5.0 out of 5 stars Just want the Trilogy? This is for you, October 8, 2012
This review is from: The Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
■■ Just a Heads-Up, Amazon has merged reviews for The Dark Knight Trilogy, and the Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition (UCE). This is a review for just the Dark Knight Trilogy.

Disregard all the naysayers claiming this is a money grab. No, it's called having a choice. Not everyone wants the Super Duper Ultra Rare Limited Collector's Edition, that's often filled with a bunch of useless physical items. Some people just want to have the trilogy and nothing more. For $30 (currently), you get just that, and even a little bit more.

You get the following in the Blu-ray edition:

Disc 1: Batman Begins Feature Film
Disc 2: The Dark Knight Feature Film
Disc 3: The Dark Knight Special Features
Disc 4: The Dark Knight Rises Feature Film
Disc 5: The Dark Knight Rises Special Features

PLUS you get a 64 Page excerpted (i.e. shortened) version of the wonderful book: "The Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy"

That is tremendous bang for your buck! Not only with the movies, but there are hours and hours of special features included too, including a documentary about the Batmobile. The Ultimate Collector's Edition, which won't be released for another year will no doubt cost at least twice as much. The only thing I have a problem with here is the cover art. It just doesn't look anything like Nolan's Batman.

The DVD version of the Trilogy is a 3-disc set and lacks many of the extras found in the Blu-ray set, but it does look nicer. It has a lenticular cover featuring the Batman sign from all 3 movies. It looks really cool compared to the cover used for the Blu-ray edition.

All in all, this is a wonderful set to get if you don't own any of the movies yet. Heck, even if you do, it's still a great value if you just want The Dark Knight Rises. Consider TDKR sells for around $20-25, for just a few bucks more you get the 2 preceding films, and a book. You really can't go wrong here!

Here is a list of the Special Features that included. The list may not be all-inclusive. The set has no exclusive features, but rather, the same ones that come with the individual releases

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the Collection Gotham fans Deserve, July 12, 2013
■■ Just a Heads-Up, Amazon has merged reviews for The Dark Knight Trilogy, and the Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collector's Edition (UCE). This is a review for just the UCE. I also have a review for the Dark Knight Trilogy which can also be found here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R18Y6HWBZGPF2K/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B009JBZH54&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you're reading this, odds are you already own at least one of the movies included here. Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy stands as one of the best, and most successful comic book screen adaptations of all time. Warner has released, and re-released these movies several times over the years. Unfortunately, previous Blu-ray releases have not been perfect. The picture quality left videophiles wanting a remastering of the films (well at least Batman Begins and TDK), but sadly after such a long wait, Warner will be releasing the same exact transfers found in previous Blu-ray releases.

There are just a few new items included. You'll be getting 90 minutes worth of new extra features on a bonus disc, including an interview between Nolan, and Superman director Richard Donner, as well as a documentary about the trilogy. Physical extras include 3 Hot Wheels of Batman's vehicles, some Mondo art cards, and a hardcover book.

The discs aren't stored in regular Blu-ray cases, but rather in a "Book" with slots for each movie. This is similar to the Book-style packaging seen in the Alien Antrhology, and Star Wars Complete Saga sets. Some people may not like this as it doesn't protect the disc as well, but Blu-rays are more scratch-resistant so if you take care when removing and putting them back in, they should be okay.

Discs

Disc 1 Batman Begins Feature + Special Features
Disc 2 The Dark Knight Feature
Disc 3 The Dark Knight Special Features
Disc 4 The Dark Knight Rises Feature
Disc 5 The Dark Knight Rises Special Features
Disc 6 Bonus Disc of New Special Features (details follow)
Plus: Ultraviolet Digital Copy code for all 3 Movies

(Full details of all the existing Special features included here can be read in my previous review found on The Dark Knight Trilogy page)

NEW Special Features:

■ The Fire Rises: The Creation and Impact of The Dark Knight Trilogy - The inside perspective on the fascinating story behind the creation of one of the most celebrated franchises and how it changed the scope of movie making...forever. Full of never-before-seen footage, rare moments, and exclusive interviews with Guillermo Del Toro, Damon Lindelof, Michael Mann, Zack Snyder, Richard Roeper and others.
■ Christopher Nolan & Richard Donner: A Conversation - For the first time, Directors Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy) and Richard Donner (Superman) sit down to discuss the trials and triumphs involved in bringing the two most iconic superheroes of all time to the big screen, and how Superman influenced Nolan when developing Batman Begins.
■ IMAX® Sequences: The Dark Knight; The Dark Knight Rises - See your favorite scenes as they were intended in the original IMAX© aspect ratio

