    • Hell or High Water is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of Lionsgate Films with a 2160p transfer in 2.40:1. This is now the second Lionsgate release with Dolby Vision that I've been able to review since upgrading...

    • Despite being advertised as featuring a Dolby Atmos upgrade, the one potential disappointment for consumers here is that this release contains the same admittedly excellent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track...

    • Hell or High Water was shot digitally on the Arri Alexa XT and is presented on both discs in the 2.40:1 aspect ratio. The 4K disc contains both Dolby Vision and HDR10 versions of the movie, although this...

    • In one of the biggest packaging/marketing blunders we've seen from a studio so far this year, there is no Dolby Atmos audio on the 4K disc. This is despite the fact that the keepcase slick, the slipcover,...

    • Please note: Lionsgate has once again included all of the bonus materials from the Blu-ray on the 4K disc (most of the other studios don't do this). Of course, this naturally makes the Blu-ray disc worthless,...

    • The best indicator of a movie's greatness is how well it holds up upon both multiple viewings and time. I first watched Hell or High Water back in 2016, and felt at the time that it was the best film among...

    • As a movie, Hell or High Water is a blast...full of fun, fury, and some of the best written (and acted) dialogue you'll find in a motion picture. As a 4K Ultra HD release, however, it's a bit of a disappointment...
