Based on true events, "Richard Jewell" tells the story of the security guard who discovers a bomb at the 1996 Atlanta Games and takes swift, heroic action, saving countless lives. But in a turn of events, he becomes the FBI's number one suspect, vilified by the press and public alike. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the featuettes "The Making Of Richard Jewell" (HD 06:58) and "The Real Story Of Richard Jewell" (HD 06:39), upfront peviews and a Movies Anywhere digital code.

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 Mine and XT camera systems and sourced from a 4K master Digital Intermediate format. Picture quality is natural throughout. The production design is set in actual locations and conditions with excellent realism. The color palette is naturally hued throughout with realistic saturation. Hues are not exaggerated. Fleshtones are accurately rendered. Contrast is well balanced and realistic. Resolution is excellent, especially during close-ups of facial features, Richard's mustache and hair, clothing, objects and interiors. This is a very realistic presentation with excellent fidelity and production design. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with a realistic presentation of the atmospherics and sound effects associated with Centennial Park and the explosion, which sound realistic with non-exaggerated bass. Sound effects and atmospherics are effectively panned and presented with a wide soundstage and at times are directionalized in the surrounds. Surround energy envelops the soundfield and at times is aggressive. The music score is a generally background element and never really excites the soundfield, though, surround envelopment is effective. This is a very satisfying holosonic® soundtrack that delivers a very realistic experience. (Gary Reber)
