Babylon A.D.

 (2008)

Babylon A.D. Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

In the darkly futuristic world of Babylon A.D., the rules are simple: kill or be killed. Toorop, a ruthless mercenary hired to smuggle a mysterious young woman from the post-apocalyptic confines of Eastern Europe to the glittering megalopolis of New York City. Hunted at every turn, Toorop spirits his charge across a nightmarish wasteland only to uncover a shocking secret that will bring the entire world to its knees. Eye-popping action and mind-blowing science fiction clash head-on in this hard-edged thriller, where the only rule is survival.

Babylon A.D. Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Fox escorts Babylon A.D. onto Blu-ray with a high quality 2.35:1, 1080p transfer. The depth and detail on display throughout the film is quite good, and like many Fox releases, the picture quality is far above average. The worn, torn down, unkempt locales seen throughout the first part of the film reveal incredible detail that brings the lifeless sets to life in high definition, each one offering plenty of information to absorb. It's not eye candy, to be sure, as it often appears a bit dim, dull, and devoid of bright colors, but the image is strong and lifelike for what it has to offer. Detail in close-up shots of Vin Diesel's face reveal a tremendous amount of information. The texture of his face, the rough facial hair, and the various scars and tattoos bring the character to life. Blacks are dark, deep, and true, with no apparent loss of detail in the darker corners. Later in the film, various locales contrast well to the cold, desolate, lifeless, dreary settings in Eastern Europe and Russia. The purity of the Alaska frontier and the advanced technology of New York City, including its clean lines and well-appointed interiors, look sharp and rich, all the locales holding up superbly in this 1080p transfer. Grain is present over the image, but not intrusively, and it lends to the transfer a high-quality cinematic feel. Flesh tones are also spot-on accurate. While the quality of the movie may be in question, this transfer is not. Babylon A.D., as expected, is another winner from 20th Century Fox.


Babylon A.D. Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Babylon A.D. delivers a powerful sonic experience, courtesy of another stellar DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack from 20th Century Fox. This mix makes excellent use of the entire soundstage; for example, distant gunshots during the opening moments ring out nicely with a good sense of depth and distance to them, emanating here and there around the room. Likewise, as helicopters fly by, the rotors thump and the sound moves effortlessly across the soundstage. The hip-hop music that accompanies the opening credits thumps and pounds to great effect, positively and forcefully filling the room with the loud yet precise beats. Explosions heard throughout the film positively rock the sound system. The disc also excels during the film's quieter scenes. Oftentimes, there is subtle ambience to be heard; the rustling of leaves in chapter four or a bustling street scene in chapter five, for example, add a nice touch to draw the audiences into the film, sonically. There is a good amount of ambience and support in the back channels, and from the smaller nuances to the hardest-hitting action pieces, the rear speakers receive quite the workout. Most every scene is filled with some sort of excellent sound presence, another of the best being a club scene in Russia in chapter seven that features incredibly deep and thumping lows that effortlessly place listeners inside the club. Dialogue reproduction is always clear and precise, never drowned out by ambience, music, or effects. Much like the video, the quality of the soundtrack overshadows that of the film, and Babylon A.D. is another in an ever-growing list of high quality lossless soundtracks now available to be enjoyed on Blu-ray.
