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. Everything appears natural in appearance and real. Color fidelity is generally natural with a saturated edge. Hues at times are bright and strong. Fleshtones are varied throughout the family and are natural in appearance. Contrast is well balanced. Blacks are deep and shadows are natural and revealing. This is a dark-looking picture and should be viewed in a dark home theatre setting. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack delivers an intense and powerful bass experience that will challenge one's subwoofer system with frequencies below 25 Hz. The unusual music score aggressively energizes the entire soundfield. The opening scene pulsates with bass intensity. Sound effects are strong and at times directionalized around the soundfield. Atmospherics sound realistic within the Sinclair mansion. Dialogue is clear but unrealistic ADR produced with very poor spatial integration and at times is drowned out almost by the intense music. The aggressive holosonic® surround and deep bass make this an engaging soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
