To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As others have said - the codes were expired. I only buy blu rays with UV codes because so many of my disks get destroyed by the kids.
Really not impressed on the UV code expiry thing - it's happened with movies I've bought from Amazon before. Why would you ever have an expiry date? And Amazon, why would you sell this without telling customers that this was the case?
So let me get this straight - you create a UV system so people can buy movies and counter the online illegal copying threat, and you reward my legal intention and honesty by selling goods with expired codes? It's bad customer karma, that's what it is. Sort it out. I won't tell you again.
Bit of shame because for the low price I paid, these are great movies - Hot Fuzz especially is awesome and entertaining - absolutely love it. Really original story and a boatload of fun.
I bought this because I enjoyed Hot Fuzz. My daughter recommended Shaun of the Dead which was good, not great. However, I was very disappointed in World's End. It is average because Hot Fuzz is great comedy spoof, Shaun of the Dead is merely good, and World's End is poor.
I'll put this way. I wanted the trilogy as a gift. short story: The movies are great, I love Simon and Nick. Prime shipping, not so much. Ordered on July 22nd. After purchase: Estimated delivery Aug 10th through the 20th. Contacted Amazon about the PRIME issue. Receive the discs in nine days. Gotta love PRIME.
Two of the movies The World's End and Hot Fuzz were not secured in the DVD case so the DVDs have scratches and the DVD case is damaged. Hoping DVDs still work properly since I haven't tried to watch him yet since I just open the package. Brought the movie new not used and will be upset it they don't work like it should.
