In "Justice," itís 1868 and the Civil War has been over for three years. An old, abandoned mine is now being transformed into a military stronghold by a corrupt mayor and a band of bloodthirsty outlaws hell-bent on reigniting the war. When a U.S. Marshall comes to town only to find out that his brother, the town priest, has been murdered, his search for the killer leads to an inevitable clash that becomes a life or death struggle for a much greater cause. (Gary Reber)

The 1.78:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally. The imagery is crisp and finely detailed throughout. Lines and edges are impressively sharp. Clarity is excellent. The color palette is perfectly natural, with warm and rich earthy hues with solid saturation. Highlight colors pop, including richly hued blue skies. Fleshtones are naturally hued as well. Contrast is excellent as well with deep, solid blacks and revealing shadow delineation. As noted, resolution is impressive with fine detail revealed in facial features, skin pores, beards, hair, clothing, and object texture. This is an impressively vivid picture with excellent color fidelity contrast. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audioô 5.1-channel soundtrack is well produced and natural sounding. Dialogue is prevalent and intelligible throughout, though, at times wanting in spatial integration. The orchestral score is rather constant throughout but as a background element. Fidelity is excellent throughout as well. Atmospherics are realistic as well as gunfire. Other sound effects, such as dynamite and gun power explosions, sound realistic as well. Deep bass sounds natural, though, sparse. This is a pleasing soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
