Overview

This box set includes four features directed by Wolfgang Petersen, whose work combines a strong sense of character and nuanced storytelling with a crowd-pleasing knack for action and suspense. The films included are Das Boot, Petersen's breakthrough feature, which depicts a struggle for survival aboard a German submarine during World War II; Air Force One, which stars Harrison Ford as the President of the United States, forced to do battle against terrorists to save his family; In the Line of Fire, starring Clint Eastwood as a secret service agent trying to protect the President against an intelligent but unstable assassin; and The Perfect Storm, which features George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg in a fact-based tale of a fishing boat tossed into the middle of one of the most destructive storms at sea on record.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Widely respected for his gripping, meticulously crafted thrillers, German-born Wolfgang Petersen cut his directorial eyeteeth on stage productions and TV shows before moving into the feature-film arena in 1973. His best-known films share a common theme: Steadfast men expend Herculean efforts to grapple with dangerous situations that unfold in claustrophobic surroundings. Petersen's protagonists are usually flawed in some way, but they invariably display resourcefulness and determination in the face of overwhelming odds. In Das Boot (The Boat), Petersen's internationally acclaimed 1981 film, U-boat commander Jurgen Prochnow and his 41 crewmen struggle to complete a dangerous mission during the early days of World War II. In the Line of Fire stars Clint Eastwood as an aging secret-service agent who questions his ability to protect the president from über-assassin John Malkovich. Another chief executive is imperiled, along with his family and staff, in Air Force One, which pits idealistic Commander-in-Chief Harrison Ford against ruthless terrorist Gary Oldman within the confines of the First Plane. The most recent entry, The Perfect Storm, finds fishing-boat captain George Clooney and his motley crew trapped at sea by a monster hurricane. Petersen discusses his directorial philosophy in detailed commentaries accompanying these films, which are all presented in their original widescreen formats with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. Other extras include photo galleries, behind-the-scenes footage, deleted scenes, and storyboards. The Perfect Storm disc also includes DVD-ROM content and web access.
