Yep I seem to remember the same thing. Good first half and progressively worse as it went on to the point where I didn't care. Glad that people who love the film can get it in 4K now though.Was really hooked by the story, performances and suspense but then gradually got worse from half way. Think I fell asleep during the last part at the cinema. Watched it again on TV a few years later and still fell asleep for the last third! Went on a bit too long.
First half was excellent though. The young actors were all excellent.
Great movie, but £6 on iTunes in 4K and DV vs 20 quid for the disc. It’s getting really hard to justify physical disc purchases for such a minimal upgrade over the streaming option. I will admit that lossless Atmos on discs definitely sounds better, but when the disc doesn’t even have that, there is no way I’d pay full whack. A 2 for 20 special if ever there was one.
Feels like the big studios actually want disc sales to fail if they continue to push out lazy releases like this.
Sure, I agree, but I have the Blu-ray version, so they have to do something to justify the upgrade. The original soundtrack may be great, but a good Atmos mix definitely wouldn't hurt either. The link in the previous post shows there is little or no extra detail in the image, so HDR is the only benefit.The existing sound mix is absolutely superb. Not all ATMOS mixes are an improvement over the original.
