I like the movie. I watched the 4K UHD Bluray. I too was disappointed in the "soft focus scenes". I would have preferred the entire movie to be sharply focused (Filmed with digital camera than film). Much more impressed with John Wick 2 as far as picture quality goes. Otherwise an enjoyable movie.

The 4k bluray is a beast towards the end. All I kept thinking was look at the details in the helicopter.

The Dolby Atmos is really immersive, that's the bright spot. I am watching this in Dolby Vision, played by a Sony UBP-X700 on a Sony 75" X900F, and running through my Pioneer Elite VSX-LX303. All cables in the system at high speed, and other movies look and sound great.

Aside from the parachuting scene, nothing about the quality was great IMO. I get that it's a dark movie full of action. but other movies like Marvel movies, John Wick, Sicario, A Quiet Place, and even all my UHD digital copies from movies like Equalizer 2 are better via Vudu stream.

Just my pennies, wanted to see if if it was just me or if others had the same issue. My hard disk of Equalizer should be here today or tomorrow, will test out that one, I saw a 100 for the video presentation, will be interesting to see the benchmark for perfection.
I bought the 4k copy and it showed up, I rented the bluray befor it came and watched it. To be honest I didnt notice much difference in 4k. Not like other movies. So now I got this single 4k disc of a movie I dont particularly care for, with only one way to watch it lol. Like others I bought it expecting a great movie from the reviews, but hey I wasnt on the same hate boat with MI-2 as everyone else either.

Yeah I have never watched MI movies, just got it because I'm addicted to Dolby Atmos and HDR content. Not the best quality 4K representation. It is what it is though, live and learn. Will try to avoid 4k movies that were shot in film and just pick up the blu-ray instead.

Then you should stop watching these type of films shot with a certain intent and carry on watching those 4K HDR YouTube videos.

Interesting indeed how those penultimate scenes were shot in the Imax format. Is that done very often? Was so wrapped-up in the scenes...afterwards I was wondering if I would've noticed the format change if I hadn't read Ralph Potts excellent review!
Thanks again. Mr. Potts !=)

This is my take, the first parts of the movie were a little darker/shadowy with great detail (mild grain) but not a huge amount of "POP." However, some of the daytime scenes and most definitely the Imax scenes were fantastic. Great "POP" and what action! I can see where some people might expect a pristine ultra "POP" picture but I believe that the small amounts of film grain give it the detail and real "Gritty" feel, hate to overuse this cliche, but "film like" quality. I had no problem with it.

It's funny because I had a few friends over to watch it and one of the guys loved the way it looked. He loved the grain and told me that it actually looked like a "movie". I love a razor sharp image (which this movie lacked at times), but the film grain really made it cool and reminded me that I love the look of movies shot on film.

Grain is ok, soft focus is where complaints arise. By comparison, look at U-571, shot in Super 35 and excellent sharpness. Interesting, when I watched it on a 92" screen, the focus was more of an issue than when I looked at it on a 55". How we view our films varies so that needs to be factored in with the diverging opinions.

I watched "Fallout" last night on bluray upscaled to 4K, with Atmos and really enjoyed the movie, nonstop action and all! There was a lot of softness to the movie, but those IMAX scenes were something! The Atmos sound was very well done.


I didn't like not being able to use my manual masking system though due to the switched aspect ratios; never been a fan of this. My JVC 540 does the bars pretty well, but we all know its not the same as being masked off.

See ya. Dave

Here's my small short take on this on.

While some scene were too much on the grainy side (for me), some others were very details and sharp.
Audio wise, It was excellent

Did very much enjoy this movie, and worth watching a second time or more.
Tom Cruise and I, are about the same stature of height wise and age.
While I am in a very good shape at 55, it still amaze me. That he still do, all his own stunts

I didn't notice that much softness, I will re watch. Any scenes stand out? 65" OLED

No longer have it to point out a specific scene. All i know is that whenever i see a closeup regardless of the movie, if it looks soft, i notice the softness and wonder why it isn't a sharp image.

Good movie overall, picture quality was average at best. I like film grain but I found it lacked something to bring it to life. Atmos was immersive, but I thought the sound was a bit "dry" in some scenes. The finale scene is the highlight in both PQ and AQ!

Those imax scenes were insane PQ. I can’t wait for a time where all scenes are shot with such amazing cameras. The non imax scenes had grain and some people seem to hate that. Personally i liked the grain and didn’t think it was too much.

The audio was very pleasing. This atmos track was one of my top 5 of the year. Very good atmos usage in a number of scenes that sounded great!

Movie wise it was very entertaining as well! Good movie to pick up.

Might have looked good on your 65", but on my 128" I am certain that Dunkirk, Interstellar and The Dark Knight had better IMAX shots IMHO.

As always, experience will vary on different setups

Haven’t seen all those but the dark knight was equally impressive during the imax scenes.

The Dark Knight has decent PQ but I think stemmed from inexperienced cinematography in the format. Some shots just cheapened the overall look of the image. Clipping the top and bottom help with this a little bit, but the directing was uninspired when it came to camera usage. TDKR had similar issues, though not quite as bad. Once Nolan started working with Hoyte van Hoytema though, they found great ways to use IMAX cameras that kept largely consistent with the rest of those films, plus there were many more moments in Interstellar and Dunkirk that were shot with IMAX cameras.

I have yet to see what the Blu-ray for Fallout looks like in IMAX (I do expect I'll be getting it tomorrow morning for Christmas), but I'm guessing it will look pretty alright. I hate the switching aspect ratios though.

Nice post. TDK IMAX footage was good for that time but not any longer. TDKR IMAX scenes are shot better and look better than TDK proving they learned from past experience.

IMAX scenes on Dunkirk, TDKR and Transformers 4/5 impressed me a lot than the first IMAX scene on fallout.

I watched this as a rental from Netflix and enjoyed the movie especially the sound because the rental had Dolby Atmos sound. The helicopter scenes looked incredible on blu-ray upscale to 4K. I can only imagine how good it must of looked on 4k UHD. I plan on purchasing the set of Mission Impossible films on 4K.
