Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is set up and accused of an assassination attempt on President Trumbull (Morgan Freeman). He needs to prove his innocence by avoiding his Agency and the FBI and going after the real terrorist.
The CGI battles in here look too real to be just CGI and Gerard Butler asks us to come back to let them show us how things were done. And these battles and stunts are simply fantastic. However, I could not find anything that would show how things (Stunts, shootings, chases, crashes and the like etc) were done. So don’t bother looking.
I thought this would be another ‘Olympus is Falling’ or ‘London has Fallen’, and yes, I was right, but it’s the CGI that wins in here. It just looks too real and kept me more than engaged. I guess that’s a compliment. The pacing was perfect and nothing was overdone. Good dialogues too.
Movie Quality: 9.5/10
The print is presented in 2160p/4K UltraHD with a 2.39:1 aspect ratio. The color palette really pops off the screen, and never disappoints one bit. Black levels provide some excellent depth. Scenes up close and when the camera pans away show provide stunning details. Then when everything goes to hell and it turns into a war torn world, the high def takes yet another step up that will impress. The CGI is a spectacle. It could’ve easily had the Uncanny Valley effect, which would’ve been a major flaw considering most of this movie’s setting which has some mixture, not to mention how entertaining the action scenes are in this third film.
Print Quality: 9.5/10
The audio is presented in a Dolby Atmos/TrueHD 7.1 mix. The soundfield is immersive at all times no matter if it is the special effects or dialogue. I was literally amazed with the amount of action panning from each speaker in the rears. It sounded as if there were all kinds of objects ricocheting off of the walls in the room. Bass was punchy as it shows with the amount of blasts and explosions. Dialogue is also well placed in the center channel sounding crisp and clear.
