A Joy to watch in 4K

This is a fantastic upgrade to 4K HDR that only differs in the beginning due to Steven Spielberg's filming choice of bright camera levels in the opening scene but when the 3 main characters travel at night and during close ups of Tom Cruise's character the benefits of the 4K upgrade really shines alongside superior sound that helps to make voices clearer and reduce background noises for a more life life and authentic atmosphere. Although the film has it's problems such as a simplified ending that didn't match the intelligent movie that had taken place during the 2 hour movie it delivered on the characters journey which is what this movie is really about which is a family drama, the father wanting love from his son, the son wanting to feel that his father cares about him and the dauther who needs to confront her fears. In conclusion I have given this movie a 5 star rating because it is highly rewatchable and I have watched it 100's of times at this point but the 4K upgrade makes it worth a watch as these improvements make them feel cinematic and more true to the director's true vision.

Never looked better

This superlative transfer of what is one Spielberg’s best films of the last 25 years is the best you will ever see, don’t even hesitate in ordering this, you will not regret it!

Masterful

Great deal on a great product. A sweet transfer to ultra HD makes for an elevated experience of one of Spielberg's most underrated gems and one of my favourite alien invasion movies, truly haunting and riveting viewing.
