Infinite appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this 4K UHD Disc. A native 4K product, the Dolby Vision presentation looked consistently terrific.
At all times, definition looked great. The film showed solid delineation, with nary a soft spot to be found.
I witnessed no shimmering or jagged edges, and edge haloes failed to appear. Of course, print flaws also didn’t occur, so this was a clean image.
In terms of colors, Infinite emphasized the usual amber/orange and teal, though a few shots boasted some broader tones. While largely predictable, the hues seemed well-rendered. The disc’s HDR gave the elements added depth and intensity.
Blacks were dark and deep, and low-light shots offered nice smoothness and clarity. HDR brought extra impact and power to whites and contrast. Everything about the image worked.
Downconverted to Dolby TrueHD 7.1, the Dolby Atmos soundtrack of Infinite presented an exciting experience. One would anticipate a high-octane blast from a movie like this, and that’s what the mix delivered.
The soundfield boasted a lot of activity and used the channels well. Vehicles and various forms of mayhem came from logical spots all around the room and meshed in a smooth manner. All the speakers became active partners to turn this into a vibrant, engrossing track.
Audio quality also seemed strong. Music was lively and full, and speech appeared natural and concise.
Effects dominated and appeared solid. Those elements came across as accurate and dynamic, with fine low-end response as well. I felt pleased with this sizzling soundtrack.
Four featurettes appear here, and They Call Themselves Infinites runs seven minutes, 43 seconds. It brings notes from producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, production designer Chris Seagers, VFX supervisor Pete Bebb, screenwriter Ian Shorr, stunt coordinator Nikki Powell, special effects supervisor Mark Holt, property master Terry Wood, and actors Mark Wahlberg, Chiwetel Ojiofor, Sophie Cookson, and Jason Mantzoukas.
“Call” covers story/characters, sets and design choices and various effects. The show offers a mix of moderate insights and praise.
The Kinetic Action of Infinites lasts eight minutes, 56 seconds and involves di Bonaventura, Holt, 2nd unit director Simon Crane, action vehicle supervisor Graham Kelly, camera operator Eduardo Flores, and actors Dylan O’Brien, Rupert Friend, and Joana Ribeiro.
As expected, “Kinetic” examines some of the movie’s action sequences. Though it comes with some of the usual happy talk, “Kinetic” delivers a reasonably informative overview.
Next comes Anatomy of a Scene, a 12-minute, 55-second piece that includes di Bonaventura, Crane, Wahlberg, Kelly, Seagers, Bebb, Ojiofor, Cookson, Holt, and Powell.
Here we get details about the elements involved with the film’s “Police Station and Forest” sequences. Expect another decent mix of praise and details.
Finally, Infinite Time spans five minutes, 11 seconds and gives us remarks from di Bonaventura, Bebb, and Powell.
“Time” discusses a big revelatory segment in the film’s climax. It comes with a few insights.
Essentially a ripoff of The Matrix, Infinite becomes a more interesting movie than its poor reviews would indicate, mainly via a smattering of well-executed action films. However, it lacks an intelligent POV and a coherent narrative, so it ends up as a mushy mess. The 4K UHD boasts excellent visuals and audio along with a handful of bonus materials. Despite some A-list talent involved, this turns into a “C-“ movie.
