And while I haven’t seen all his work I still went into Pacific Rim with very low expectations because his flicks always don’t do it for me completely. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.

Audio Commentary by Guillermo del Toro – If you're a fan or del Toro or 'Pacific Rim' and don't have a problem understanding thick accents, then you'll definitely want to listen to this commentary.

There was a plot twist that I didn't really see coming and I liked the idea and realisation of a batch of new, young Jaeger pilots better than I thought I would. I'm not expecting a HUGE increase in quality for the last two, but they're such fantastic movies that I had to have them. When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. Ultra HD Blu-rays, this Digital HD code can be redeemed at VUDU for the UHD version, which features both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos and is, in my humble opinion, the finest looking streaming title available today. Nonetheless, I can't imagine many complaining, and in the end, the object-based mix delivers several demo-worthy moments.

Jaeger pilot Raleigh Becket [Charlie Hunnam] is introduced to us in this opening sequence, which sets the scene with the aforementioned exposition, gives you a spectacular battle scene in stormy weather, and a very visually arresting conclusion. As I said in my first reply to trekky76: the highlight detail IS all there on the UHD disc but the tone mapping in whatever TV can kill it. Sure, I know that this is "4K Ultra HD Blu-ray" and not "Oh look the shadow detail is a bit better Geoffy Vision™ Boo-ray" so this endless circlejerk about "fake 4K" will continue apace, but as someone who's done the upgrade dance soooo many times over the last 25 years I'll take my improvements where I can get 'em, be they spatial/temporal resolution, compression, colour, black levels, contrast, dynamic range etc etc etc. Spectacular and satisfying in equal measure, Pacific Rim might not quite tower over its mecha and monster counterparts, but it still has the edge over them.upon the stellar, previously released 2015 Blu-ray in every way: textural clarity, color, and black level perfection. You kinda have to ask yourself how much of that is Placebo Effect, since it's 2K footage you are seeing, just upscaled (it was shot in 5K, but the digital intermediate this is based on is 2K, as are the digital effects). Pacific Rim has a very "fake" HDR grade that takes the highlights visible in the SDR version and boosts them into hundreds, even thousands of nits (MaxCLL is like 2400 nits on this disc!

Taking more of an influence from the great Neon Genesis Evangelion franchise - no bad thing - this time around, the story picks up a decade after the events of the first movie, with the now-peaceful land rebuilding after the devastation of the preceding Kaiju assaults, but facing an all-new threat in the dual issues of a new remote-controlled Jaeger robot drone program (which is just begging to go wrong) and the appearance of a seemingly gone-rogue super-Jaeger. As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. VUDU has also announced support for HDR10, but I haven't heard specifics about when that will be available. Knight, who talks about the building of the sequel's story, the setting and production design, characters and performances. Indeed ultimately Uprising surprises slightly in its narrative turns, affording the unassuming viewer some nice little twists which carry the direction of the action - allowing for not only a little Mecha on Monster action like last time out, but also some Mecha on Mecha combat, which was never tackled in the first film.Unfortunately, the low-end surprisingly is not as aggressive or earth-shattering as expected, especially when compared to the first movie. I'm bumping this because I bought Pacific Rim HDR and a 4K Blu-ray player over the weekend and it's glorious. Keeping it simple, del Toro has won me over and rekindled my earliest childhood memories and I love him for it. Blade Runner 2049 and Ghost in the Shell are also really good looking movies, really pissed we don't get Valerian and a bunch of other movies in 4K HDR on Apple Movies where I live.

We meet the Jaeger program's coordinator (Rinko Kikuchi), two Kaiju scientists (Charlie Day and Burn Gorman), a local black market vendor (Ron Perlman), a Jaeger techie (Clifton Collins Jr. But despite this limitation, the image still looks very good because the movie utilized HDR well for eye-popping contrast, brightness, deep blacks and of course a wider potential color gamut with stronger saturation. The Importance of Mass and Scale (HD, 5:45) – This is the one I have been waiting to see…how they designed the huge scale of the film with all the intricate detail intact. Dolby Vision is the best version and even though the range itself is not expanded, there are all the highlight details from SDR version. The basic premise of the film introduces to us a future world where giant monsters known as Kaiju have risen from a portal underneath the Pacific Ocean, which results in a lot of catastrophic damage and casualties to say the very least.A dynamic and extensive mid-range exhibits excellent detailing and separation during the loudest, ear-piercing moments, allowing for distinct, audible clarity in the metal-on-metal mayhem and every bone-crunching punch while the hollow, reverberating roars of the Kaiju penetrate deep into the room. That tagline is indicative of just what mankind does as a response to build the only kind of weapon that has a chance against these monsters. Like I mentioned up above in the video section, the below audio score and critical comments of such are based solely upon my viewing of the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray presentation of Pacific Rim.
