Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Simplicity is the number one aim of Promised Land’s A/V presence on Blu-ray, and keeping with this, the 1.85:1 1080p transfer included here is perfectly appropriate. There are bits of marginally noticeable aliasing and banding here and there, though you really need to keep an eye out for them to catch ‘em. Mostly, this presentation showcases lush, wonderfully balanced color accuracy, detail quality that is punchy and sharp wherever you turn, and black levels that start dark and stay that way throughout.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
Again, it may sound like a cop-out, but Promised Land sounds just like it should: clear and uncomplex. Dialogue is always audible, Danny Elfman’s breezy score has a lush and hazy feel to it, and atmospherics and effects seem true-to-design and clean. This isn’t the most adventurous or provocative track in the world, but it certainly appears to do its movie justice.
A Spanish DTS 5.1 track is included, as are English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles.
