In an odd way, and as pure popcorn entertainment, it does.
The entire film is filled with dizzying, flying, swooping, fast-moving camera work, courtesy of Roberto De Angelis (Baby Driver), and those with optical disorders that might lead to nausea should take note.
As I was watching the film, a single thought kept returning – never could have been done in 3-strip Technicolor.
Much of it makes no sense, but who cares. It’s basically a classic “bank heist goes wrong” drama, with more damage and destruction to personal properly than ever plagued The Blues Brothers in Chicago.
I don’t recall any film in which so many police vehicles were trashed.
Photographed in 6 and 8k, (there were no 3-strip cameras on the shoot), and finished as a 4k DI, the resultant 4k UHD disc from Universal is magnificent in every detail.
The audio track, presented in Dolby Atmos, is not only huge, with thundering bass, but places sound beautifully in specific areas around one’s theater.
One very minor point that I found odd. They make a point, early on, of letting the audience know that an FBI agent, played by Keir O’Donnell is gay. I saw zero relevance in this detail to the story.
