It’s time to go back to Isla Nublar, where the new Jurassic World won’t suffer any of the issues that its predecessor did, will it…? Now in 4K Ultra HD form, how does it fare on the format? Will you be rapt(or), or left kind of Blue?
The story: You know it. Man brings dinosaurs back from extinction via DNA meddling, the prehistoric beasties do what comes naturally and all manner of havoc is wreaked. Several years after events of the original trilogy, Jurassic World – built on the site of its predecessor – has another bite of the dino-tourist dollar, and everything seems a whole lot safer now. Even that newly-created hybrid dinosaur seems to be behaving itsel- oh… oh dear! Hopefully Chris Pratt and Dallas Bryce Howard can save the day.
“It’s gonna be just like taking a walk in the woods… 65 million years ago.”
The 4K disc: The final master for Jurassic World was made at 2.4K, which in (slightly) less technical speak means it comes to our players upscaled to 4K. Regardless, the vision is mostly quite detailed, with a slight sheen of grain – more noticeable at some times rather than others – and aided masterfully by HDR enhancement. Just look at any scenes involving pools or triple-hulled catamaran boat thingies (sorry for the complete absence of technical jargon there, our resident sea captain is off plunderin’) and try not to be impressed.
As for the sonic experience, seeing Jurassic World in appropriately-equipped cinemas gave us Dolby Atmos, however here we get an awesome DTS:X mix that really lets loose when, well, things get loose onscreen.
Extras-wise, there’s nothing on the 4K disc, with the original Blu-ray features not surprisingly housed on the enclosed Blu-ray disc.
