The 1.85:1 1080p AVC 4K Ultra HD Dolby Vision/HDR10 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 Mini LF camera system and sourced from a 4K master Digital Intermediate format.The imagery is imaginative and stylized. Picture quality is excellent with effective lighting design that creates dimensional perspectives. Color fidelity exhibits well-balanced saturation with warm and rich hues. Flesh tones are naturally rendered, Color variations are nuanced. HDR contrast is excellent. Black levels are deep and shadow delineation is revealing. White levels are effectively illuminated to enhance natural contrast. Resolution is superb with fine detail exhibited throughout. Facial features are finely resolved in skin lines and pores, hair and beards. Clothing is finely textured as are objects, especially during closeups. This is a beautifully rendered picture that exhibits imaginative imagery throughout and is the new superior version. (Gary Reber)
The Dolby Atmos/Dolby TrueHD 7.1-channel soundtrack is quite dynamic in segments of both intense bursts and finely nuanced atmospherics. Sound effects are often explosive and there are wild vehicle chases and firepower from unusual guns. There are all manner of unusual sound effects that enhance each scene. At times, deep bass extends to sub-25 Hz frequencies, particularly during sound effects, mayhem and the orchestral/choral score. The score is a predominant sound element with a wide and deep soundstage and an expansive enveloping surround field that creates effective dimensionality. Dialogue is effectively spatially integrated and intelligible throughout.
The Immersive Sound element consists of an extension of the orchestral/choral score and the occasional sound effect such as a helicopter, voices, explosive sounds, wind, gunfire, police sirens, city din and other minor sounds. For such an action movie so much opportunity for height layer treatment was ignored.
This is a solid intensely exciting holosonic® ear-level soundtrack that is creatively dynamic and very dimensional. (Gary Reber)
