African Cats Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Disney's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is a beautifully rendered beast that captures every strand of hair, blade of high grass and distant wildebeest in a thousand-strong herd with spectacular clarity. Colors are warm and natural, black cheetah spots and sunbeat shadows are deep and satisfying, and the plains of the Savannah are brimming with suitably baked (at-times inherently bleached) earthtones, be it by way of a muddy river bank, rustling tree leaves or bristling mane. Detail is also quite extraordinary and hardly a shot goes by that doesn't revel in finely textured fur, crisp underbrush and sharp, wonderfully defined edges. Moreover, it all comes to glorious high definition life without any ringing, aliasing or smearing to speak of. Nighttime scenes are few and far between, yes, but those that find their way into the mix suffer from the usual oddities associated with under-cloak-of-darkness documentary camerawork (increased noise, reduced clarity and the like). And I did notice the slightest hint of banding. But nothing else about the presentation left in me in anything less than complete awe. I can't imagine African Cats and its jaw-dropping photography looking any better than it does here.


African Cats Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

While African Cats is, for all intents and purposes, a more traditional documentary that hinges on seemingly omnipresent narration, Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and the subsequent soundfield it creates boasts a surprising fullness; an untamed realism that rarely falters. Samuel L. Jackson's voice is strong and well-centered throughout, no matter how much hushed intensity he brandishes. The rear speakers embrace the difficult lives of the lions and cheetahs as well; desperate mothers careen through wind-whipped grass, lionesses bear down on fleeing zebras in a fantastic display of deadly channel-to-channel speed and ferocity, herds of wildebeest thunder past and pour in from every direction, cubs roll and frolic across the soundstage, and the rising murmur of the Savannah surrounds the listener at almost every turn. Directional effects aren't astonishing but they are convincing (Sita's search for her missing cubs is worth the price of admission alone), pans are slick and stealthy, and dynamics are quite impressive on the whole. The LFE channel is given plenty of opportunity to pull its weight and does so with tremendous ease. Hooves shake the ground, roars dominate, a violent storm earns its keep, surging rivers sound rightfully dangerous, Nicholas Hooper's score has a hearty kick, and each lion hunt and showdown is a powerful sonic show-stealer. Suffice it to say, African Cats' lossless mix doesn't disappoint.
