Age of Heroes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Age of Heroes is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Entertainment One with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. The film suffers from inconsistent contrast which isn't a big deal when we're in the various European climes, but which becomes an issue once we're thrust into the nearly all-white environment of Norway. While the whites never bloom in this presentation, there's a milky sameness to the various lighter shades here which at least partially leads to an anemic looking presentation that assumes a soft ambience simply because fine detail can't be made out in the blanched look of the film. This tendency is overcome in the close-ups, which do in fact reveal some excellent fine detail, especially in the weathered (and ultimately pretty bloody) faces of the combatants. Some of the nighttime shots also suffer from poor contrast and inconsistent black levels, and while there's little crush per se, there's also fairly poor shadow detail, something that makes some of the nighttime battle sequences hard to make out. (One sequence featuring a hand-on-hand fight between one of the heroes and a German was so hard to make out I actually thought the reverse outcome to what actually happened had occurred, until subsequent events proved what actually had occurred). Colors overall in this film are quite subdued, but look generally accurate, and the fleeting use of CGI, while not breathtaking, is certainly acceptable.


Age of Heroes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Age of Heroes features two 5.1 audio options, a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix and a standard lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. The DTS mix is extremely forceful and features a wealth of LFE which assaults the listener from the first visceral battle sequence and which becomes especially impressive in the film's final act, when a series of desperate battles erupts. Discrete channel utilization is offered here, with various machine guns and grenade blasts clearly emanating from the sides and rear. Dialogue is always crisp and clear, even in the busiest battle sequences, and effects, including some quieter environmental ones like wind and the sound of the unit moving across snow, are also well done and frequently nicely placed around the soundfield. The film doesn't have a lot of score, but the few cues are artfully mixed into the proceedings and never intrude on the overall well prioritized mix of dialogue and effects. Fidelity is excellent throughout, with similarly excellent dynamic range.
