The video sector
But how does this new Home Video proposal behave from a video point of view? What kind of experience is it able to offer the viewer? The answer is one: wonderful! The film, which we remind you was shot with the Arri Alexa shooting system, enjoys a mastering job of the highest level, effectively bringing excellent quality to 2160p resolution. Also thanks to the presence of HEVC H.265 encoding, the definition that can be observed on the screen is undoubtedly a reference. The images are sharp and every detail is clearly visible. We assure you that seeing the two protagonists so well characterized is really a pleasure for the eyes! However, this extreme technological push shows its side every once in a while, with very small digital artifacts. Let me be clear, this statement is the result of a more than meticulous observation during the review phase, but these are decidedly negligible elements during normal vision. In fact, the video is practically perfect. If then the sharpness is accompanied by what is the management of the color sector, then lunch is served.
Godzilla Vs Kong in 4K UHD boasts the presence of Dolby Vision which we guarantee to do its job excellently. The colors are dense and have a surprisingly large range, even in the darkest scenes where their dominance is certainly a secondary element. Overall, the photographic result of Ben Seresin’s work is nothing short of dynamic. In short, the video sector of Godzilla Vs Kong in 4K UHD we are sure will be able to give you great satisfaction.
The audio compartment
After analyzing the video sector of the feature film, let’s now move on to the audio sector, which we anticipate has also highly satisfied us! In fact, this edition boasts the presence of a nothing short of phenomenal Dolby Atoms track, able to make your multi-channel system tremble like only two titans could do. The stage offered is extremely wide and is the result of a mix of elements that blend in unison like a perfectly balanced orchestra. The audio track is in fact capable of bringing the maximum expression of the smallest details as well as literally making your home environment explode. If your multi-channel system can handle this encoding, and has enough watts to deliver, be prepared to be swept up in a hurricane ready to make you feel even the lowest frequencies pass your bodies. The low range will drop a lot and your perception will literally be physical!
They always remain in the audio field, we inform you that the medium and high frequencies also play a lot, returning clear dialogues even in the most excited and action-packed scenes.
Overall, the audio sector of this Home Video edition has fully satisfied us as much as the video one. Both departments are top notch and well balanced with each other.
This new Home Video edition of Godzilla Vs Kong also brings with it numerous additional contents useful for discovering the work, although they are substantially contained on the Blu-ray disc. Among these we find the director’s audio commentary about the entire production and the contents that see the cast and the entire crew at the center. It is about an hour of extra content which, however, in our opinion could perhaps have brought something more, such as for example a greater insight into the production processes which involved a massive use of special effects.
Godzilla Vs Kong 4K, the conclusions
In summary, Godzilla Vs Kong, published in the 4K UHD + Blu-ray steelbook version, boasts a highly relevant technical sector. The images are a sharp blade thanks to a sharpness of sure relief. The colors, thanks to the presence of Dolby Vision, are dense and offer an extended range even in the darkest scenes. The audio sector is also of great importance and is able to bring a real earthquake within the walls of enthusiasts thanks to the presence of low frequencies capable of making anything in the room vibrate. This edition also contains a series of clips dedicated to the discovery of the behind the scenes of the film. The sector is interesting even if we would have liked more in-depth analysis as regards the discovery of the production process dedicated to special cuts.
