In "Trauma Center," Lt. Wakes (Willis) is a vengeful police detective determined to solve the murders of his partner and an informant. Wakes joins forces with Madison (Whelan), a witness injured during the shootings, after the killers pursue her across the abandoned floor of a hospital and confirm Wakes' worst fears: the two men are actually corrupt vice cops covering up a crime.

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 and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture's color palette appears naturally hued with saturated primes. The production design plays on lighting effects that enhance the visual impact. Fleshtones are naturally rendered. Contrast is well balanced with good shadow delineation and deep blacks. Resolution is revealing of fine detail, especially in close-ups of facial features such as skin pores, lines, beards and hair. Object textures and clothing also exhibit detail. Overall, this is a satisfying picture. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is comprised of virtually constant brooding music that serves as an atmospheric background sound element, raising in volume to heighten the suspense. Sound effects are heightened with bass energy, such as gunfire and door slams, among other sound effects. Dialogue is generally well integrated spatially. Surround energy is pretty constant with the music. This is a serviceable soundtrack that effectively carries the story. (Gary Reber)
