Collection of five films starring Harrison Ford. '42' (2013) is a biographical drama about African-American baseball player Jackie Robinson, here portrayed by Chadwick Boseman. In 1945, having been spotted by a scout, Robinson is signed by Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey (Ford) and becomes the first black man to play in the Major League. Despite his talent, Robinson is met with opposition, even from his fellow players, because of his race. As he tries to keep his own frustrations in check, he excels in his sport and gradually receives the recognition he deserves. In 'Firewall' (2006) Ford stars as Jack Stanfield, an average family man in Seattle who heads up the hi-tech security team at his local bank. But following a seemingly trivial case of identity theft, Jack's life is turned upside down when his wife (Virginia Madsen) and two children are kidnapped. The ransom is $100 million which the kidnappers, led by Bill Cox (Paul Bettany), want Jack to obtain for them via his expert computer skills. Initially compliant, Jack is soon irked by Cox and his cronies to the point where he decides to risk everything to get his family back and bring the bad guys to justice. In 'Frantic' (1988) American doctor Richard Walker (Ford) checks into a Paris hotel with his wife Sondra (Betty Buckley) to attend a conference and celebrate their wedding anniversary. However, shortly after arriving at the hotel Sondra disappears and soon Richard is plunged into a nightmare kidnap scenario, roaming the streets of Paris trying to find a lead in the search for his missing wife. His only clue comes in the form of drugged-up young punk Michelle (Emmanuelle Seigner). In 'Presumed Innocent' (1990) Ford plays Rusty Sabich, an attorney who finds himself charged with murder. The victim (Greta Scacchi) was a colleague of his with whom he had a brief but intense affair and Rusty finds himself in need of a defence lawyer. In 'The Fugitive' (1993), based on the 1960s American television series, eminent Chicago surgeon Dr Richard Kimble (Ford), married to wealthy heiress Helen (Sela Ward), arrives home one night to find his wife murdered and a one-armed man in his house. Due to incriminating evidence and prime motivation, Kimble is wrongly convicted for murder. However, on his way to death row he is involved in a spectacular train crash that precipitates his escape. Kimble then strives to prove his innocence whilst staying one step ahead of the dogged US Marshal Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones).

Great
Always love The Fugitive. The way the city is shown gives it so much charm.
What I want out of each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your fugitive's name is Dr. Richard Kimble.

Your fugitive's name is Dr. Richard Kimble.

You could read the description.

You could click 'get deal'.

All the information you require is there.
Why have I only seen the Fugitive from these? Got to be worth ordering!

Thanks for posting but folks should take note of the AV quality of these films. I haven't looked into all five, because my first search rendered looking any further a moot point. This box set was released in 2015, and I wanted to make sure that The Fugitive was the remastered 2013 version with DTS-HD audio, and not the poor quality 2006 release with Dolby Digital audio. The remastered version hasn't been released in UK separately, so I was already skeptical. Well, low and behold, if you look at the back of the boxset, The Fugitive is the poor 14-year-old version from 2006 with Dolby Digital audio. I see this happening quite a lot with studio boxsets, where they get a couple of good films, a couple of okay films and a "stocking filler" film - ahem Firewall ahem - and get the stockpiled discs for all of them and then stuff them in a box and slap a tag on it.

All of the other films could be the best versions and 5/5 quality for all I know, I haven't looked further, but if they're choosing to use an old, poor-quality version of the best film in the boxset - that Warner Bros themselves has since remastered - then for me that's a statement of quality and conduct.

Anyway, just my personal, humble tuppenceworth for anyone to keep in mind if they choose to. I'll pass.
Hmm. Only one great film therei think...

So where do I buy the remastered version of Fugitive?

Not sure if you’re genuinely curious, or if it’s a backlash comment to “put me in my place”. I’ll be optimistic and assume the first. You can look online, like I said I don’t think the remastered version has been released in the UK yet. But just because it’s not available in UK yet, it doesn’t make it great value. The remastered version will eventually hit the UK, and more than likely a 4K release too. So unless you’ve got a desperate Harrison Ford itch, I’d personally pass.

It isn't hat hard really though is it? Once you see that the first film has the date next to it in brackets you can pretty much skim it and find the others in seconds.

I was honestly curious. UK always seems to get shafted with some releases. If the remaster has been available in the US since 2013 then it’s very disappointing that it still hasn’t surfaced in the UK. I may just have to go the iTunes route via my US account...
I'd never even heard of 42 but it gets a good IMDB rating. It's also on Amazon Prime, so now in my watchlist.
I'll pass on the boxset, but thanks for the info OP.

Ahh fair shout. And yes, I definitely agree with you there, that's why I always have a look to see the different releases and AV reviews. There's so many times that the US get the new, better remasters and they leave the UK with the crappy old ones for years, or indefinitely. And when they put the old release into a new boxset, or a shiny steelbook, they're almost just completely mocking buyers. It's terrible practice imho, and whilst I appreciate that they're ultimately going to do what's easiest and best for their bottom line, I'm certainly not going to buy into it.

The UK really is just an afterthought for Hollywood. I’ve picked this up anyway as I don’t have any of these..can’t complain at a couple quid per movie.

Definitely agree there. I was on the fence to be honest, because I don’t have any of the movies, but with me writing off firewall I chalked it down as £3 per movie. But then I knew I’d always want the remastered or 4K version of the fugitive down the line, so it then became £4 per movie long-term. I think I’d bite if I saw it used online or at a car boot sale for £5-8, but at this price it isn’t for me. Everyone to their own.

Only The Fugitive and Firewall have had UK bluray releases separately so this is the only way to get 42 (only released separately on DVD last year), Frantic and Presumed Innocent.

And 42 and Presumed Innocent on bluray in the UK,

Yeah I'm not sure what has happened there. Postage was cheap but I guess during these times they are only using super fast (expensive) shipping. But once things die down it will be not so bad.
