Batman 4K Review
Quality Batman 4K Blu Ray Pictures
Panaflex 35mm film cameras were used to shoot Batman. The disc was recently cleaned up and scan at 4K. This result has been used in this Ultra HD Bluray release. The disc contains a native resolution 3840x2160p image at widescreen 1.85×1 aspect ratio. This disc uses 10-bit video depth and has Wide Colour Gamut, High Dynamic Range, (HDR10) encoded with the HEVC codec (H.265). We reviewed the Region free UK Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Batman on a Panasonic 65DX902B Ultra HD 4K TV with a Panasonic DMP-UB400 Ultra HD Blu-ray player.
You will be amazed at the results of this new scan. It is stunning! Detail from Gotham's monolithic design to Wayne Manor's ornate covers is remarkable. When you take into account the WCG and HDR the image really comes alive.
Bright and vibrant colours, when they're used. Joker's suit's purple, the oranges from explosions. But, the most striking colour was Joker’s toy-like walking-takie. Although flesh tones seem natural enough, cool blues look great due to the colour timing variations.
Although the original film was dark and has been preserved over the years, now the film is DARK and with so much happening in the shadows. You can see the Batcave, plastic factory, or nighttime streets of Gotham. The frame depth is incredible. With sharp highlights, white is as impressive, and the bright searchlights are almost blinding.
Original source is in good condition. Compression issues are not a problem. Grain level is also pleasing. A stunning upgrade.

Batman Four-Film Collection 4K Review: Holy Visual & Audio Wizardry!
While it may be difficult to remember, in the era when a movie about a superhero appeared every other weekend in cinemas everywhere, Time Burton's Batman in 1989 was seen as incredibly risky. It was the first film of its kind since Richard Donner's Superman. However, history proved that Michael Keaton's role as Dark Knight was a huge success. Hollywood hasn't looked back. Along with Batman Returns, Batman Forever (and the other three movies that followed it), the movie and all the rest will receive the 4K Ultra HD upgrade.
You read that right. Warner Bros. is releasing all pre-Christopher Nolan Batman stories. It boasts a 4K visual upgrade as well as audio brilliance. For fans of The Bat, this is your moment. This is your chance to see four Batman movies that were made in the 1980s.
For those looking to upgrade to 4K Ultra HD Combo Packs, the packs will include a Bluray disc with an enhanced Blu-Ray. If you're not ready to make the leap to 4K yet, then it is a great idea to get in on the action now.
The 1989 Batman, Burton's film introduced us to the hero in the most unique of ways. The unique film, Jack Nicholson’s performance as The Joker and Kim Basinger's gorgeous portrayal of Vicki Vale make it a memorable movie. The soundtrack is a special one for this film, which aired on the screens over three decades ago.
1992's Batman Returns raised stakes for Burton Keaton, Keaton, and the gang with the addition of a few evil souls for Keaton’s Batman to battle Danny De. Michelle Pfeiffer and Vito are both The Penguin. Both of these evil men were beautifully captured by the great actors.
Joel Schumacher was to direct 1995's Batman Forever. Keaton left the Batsuit behind, and Val Kilmer took up the fight as Bruce Wayne. Schumacher's first venture into Gotham had him casting Jim Carrey for The Riddler. This is an excellent casting. Tommy Lee Jones was Harvey Dent/Two Face while Chris O'Donnell joined the cast as Dick Grayson/Robin. Batman got his long-serving sidekick, who was only present in Schumacher’s universe.
Tim Burton's single commentary appears on the Bluray and UHD. Blu-ray alone.
Running for 2 minutes, a promotional about Bob Kane is shown. With 40 minutes, there's time for exploration. Shadows of the Bat is split into three sections, with a 70-minute-long making-of. Beyond Batman takes a look at makeup, effects, scoring and more, taking 50 minutes.
A total of 20 minutes are required for separate featurettes that highlight the roles played by the hero and the antagonist. Blah. Storyboards of a deleted sequence potentially introducing Robin make for a nice what-if. This disc features a bunch of Prince videos, trailers and music videos.

Batman 4K: Worth It?
Batman Forever features a superb 4K scan. Superb colors and great detail will delight viewers. The demo quality is exactly the same as what I remember from when my old Blu-ray came out. This is the final version of the film. July. 8, 2019.
Does The Dark Knight Realize 4K?
The Specs. The Dark Knight, 4k Ultra HD Bluray presents the film in 2160p resolution. That's four times as large as 1080p Bluray. You have two aspect ratios: 2.4:1 or 1.78.1 for IMAX sequences. HDR10 specifications allow for increased color and contrast (viewable with 4k HDR TVs).
Did Batman Begins get shot in 4K
Nolan directed that the film be scanned in 4K (possibly to increase shadow detail retention), was given an HDR10 high dynamic range grade, and presented on Ultra HD with the proper 2.39:1 theatrical aspect ratio. Although the result is not perfect, it's still very pleasing overall. May 9, 2018.
