Video: How Does the Disc Look?
The 2.40:1 1080p transfer on Officer Down's Blu-ray debut is crisp, though not quite as fully finessed as home theater enthusiasts might expect. Shot digitally, the movie appears in high-def with solid detail quality and consistent black levels, though detail accuracy is perhaps a bit hit-and-miss (some shots are definitely hampered with smear). But compression artifacting and aliasing/banding are not major issues, and while this isn't maybe the most accomplished 1080p transfer to ever hit the market, it certainly represents its source material well.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
Ditto with the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track here. This isn't a very adventurous or provocative mix, but dialogue is represented cleanly and audibly, and music has a nice, full feel to it. Surrounds kick in every once in a while to nice effect (especially in terms of atmospherics), and fidelity - while not wholly dynamic - definitely captures high- and low-ends appropriately. Totally fine.
English SDH and Spanish subtitles are included.
