Video: How Does the Disc Look?
The 1.78:1 1080p transfer on this disc is acceptable, but not exceptional. Color accuracy seems authentic and appropriate, black levels are sturdy and deep, and detail (for the most part) is sharp and punchy, though aliasing is a common issue, and there are minimal examples of compression artifacting that pop up every now and then. The movie has a very subdued visual design - perhaps this is much of the reason the imagery here doesn't exactly pop off the screen - but it seems to look like it should on this high-definition edition.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix included here, though, is fun and bigger-than-life. The movie's more rambunctious scenes are accompanied by a wonderfully active surround presence, with fidelity always coming across dynamically, and surround channels constantly zipping to life. Dialogue is audible from start to finish, as well, and both high- and low-ends are represented cleanly. For such a meh movie, this lossless mix really delivers.
An English Dolby Digital 2.0 mix is included, as are English subtitles.
