4 great action movies for a great price. You will usually find these individual movies for the same price as this 4 pack on its own. This website lists the blu-rays as 'Region B' but I can confirm that it works on a Region A PS3 and probably any other region since there is no listing of regions on the box. Anyway, the movies themselves are a good mix of comedy and action, with Wanted being the most serious and Scott Pilgrim being the most comedy. Highly recommended.Report this review
I won't go into detail about the films themselves; you either want to watch them or you don't. However, as action films, they are all decent enough in their own right, although Kick-Ass definitely stands out in this set, as well as Hell Boy 2 for its rich and beautifully imagined world that is great for the Blu-ray format. Scott Pilgrim also looks very good in high definition - the hyper-style 'comic book' effects are sharp and perhaps captured my attention more than the film itself. Wanted is less spectacular, but still a watchable flick. The main draw for this particular pack though, is its repackaging under the 'Reel Heroes' title, clearly taking a comic book effect to each cover. The artwork hasn't been changed, though - The original covers have just been animated to achieve the aforementioned effect, but I think they did a good job. Each disc is presented in its own case, which is another plus point as I have seen some compilation Blu-ray packs that put all the discs into one case. So, if you enjoyed or think you will enjoy these films, I would definitely recommend this pack as it is cheaper than buying each one individually (when I bought it, at least) and newly styled covers are great to look at!Report this review
I love getting blurays for the extra definition, but I hate paying over the odds for them. This pack though, really is amazing value for money. Scott Pilgrim & Kick Ass are 2 of my favourite films from the last couple of years, and are the primary reason I bought the pack. Wanted & Hellboy 2 aren't really in the same league, but are both action packed and make a good evening of high definition sound & action if you're willing to turn off your brain for a couple of hours. The boxes have a funky "comic book" design, apparently limited edition, that didn't really do much for me, but I don't buy films because the boxes look pretty.Report this review
