"Old Henry" is an action-Western about a widowed farmer and his son who warily take in a mysterious, injured man with a satchel of cash. When a posse of men claiming to be the law come for the money, the farmer must decide whom to trust. Defending against a siege of his homestead, he reveals a talent for gunslinging that surprises everyone, calling his true identity into question. (Gary Reber)

Special features included the featurette "A Look At Old Henry" (HD 08:03) and a trailer.

The 2.66:1 1080p AVC5 picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally using the Arri Alexa Mini camera system and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture's appearance is very authentic, exhibiting a realistic color palette with warm and rich hues. Fleshtones are accurately rendered. Contrast is excellent with naturally bright natural lighting from sunlight and lanterns during interior night scenes. Black levels are deep and shadow delineation is revealing. Resolution is excellent with fine detail in textures such as the wooden homestead house, both exterior and interior. Clothing is nicely textured as well as horses and even pigs, This is a very authentic and realistic Western that looks terrific. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is well crafted with realistic-sounding gunfire and Foley sound effects. Atmospherics enhance the realism and include wind and ambient effects such as birds. The orchestral score is terrific with a wide and deep soundstage and extension to the surrounds. Surround energy is enveloping but nuanced. Dynamics sound natural throughout. This is a realistic and natural-sounding soundtrack that is satisfying. (Gary Reber)