Exclusive NEW Memorabilia:

■ Premium Mattel Hot Wheels Vehicles: Batmobile, Batpod and Tumbler

■ Newly commissioned collectible art cards by Mondo featuring Scarecrow, Joker, Bane, Harvey Dent, and Ra's al Ghul

■ 48-page hardcover book featuring production stills and behind the scenes images from all three movies

So is this worth the $100 suggested price? If you already own the movies, I'd have to say no. The cars are made by Hot Wheels, and are probably just a few steps up from Happy Meal toys, and if you want a book on the trilogy, I recommend the definitive The Art and Making of The Dark Knight Trilogy. While it isn't quite as "Ultimate" as the name suggests, newcomers, and die-hard fans will still find some things to enjoy here. Everyone else will be better off saving their money and getting the standard trilogy set, or the individual releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trilogy That Is Going To Be Hard To Live Up To, December 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Length:: 7:11 Mins

The boxset has finally been released; all three installments of Nolan's realistic and cinematic take on Batman dispersed on five discs. While people tend to focus on the acute realism, it is not so grounded that it defies the source in which it came from. The three films circle around different Batman comic arcs in unique ways. This boxset includes:

Batman Begins (2005)
The Dark Knight (2008)
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

A 64 page book detailing behind the scenes with the inside look many of us have been yearning for, which makes for an entertaining read. Those hours of extra content on the discs are just not always as accessible as a quick read available right away at your fingertip. All three films come in great, the picture truly is wonderful as it actually is filmed on, well film. 70 mm cameras come in handy when heightened realism is at foot, which illustrates a distinct contrast to the digital jitter of today's 'films'. The explosive scenes and death defying stunts go beyond the mystery of cape and cowl, the bonus content reveals the meticulous care for quality and picture quality.

Batman Begins is self-explanatory, Bruce Wayne finds himself with guilt, anger, and more importantly fear. He must confront his inner demons to establish truthful vengeance. Begins was foreshadowed by its 2008 sequel The Dark Knight, which displayed Heath Ledger's acting prowess as the chaotic Joker.

Batman's dilemmas were always skin deep, literally as Bruce Wayne juggles his persona's before the Jokers attempt to disrupt society. The Dark Knight gravitated audiences eyes on the villain whose intensity was so hot make up would smear and further taint that gruesome near necrotic scar cheek to cheek. It was as though Bruce's conflict were buried in favor of the Joker's antagonizing run through Gotham City. It is not to be overlooked though, the Joker tempts Batman's vary nature. The Dark Knight is often considered top dog of the three, pitting Begins and Rises for the second position.

In all honesty I thought The Dark Knight Rises was just as engaging, just not in equal amounts. Rises, frame for frame is every bit as good as The Dark Knight. Ounce for ounce it becomes a bit more on the rare side when it comes to Batman, who has disappeared after the events of The Dark Knight. Likened to that of a hermit Bruce once again must learn what it means to be Batman, and not just a man in a mask.

I wrote up an in-depth review for The Dark Knight Rises the other evening, which can be found under the normal release of the film, if anyone is interested. The `Ultraviolet' digital stream is available until December 2014, the other slip insert I still have yet to read. The box itself is quite nice for the price. Best obtain now, three great films with a book and a digital `copy' for a little over the price of the average movie release is quite the deal.

I had to shrink the video, literally compressing it to a file size that would upload. I apologize about the video size, and the noise. Lastly, this trilogy is a great buy, the price is just a bonus.

This review is from: The Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Exactly what I purchased. All three movies on Blueray plus Ultraviolet, I don't see how this isn't a steal. Not to mention I got it in a day after ordering. Don't listen to the 1,2 star reviews. Their parents didn't hug them enough.

This review is from: The Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I already had Batman Begins on Blu Ray, but when comparing the price of The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises to this three movie set, it was cheaper to buy this trilogy than the other two movies individually. I love a bargain and will now give my Blu Ray Batman Begins to a family member.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rather Pay Now, October 19, 2012
I'd rather pre-order this and save money. I don't really care about special features and extra items too much, the point is to have the film itself. Those who say it's quick money grab, it's his/her choice. It's going to be more expensive in the future. Besides, Not everyone uses the extra content that comes with their special/collectors edition. It's useless to me. I am sticking with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value IMO, December 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Dark Knight Trilogy (Batman Begins / The Dark Knight / The Dark Knight Rises) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Considering that, say, the LOTR trilogy box set was close to $100 when it came out. This batman trilogy is a steal at $30. I was already going to purchase TDKR on blu-ray but it only cost a few more dollars to get the other two as well (which I only have on DVD at the moment). Well worth it.
