Alpha Dog Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Alpha Dog appeared on HD DVD in early 2007 and Universal has just now gotten around to bringing it out on Blu-ray, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that may not be eye-gougingly lifelike, but definitely fulfills all of the film's intentions. The best news is that the image doesn't appear to be tampered with at all; a thin grain structure is intact, edge enhancement is nowhere to be seen, and color is natural and balanced. Likewise, I didn't spot any odd compression anomalies. The picture has a rich, filmic texture, and clarity is generally very strong, with ample detail visible in both close-ups and longer shots. Most of the film has a grim color palette—especially the parts that take place outside at night or in dimly lit interiors—but there are occasional flashes of vividness, like the desert outside Palm Springs and daylight poolside scenes. Contrast is nice and tight, and while black levels are usually solid, some of the nighttime scenes look a bit flat and grayish in order to retain shadow detail. Perhaps the only downside to seeing Alpha Dog in high definition is that the fat suit Sharon Stone wears at the end of the film looks incredibly fake and her make-up overly harsh. Of course, I can't dock the transfer for that, but it is somewhat jarring.


Alpha Dog Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Alpha Dog's appearance on Blu-ray is accompanied by a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that's mostly hip hop and dialogue driven. There's less out-and-out violence and action in the film than you'd think, so there's really not much else for this track to do. The rear channels don't get a whole lot of play, with few cross-channel movements or effects that require directional precision, but the back of the soundfield sometimes swells with ambience, like drunken party chatter or outdoorsy sounds. Most of the intensity comes from up front, as characters scream at each other and rap beats or the occasional metal riff blare loudly. While it has definite presence, the music is sometimes overly abrasive and shrill. This seems intentional, though, a way of underscoring the insanity of what's happening on screen. Dialogue, however, is always intelligible, riding high enough in the mix to never get swamped in the surrounding sounds.
