"Twist," inspired by Charles Dickens' iconic novel "Oliver Twist," is an action-fueled crime-thriller set in contemporary London. The story follows the journey of Twist (Raff Law), a gifted graffiti artist trying to find his way after the loss of his mother. Lured into a street gang headed by the paternal Fagin (Michael Cane), Twist is attracted to the lifestyle––and to Red (Sophie Simnett), an alluring member of Fagin's crew. But when an art theft goes wrong, Twist's moral code is tested as he's caught between Fagin, the police, and a loose-cannon enforcer (Lena Headey). (Gary Reber)

Special features include the featurette "The Artful Dodger: Twist's Underworld" (HD 25:45), upfront previews and a digital code.

The 2.39:1 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. The color palette is vivid with nicely saturated hues that often pop on-screen. Fleshtones are perfectly natural. Contrast is excellent with deep blacks and revealing shadow delineation. The picture is generally bright and well lit. Resolution is superb with fine detail exhibited throughout, including facial features, clothes, and object textures. This is a colorful picture that is eye popping throughout. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack features a virtually constant lively score with a wide soundstage and enveloping surrounds. Dialogue is a bit forward sounding and at times wanting in spatial integration. Atmospherics are realistic, and there is lots of running and jumping action and accompanying sound effects.This is full of action and crime theft with intriguing action delivered with an aggressive holosonic® soundfield. (Gary Reber)
