      Thanks Simon. This is one of my favourite UHDs of late. The soundtrack was thunderous in parts, the picture perfectly balanced and as you say sympathetic to the original. Very in keeping with the genre too.

      It's great to hear that the whore's underwear contains much more detail and not a hint of clipping. :D

      Looking forward to getting this on UHD.

      It's just a shame it's £25. No UHD should be any more than £20.

      I'm a massive Clint Eastwood fan... but this is far from my favourite Western he has made. "For A few Dollars More", "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly", "Pale Rider", "The Outlaw Josey Wales" are all superior in my opinion.

      I honestly feel all the praise lavished on this film and Eastwood was not just in praise of this particular film, but for his whole body of work he had done in his career in the Western genre.

      I'll pick this up eventually when it gets down to a more respectable 15 quid or so.

      There are many more Clint Eastwood films I'd rather see on 4k before this.

      Also just ordered, don't have 4k as yet just a reference 1080p set-up, hopefully the bluray is worth the £20, lossless audio is also very welcome.

      I paid £24.99 on Monday but after a long online chat with Amazon they have agreed to allow me to return it for free with a full refund. I have now reordered it at £19.99.
      So the discs will wave at each other as they pass by sometime tomorrow!
      The crazy world of Amazon!

      Goddamnit! I was going to hold out. But this review has had me pull the trigger. It's arriving tomorrow. It's my favourite western, my favourite Eastwood role, my favourite Hackman role. It's a perfect movie.

      I dont agree those not liking this much. I love this film. I had the DVD, HD DVD and Blu Ray. Thought the HD DVD looked great. But later versions of on Blu Ray may have just bettered it.

      This is a must buy for me.

      In regards to the original Blu-Ray, as I recall it had some fairly obvious edge enhancement, I don't recall it being a great looking disc, no more than decent by the standards of early discs.

      Yep, the picture, the colour accuracy, it's all amazing. My only issue is that, much like some other HDR presentations, dark scenes in day-lit rooms don't fare too well.

      But I put the normal BD that comes with it on straight after and watched the end scenes. No contest! Seriously. The 4k presentation is so much better. It's glorious. :D

      Aye, and I can't casually cancel it and order it elsewhere, as their system demands that I cancel the entire order, (with John Wick 2 and The Mummy Trilogy), as a discount code was used.

      I'd gladly pay more to the likes of HMV, but they're not listing The Mummy. Neither are Zoom.co.uk, oddly enough and they're owned by chuffing Universal.

      And then Ze Germans pull this one:

      Strewth, mate.

      Yeah. I'd have waited for the UK release, if not for the German one being the same price including shipping, (at the time of pre-order),out earlier and the all important 'Wendecover'.
