescreen where the occasional split-screen effects come into their own (not to mention a great gag with a priest and an annoying passenger during the crash landing that's usually lost in the TV panning-and-scanning). It's the least sensational of the series but still the most effective, and there's no shortage of familiar faces in the passenger seats, from Lloyd Nolan, Maureen Stapleton, Jesse Royce Landis, Whit Bissell and the original "Jimmy Bond 007" of the CIA, Barry Nelson.

If you are an avid movie fan like me you have probably realised that the new 'craze' of movie shopping is the Box Set. Not two years ago I hated box sets because I loved to have all of my single DVDs in a nice neat order, but now even I have fallen for the charms of the box set. Thankfully studios and promoters have discovered that the box set needs to be elegant and attractive but also as compact as possible. What does this have to do with Airport? Well, this 4-Disc set is a lovely M-Lock style package that has its own sturdy, attractive slip-case. Each disc contains one of the Airport films of the 70s and the four in order are Airport (1970), Airport 1975, Airport '77 and Airport '79: The Concorde. It is VERY important to realise that this set inlcudes the ONLY AVAILABLE DVD releases of the latter 3 films, and you should buy it because the individual releases of these are very unlikely to happen (especially in the case of The Concorde). The discs themselves are nicely decorated with the turbofan of a Jet engine and when opened up this package really is a first-class purchase. So can it really get any better than everything I have just said? Yes it can, because while these films are all very old and three of them have never been released on DVD the digital transfer is fantastic; all 4 films are of exceptional video and audio quality and combine to form what is arguably the least advertised (I found it by accident), most collectable DVD box set released in a long time. Buy it before it goes...
