The 2.39:1 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 using the Arri Alexa camera system and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. Picture quality is poor to mediocre with an under-performing color palette, though, fleshtones retain general naturalness. Contrast is a bit pushed under stylized lighting with mediocre black levels. The imagery generally is sharp in close-ups. The picture exhibits low-budget quality at the edge of acceptability as a digital production with a lot of "staring" facial expressions. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack has a forward-sounding dialogue track. Dialogue is intelligible but wanting in consistent spatial integration. Sound effects are punctuated with punchy bass for effect, energized with strong .1 LFE. The music recording is low-fi. Overall, a very undistinguished soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
