5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch collection of McQueen classics June 4, 2005
Format:DVD
You could call him the quiet one. McQueen had a talent for portraying quite a lot with minimal dialog and that's the way he liked it. He has maybe 75 lines off dialog in "The Magnificent Seven" yet his presence is equal to that of star Yul Brynner. You'd be forgiven for being confused about which Steve McQueen boxed set to purchase. MGM has recently released "The Steve McQueen Collection" which features four McQueen classics that have previously been available on DVD; "The Thomas Crown Affair", "The Magnificent Seven", "Junior Bonner" and "The Great Escape".

"The Essential Steve McQueen Collection" is a different beast entirely; it does feature 1 title that is no different than the previously issued version -"Papillon". All the rest have either never been issued or, in the case of "Bullitt", are now in two disc deluxe editions that make this set a worthwhile addition to any collection.

The crown jewel of this set is the new deluxe edition of "Bullitt". McQueen plays San Francisco detective Frank Bullitt. He's been assigned to protect a witness for a major trial. The witness, though, is murdered. Before the post-mortem has begun, Bullitt hunts for the killers and plans on nailing them. Featuring an amazing high speed chase through the streets of San Francisco and shot entirely on location, "Bullitt" was Peter Yates' first major US film and it crackles with energy.

"Papillon" tells the story of a thief nick-named Papillon for the large butterfly tattooed on his chest. (McQueen) framed for murder in France and sent to Devil's Island for life. From the moment he steps on the boat headed to the prison he's planning his escape. He agrees to protect a financial thief Louis Dega (Dustin Hoffman).

By Eric

Warner Bros. obviously put a lot of work into this new Steve McQueen boxed set. I bought it today, and I'm astounded. I always loved McQueen, but I never knew "who he was". You can finally find that out by watching a great new documentary called

STEVE McQUEEN:THE ESSENCE OF COOL, which is one of two superb documentaries on the remastered BULLITT 2 Disc Special Edition in this box (more on the other later...)

You also get McQueen and Dustin Hoffman in the magnificent PAPILLION, McQueen and Ali MacGraw in the controversial and enticing THE GETAWAY, which features commentaries from a slew of

devotees to its director Sam Peckinpah that goes beyond the reverential and the astute. It's almost frighteningly obsessive in how much these folks live, breath, and eat Sam Peckinpah. In real life Peckinpah was not a happy person. I hope the same thing can't be said for the commentators.

Then there is a WONDERFUL commentary on the new-to-DVD CINCINNATI KID. Long overdue for release, this is a sparkling transfer for a 40 year old movie that feels quite contemporary,

Director Norman Jewison gives a wonderful, insightful commentary, and it's great to see such stalwart stars as Ann Margret, Edward G. Robinson, Karl Malden & Joan Blondell. Going backward, you get John Sturges' entertaining 1959 Sinatra vehicle NEVER SO FEW, but it was McQUeen who stole the movie. He's wonderful, and so is Sinatra and his leading lady Gina Lollabrigida. Another DVD debut. Lastly is McQueen in his 2nd to last film, TOM HORN. A sturdy western that holds up very well.

It's obvious McQueen was no longer his virile, youthful self,

but it doesn't effect the entertainment value of the piece.

Then the cherry on the sundae. THe definitive McQueen film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Time coming May 9, 2005
Format:DVD
If anyone deserves a box set it's Seve McQueen. The greatest of the Hollywood "Mans Man". McQueen made some great movies for Warner Brothers as he did for MGM before them, and we are lucky to get the fantastic Warner Brothers DVD treatment that they have bestowed on their recent box set.

While The GREAT ESCAPE is my personal favorite McQueen film I am happy to see BULLIT, and NEVER SO FEW in the same set. It's pretty funny seeing a movie not starring Steve McQueen in his box set. Never so few was a staring vehicle for Frank Sinatra, but because of his scene stealing co-star Sinatra went on record as calling NEVER SO FEW a McQueen film. It also had a great Director John Sturges who also made THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, and THE GREAT ESCAPE with McQueen.

PAPILLON, THE GETAWAY, THE CINCINATTI KID, and the very underated TOM HORN are also included in the awesome box set. I was not yet born when Steve McQueen passed away, but I can tell you this, I have not been on the planet for more than twenty three years, but I can safely say that there has not been a actor/stuntman cooler than Steve McQueen.

Overall this is a highly recommended set of six different Steve McQueen movies. It's a "must-have" package for McQueen fans or someone who enjoys 1960's era action or adventure films. If you have even the slightest interest in buying any two or three of the six movies offered, then it well worth buying the box set and not the individual DVDs. Here are my reviews of the six DVDs included in this package:

BULLIT

The synopsis of this film revolves around a mobster named Johnny Ross who flees Chicago after embezzling $2 million from a crime syndicate and goes to San Francisco to testify for a power-driven politician named Walter Chalmers (Robert Vaughn). Police Lt. Frank Bullit (Steve McQueen) is assigned to protect Ross for several days prior to testifying. Two hitmen manage to shoot Ross and this sets up the remainder of the movie where Bullit has to not only find these killers but has to appease Chalmers and Bullit's bosses in the police department since he was accountable for Ross's protection.

The signature of this film is of course the wild and fast chase between Bullit's '68 Mustang and the killers' Dodge Charger through the hilly streets of San Francisco. By today's Hollywood standards it's a very ordinary chase, but in its day, it was clearly a revolutionary segment. There were obviously car chases in movies prior to this film, but this chase brought filmmaking to a much higher energy level. But the film has more to offer than just a memorable high-speed chase. First, the character of Bullit played by McQueen is arguably the first of many to follow of young, stylish, and radical cops that a young generation could identify with.
