Well worth £4.99, we really enjoyed this although never seen it in 4K.
It's been this price before and a few may have missed out at it at this price. Either way a good 4K movie for this price.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin and Sam Worthington star in this adventure thriller directed by Baltasar Kormákur. The film tells the story of the 1996 climbing expedition in which two groups, led by Rob Hall (Clarke) and Scott Fischer (Gyllenhaal), attempted to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Although the two groups had plentiful experience and had trained to deal with the adverse conditions and low oxygen levels that are present at such a high altitude, nothing could prepare them for the freak storm which hit during the expedition...

Yet another AV industry mis-selling scam. First fake HDR TVs with low contrast 8 bit panels, now this: fake 4K content that's been upscaled. I couldn't believe it when, after recently researching and buying a good 4K TV, I discovered this. Everest, like many movies produced in 3D, was in fact mastered via a 2K workflow. There is no 4K master of this film. You need to check this list carefully before shelling out for UHD discs.

With this UHD release, you're getting something which, in resolution (i.e. definition) terms, is no better than a regular Bluray disc. The main advantage of the UHD release will be the addition of HDR.

That is not to say that a 2K master cannot exceed a Bluray disc spec. Typically the master will be in 4:4:4 chroma rather than chroma subsampled to 4:2:0. So each pixel will have its own colour information rather than it being averaged across four pixels as is normally the case on Bluray and UHD discs. This encoding method exploits the fact that human retinas have more rod cells (luminance sensing) than cone cells (colour sensing). Consequently a UHD transfer cut from a 4:4:4 FHD master will have better colour definition than a simple upscale, in line with 4:2:0 chroma on UHD. Explanation here:
rtings.com/tv/…ing.
The luminance data, arguably more important, will be mostly unchanged from the FHD Bluray (they may apply sharpening effects or other processing).

Staggeringly, even a visually stunning recent film like Blade Runner 2049 was shot in camera at 3.4K with VFX and post prod done at 4K. These details can be checked on IMDB before you make a UHD purchase:
imdb.com/tit…pec

Older movies shot on 35mm film are generally ok as they can continue to be rescanned yielding enhancements up to around 4K. However beware some releases are upscales of the Bluray master scans and are not true 4K re-scans.

Basically, high end modern TVs are so good now that the film industry is having to catch up. Most cinemas aren't even HDR capable, and are usually 2K digital projection:

I’d say it’s more important to check individual reviews rather than a list of what is real 4K or not. Agreed it can be mis sold but the addition of HDR can be a big change

Not to mention much higher bit rate. Arguably, resolution is one of the least important factors of quality.
Are 4K films usually really quiet when played just through the TV speakers? I just used the TV to check the 4K disc worked (with a 4K player). Will use better speakers when I properly watch the film.

The sound was really quiet even after doubling the TV volume. Looked in settings but could not see anything which needed changing.

Seemed a bit odd.
Jesus, they can't give this movie away

To be honest I just care about how good the film looks rather than the behind the scenes processing and production. Having a 4k tv and seeing uhd and hdr for the first time, I am very impressed.
Enjoyable film, it's worth reading the book by Anatolie boukreev who was one of the guides on this expedition as well, he got quite a lot of flack, undeservedly so imo.
Brilliant film. Good price too heat added
Great Film
I bought this the last time it was on offer at 4.99, but haven't even watched it yet :-) Regardless as to the "fake 4K" debate, the Blu Ray for this is 8.28 quid on Amazon, so it's cheaper than that and worth buying over the Blu Ray for that reason alone.

I think the only 4K UHD HDR Blu Ray I've bought cheaper than this is the (excellent) Lego Movie. I wish all 4K Blu Rays were a fiver or less!

Thus bullship needs to stop.
Incidentally, if any of you have VR, I recommend experiencing the Everest VR title before you watch the film. It was made by the Icelandic vfx house that worked on the film. I found that having a decent awareness of the various zones of the mountain and the history of the routes greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the film.
Ted Mould was great in this.

The movie was shot on the Arri Alexa XT Plus camera system, which per the manufacture shoots natively at 3.2K resolution at Rec.709, with several sequences shot at 6K resolution thanks to the Red Dragon cameras.
The 3D blu-ray version is worth a look and the film gets better with a second viewing.
Anyone who votes this cold you are just being insensitive to those who really died
I just wanna say to anyone even vaguely interested in 'climbing'. watch the documentary from last year called The Dawn Wall. Its the best documentary I've ever seen, far better than Free Solo. There are so many amazing and significant events all the way through it.

No but with HD audio comes many compatibility issues that can be quite random between devices and produce this issue. Try changing the audio decoder on your 4Kplayer.
