This set does not include the Digital Download codes for the movies; these are available in the individual releases (and the Batman boxset) only.
The set also does not include individual cases for each movie, you get 3 thick 7-disc cases (one for the 7 movies in 4K, one for the 7 movies in 1080p and one for the special features discs)
With that said, much of the content inside is very good and highly recommended!
Movie-wise, I did enjoy all 7 films which made it a good purchase (I actually opted for the individual releases of all 7 due to the design of the set, but the content is the same)
Each of the films were mastered in 4K (rather than a 2K upscale that we see in many releases) and inclue DTS-HDMA 5.1 audio (but no Atmos audio track) - these are the same on the individual releases and the boxset. I found the audio to be very similar to the Blu-Ray audio.
The movies themselves:
Dunkirk: Probably the best 4K title I've seen to date. Very, very sharp throughout. Much of the film uses the full-screen (1.78:1) making it even that much better. Clarity, sharpness, color, everything was perfect here. I don't think I had any complaints about this one. Even compared to the best 4K releases, I'd probably put this at the very top.
Batman Begins: This is an upgrade from the original Blu-Ray but mainly because the original Blu-Ray was so bad. With a very low filesize and bitrate, anything would make this look better. Overall, I was a little disappointed in the 4K of this one as it seemed very hit-or-miss. Some shots look very noticeably better while others seem "OK". Much of the indoor ones shots were disappointing while the outdoor ones looked very nice. The HDR helps add to the upgrade, but I wouldn't go in expecting too much. I wouldn't upgrade from the Blu-Ray for this unless you just want a slightly better presentation.
Dark Knight: This is where it gets good. The Dark Knight looks fantastic in 4K. The sharpness, colors, everything about it is great. It's coming up on 10-years-old at this point but still made a great upgrade. Highly recommended even for those who own the Blu-Ray.
Dark Knight Rises: Despite being the newer film, this one I felt wasn't quite as good as Dark Knight. It still looked very good, but lacked a lot of what made Dark Knight so impressive (particularly the outdoor shots and variety of colors). One gripe I did have with much of this set are the black levels: On an OLED TV (which should display Black as solid black) many of these, include DK Rises.. display it as a dark grey, much like an LCD or LED TV. This is a design choice that I disagree with, but other than that it looks very good.
Interstellar: Another amazing looking discs. Similar to the ones above: Very, very clear looking film with beautiful colors and sharpness. I would have given this one a 5/5 if it weren't for the black-levels. Similar to mentioned above, Black displays as a very dark-grey and this affects the outer space scenes. When the intro of the movie looks better (because it has solid black levels) it's not good to see a grey outer space during the film itself. Otherwise beautiful though, and I doubt anyone on an LED/LCD would notice. OLED owners will though!
Inception: This is one I was a little surprised by. It's relatively new but much of it seemed like a minor upgrade. I'd put it ahead of Batman Begins, but not by too much. I found it to be pretty soft with some very sharp moments to it, so I guess the best way to put it is "inconsistent". Better than the Blu-Ray but after seeing some of the titles above, I was a little let down! I was expecting a lot by this one.
Prestige: Oddly enough, the one I had the least hope for, actually turned out pretty nice! Not perfect, not a huge upgrade, but I found it to be sharp and looking good for most of the movie. We're not talking Dunkirk, Interstellar or even Dark Knight Rises clarity, but it's better than Batman Begins. Again, my gripe here comes down to the raised black levels which are very noticeable while watching on an OLED.
In the end.. is the set worth it? Depends on the price. The content is the same as the individual releases but the boxset has a terrible case and misses out on the digital copies. At a hundred bucks it would be a no-brainer. At a hundred fifty, when the individual releases with great slipcovers and digital copies, sells for about the same.. that's the way to go.
The problem was finally resolved, with all UHD Bluray disc working. Or I would have rated 5 stars.
I must point out that ALL 7 of the Christopher Nolan UHD Bluray disk are TRUE 4K from the source DI 4K.
Not DI 2K as I come to learn after buying 20 some odd 4K movies, that most 4K UHD Bluray movies are marketed.
Check out IMDB database for details under, MORE, then got to TECHNICAL SPECS.
Anyway's this is a great value, do the math, and a great collection of 4K Bluray movies including the Dark Knight Series, etc. to have for years to come. I highly recommend you to purchase this 4K Movie Collection.
Amazon should make exceptions in the replacement policy for movie box sets such as these.
