    Aircraft Carrier: Guardian of the Seas (UHD Blu-ray) review

    Plot
    The mission to protect and defend the world’s oceans has become more complex and challenging in recent years, and naval aviation has become increasingly vital to success. One of the greatest engineering feats in the history of warfare, the modern Nimitz-class carrier is a masterpiece of technology, and the flagship of the fleet. With RIMPAC — the world’s largest and most comprehensive maritime training exercise — providing a stunning visual context for the story, find yourself aboard the USS Ronald Reagan alongside the 5,000 highly skilled sea and air personnel conducting flight operations in the midst of the simulated war exercises taking place there. Rarely has there been a topic so visually suited and compelling for IMAX ®.

    My Thoughts
    Shout! Factory has been releasing some really good IMAX documentaries over the past year in 4K and I’ve found great enjoyment with them. The video quality is always off the charts and I learn a thing or two along the way. In this one, you get to see how the aircraft carrier has evolved over time and how it changed the way battles on the sea are fought. I’ve gotten to tour a couple of aircraft carriers over the years and they are an engineering marvel to see firsthand.

    Video 10/10 (MVC)

    Audio 9/10 (Dolby Atmos)


    Special Features:

    • Audience Testimonials
    • F-35 vs. Bugatti vs. Human Cannonball
    • Usain Bolt vs. Giraffe vs. Nuclear Carrier
    • F-35 Navy Selects Reel
    • Aircraft Carrier Trailer & TV Spots
    • Blu-ray + Digital Copy





    Conclusion
    This is an interesting documentary that’s filled with eye candy. The shots on the open sea look amazing and seeing and hearing a jet takeoff from the carrier’s surface is a sight to behold. Recommended.
