Nice quality for all 4 movies but somewhat let down by the lack of extras. No extras at all for 1/2. Some extras including an alternate ending for 3.

4 apparently should have extras according to the case cover but I think the menu system is buggy. The first time I loaded the disc I had a choice of languages but after that I can't even get that back. I updated my player firmware but still nothing :-(

Is Die hard with a vengeance the uncut version?,only people on other forums are saying it is the censored version.
If anyone can verify this it would be a great help also is One and Two the same as the previous versions regarding Picture Quality and sound?
Follow up:- so glad I bought this set,films look and sound awesome and number 3 is uncut,number 4 is still the pg13 version but that is the only version available on bluray,but this is still an excellent boxset defo worth a purchase.

Die Hard changed the face of action movies, and in doing so has had hundreds of copies, but none has ever matched the 1988 classic. For me making Die Hard the best action movie ever made!
Die Hard 1988.
There is nothing I can say about the film that has not be said before. It took the action movie hand book and tore it up and re-writ it. No more lumbering muscle bound hero's just a normal guy in the wrong place and at the wrong time. Willis shot from being a TV star to being one of the most banable movie stars of all time. Although now heading toward a quater of a century Die Hard has not aged, of course the yuppie hostages and hair belong in the 80's but therwst of the film still blows most modern action films out of the water. Not to mention Alan Rickman graceing the screen as the most likeable bad guy. It's so quotable and re-watchable and I never tire of it.

Die Hard 2 Die Harder 1990.
Another Christmas another hostage situation, this time upping the stakes at Dulles International Airport. OK so this again being set at Christmas and McClane's wife again is in jeppardy does stretch credability, but Die Hard 2 is still a worthy sequel, although not as slick as the first, the film is much bigger and it's worth watching just for the scene where McClane comes up through a runway grill to face down a landing aircraft. Willis is great, the action is great, although I'm sure being sucked into a jet engine does cause seriouse damage, as if a bird strike can bring a jet down, I sure a man would be disasterous, and I'm not sure it's that easy to open a jets fuel cap. But switch the brain off and enjoy a great sequel.

Die Hard With A Vengeance 1995.
On DVD this third entry was seriously censored to keep the cerificate 15, the violence was tones down and also the swearing, so it good to see the full un-cut version finally arrives on Blu Ray. The film again is a very entertaining cat and mouse thriller as willis and Jackson try to out smart Jeremy Irons's Simon. The film is exciting and very funny, but Jeremy Iron's is not a patch on Alan Rickman as he minces his stuttering German Accent, and the final act on the boat always seemed out of place as if belonging to a early Bond movie, Why strap them to a bomb? just shoot them! Never the less as a third entry it's great and even better now it's uncut.;
****
Die Hard 4.0 (A.K.A. Live Free And Die Hard) 2007.
Old cop old tricks. The action is great, the cyber plot is a good idea but some how does not carry the film. But the biggest problem I have with this is for the American Release they tones it all down to fit in with the PG13 restrains. Die Hard is a blokes action film and not a teenagers, and Although there is the harder cut available on DVD this BluRay is the watered down cinema cut.
***1/2
This is a collection that no action fan should be without, the extra's are good but they are carry overs from the previous DVD releases, and having the uncut Die Hard With A Vengeance is a huge bonus, having the watered down Die Hard 4.0 is slightly frustrating, but with a fifth and maybe final entry in the series in production there's no doubt the complete saga will be released in the future and maybe this time it could be the uncut new bonus material filled extravaganza all the fans truly deserve.

There is nothing more to say then Die hard has to be the definitive action movie cult classic, made back in the 80s making Bruce Willis a massive action star, its great to now see them on bluray so if you dont already own them now is the time, Die hard 2 was an early 90s action classic with a cool cast, and Die hard 3 was an awesome comeback with a slightly different twist to the series and also stars the awesome Sam Jackson, Die hard 4 was a straight up action film, many people didnt like it but I feel it was still a great action movie with Willis still proving he is the one and only John McClain, great set of movies that should be in any action fans collection.

You can't really review a boxset that isn't out, but how could one of the best trilogys of all time be any worse by being in HD?!
