      Thanks for the review, you've answered my question on whether we would get the uncut version on 4K

      Is this the un-censored version? Or the gimped UK version?

      Overrated nonsense. They argue on a plane, a hole appears in the sky, they have a street fight.

      More a helicopter than a plane, in my opinion :)

      The Blu-ray was already top notch but having watched the UHD on Monday, the UHD blows it out of the water.

      Fantastic disc - definitely will be one I use to show off the new OLED.

      Does it make the film good?

      The UHD contains the uncensored version of the film along with the original 'Avengers' title and not 'Avengers Assemble' but they have added a 'Avengers Assemble' caption to the title card which just looks weird.

      Also pretty sure the included Blu-ray is the original UK disc so not only is it censored but it is missing the audio commentary and several other extras so the reviewer might want to double check that.

      In my top 3 MCU films so I'd say so. Love me a street fight.

      This.

      Stuck it on earlier, and skipped to when the invasion begins.

      OMG!

      Some HDR test clips have been out for a while on YouTube so I wasn't totally surprised at the picture quality. I am surprised with the sound though. Yes it is mixed low but when you turn it up it's still easily better than Black Panther and Thor.

      Thanks for the Review Simon.
      I've nearly caught up on my "Must Have" 4K upgrades. Or at least I thought I had, but then I read this!
      Damn! Oh well, keeps the Ebay account ticking along :)

      Unable to speak as to the Atmos Mix yet as I haven’t had chance to play it with the sound system cranked up yet, but can confirm that this is one of the most impressive upscales yet.

      The detail is great, but the colours and brightness, and the blacks, it’s all grade-A eye candy! Maybe it’s the 1.85:1 ratio but if it’s between this and Infinity War to show off my OLED, I’m gonna go with Assemble every time.

      Now all I have to do is decide whether to watch the 4K or 3D version each time....

      Had a quick look at my copy yesterday and it did indeed look very tasty.

      This easily blows Infinity War out of the water on the AV front. The picture is near demo worthy. Nice application of HDR as well.

      I thought they were pretty close but the Audio is a little better than Infinity War.

      Full screen, consistent usage of HDR, near consistent sharpness and colours on Avengers over Infinity War. Sound wise, I kind of agree with you but thought the Atmos mix was better than the DTS HD MA in the original release which had filtered bass.
