  • Video: 80

  • Paramount's 'Primal Fear' 4K release offers modest enhancements over Blu-ray, with clearer but not dramatic sharpness and richer colors via Dolby Vision, in a double-disc set.

  • Audio: 85

  • The 4K restoration of Primal Fear enhances image and sound, offering a more natural color palette and detailed visuals despite encoding issues, alongside a dynamic, clear soundtrack.

  • Extra: 75

  • Primal Fear's 4K disc boasts a technically strong, yet straightforward sound mix with limited, precise surround sound, featuring multilingual subtitles. Extras are Blu-ray only, highlighting a new filmmaker focus. Despite solid audio, it lacks dynamic sonic depth.

  • Movie: 85

  • Primal Fear, a pinnacle of courtroom drama, is praised for its narrative depth and strong performances. The 1996 film's UHD release by Paramount features high-quality audio and visuals, plus a new supplement.
