Simply click below for a review of each "Die
Hard" film and seperate DVD. Enjoy!
Each film is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen
and each transfer is THX certified. The films look their
best and are incredible to look at. While the first film has
a great transfer, I was hoping for better. Still, it looks
incredible. The two sequels are some of the best Fox
transfers on the market. Simply put, near flawless despite
some blemishes and other annoyances here and there.
With THX certified audio, Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1
tracks, the "Die Hard" films sound incredible. Movies like
these were simply MADE for speakers as they are action
films. A great balance of sounds and some truly excellent
surround effects for each film, you really feel like you're
part of the action. Explosions, crashes, fights... you name
it. IT WILL BLOW YOU TO THE BACK WALL OF THE THEATRE.
While the first "Die Hard" is the only one part of the
Five Star Collection, the two sequels feature some
incredible supplements of their own. There's a lot to
explore and take in here on how each film was made. The
first "Die Hard" has a lot of great features and while the
sequels don't have as much, they still pack a lot more than
most special editions these days. An incredible job in this
section and no fan will be disappointed here.
The "Die Hard" films are great, and I'm grateful Fox
re-released them the way they were meant to be. Top it off
with some incredible presentations and some fantastic
features, not to mention an ideal price for a set too, and
you have a series of film worth owning. DVD fans... sit
back, stuff in the popcorn and enjoy one fine action series
that raises the bar and is above the rest.
