Contrary to some reports the Fifth Element blu-ray in this offer IS the remastered version. See below:

Two great movies - not available on blu-ray in this country - in one pack. Both films are region free. Works out at £6.39 each delivered. Pretty good I think.

Good deal. Not too keen on 5th Element - or would have ordered because Gattaca is excellent. Heat added.
#2
I like the 5th Element because it's totally bonkers.
#3
Dont know how this is hot, read the reviews, some guy has already said they send out the 2006 version which was remaster becuase it was so garabge, very cold from me.

Both movies are excellent, don't get me wrong in the review score. However, the Fifth Element Blu-ray is not the 2007 remastered version but instead the 2006 original discontinued version that High Def Digest rates as "One to avoid". The Gattaca Blu-ray comes as highly recommended (that's me, not High Def Digest) So if you don't care for spending $2.50 more for a barely (if that) better than DVD version of Fifth Element to be thrown in, then go for it. Just a fair warning, it doesn't do the movie justice. You can currently get the Remastered Version of Fifth Element and Gattaca movies for under $20 on here individually.

That guy got screwed. This package was released in June this year. The remastered edition has been out since 2007. He either was very unlucky, or he was mistaken. I did check on other boards and no one else has had his apparent problem.

I'm guessing they'll also come in the horrible US boxes (11mm instead of 14mm).
#7
Oh maybe he did I looked at it and seemed like the new cover.

But if it wasnt I would not want to take the risk as they are from the US and a pain to return

I just can't see Amazon shipping out the inferior release from 4 years ago.

Gattaca is a lousy film and unfortunatly, I missed the last Fifth Element offer on BD.
Not voting hot or cold because I'm sure there are folks out there that rate both movies.

Why has this been expired? The price is still the same and still in stock.
#14
Avoid, this includes the original Fifth Element release, not the remastered edition.
And even that edition has been bested by Danish blu release (Det Femte Element).

Are you sure? Sony discontinued the original in 2007 and offered a free replacement programme with the remastered version. This package was released in June this year.

The guy on Amazon everyone seems to be quoting has now changed his story slightly. He hasn't actually purchased this one, just been told it's not the remastered version. All the verified purchasers of package have given it either 4 or 5 stars out of 5. I'm more inclined to rely on the reviews of actual purchasers, than hearsay.

My point was more if you are going to go to the hassle of importing, you may as well import the Danish version.

OK, but your first point, that it doesn't include the remastered version was incorrect. Also, doesn't the Danish import cost about the same as both of these films?
