Video: How Does the Disc Look?
This 1.78:1 1080p transfer is true to its vision, I suppose, but it's not entirely technically sound. The animated movie's color palette seems true and authentically replicated, but black levels waver in intensity, and aliasing and banding are serious offenders here - there's no reason a film this new should be hampered in this way. I'm sure Damnation looks better here than it would in standard-def, but the movie definitely doesn't look like a million bucks on this Blu-ray debut.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
The movie's DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix, though, is a barnburner. Aggressive, boomy, and engaging, this surround track offers up crystal-clear dialogue as well as rambunctious activity that isn't afraid to infiltrate surround channels. Fidelity is strong and panoramic, to boot - both high- and low-ends sound crisp and lovely here - and the .1 LFE channel on this presentation really gets a strong workout. Effective and fun.
French and Portuguese DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio and Spanish and Thai Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes are included, as are English SDH, Chinese, French, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai subtitles.
