BEWARE: Only the first movie is Region Free. The second movie is Region B ONLY!!!
December 25, 2016
This review if for the Double Pack containing two movies on blu-ray: (1) National Treasure and (2) National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets. My purchase was sold by "CG Movies and Games" and fulfilled by Amazon.com. My family loves these movies and both blu-rays worked well.
However there is a serious problem with this particular Double Pack product which other buyers have also noted. The Amazon ad states the "Region" for this Double Pack is "All regions" but this is ONLY true for the first movie. The second movies is "Region B" only. This means that U.S. "Region A" blu-ray players will NOT be able to play the second movie. Amazon needs to update the description very badly.
I'm rating this product one star (the lowest I can) because of the grievous error. North American buyers should beware of this product unless they have a blu-ray player that can play "Region B" discs. If this product was correctly labeled, I would rate it five stars---at US$9.99 with free shipping, it is an excellent value.
There is a way around this problem if you use a PC to play your blu-ray movies. There is a Windows software product called "AnyDVD HD" from RedFox that can allow you to view movies from any region on a Windows PC. The program is not, itself, a media player so you will still need a blu-ray player program like PowerDVD Ultra from CyberLink. Running AnyDVD HD will make your DVDs and blu-ray discs appear to be region free so you can view them with your Windows PC and PowerDVD Ultra regardless of the region code of your PC's blu-ray drive.
