King Kong (Home Theater Review)

The story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Video Review

This was the first movie I ever experienced at home in High Definition, years ago. This was during the days of the first Blu-rays and HD disc's. The Xbox 360 had an external HD Player and Sony had their Blu-ray players. Well... Sony one the high definition disc war and we're here now. But the movie looks even better in 4k UHD today.

Sound Review

For a 5.1 surround sound nature movie it is still pretty good. I watched it in a Dolby Atmos sound system and was still thoroughly entertained. All of the speakers were engaged throughout the movie. All of the overhead sounds were perfect. You can tell that the sound score was intentionally made and not just thrown together.

Summary

Even though the sound is DTS-X and not Dolby Atmos it still shines in this movie. You should expect to enjoy this movie in an home theater environment. It's also a good story with funny moments and the CGI has held up, mostly, over the years.
