Free Guy is a wonderfully uplifting film, about a search for freedom in a world that doesn't exist.

An interesting idea, actually.

First time that I can recall.

Somehow, the characters are living inside a huge open world video game - a terrific idea - and the kicker is that like other analogue based films - think Bram Stoker's Dracula and What Dreams May Come - everything is real. Well, not exactly. It was shot digitally.

Shot on location in and around Boston,Massachusetts.

Hugely entertaining once one figures out what it's about, beautifully shot, with a great Dolby Atmos track.

Overall, an incredible concept, and finally something totally new to filmdom.

HDR works nicely with projection. We seem to be out of the "dark as a bat's groin" era.


A beautifully rendered 4k UHD release.

Image – 5 (HDR 10)

Audio – 5 (Dolby Atmos)

Pass / Fail – Pass

Plays nicely with projectors - Yes

Makes use of and works well in 4k - 5

Highly Recommended

Sadly it was shown in 3D but we won't get a Blu-ray 3D version here. I'll pass.

I really loved it. A very good film that also had good ideas. It’s been a while since there was a commercial Hollywood movie that was not only entertaining but also said something.
