    For once, I agree with the publicity sizzle.

    "One hell of a ride!" - Joey Nolfi, Entertainment Weekly

    While you'll learn little about world affairs, three-toed tree sloths, or famous people, what you do receive with the new XXX is 106 minutes of slam-bang, well choreographed stunts and excitement.

    All brought to you by Paramount in a 4k up-rez from 2k files and Dolby Atmos, with bullets and shell casings flying everywhere.

    Terrific entertainment, and far more enjoyable than I had surmised.

    Cool! I have this on pre-order and that is what I would have expected. I would like for them to release the original in 4K as well.

    Sigh, I will probably regret it when I get an Atmos setup, but I think I'm going with the 3D BD.

    No way I'm buying it twice.

    Watched the disc tonight. Total cheese fest, but it was fun and had a lot of actors I like. PQ was excellent, and there is a lot of good LFE.

    I agree! It was a total popcorn flick.

    I hate to admit this, but I preordered it during Target's "Buy 2, get 1 free" sale. I haven't watch it yet, but plan to do so in the near future.
