A robber attacks a married couple, killing the woman and leaving the man for dead. As he convalesces, the man struggles to overcome amnesia through the chaos of memory loss induced by his injuries. Finding himself within rag-tag moments of his past, he attempts to remember the vital details and solve his wife's murder.
Crime never sleeps. Neither does Will Dormer (Al Pacino), a veteran LAPD homicide detective sent north to Alaska to head a murder case. There his investigation is disrupted by an ever-shining midnight sun that wreaks sleep-depriving havoc on his body clock and brings Dormer's shady, guilt-plagued past into the light of day.
Batman Begins explores the origins of the Batman legend and the Dark Knight's emergence as a force for good in Gotham. In the wake of his parents' murder, disillusioned industrial heir Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) travels the world seeking the means to fight injustice and turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. He returns to Gotham and unveils his alter-ego: Batman, a masked crusader who uses his strength, intellect and an array of high tech deceptions to fight the sinister forces that threaten the city.
The Dark Knight:
The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lt. Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves effective, but soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces Batman closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.
Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in this sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the world of dreams. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the best there is at extraction: stealing valuable secrets inside the subconscious during the mind's vulnerable dream state. His skill has made him a coveted player in industrial espionage but also has made him a fugitive and cost him dearly. Now he may get a second chance if he can do the impossible: inception, planting an idea rather than stealing one. If they succeed, Cobb and his team could pull off the perfect crime. But no planning or expertise can prepare them for a dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy only Cobb could have seen coming.

When I bought the item, it was sold by Amazon and I paid $24.99 for it, a complete bargain.
In the back of "The Dark Knight" blu-ray disc cover, where the movie info is displayed, there's a great artwork: some words look as if they were scratched by the Joker, changing the meaning with the phrases, so it looks like Batman is the villain. It's a tiny detail, but so fun to notice and have it.
The stock photos are good. I'd choose different movie frames to print, but these ones are OK.
There's two tiny things I didn't like: the disc covers are thinner, about 80% of the size of a regular DVD/Blu-ray disc cover. Of course, this is so you can have 5 discs + stock photos + booklet inside one box and save space, but, personally, I didn't like it. And the booklet with photos actually come inside the box, making it much smaller than I thought it was. These two things, I think, are so personal I couldn't lower the rate objectively. It is a 5-star product. The good stuff absolutely outweight these tiny details.
I ordered it from Brazil, and it arrived in less than 2 weeks.
For portuguese-speakers: all the movies have portuguese subtitles, except for Memento. None of them are dubbed in portuguese (thank God).
The set also comes with a little booklet with stills from the movies. They are about postcard size and honestly, it's nothing special.
All five films are worth owning and all look excellent on bluray.
Even better is that they all have decent extras with them. I don't know whether some individual special additions have some extras that these are missing (I know Memento does at least), but these are not stripped down versions.
I was fortunate to grab this when it was on sale and was only like $20. Even at the price now, for these five films it is definitely a great set.
Anyway, you get 5 movies, all BluRay, and a hardcover booklet with some info and pics about all the movies, and a envelope with high quality card stocks with the same pictures found in the booklet.
In terms of packaging, it does its job. The extra booklet and cards are nice but nothing but extras. (Note: this does feature 8 dollars towards movie tickets for The Dark Knight Rises. Only works at participating theaters but all Santikos and Regal theatres should work.)
Overall, an amazing value for some really good movies.
Only downsides is that The Prestige wouldve been better instead of Insomnia, and Batman fans will unfortunately have to buy the inevitable Dark Knight Trilogy set.
