Housed in a steelbook, as befits a king, Paramount’s new 4k Blu-ray of John Landis’ 1988 production, Coming to America
gives the impression that control had been given away in its entirety, and as Mr. Welles had opined, something to the point
that filmmaking is one of the greatest gifts one can give a child.
I seem to be out of sync with the rest of the world on this however, as the 39 million dollar production, garnered almost
300 million world-wide. Presumably simply upon people loving Mr. Murphy, and I get that.
More to the point of this review, this is a gorgeous 4k representation of the film. Highly resolved, with terrific color, nice grain
structure, and strangely, lovely black levels.
