Here is our spoiler free (I know, but some people may not have seen them) review of the new 4K Ultra HD 4 Movie Collection of Indiana Jones.
Relive the unforgettable exploits of world-renowned, globetrotting hero Indiana Jones in spectacular 4K Ultra HD when the INDIANA JONES 4-MOVIE COLLECTION in a new 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray set and on Digital to Download & Keep from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Entertainment.
The cinematic classic that started it all – Raiders of the Lost Ark – celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, having first introduced audiences to the man with the hat on the 12th June, 1981. Forty years later, the legendary hero continues to captivate new generations of fans.
Now, for the first time ever, all four films are available together in 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision and HDR-10 for ultra-vivid picture quality and state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos audio. Each film has been meticulously remastered from 4K scans of the original negatives with extensive visual effects work done to ensure the most pristine and highest quality image. All picture work was approved by director Steven Spielberg.
In addition, all four films were remixed at Skywalker Sound under the supervision of legendary sound designer Ben Burtt to create the Dolby Atmos soundtracks. All original sound elements were used to achieve the fully immersive Dolby Atmos mixes while staying true to each film’s original creative intent.
The INDIANA JONES 4-MOVIE COLLECTION includes nine discs in the set. Each film is presented on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc with original theatrical trailers and on standard Blu-ray. The set includes a double sided map and an additional Blu-ray™ with seven hours of previously released bonus content as detailed below:

I am a huge fan of Indiana Jones and have been for most of my life. Whilst I didn’t see Raiders at the cinema (I can’t remember why now, it was a while ago), I did see the rest at the cinema. I remember going to see Temple of Doom about six or seven times and loving every minute of it. I think today it is still my favourite of all the films. I have to be honest, I wasn’t really impressed with Crystal Skull, and so I am hoping the new Indiana Jones movie, which is currently filming, will be better – it has to be!
Anyway, I’m not going to spoil any of the stories in case people haven’t seen them yet (I know I am very excited to show them all – well the first three – to my son when he is a little older).
This set is simply a must have if you are a fan of the movies – they are beautifully remastered in 4K and it makes you feel like you are back in the cinema. The inclusion of all the extras really adds to the value of the set.
So what are you waiting for, go get it now, you wont be disappointed.
Available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and on Digital to Download & Keep now.
