2012 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

2012 arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p, 2.39:1-framed transfer that's a treat for the eyes but not quite on the same level of excellence as the accompanying lossless soundtrack. Aside from slight visible banding in a few select shots, there's little room for complaint with this one. 2012 boasts incredibly rich and detailed blacks throughout, and the film's many darker scenes look extraordinary as a sense of depth and fine detailing both remain intact. Indeed, fine detail is impressive throughout the film's lengthy runtime; even the opening scene in the film that sees Adrian Helmsley descend into an underground Indian mining facility to learn of the coming doom features rich textures on metallic and other, harsher surfaces, though the film truly sparkles in above-ground and brighter locales. The special effects-laden locales and vistas remain sharp and clear throughout; whether distance shots of mountains or close-ups of cracking pavement, the transfer boasts rich details and textures and, even more impressive, the line between "real" and "effect" is almost always seamlessly blurred. The disaster scenes deliver intricate renderings of collapsing structures and all the minutia that one would expect to accompany such scenes, including massive amounts of finely-rendered debris and human bodies being tossed about. Even distant objects, such as cars rolling off crumbling bridges and roadways, are easily discernible and identifiable even at moderate-to-great distances. Additionally, colors are bold and natural throughout whether in brighter or darker scenes; no one shade appears as overbearing or, on the other end of the scale, poorly-realized or faded, and flesh tones also retain neutral and natural shades throughout the spectrum of ethnicities that appear in the film. 2012's Blu-ray transfer appears in pristine condition, with no visible scratches or debris, and a fine layer of film grain accompanies what is another strongly-realized and film-like release from Sony.


2012 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

2012 splashes onto Blu-ray with an exquisite DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Suffice it to say, 2012's Blu-ray audio presentation leaves most every other soundtrack in the dust, and there's rarely a dull moment to be heard, not to mention the more intense disaster and destruction scenes that positively rock the listening area to its foundation and leave every speaker in the 5.1 setup begging for mercy. This masterpiece of sound uses the entire stage to wonderful effect; surround speakers go ballistic, the fronts handle primary cues with unsurpassed ease and clarity, and the low end is as tight and invigorating as they come. Musical delivery is just one of the track's many strengths; the subtle yet haunting opening piece is delivered with a wonderfully precise low end and pinpoint clarity as it maneuvers through the soundstage and sets a wonderful tone for the movie that's never as scary or relevant as the music suggests, but does befit the material on a base level very well. Directional and surround effects are seamlessly delivered throughout; helicopters buzz through the sky in several scenes and by extension tear through the listening area with a prodigious presence, while the roar of jet engines send a screaming force through the soundstage that's as marvelously real and precise as they come. More subtle atmospherics add a sense of space and realism to the track, and again each effect is meticulously placed and realistically implemented into the overall sound mix; whether chirping birds, buzzing insects, or the rumblings and constant hum of a jet engine as heard inside its belly as it hurtles towards a safe location, all spruce the track up and create a sonic environment that consistently places the listener in the middle of every scene. Of course, it's 2012's massive-scale destruction sequences that define the track. Listeners can rest assured that every major disaster is packed with sonic goodness, from incredible bass to a symphony of surround activity that's all delivered with a clarity and precision that practically fools the senses into believing that the world is indeed collapsing all around and with an alarming accompanying collection of sound effects. Also featuring exceptional dialogue reproduction, 2012 delivers a dazzling and completely immersive listen that certainly suits the film and makes this a new reference-standard audio presentation.
