REVIEW — “Resident Evil: Vendetta” UltraHD 4K Blu-ray
Resident Evil: Vendetta, the action-packed third installment in the state-of-the-art CG animated franchise from executive producer Takashi Shimizu (director of The Grudge), debuts on digital June 20th and on 3-disc 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, 2-disch Blu-ray and DVD July 18th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The 4K Ultra HD disc features both Dolby Vision high-dynamic range (HDR) and Dolby Atmos immersive audio, making it the first title from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to feature both technologies.
Featuring the return of fan favorite characters Chris Redfield (Kevin Dorman) and Leon S. Kennedy (Matthew Mercer) as well as the film debut of Rebecca Chambers (Erin Cahill), Resident Evil: Vendetta follows the trio as they aim to stop the spread of a deadly virus that threatens to destroy New York City.
Resident Evil: Vendetta‘s presentation is nearly flawless, in keeping with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s high quality transfers. The 4K disc, with its top-shelf picture and audio, is the best way to experience the animated feature, a solid horror romp that should satisfy fans of the survival horror video games, as well as fans of the live-action Resident Evil series and the past three animated Resident Evil features. Gory, dark, and grotesque, Resident Evil: Vendetta delivers everything fans have come to expect from a series installment, with a perfect audio track (Dolby Atmos) that will put your system through the ringer.
The set includes six featurettes, a still gallery, and a (Japanese) audio commentary with director Takanori Tsujimoto, Executive Producer Takashi Shimizu, and writer Makoto Fukami.
