4.0 out of 5 stars Flintmania!!, November 9, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ultimate Flint Collection (Our Man Flint / In Like Flint) (DVD)
A very nice repackaging of the Flint movies, well worth purchasing by diehard fans. All the principles of the films are now unfortunately dead (including the late great James Coburn, who would've added immeasurably to any commentary tracks), but the commentary tracks included are definitely the highlight of this new edition. Two uber movie geeks (sorry, can't remember their names) bring tons of charm, enthusiasm & wit to the commentaries which are chockablock with endless fun spy-movie/TV trivia. (They, along with the rest of us Flint fans, whine long & hard about the fact that Coburn chose not to continue the series after a mere 2 films---hell, he could've at least made it a trilogy.) Additional features on a 3rd disc are pretty lame (including the SUPREMELY lame 1977 made-for-TV movie---a Flint flick in name only with virtually no connection to the Coburn films). Again, the commentaries are what make this collection worthwhile. Highly recommended!!

Update: The more recent limited edition Blu Ray version is a MUST for Flint fans! It's visually a HUGE improvement over previous editions. The Twilight Time Company has obviously treated this as a labor of love, producing a pristine, digitally remastered print of the film. The fun, '60's-era, day-glo/pop-art colors DO pop and the level of visual detail is amazing, probably looking better than when the flick was originally released theatrically. Throw in DTS sound and a whole bevy of new extras (including the very good commentary track from the earlier version)and you've got a great package, well worthwhile for fans of the Flint series.

This appears to be a review of a 3-disk set of the James Coburn "Flint" films, but is attached to the order page for the first of them - "Our Man Flint".

Examples: "A very nice repackaging of the Flint movies" (plural)..."Additional features on a 3rd disc are pretty lame" (3rd disk?).

I believe this review should be moved to the listing for The Ultimate Flint Collection (Our Man Flint / In Like Flint) - a 3 disc set.

The review was originally posted for the 3-disc edition, and not for the single disc of the 1st film. (In fact, it's still listed there as "most helpful comment".) Sounds like you got a major beef there with the Amazon people.

With the Blu-ray update in your review, this is an extremely helpful review for me. I have the DVD ultimate set. But I think I'm willing to upgrade to the Blu-ray, for the higher visual and audio quality and more bonus features.

Thank you.
