      Thanks Cas i did not expect much from this film but i have to say i really enjoyed it, normally i would just sit through the whole film for the effects and sound. Sound was seriously good.

      I give the film a good 7

      Cheers Cas, me and the boss are about to watch the 3D blu ray version of this, little worried that it may be too dark, but the Atmos track should even out the playing field.

      Big, dumb, fun. My favourite scenes are the ones where Dwayne Johnson tries to emote.

      @Casimir Harlow

      I’ve seen this in 4K and agree with you on the whole Cas :smashin: it was really enjoyable - almost guilty enjoyable as it shouldn’t have been as good as it was :) as you say it was part Die Hard, part Towering Inferno and ludicrously over the top :rotfl:

      But Dwayne was on form ... & there ain’t nothing enough duck tape won’t fix :laugh:
      Visually it looked superb in 4K & the sound was great too. I was also surprised the visual sfx looked so good / convincing.

      I’d of given the film a 7 rather than a 6 but definitely 8 overall. Great review & an enjoyable read as always cheers Cas :thumbsup:

      I agree on the film score
      6/10

      The Rock is always watchable but I didn't enjoy this as much. The jokes didn't work at all either. Especially the duck tape ones.

      This was the blandest movie I have seen for a long time. It's not actually bad, it's just nothing - not very exciting, not very funny, not very thrilling, just utterly generic and forgettable. I am struggling to recall any details about it even though I only saw it a few days ago.

      Watched this tonight (rented, on the Apple TV 4K). It was alright. I'd be a bit annoyed had I spent more than £5.49 on it, but it looked great at least.

      Just watched this afternoon and yes it was a leave your brain at the door movie but I thought it was very enjoyable.
      Looked awesome in Dolby Vision and the Atmos sound was very good.

      I rented this on Apple TV last night... first time I've tried 4K Dolby Vision with Atmos sound outside of UHD Blu-Ray.

      Nice quality pic and sound from Apple, but the film is pants... and every scene is utterly predictable. Formulaic nonsense!

      Sometimes that's ok, but it did't really have anything else going for it.
      And I just didn't see the need for the artificial leg... it added nothing and made the fighting / running / jumping scenes all the more ridiculous.

      Fun enough watch, and much better than Rampage
