THE LAST WITCH HUNTER REVIEWED IN 4K
“The Last Witch Hunter” is the kind of film that nerds think they want, but then reject upon release. There is a great deal of world building, modern fantasy elements and a secret world of magic. All the while, it plays like one of those prolonged RPGs that all the kids want me to take a chance on in my off-time. Rose Leslie and Elijah Wood turn in strong supporting performances, but there’s nothing here to raise the material out of an afternoon trifle. I strongly believe that the film will find its second wind on home video, but it was kinda dumb releasing something this clunky during the Halloween season.
Now, this is the first film that I’ve really enjoyed in 4K. The visual treat aspect of seeing smooth flowing CG and deep blacks creates what might be the first reference disc in the 4K Ultra HD format. The DTS:X audio track is continuing to impress me with its directional flow. Lots of signal bounce and the subwoofer takes a pounding throughout the presentation. For those just getting onto the 4K train, this is a great disc to start your collection.
