American Son Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

American Son easily ranks amongst the very best video presentations released to Blu-ray under the Echo Bridge label. It's also one of the most recently made movies to fall to the studio under the Miramax banner. This 1.78:1 high definition presentation looks fantastic, generally. There's a handsome film-like texture to the image, with light, consistent grain hovering above and helping to accentuate the pure, accurate details below. The image is quite crisp and nicely defined, with only a hint of nearly missable softness to several scenes. Textures find a very nice, natural appearance and definition, from faces to clothes and all of the various backgrounds throughout the film. Colors are a little dull, but by filmmaker design. The palette is steady and even under the film's parameters. Black levels rarely cause any problem, and flesh tones are fine if not slightly pale in only a few shots. There are no major flaws or unwanted digital tweaks to be found. This is an enjoyable and rock-solid presentation from Echo Bridge that stands up against the many of the finer transfers from bigger studios.


American Son Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

American Son's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack isn't quite on the same level of excellence as the video transfer, but it's a good complimentary piece. There's a generally pure presence to music, with smooth delivery, even spacing, and gentle surround immersion. There's a satisfyingly sloppy low end pulse to in-car, bass-heavy music in one early scene, and some deeper, more naturally aggressive low end activity at a party sequence in chapter seven. Light ambient effects aren't so constant as to immerse the audience into various scenes, however. Most of the action is of the front-and-center variety, but it picks up nearly all of the important elements easily enough. Some gunplay later in the film lacks the aggressive punch and natural presence of the various weapons fired, but the basic sonic signatures prove satisfactory. Dialogue is usually even and plays back at the right levels, but it does come across as unnaturally quiet and a bit shallow in a jovial chapter two chit-chat sequence between several characters. Overall, this is a quality sound presentation from Echo Bridge.
