Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
These three suspenseful, action-packed shoot-'em-ups -- the first of which revitalized Bruce Willis's flagging career and inspired countless imitations -- arrive in a beautifully packaged box set loaded with supplemental features. The 1985 original, Die Hard, pits hard-boiled New York cop Willis against terrorist Alan Rickman, whose operatives infiltrate a Los Angeles office building and hold one company's employees hostage -- including ...

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
These three suspenseful, action-packed shoot-'em-ups -- the first of which revitalized Bruce Willis's flagging career and inspired countless imitations -- arrive in a beautifully packaged box set loaded with supplemental features. The 1985 original, Die Hard, pits hard-boiled New York cop Willis against terrorist Alan Rickman, whose operatives infiltrate a Los Angeles office building and hold one company's employees hostage -- including Willis's wife, Bonnie Bedelia. The visual and editorial techniques employed in this slam-bang thriller by director John McTiernan The Hunt for Red October have since been emulated -- if rarely matched -- by innumerable filmmakers. One of the more talented, Renny Harlin Cliffhanger, directed Die Hard 2 1990, which creates similarly claustrophobic tension by placing its hostages aboard a hijacked plane headed for Washington's Dulles Airport. Harlin upped the ante by making the sequel's action even more violent, but his effort was topped by the returning McTiernan in 1995's Die Hard with a Vengeance. The third film sacrifices logic for roller-coaster thrills and gives Willis a formidable costar in Samuel L. Jackson, who helps him defeat mad bomber Jeremy Irons in the streets of New York. All three films are elaborately mounted and breathlessly paced, and the intricacies of the productions are explored in the DVD supplements. Die Hard, for example, includes a detailed commentary by special-effects maestro Richard Endlund, along with a featurette chronicling the film's postproduction phase, deleted scenes, bloopers, and DVD-ROM content. Part Two offers a commentary by Harlan in addition to an HBO "making-of" featurette, four deleted scenes, vignettes showing the preparation and execution of stunts, and side-by-side comparisons of composite effects shots. The third film is accompanied by a McTiernan commentary, special production featurettes that appeared on CBS and HBO, an alternate ending, more stunt work studies, and storyboarded sequences. These are the definitive home-video versions of these popular "popcorn" movies, and they belongs in every significant DVD collection.

    ''Ultimate'' is the truly best word to descibe this!

    To start off, there isn't a 6-Star rating, or I would be chosing that. For you see, The ''Die Hard'' series started it's own kind of movie genre. And that deserves the most credit it can get. The series uses its high octane action, along with its wittiness (especially shown in my favorite of the three ''Die Hard: With A Vengeance''). It can probably be descibed as going on a 6-hour roller coaster ride, without a chance to take a full breath of air. As for the DVD specs, the video quality is excellent, a wicked inprovement from the original, non-special edition DVD Collection. This new DVD Collection takes you even further into a true movie expreience by adding an anamorphic video transfer. The audio, however, is flawless. Especially with a new DTS track. You honestly feel like you're ''in the movie''. As far as extras go, Fox truly created a satisfying ''Special Edition'' of each film! Extras spew from the discs, exploding onto the screen, with non-stop entertainment. . . almost as much as the movie brings. . . okay, that was too far. Anyhow, this is truly a DVD Collection to put on your shelf. It should be on everyone's shelf. Okay, do this: Just click on the ''Add to Cart'' icon beside the picture and I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Yippee-Ki-Yay. . .
