A Scanner Darkly

 (2006)

A Scanner Darkly Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and mediocre audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Set in a not-too-distant future where America has lost its "war" on drugs, Fred, an undercover cop, is one of many people hooked on the popular drug, Substance D, which causes its users to develop split personalities. Fred is obsessed with taking down Bob, a notorious drug dealer, but due to his Substance D addiction, he does not know that he is also Bob.

A Scanner Darkly Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

A Scanner Darkly is presented in 1080p high definition within a 2.35:1 frame. As I stated above, one of the main attractions of this film is the unique animation style, and this Blu-ray disc recreates it to perfection. This is a wholly digital to digital transfer, and the result is a pristine image that will wow you from beginning to end. No hallucinations or smoke and mirrors are needed here to improve the image quality. Colors are vibrant and black levels are spot on. The animation lines are smooth and the print is in perfect condition. Despite not being a fan of the look of the film, it's reproduction here is top-notch. Had it not been for the animation, I would have been fooled into thinking I was witnessing this live rather than on my television screen. Honestly, there is little to say about the transfer except that it is five star material that should satisfy even the harshest image critic.


A Scanner Darkly Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

As per their norm, Warner has foregone a high definition soundtrack in favor of a low bitrate, DVD quality Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack running at 640 kbps. This is a mostly disappointing aural experience, however. Dialogue sounds tiny at times. I had to crank the volume past normal levels to really hear it. Surrounds were in use far too infrequently and as a result the audio will not help immerse the viewer into the world of A Scanner Darkly. The best aspect of this track is that it moves the film along without drawing too much attention to itself. That's both good and bad. You won't be distracted from the story by any real "wow" moments, but the hinderance is that it never does anything to suck you into the film. Fortunately, despite the lack of a true high definition soundtrack, this compressed audio track is not a total loss on this Blu-ray. The positives include fine separation across the front soundstage and effects that pan seamlessly from one speaker to the next across the front, mimicking the on screen action well.. A Scanner Darkly relies totally on the visual presentation and story to draw you in, and that's a shame. This track rates as mediocre at best.
