  • An enjoyable, if somewhat formulaic sports drama, with excellent 1080p video quality and an underwhelming Dolby Atmos mix; lacking bonus features.

  • Video: 93

  • "The Boys in the Boat" offers an impressive 1080p HD presentation that masterfully captures its digital, desaturated aesthetic with strong fine detail, accurate colors, and adequate contrast. While lacking a 4K option, the Blu-ray's encoding ensures no compression artifacts, providing a near-perfect visual experience on small to mid-sized screens.

  • Audio: 92

  • The Dolby Atmos track for 'The Boys in the Boat' offers clear dialogue, robust dynamics, and an engaging surround mix, though it lacks distinctive overhead activity, making it similar to a 5.1 mix. Key audio highlights include Alexandre Desplat's score and effective LFE during competition sequences.

  • Extra: 48

  • "The Boys in the Boat" Blu-ray release notably lacks any special features or supplements, offering only a Digital Copy redemption code, making it a missed opportunity for fans seeking deeper insights into the story.

  • Movie: 82

  • George Clooney's *The Boys in the Boat,* though predictable and occasionally meandering, delivers an old-fashioned, heartstring-tugging sports drama, bolstered by well-paced rowing sequences, strong performances from Callum Turner and Joel Edgerton, and Alexandre Desplat's period score, but lacks deeper character development and sustained excitement.
