"Rumble" takes place in a world where monster wrestling is a global sport. Teenage Winnie (Geraldine Viswanathan) teams up with a lovable underdog monster (Will Arnett) in hopes of training him to be a champion. The duo learns the value of moving to your own groove and paving your own unique path to success. (Gary Reber)

Special features include five featurettes: "The Super-Seccret Playbook" (HD 04:00), "The Mon-Stars Of Wrestling" (HD 04:40), "Salsa With Rayburn, Jr." (HD 02:21), "Massive Monsters, Wresting Movies, And Dazzling Dances" (HD 05:14) and "Four Rounds In The Animation Ring" (HD 01:52); five deleted scenes (HD 04:42) and a Movies Anywhere digital copy.

The 2.39:1 2160p HEVC/H.265 Ultra HD picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, was digitally animated and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate.. The picture is sharp and clear throughout. Abundantly colorful, the color palette is vivid and saturated with warm and rich hues. Flesh tones capture real life intensities and shadings. Contrast is excellent throughout with natural black levels, convincing shadows and bright whites. Resolution is revealing of fine textural detail, especially during closeups of the monster wrestlers. The wrestling monsters are fun imagery as well as their movements. This is a superb visual experience with wonderful characterization. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is bombastic as it pertains to the wrestling monsters pounding movements. Sound effects are energized and provide effective transient attack, especially in the ring. Deep bass extension gains power as the intensities increase with the wrestling monsters shaking the ground they walk (and dance) on with frequencies that can extend to sub-25 Hz. Atmospherics and sound effects, such as audience roars ,fill the soundfield. Surround energy is strong throughout. The music provides support that envelops the soundfield. ADR dialogue is intelligible with realistic spatial integration. The action is fast pace in the ring and dynamic sounding for exciting monster wrestling fun. (Gary Reber)
