"This product's Editorial section adequately covers film synopses.
The ECHO BRIDGE DISASTER 4 FILM COLLECTOR'S SET is comprised of two double feature flipdiscs in separate keepcases that are housed in a thin paper cover. No booklets included, but liner notes for films are on back covers.
Clear transfers are in widescreen format. Stereo sound. "Crash Landing" has Dolby 5.1 surround and Spanish subtitles. There's only 5 chapter accesses for this one. The others provide 24 chapter jumps.
These three are from the "Nature Unleashed" series issued by indie GFT ENTERTAINMENT. They're mediocrities featuring unknown casts, and are the combined efforts of outfits based in Canada, UK and three Balkan nations.
