As a whole, a good movie download service, with quality movie files and solid download speeds. Their library of titles could be more current, as is the case with all flat-fee movie download sites, but they offer an extensive selection of titles nonetheless. Couple that with a 60-day money-back guarantee, and you have a service worth checking out.

Quality: 4 out of 5 stars
One of the most important factors in a movie download is the quality of the file you get. It’s no fun watching a movie if the picture and audio aren’t clear and crisp.
With that in mind, we were pleased with the quality of the files from fullmovies.com. The picture was clear and of decent resolution. There was no static or image quality issues, and the video was as smooth as can be expected from a download service. Also, the sound was clear, with no audible problems.
Of course, as the name of the site implies, these are all full-length movies. No segments to join or excerpts to sift through, as you often see with movies downloaded via P2P software. And, the files we tested were all virus and malware-free.
The 4 instead of 5-star rating for quality comes from the fact that there was no option for high definition versions of the movie downloads, which would have been nice. However, all the files we tested were of sufficient quality for standard definition TVs, computer monitors and pretty much any handheld device you can imagine.
Speed: 4 out of 5 stars
No one wants to wait hours to download movies. Nor do you want to start a download, only to have to stop and restart it multiple times because your connection has been dropped, or the server becomes unavailable.
With fullmovies.com, there were no such issues. This is one area where this service shined. Every time we connected to their servers, the speeds were fast and steady. We never had any issues with their servers being full, the number of connections maxed. And, movies download smoothly and quickly, with most movies fully downloaded in under an hour.
Selection: 2.5 out of 5 stars
What good is a movie download service subscription if there aren’t many movies to choose from? When picking a movie download site, you want to make sure you get what you’re paying for, just like anything else.
The thing to keep in mind with flat-fee movie sites is, they don’t get access to the movie until after it is out of the theater, after it’s been on the pay cable networks, and after it’s been out on DVD for some time. None of them do. So, if you expect to see the same selection as what’s currently in your local theater, you will be disappointed. However, the selection at fullmovies.com is comparable to that of any other flat-fee movie download site. They have a wide selection of movies to choose from, new and old, across many genres.
Price: 4 out of 5 stars
Cost… the prime motivating factor for many people when considering whether to join a movie download service. Here’s an area where fullmovies.com does pretty well. At the time of this review, they offer 3 different payment options:
- Silver: 1-month @ $29.95
- Gold: 3-month @ $34.95
- Platinum: 1-year @ $39.95
All 3 levels include unlimited downloading of movies, and the movie files are yours to keep, to burn to DVD if you choose, and to watch whenever and however you like. They also offer a full 60-day money back guarantee, so you don’t have much to lose. Given the money back guarantee, we can’t imagine why anyone would opt for anything other than the 1-year subscription. If you can get your money back if you’re unsatisfied, why not go for the best value, right? Anyway, the fullmovies.com price point, coupled with the money back guarantee is pretty tough to beat.
Movie Download How To Bottom Line on Fullmovies.com:
As with any flat-fee movie download site, the selection is not going to be as up to date as what you see in the theater or on pay-per-movie services like iTunes. Because of the way the movie industry works, it simply can’t be. And, in that regard, fullmovies.com is no exception. But, with realistic expectations in mind, if you’re looking for a movie download site with a decent selection, quality files, good download speeds, a cheap price and a full 60-day money back guarantee, check out fullmovies.com.
