Independence Day was re-released to Blu-ray only weeks prior to the UHD version’s debut. Fox’s 1080p presentation really nailed down the image quality. It was practically perfect, leaving precious little room to complain or, seemingly, improve. While the 2160p UHD is more a refinement of an already excellent image rather than a total reworking, the results are clearly very strong. The UHD captures the same basic essence as the 1080p Blu-ray. Grain structure is refined and even, yielding a gorgeous cinematic texturing. Details are deeply informative and very well textured. From standard faces and clothes to more refined details, like dust and fine scratches on the biplane, there’s no mistaking the transfer’s ability to reveal every inch of detail in a naturally opportunistic manner. Color balance is terrific across the film’s varied filters, regardless of time of day, interior or exterior, low light or high sun. It is, at-a-glance, the mirror image of the 1080p transfer in terms of overall excellence.
It’s the direct A-B comparisons where things begin to get more interesting. The UHD is certainly more refined, yielding finer, if not only extremely so, details. Take a look at the President in bed around the 5:20 mark. Skin texturing is more apparent on the UHD; the Blu-ray lacks the finesse and finer points of definition on the face, favoring a markedly smoother appearance. The image is also significantly lighter; there’s a rather severe orange push on the Blu-ray, where the UHD is much cooler, evident in everything: skin, the T-shirt, the upholstery on the bed’s headboard. Skip ahead a minute or so to where the President is eating breakfast. The yellow rug is punchier on the Blu-ray, whereas the UHD favors a more neutral look about it. Another great spot to compare both color and detail — the former in particular — comes about halfway through the movie at the 1:13:20 mark. Will Smith, wearing a green military tank top, stands behind a bright orange parachute and in front of a clear and bright blue sky. First, the increase in material detail is plainly obvious, on the parachute in particular but also on Smith’s shirt and skin. On the UHD, the colors are significantly more saturated. The orange is bolder, as is the sky, both by a wide and immediately noticeable margin. Whether one or the other is technically “correct” is up for debate, but there’s no mistaking that the UHD’s HDR-influenced vibrance, combined with the increase in detail, is striking. Such contrasts hold throughout the movie.
Both versions look terrific. Are Blu-ray owners missing out? Yes. In a noticeable way that makes the Blu-ray look “bad” on its own? No way. The UHD is certainly a step up in terms of detail and clarity and raw cinematic texturing. Colors may be altered, but they’re much more refined in places and punchier where they count. The UHD comes out on top.
