A Time to Kill

 (1996)

A Time to Kill Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

John Grisham's bestseller A Time to Kill hits the screen with incendiary force, directed by Joel Schumacher (Batman Forever, The Client). Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew McConaughey and Kevin Spacey portray the principals in a murder trial that brings a small Mississippi town's racial tensions to the flashpoint. Amid a frenzy of activist marches, Klan terror, media clamor and brutal riots, an unseasoned but idealistic young attorney mounts a stirring courtroom battle for justice.

A Time to Kill Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Time to Kill features a warm and inviting 1080p/VC-1 transfer that outshines most other Warner catalog releases of late. With bold, summery colors, the palette is quite striking, lending itself to vivid primaries, natural (albeit slightly oversatured) skintones, and deep blacks. Contrast is spot on, enhancing the already filmic image with a dose of convincing depth and dimensionality. It's also nice to see that fine detail has been vastly improved in the years since the soft and murky days of standard definition. Edges are sharp, the notes strewn about Brigance's desk are legible, and background objects like tightly packed books are more perusable than they once were. I did encounter a few soft shots along the way (mainly during McConaughey's closing argument when the camera turns to other faces in the crowded courtroom), but I blame the original print rather than the transfer itself. In fact, in a direct comparison, the Blu-ray disc throughly trounced its DVD counterpart, leaving little doubt as to whether the transfer was worth the cost of admission. Noise reduction (DNR) and edge enhancement have been intermittently applied, but I'm relieved to report that the studio's use of digital manipulation is minor and unobtrusive this time around. Distant skin and fabric textures are still relatively refined, halos are thin and oftentimes not present at all, and overall clarity remains dramatically improved. Thankfully, the cluttered, noisy transfer of yesteryear is gone, leaving a polished, artifact-free beauty in its place. The image is extremely clean -- I didn't catch sight of any distracting mosquito noise, macroblocking, crush, banding, or aliasing.

In the end, videophiles may muster a complaint or two, but A Time to Kill stacks up well alongside other notable catalog releases on the market. While Warner's digital manipulation suggests the transfer isn't entirely faithful to its source, fans should still be more than excited to see how wonderful the film looks in high definition.


A Time to Kill Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Time to Kill tops off its AV package with a stirring Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track that effortlessly draws fans into its remarkable soundfield with a believable approximation of several Mississippi locales. First and foremost, dialogue is clean and nicely prioritized across the front channels -- testimonies actually offer a rewarding listening experience as hushed whispers and crowd chatter erupts from every direction anytime the case takes an unexpected turn. Even when Haley's case is business as usual, the sound designers have populated their interiors with a meticulous soundscpae. To that end, subtle use of the rear speakers results in properly enhanced courtroom acoustics, a variety of lingering echoes in the meeting halls, and the distant presence of a naturalistic orchestra in the open Southern fields. More importantly, pans are smooth and transparent, supportive low-end bass tones are reliable and robust, and a surprising number of standout sonic sequences remind this conversational affair what it's capable of. I had to deal with some lackluster directionality in a few key sequences and ignore some third act normalization irregularities, but, all things considered, A Time to Kill sounds just as good as it looks.
