Cornelius, with help from Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis) a taxi driver and former secret agent, and Leeloo (Mila Jovovich) an alien in the shape of a beautiful, orange haired woman, set off on a myriad of adventures in an attempt to save humanity and fight the horrendous Zorg (Gary Oldman).

This release, on the other hand, has been done properly! The picture is sharp, but still includes grain that isn't distracting, and brings out details that you didn't notice before. The colours pop brightly, creating a stunning new visual pallet that is still faithful to the cinematic presentation, only enhanced. The new Atmos soundtrack has cleared up the centre channel and ditched the tinny distortions that haunted the previous release, bringing with it deep, meaty basses that really make action sequences enjoyable. Bravo!
No spicial features at all.
Keep the old blu-ray release.
The movie is fantastic and seeing in crisp 4K quality is a treat. It also sounds like they’ve done work with the audio, which added more to the immersion.
I have to say, though, I was expecting a bit more with the release, itself.
The original DVD’s I have had a separate disc for a bunch of special features and I was hoping we’d AT LEAST have those features, and praying maybe extras that they never released may have been added. Maybe even something like a little interview with Luc Besson or some cast/crew, that they usually do many years later, when they look back at the movie.
It’s literally just the movie on the disc and nothing else. Luckily I do still have my original DVD with all the features, but I was hoping after waiting so long for an official UK Blu-Ray release, that it would be a full package.
If you’re not bothered for behind the scenes features, or you still have your old copies of the movie with those features, then I would definitely recommend this.
If you are someone like me who likes to watch behind the scenes features, then I would advise you order a different version which includes them and possibly get this version later, or if you can order both, even better!
