Suicide Squad: Special Edition (DVD)
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?]]>

As with all Ultra HD discs, you will need a special player; these will not play in a normal blu-ray player (but a normal blu-ray is also included in the set)
Right off the bad: The 4K disc does not include the Extended Cut, only the theatrical. The 1080p blu-ray does include the extended cut. There is also a 3D release of this movie which is not included (it's a separate purchase)
Suicide Squad on 4K was a mixed bag.
For a new movie, I feel that it could have looked a lot better. Like most current UHD titles, Suicide Squad was shot on high-end cameras but the effects and finished movie were mastered in 2K, meaning they upscaled that to 4K resolution. This limits the picture quality; it's better than Blu-Ray but nowhere near native 4K quality.
Right off the bat, picture quality is noticeably darker. It's not clear if this is a stylistic choice, but shots that look fine on the Blu-Ray (1080p) seem as though the brightness was lowered significantly on the 4K. Watching in a totally dark room is fine, but in any lit room it's far too dark.
Beyond that, there are additional details with the black levels; some detail is lost in the shadows and the black levels are raised a bit (to a dark grey) instead of a true black. I found that some of these issues were helped with adjusting the 4K Ultra HD Players' settings, but on a normal calibrated set the problems were very noticeable.
The picture quality would vary from shot to shot. Being filmed with a mix of film and digital, I found some cuts to look OK followed by some quick cuts that lookd GREAT. Almost all scenes did have a layer of digital noise above the picture. There were only a few moments that had a "That looks 4K" impression; the majority of shots looked as if they SHOULD HAVE been great looking, but you could easily tell the image was simply upscaled.
The HDR did add some nice saturation to some scenes (the neon moments).
I did not encounter any issues with the sound but do not have an atmos receiver; listened on a 7.1 surround setup and sounded fine. Nothing too impressive, but clear dialog and some good action scenes.
In the end:
I would probably recommend the 3D set (3D+2D+Digital HD) as it at least has a unique upgrade over the 1080p version.
If you have already bought either of the other versions (3D or 1080p Blu-Ray) I wouldn't recommend the upgrade to 4K. If you have a 4K TV and have not yet bought it, it's worth the extra few bucks to see for yourself how it looks. Reviews have been very mixed from "Great upgrade" to "Noticeable upgrade" to "Complete downgrade". I think everyone will agree the title is very dark on 4K and unless viewing it in a totally dark environment may affect viewing experience.
Everyone says that the Jocker isn't in this movie, well I disagree, he is in the movie just as much as he needed to be. After all this is not a movie about the Jocker or a Batman show. This is a show about the dangerous, damaged bad guys, and one good guy saving the world.
We bought it for the extras and the capability to play it in 4k, in which this didn't disappoint.
