Overall incomplete, but a great value box set.
15 May 2019
This review is on the 5 disc box set titled 'Ultimate Missions Collection'.
If I was pedantic I'd complain about the format of this kit :
MI 1 consists of 2 discs, one with the film and one with bonus features.
MI 2 has one disc only consisting of the film and bonus features.
MI 3 consists of 2 discs, one with the film and one with bonus features.
Nicely held in a good disc case with an outer cardboard sleeve, all films have multi languages and subtitles including, importantly, English. Why does MI 2 have only one disc while the other two films in this set have two discs devoted to each film?
However they are top class action films with that thread of clever intriguing plots, superb actors doing the best that the excellent scripts allow them to do (in this type of visual feast), and direction by three of Hollywood's best, De Palma, Woo and a first for me, J J Abrams.
Hollywood has always been good at something, be it all those old films made over the last fifty years still beloved by reviewers and buyers, or these modern action fests loved by younger audiences which offer the same thing ---- entertainment ---- the emphasis today being on action and special effects often though there is always room for that exceptional film that is cherished solely for its dialogue and the quality of the acting.
Totally absorbing films and as the franchise has expanded these earlier box sets that are incomplete have plummeted in price so snap one up on Amazon.
