      Thanks for review, I always go UHD when possible but the price difference between it and the BD is too much for me this time. £25 v £13 plus all the reviews say it's a barely noticeable upgrade.

      If it was priced at £20 like some other new releases then I'd be all over it.

      I expected to hate this film but I ended up rather enjoying it. Yes it's utterly ridiculous but it has its tongue firmly in its cheek and was actually quite funny with some decent action scenes, especially when Donnie Yen was involved.

      Agree, I prefered this to F&F 8, while both are ridiculous, F&F has just lost it for me, this one knows it's ridiculous, and has fun with it. Donnie Yen steals the show. Still going with 3D over UHD with this one though.

      Worse film I've seen in a long time. Not sure how I stuck with till the end but I did and it couldn't come soon enough. Honestly guys save your money. Wouldn't even recommend this as a rental. Usually score pretty similar to Cas but how this got a 6/10 is beyond me? 1/10. Avoid.

      Colours? Pink reds? Over saturated to eye bleeding levels? Or do I need to go back to calibration school? I'm talking about the Blu-ray disc here but as they are no longer reviewed as a mainstream media here I need to go off topic ;)

      Went to see this with my wife. Spent the best part of two hours wanting to walk out. If only I had known she was thinking the same thing. A truly awful film.

      I don't mind 'leaving my brain at the theatre door' but this was a truly shambolic effort. One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Had to switch it off after 60 odd minutes.

      I'm right in the middle of watching this and I'm
      Struggling to keep it on.

      The Atmos track is decent and the 3d is also rather good but the film is just utter tripe. I know it's meant to be over the top, tongue in cheek etc but it's just ridiculous.

      Gutted I put it on tbh as I only get this chance once a week whilst my little lad is in nursery for a few hours in the morning. Should have chosen more wisely.

      Edit:

      Just confirm it is in fact worse than I thought previously... Terrible terrible film.

      Well, I'll buck the trend and say "I liked it". But I am easily pleased. I usually get something out of most movies.

      Very good UHD picture and Atmos was fun.

      Oh! and................
