IMDB reports that The Magnificent Seven was shot on film but finished at 2K, an oddity and something of an outlier to be sure. Nevertheless, the 2160p/HDR-enhanced image is quite attractive and a solid to, at times, substantial upgrade over the excellent 1080p Blu-ray disc. The image is noticeably crisper and more refined, its details tighter and enjoying a greater sense of polish and natural sharpness. Everything -- faces, clothing, terrain, wooden structures, leather, weapons -- presents with heightened definition and a much greater sense of natural, tangible intimacy across practically every frame. It's amazing how much tighter and more robust the image appears. It maintains a beautiful filmic appearance. Grain is even and obvious, relatively light though still perhaps a touch sharper than some would like. Color saturation is much improved over the Blu-ray. The HDR enhancement never alters the movie's intended look and feel but rather accentuates the palette, offering significantly increased saturation and nuance, evident even through the heavily warm and mildly bronzed look the movie has to offer. It still looks hot and dusty, but there's a much greater sense of natural efficiency to every shade, as well as a much greater color depth. Black levels could stand to go a little deeper and darker, but such is the only worthwhile complaint in an otherwise terrific 4K presentation that's right up there, maybe only a sliver behind, Sony's best UHD offerings to date.

Audio Quality

Whereas The Magnificent Seven's 1080p Blu-ray featured a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless soundtrack -- and an excellent one at that -- this UHD release contains a Dolby Atmos (core Dolby TrueHD 7.1) track, which incorporates overhead object-based sound in addition to the traditional 7.1 setup. The tracks are largely similar on the macro level -- big, wide, aggressive -- but the benefits the Atmos track provides are fairly obvious. Musical precision is noticeably tighter, fuller in its wrap around the main body as well as pushing just a little through the top layer for a more spherical, immersive, yet still very well balanced, listen. Notes are precise and the finest instrumental details are plainly audible. Atmospherics are likewise a bit fuller, more greatly encompassing while still featuring terrific clarity through every fine detail. Of course, the movie's main attraction are its shootouts. Gunfire is deep and potent, perhaps not quite so aggressive as it could be, but for the sake of the track's structural balance (and the listener's ears), they're as penetrating as can be without going overboard. There's a beautiful richness and fullness to the chaos of both of the movie's extended shootouts. Bullets zip through, and it seems above, the stage for a completely immersive effect. There's no inch of the stage left not engaged in some form or fashion. Dialogue is clear and center focused with flawless clarity and prioritization.
