amazing set at an amazing price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: V for Vendetta / Watchmen / Constantine (Triple-Feature) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
this is a really great set, you get three comic book movies (all three of which are quite good) they all have special features and all in all it's a great package
first off is the packaging, they put all three discs in a single case, it's compact and the discs are easy to get out so A+ (it also doesn't have any of that "recycling bullcrap where they take out chunks of the case)
second off the movies themselves,
V for Vendetta: this movie is worth the price of the whole set by itself, it's a combination of an action/suspense thriller that is the highlight of the set. the action is fluid and beautiful, the dialogue is pure poetry, and the foreshadowing has a nice balance of easy to get things and more difficult ones which makes it so that you feel great about catching a tidbit here and there but also makes it even more enjoyable on return viewings where preexisting knowledge lets you catch the subtle foreshadowing.
Watchmen Director's cut: first off props to warner bros for putting the directors cut on here instead of the basic version, it adds a lot of value to this set. this movie is quite good though I must say it was very overhyped but on a second watch it was true to the comic most of the way through and generally was a fun movie.
Constantine: this one came as a complete shock, I had only heard meh reviews for this movie so I didn't have much hope for it going in but honestly it was the high point of the set. it's a great story that's quite interesting, you don't need to have read the comics to understand it, it uses some great cgi (the graphics themselves are actually kind of low quality but the art style that is used with it masks the deficiencies quite well to give a few scenes some beautiful scenery), keanu reeves's emotionless acting actually complements the characters so he doesn't feel out of place, and it's just a fun movie. the only thing I had an issue with is the special features, first off there are quite a few on the constantine dvd second off they are in something closer to VHS quality than they are Blu-ray quality which is really a shame given how interesting some of them actually are.
overall I highly recommend this set, three great movies at a solid price. you can't go wrong with this set.
