Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
4K Ultra HD
Star Trek IV: A fun time travel romp, visually impressive 2160p/Dolby Vision, Nimoy's finest directorial effort, and arguably the best in the series.
The Voyage Home's 4K rendition is a commendable improvement, boasting a satisfying 2160p/Dolby Vision presentation, gorgeous HDR-enhanced colors, and impressive clarity despite some encoding struggles with hazy cinematography and grain structure.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home UHD provides a solid Dolby TrueHD 7.1 soundtrack with a medium-wide soundstage, effective use of surround channels, and impactful subwoofer during time travel scenes; nonetheless, not quite demo-worthy.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home UHD release boasts a vast selection, including 2 commentaries and extensive Blu-ray extras. However, Trek fans might find Orci & Kurtzman's commentary controversial, while also enjoying informative featurettes such as one on Chekov.
'Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home' brings a light, frothy touch to the franchise, with its 2160p/Dolby Vision video and Dolby TrueHD 7.1 audio. Set after Star Trek III, Kirk and crew return home, embracing their offbeat oddball status within a more heady series than Star Wars.

Actors: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley
Plot: To save Earth from an alien probe, Admiral James T. Kirk and his fugitive crew go back in time to San Francisco in 1986 to retrieve the only beings who can communicate with it: humpback whales.

Given what we've had to endure before, The Voyage Home's 4K rendition is a marked and commendable improvement and easily the best the film has ever looked
... it's a very good track, though hardly demo
... possibly the biggest selection of any of the discs in this release
... it really is a very light, frothy and frivolous affair but that turns out to be precisely what the franchise needed
... a frivolously fun time travel romp to cleanse the palate
