Wowhd are doing the replacement of discs that have been ordered through them,so when they have the replacement discs they will ship them to all people who ordered from them.Idont have DV so it is not an issue with me.I got this disc for Christmas through wowhd. Kino lorber are doing a disc replacement program and are having it ready by the end of January. As I hadn’t even open the disc because of the problem I was unaware of the Dolby vision which is a massive shame and hopefully it gets corrected.
Broken Arrow and Windtalkers are solid, Hard Target is great, and Face Off is one of the best - if not the best - action movies of all times.I've never seen a Hollywood John Woo movie I thought was remotely decent.
Hard Target, Face Off, MI2 (the weakest of them all by a huge margin), Windtalkers, Paycheck, Broken Arrow.
They're either dumb action (and I love an action movie) or just dumb. The action stuff is too over the top, I need a little basis in reality, even if it's barely credible. The characters are often poorly written or the same type of over the top cliches.
Not a fan at all.
Now his HK movies on the other hand.....
I've seen and enjoyed a few of them.
and Face Off is one of the best - if not the best - action movies of all times.
GOTG "the new Star Wars". Yeah, sure.Just shows how we all like different things.
Face/Off is a prime example of the type of action movie I don't enjoy. It's so totally over the top, unrealistic bobbins I have no time for it at all. The 2 main characters are terribly written and cliched. Add in the weird face touching thing and it's a big:-
"I've watched it once at the cinema, gave it a 2nd chance at home as sometimes I get these things wrong or I'm not in the right mood (Guardians of The Galaxy was a prime example) but no, I was right the first time and IMO it's complete trash"
I'm down with Cas on this one - HT is a brilliant cheese steak of a Hollywood actioner. Cinema's greatest mullet and professional snake punching alone should see this elevated within the action cinema Hall of Fame. Will defo be picking this up when KL issue a fixed disc.
Although JCVDs best? Its a toss up between this and Sudden Death for me. Powers Boothe rocks it and lets be honest, JCVD met his toughest opponent ever in the bowels of that stadium......View attachment 1628596
Experiencing the exact same issue on my Hard Target 4K disc too. It was strobing badly till I updated my UB820 and now it’s more like it’s forcing the TV backlight to brighten or dim whenever there is a camera angle change. More obvious from the first bar fight as before this it’s mostly night scenes with lightning and rain.
Was this review done using a Panny UB820? I’m wondering if the problem is tied to this specific player..I don’t have another DV player to test this disc on so maybe the guys at AVforums could check if they have a spare 5 mins. Thanks.
We reviewed Kino Lorber's US 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Hard Target on an LG 55B7 Dolby Vision 4K Ultra HD OLED TV with a Panasonic DP-UB820EB-K Dolby Vision HDR10+ 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player.
