A fast-talking lawyer (Banderas) transforms his body and takes a vow of silence while working tirelessly to hunt down the murderers responsible for the deaths of his wife and daughter. And he has his revenge. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the featurette "Speaking Out" (HD 12:30), upfront previews and an UltraViolet digital copy.

The 1.84:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. Sharpness and clarity are excellent, as well as contrast, with deep blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Night scenes and rain-drenched scenes are mesmerizing. A WOW! segment appears between 00:13:11 and 00:13:26. Color fidelity is excellent with rich and warm vibrant hues, always appearing perfectly natural. Fleshtones are naturally rendered throughout. Fine detail is exemplary, especially in close-ups of facial features, skin features and lines, hair, clothing and objects. Lighting effects effectively highlight resolution with natural intensities. This is a terrific-looking picture with engaging visuals and production design. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is nicely dynamic with superb atmospherics and sonic nuances. Sound effects enhance the action sequences. Rain is extremely natural sounding, which is heard in a few segments. Deep bass, in all channels, is nicely energized, effectively enhancing the suspense with .1 LFE accentuating the intensity. The orchestral score extends across the soundstage and aggressively envelops the surround. Fidelity throughout is good. Dialogue is for the most part intelligible but at times a bit muffled. Overall, this is a great thriller soundtrack with compelling dynamics and realism. (Gary Reber)
