  • Video: 87

  • Paramount's 4K UHD release of 'Once Upon a Time in the West' has a notable upscaling to 2160p/Dolby Vision with enhanced warm tones and black levels, yet is marred by compression issues on a BD-66 disc and some overly smoothed grain due to DNR, offering a better, yet not definitive upgrade over past Blu-rays.

  • Audio: 92

  • Retaining the legacy tracks from the 2011 Blu-ray, 'Once Upon a Time in the West's' 4K Ultra HD audio delivers a satisfying mix of DTS-HD MA 5.1 and Dolby Digital mono, immersing listeners with a broad, clear, and atmospherically rich soundstage that honors Ennio Morricone's score.

  • Extra: 89

  • Once Upon a Time in the West's UK 4K release offers an extensive array of both new and legacy features, highlighted by insightful commentaries from Spaghetti Western Podcast hosts, directors, and film historians. While extras are limited to the bundled Blu-ray, the set includes a slipcase, art cards, and a digital code, ensuring a comprehensive collector's package.

  • Movie: 98

  • Once Upon a Time in the West, by Sergio Leone, is hailed as a masterpiece of the Western genre, beautifully showcasing epic themes of revenge, survival, and transformation with impeccable direction, magnificent cinematography, and a haunting score by Ennio Morricone. The UHD release solidifies its status with stunning 2160p/Dolby Vision video.
