Although historically, not totally factual, I cannot imagine even the most ardent history buffs not taking a liking to Joe Wright’s take on the early days of Sir Winston Churchill’s role as British Prime Minister during the early days of WWII.
Gary Oldman’s performance is mesmerizing, and the film, as a whole, is a superior entertainment.
Universal’s Blu-ray, presumably based upon the 2k data files is perfect in every regard, as it should be.
Dolby Atmos rounds out the presentation nicely.
One of the finest films of 2017.
For those who may not have read his tomes on the Second World War, Sir Winston’s works are highly suggested.
Up-rezzed, in projection to 4k, imagery holds up nicely. No reason for a 4k disc, as even in an uprez, Mr. Oldman’s makeup begins to show its seams in some closeups.
