I viewed the Blu-ray at a friend's house over the weekend, and the version included on that disc is the theatrical version (2.39:1 throughout).

I've seen at least 1 review of the Blu-ray that states the two IMAX sequences open up to 1.90:1 .

I just double-checked, and you are absolutely right. I must have been too immersed in the storytelling to have noticed. I was viewing strictly for entertainment and not with a reviewer's eye.

Thanks for checking - I should be getting a copy for Christmas and wanted to make sure there wasn't a different version out there.

Also - is it just my PC, or is the actual review page from Neil blank?

Was not impressed by the picture quality on this movie, looked soft, and didn't look like a typical 4k scan to me.
In addition to our esteemed reviewer Neil, Someone named RAH disagrees with you.


And as a 4k release, Paramount's home theater incarnation is perfect in every detail, inclusive of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

Fallout is the perfect answer to the oft-heard question, "why do we need 4k and the latest technology?"

I think I’ll go with Neil and RAH’s evaluation. No offense.

Unimpressed by this film, not as good as the previous two. Script and action sequences very derivative and with an ending we have seen many times before, not least in one of Moore's Bonds. I found the cinematography to be 'muddy' and not as crisp as the previous two films. Cruise should have stuck to his previous policy and used a different director.

There is nothing like having a minority opinion.;)

Slightly off topic but can anyone tell me if the blu ray has an Atmos soundtrack?

Thanks,

Kip

I watched this for the third time last night (first at a Dolby Cinema and second in 70'-wide IMAX) and the pacing is just fantastic. And last night I noticed especially how good the music by Lorne Balfe is. This may rank in my top two Mission: Impossible films (with Rogue Nation). Everything flows so beautifully and the action sequences are just spectacular! Tom Cruise may be a bit of a loon in real life but he still ranks in my top ten favorite actors of all time. The fact that he does all of his stunts may be hyperbole to some but when watching his films there is something authentic and extraordinary added to the suspense when you know that it's him
HALO jumping from an airplane, driving cars in spectacular chase scenes, leaping from building to building, and falling from a helicopter or piloting one!
