The Bourne Trilogy (Universal DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: B-     Extras: C+/B-/C+     Films: C+/B-/C+



The Jason Bourne films are back in another DVD box set, though a companion Blu-ray set is not due yet, we have this collection for those who do not want to buy them separately.  Here is our coverage of the trilogy in separate editions in the now-defunct HD-DVD format as follows:


Identity (2002)



Supremacy (2004)



Ultimatum (2007)




They all have the same extras as these DVDs save the interactivity that format had over the 11+ year old DVD format.  The anamorphically enhanced 2.35 X 1 image on all the discs are showing their age with limited picture quality, with the third even looking weaker than the DVD side of the HD-DVD/DVD Combo edition.  All have Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes that are lively, but no match for the newer, better codecs like DTS HD MA and Dolby TrueHD, though those HD-DVDs sometimes only had pumped up Dolby Digital Plus.


A fourth film is now on the way with a writer that I am not ecstatic about, but this is just pre-production, so we’ll see where this goes.  Until then, here is what we would think is the last DVD set of the trilogy.
