This X-Men trilogy blue ray pack is basically an updating and refreshing of the original X-Men and it's two sequels into one complete and ultimate Bluray collection. It is NOT like the three movie dvd collection which was nothing more than the original movies shoved into a cardboard sleeve; rather this is a BD redo with new packaging and a ton of extras. It is more akin to the Star Wars or Lord of the Rings ultimate collections in style and completeness!

Each of the three movies comes in it's own individual bluray case and each movie consists of three discs. One for the movie, one for all the extensive extras and one as a digital copy. (Nine discs in all.) Which are then housed in a standard glossy cardboard outer case. It makes for a very impressive collection.

All three movies are in a widescreen format; 2.35:1 for X-Men and 2.40:1 for United and Last Stand and all are on 50 GB dual layer discs for maximum visual clarity. All three look superb!

In audio, X-Men and X-Men United have a full English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track and X-Men The Last Stand ups this to a full DTS-HD 6.1 track! In addition all three movies have full Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese. Nobody gets short-changed on the audio. Plus there are even subtitle tracks for Korean, Cantonese and Mandarin as well. I didn't bother listening to the other tracks but the English DTS-HD tracks are very impressive. X-Men has never sounded so good.

Each movie comes with it's own separate extras discs which contain numerous documentaries on everything from the history of the X-Men to theatrical trailers. There are too many for me to list. But it's very extensive.

As for the digital copy discs, they are now expired. However, it has been reported that you can go to the main website and download new updated digital copy codes. I haven't tried this, but reports are that it does work quite well.

So bottom line, if you want the ultimate X-Men trilogy collection with nothing left out; this is the set to buy. It has everything you could possibly want, the best visuals and the best audio available and for each individual movie; doesn't cost any more than a plain bargin-bin no extra's DVD would. So if X-Men is your interest, then this is pretty much a no-brainer!

UPDATE - July 30, 2013 - There have been some reports (unconfirmed) that newer boxsets may or may not have the digital copy discs included in the package. Instead you may have to go to the studio's website and use your activation code to download them instead! Everything else appears to be the same.

Love the movies, but I thought this was sort of a single DVD case with all 3 movies... Like TV series come in. It's not. It's just 3 separate DVD cases in a box. Which is nice, but I was trying to cut down my shelf space.

The films are a lot of fun, 4/5 but I won't go into that here. I just ordered this boxset, however in trying to install the digital copies into iTunes, only the second film's code has worked - time to contact support. Be warned.

- Update - After emailing Amazon and Fox Digital I got got a resolution on the Digital copies. Still not ideal that it didn't work from the get go, but good customer service on both accounts. Updating the rating to 4/5 for films and offering based on current value of $12.99 and minus for the bit of hassle.

2 great movies (And 1 ok one) for a pretty damn good price. The packaging is good, not just blank dvds but have their graphics etc. Picture and sound is very good.

I enjoyed the whole set, and the extras are great. For the 3rd movie, which is not as good as the first 2, the extras actually make watching the movie better.

All three original X-men movies on Bluray for 18 bucks. Good Deal. The quality is decent and the extras were actually fun if not widely varied.
