Fox’s new 4k Blu-ray of Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express, is a perfect example of the fact that quality of image and sound are of supreme importance.
I attempted to view the film a couple of months ago on a DVD screener, and gave up after about twenty minutes, resolved to the belief that the film was a bore, but also desirous of seeing how the film, which originated as 65/5, might play more highly resolved.
The answer is amazingly well.
With true 4k imagery, along with a layer of delicately controlled HDR, and a booming Dolby Atmos track, the film will grab your attention, and never let go.
As one of the true 4k releases in 4k, the film is magnificent eye-candy. An extremely highly resolved image, that draws you in.
Great cast, terrific film, beautifully photographed — did I mention mention 65mm origination?
Don’t yet have 4k gear?
Future proof. This is way to purchase the film.
It’s an absolutely magnificent release, with a myriad of extras, fit for a cinephile.
