    • X-Men: The Last Stand was shot using Panavision cameras on 35mm film but is sufficiently recent to have been finished in the digital realm as a 2K DI. It is this DI that has been up-scaled and used here...

    • Unfortunately the disc has not been up-graded to the immersive surround tracks, so no Dolby Atmos or DTS-X, what we do have is the same DTS-HD MA 6.1 track that adorned the previous releases. Once again,...

    • But are you ready to do what's necessary when the time comes? After two stints in the director’s chair, Bryan Singer left the X-Men franchise to work on Superman Returns, leaving behind Brett Ratner to...

    • The Last Stand is not a bad film, the trouble is it’s not that great either. A change of director, a cobbled together script and studio interference meant that the emotional core of the previous films...

    • X-Men: The Last Stand is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with a 2160p transfer in 2.40:1. While shot on film as with the first two outings, this is reportedly upscaled...

    • This release contains the same excellent DTS-HD Master Audio 6.1 track from the original 1080p Blu-ray release which Marty assessed in his X-Men: The Last Stand Blu-ray review. As I mentioned in the reviews...

    • Note: This 4K UHD version of the film is available as part of X-Men Trilogy 4K. Perhaps surprisingly, given how frequently my review queue has recently been filled with 4K UHD releases that are at least...

    • Those who pay attention to such things may notice that I actually gave X-Men: The Last Stand a slightly higher score than Marty did, since I didn't feel the drop off in excitement was quite as pronounced...

    • X-MenMutants fight injustice with a great-looking HEVC H.265 encode, offering several notable improvements over its Blu-ray counterpart. Originally shot on 35mm film, the 2160p transfer comes with an appreciable...
