Ridley Scott directs the gripping war film Black Hawk Down. Columbia's work on this 2.40:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is nothing short of perfect. Sporting solid black levels, even colors, and no defects or imperfections, fans should be very pleased with this Academy Award-winning film's transfer. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English, as well as Dolby 2.0 Surround in French. The 5.1 mix ends up being an assault on the viewer's senses; featuring hard-hitting directional effects and crystal-clear sound, this is an excellent soundtrack that should give home theaters a hefty workout. Also included on this disc are subtitles in English, French, Chinese, and Thai. Unfortunately, the supplements on this disc are close to the bare minimum, including a short on-the-set featurette that runs about 20 minutes and gives little insight into the making of the film, a few filmographies on the cast and crew, and theatrical trailers for the movies Spider-Man and The One (yet curiously nothing for Black Hawk Down).

Sony is continuing it's great run of catalog films in 4K. Black Hawk Down looks and sounds amazing and is an upgrade from the already amazing blu-ray. The steelbook is a disappoint though. The front is the same as regular 4K cover and the back the shot of Josh Hartnett from the previous blu-ray release along with no interior artwork. It's not terrible just nothing special. Whether you purchase the regular 4K edition or the steelbook this is a release well worth buying.
Great action war movie that was nowhere near the experience of this new version compare to when I watched it in the theater when it came out.
Always a great picture on an OLED panel & because it’s an older movie I had to switch to my other custom HDR setting to avoid grain.
Atmos was impressive & was a reference demo material. Played on an Oppo through a 11.2 (7.2.4). There was life like moments for example, when helicopter scenes where projected on screen above you, the height ceiling channels activated giving you a realistic atmosphere. There were some 360 surround & some front and back panning that gives you that immersive sound we look for.
Too high considering it’s an old title.
As my summary reads I've pur based this movie 3x yes.... 1st time was on dvd... 2nd time wa as on blue ray.... and yes,yes I did I purchased in uhd 4k and I will say was an incredible picture. And watching the extended version made it even better... great movie... Do I really have to give it a yey or nay??? I just finish
The movie was fine out of the package and was bought as it was the only blu ray option for this movie at the time of purchase from Best Buy. However, I am now going to have to purchase a 4k Tv/player that I don't already have if I want to watch the extended version as it is only on the 4k disc.
