A Prophet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Sony delivers A Prophet to Blu-ray with a startling 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. This Blu-ray springs to life with a fantastic film-like texture that's accentuated by the picture's thick layer of grain, but it also delivers on every other attribute that contributes to a pristine and cinematic home theater presentation. Detail is positively striking, even through what is oftentimes a downtrodden and cold blue- and gray-heavy color palette within the prison's walls. Still, vibrant hues sparkle during several extended outdoor scenes, every one of them lush and true with no hint of over-saturation or the dullness that accompanies the interior segments. Back to the fine detail; there aren't too many transfers that can stand toe-to-toe with A Prophet. Facial nuances -- stubble, pores, and wrinkles -- are striking, while clothes and brick and concrete walls feature impeccable texturing. Scribblings on walls and the caked-on-dirt that are ever-present companions within the prison are showcases for the amazing clarity that's visible throughout the film. Additionally, black levels are marvelous. A Prophet features exceptional shadow detail; never do the transfer's blacks threaten to overpower the image, nor do they appear unnaturally bright. The print exhibits not a single blemish, and it's absent any unwelcome elements such as banding and aliasing. A few shots do go slightly soft, but such seem inherent to the original film elements and not a fault of Sony's exemplary transfer.


A Prophet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

A Prophet debuts on Blu-ray with a strong DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The track's greatest asset is its handling of prison atmospherics; from the opening moments forward, listeners will feel surrounded by slamming and squeaky doors and inmate chatter coming from all around the soundstage. It's often loud, but not overbearing, and the track does a wonderful job in building an immersive atmosphere that's a strong asset to the film's drama. Exterior environments come to life, too, with driving rain, passing traffic, and other niceties that seamlessly integrate with the picture and flow into the listening area, reinforcing those scenes away from the prison. A few gunshots ring out with sufficient force, but the track's low end is best identified through several songs that play over the film. Music is smooth as it flows from the front channels with a transparent sense of space. For all its nice little touches, though, A Prophet is primarily a dialogue-driven picture, and while a few voices seem a bit bass-y, the spoken word never wants for clarity as it remains firmly entrenched in the center speaker. This one won't push sound systems to their limits, but A Prophet's lossless soundtrack impresses nevertheless.
