Argo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Argo features a faithful, notably filmic 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer with very little to criticize. There's some ringing to be found, sure, but nothing too severe. And the archive footage peppered throughout the film often amounts to a standard definition eyesore; forgivable considering any and every anomaly traces back to various late '70s, early '80s video sources. Which leaves us with an altogether sound, albeit purposefully subdued presentation, backed by striking desaturated colors, relatively lifelike skintones, smoky but satisfying black levels and finely tuned contrast. Grain is intact as well, without anything in the way of unevenness or errant noise, and detail is quite strong. Edges are nicely defined, textures are natural and reasonably well-resolved (even in intentionally aged or distressed shots that exhibit a fair bit of softness), and delineation is spot on. There also isn't any significant artifacting, banding, aliasing or crush on display, meaning Argo's Blu-ray debut falls perfectly in line with its theatrical presentation.


Argo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is more involving than I anticipated, and quite a bit more aggressive. LFE output brings weight and intensity to scenes that benefit greatly from both -- enraged crowds surge, violence erupts, tear gas canisters launch with heavy thooms, gunshots thunder, angry hands pound against passing vans, security personnel give chase and airplane engines roar to life -- and every low-end effect is bolstered by raw power and presence. The rear speakers do their part too, immersing the listener in those enraged crowds, cramped vehicles and escaping planes with pinpoint directional effects, convincing pans and a fully enveloping soundfield. Despite the prevailing chaos, though, dialogue remains clean, clear and diligently prioritized at all times, without a lost or buried line of any importance. Alexandre Desplat's score rounds out the soundscape, and is privy to the same meticulous prioritization and implementation as every other element, coming together to create a lossless experience that further blurs the line between fiction and reality.
