The design here is compact and neat. There is an oversized blu ray keep case that holds all 7 discs. The discs are in back to back holders.
This is definitely the best quality we have ever gotten. There is a question as to weather or not this is the best possible transfer we could get, but it is very difficult to judge something on conjecture. Anyway, the aspect ratio is 1.85:1 with a 1080p/mpeg2 transfer. This is the same remastering as the 2006 blu ray and we may not get a better version for a long time.
While watching the movie it looks very good, but there is significant noise on the screen at pints which can be distracting. This definitely comes from the movie being an older print but it is far less noticing e when looking the outdoor scenes.
The transfer here is AVC-encode. The image is far nicer than you have ever gotten before but thee is still some noise from the original content. I do not know why but the final fight scene seems to pop more than the rest of the movie. The scenes becomes a tad sharper somehow.
This transfer is beautiful. It doesn't blow the first two away but it is definitely a nicer clearer print. This movie does showcase what Blu Ray can do for you. There is so much detail in faces and on skin that it really helps you want to watch this version. Dark scenes have some shadowing issues but this is still a very nice transfer.
Again we have a 1080p/AVC encode and boy does it look special. This movie in blu-ray is a treat. Faces look incredible, everything shines and colors look absolutely fantastic. This asks you to take notice. There is very little static from the source through the movie but the contrast is incredible. The black areas are as black as they are going to get. This movie showcases what you are missing out by just watching the movie on DVD.
I removed a star in my review because they included this film. Kidding! Five is not the most popular Rocky movie out there, though to tell you the truth I don't hate it. Alright and now I'm back. AVC-encoded yet again but somehow we have a step back in quality.
The picture is a bit darker than previous movies but there is a lot less noise present.
Thus is the same transfer as the 2007 film blu ray release. This is the best of all of the discs but I guess that is to be expected when a few decades pass. Finally a Rocky movie with no noise and no artifacts.
Just two extras I found to be notable that increased my enjoyment of this product
Feeling strong now game. This is Very similar to
DVD scene-it and it is actually fun to mess around with
In The Ring- making of documentary. This is a fantastic three part making of that is 75 minutes long. Part one is all about what it was like to film the movie in 28 days while parts 2 and 3 focus on the loves and motivations of the actors other than Sylvester Stalone.
So finally if you like these movies and you are interested I hope you can use this as a quite for you to judge if you want to see this movie. There are many conflicting reports relating to weather or not the quality on these blu-rays are what you are expecting so I hope I have been able to clear things up a bit to allow you to make your own decision.
It has been brought to my attention that'll review is now under the heading of a slightly different product that may have higher quality.

Spanish: Dolby Digital Mono
French: DTS 5.1
Spanish: DTS 5.1
German: DTS 5.1
Italian: DTS 5.1

Japanese: DTS-HD Master Audio Mono
For housing 7 discs, I was impressed with how well the packing kept everything safe and protected without being bulky. Other editions with these many blu-rays tend to be more like a large box set so this saves space and holds an impressive amount of content.
The transfers for all of these films are definitely the best we have seen thus far. I am sure with the evolution of 4K HD there will be a supreme edition on the horizon. But in all honestly, this collection and the transfer quality is nothing to sneeze at.
He couldn't believe I had never seen it, but now I've seen them a few times and can even quote it! Great films, very inspirational.
As for the actual product, decent packaging There is one case that holds all of the discs and a little plastic box that holds the case with the picture of Rocky on the front. I have it on my movie shelf and love when people notice it. Very good price for the full set.
I've had issues with a couple of the discs not being read by my PS3. I just eject them and reinsert them a couple times and then it plays. This doesn't always happen and it's not with all of the discs, just 2 of them. They all have great picture quality in my opinion, and the noise during the first Rocky isn't loud enough to distract me. I hardly noticed it.
All in all, I'm happy with my purchase and glad to have added this to my collection.
I assume anyone that is going to purchase this has seen them all so no need to do an in depth review of each movie. The product showed up on time and factory wrapped as promised. The extras alone would have been worth the $20.00 price tag (some of them were silly or a waste of time,but the documentary was very enjoyable) The quality of Rocky was surprising good. I have only watched all of Rocky and watche Rocky II but nothing in those first leads me to believe this is nothing short of a 5 star purchase
