Agora Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.36:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Alejandro Amenabar's Agora arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Brothers-France.

This is an impressive high-definition transfer. Fine object detail is excellent, clarity pleasing and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. The color-scheme does not disappoint either - yellows, blues, greens, reds, browns, blacks and whites look lush and natural. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not an issue of concern. I also did not see any traces of heavy noise-filtering, aliasing and banding. Additionally, blown through a digital projector the high-definition transfer conveys outstanding depth and tightness. Finally, I did not see any flecks, scratches, marks, stains, or dirt to report in this review. All in all, this is a very strong, competent high-definition transfer. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Agora Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are four different audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French Dolby TrueHD 5.1, English Dolby TrueHD 5.1, French Dolby TrueHD 2.0 and English Dolby TrueHD 2.0. For the record, Warner Brothers have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the image frame and the black bar below it.

The English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track is terrific. The bass is potent and punchy, the rear channels intelligently used and the high-frequencies not overdone. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable and exceptionally easy to follow. Dario Marianelli's fantastic music score also benefits tremendously from the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track. In fact, some of the most memorable scenes in Agora are the ones where Marianelli's score comes alive.

I tested a few scenes with the English Dolby TrueHD 2.0 track to see how it compares with the English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track. Generally speaking, the Dolby TrueHD 2.0 track lacks the depth and fluidity of the English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track. The English Dolby TrueHD 2.0 definitely does not enhance Marianelli's score as well as the English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track does.
