    Avengers Endgame is one of those Marvel Universe films, that seemed to do rather well theatrically.

    A bit complex, especially if one doesn't know the Marvel players and everything they've ever done, but entertaining nonetheless.

    As a 4k Blu-ray, it's a quality affair, even as up-rezzed from the 2k files. It's just fine.

    What isn't, fortunately only affects those who have:

    A. Not yet upgraded to 4k;

    B. Don't have Dolby Atmos.

    And that's the standard issue Blu-ray, which has been purposely crippled by removing the Dolby Atmos track.

    And for that reason, while I can recommend the 4k, I cannot recommend the Blu-ray, as it disallows the ability to future proof.

    One can choose to look at this from another perspective, which is that most theaters don't have Atmos, so it really doesn't matter.

    But one isn't suggesting the addition of an IMAX track here, and it's all doable.

    The problem seems to be purposefully giving those who don't buy 4k short shrift.

    Audio – 5 (Dolby Atmos)

    Pass / Fail – Pass
