Act of Valor

 (2012)

Act of Valor Blu-ray delivers great video and reference-quality audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home.

Act of Valor Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

If you needed additional proof that small digital SLRs can be potent filmmaking tools, look no further. Act of Valor was shot exclusively with Canon 5D Mark II cameras—which can be bought off the shelf for a little over two grand—and in general, the film's 1080p/AVC-encoded Blu-ray presentation looks fantastic. There are a few scenes where the combination of shallow depth of field and imprecise focusing create a noticeably soft image, but otherwise the picture is quite sharp. The details of the SEALS' weaponry and uniforms, the textures of their camouflaged faces, the surfaces of bullet-riddled walls and vehicles—all are finely rendered. The color grading is great too; jungle foliage is a dense green, earthy neutrals are rich, skin tones are balanced, and most scenes feature a warm yellowish cast that adds some heat to the image. And while you'll spot some blown-out highlights and occasionally crushed blacks, the contrast curve is usually spot-on. Source noise and compression noise are minimal—even in darker sequences—but you will see some slight aliasing on fine parallel lines, along with a few fleeting instances of color banding and some mild rolling shutter issues. Nothing distracting, though. What impresses most here is how a prosumer-grade digital camera can produce a picture that's nearly indistinguishable from one made by more expensive rigs like the Red One or Arri Alexa. Talk about democratization.


Act of Valor Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Even better is Act of Valor's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, a hard-hitting mix that effectively puts you right in the middle of the action. And since the film is basically all action, you're getting an almost non-stop sonic onslaught. Of course, you can expect loud gunshots galore—spraying in every direction, practically punching holes through the soundfield—and massive explosions that ripple outward, sending debris flying through the space around your head. But you'll also hear near-constant ambience, from wind during a skydiving infiltration and crickets humming at dusk, to the clamor and chaos of the many firefights. Nathan Furst's score generally complements the action—rather than overpowering it—and like the effects, the music has all of the range and oomph and clarity that it needs. Throughout the insanity, dialogue—with few exceptions—remains clear and easily understood. Conversations in languages other than English feature forced subtitles in a goofy military-esque typeface, and the disc also includes optional English SDH and Spanish subs for that might need or want them. No complaints here whatsoever—a first-rate rock 'em, sock 'em audio track.
