Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Typical of a DCU animated feature high definition presentation, The Dark Knight Returns is striking but flawed. Fortunately, its flaws -- faint artifacting, slight to moderate banding, hints of aliasing, and intermittent softness -- trace back to the original animation, not Warner's 1080p/AVC-encoded efforts. On a positive note, macroblocking is only noticeable on occasion (and only if you're scrutinizing the picture); stair-stepping involves static horizontal lines inherent to the background images; what little aliasing there is only makes a nuisance of itself here and there (the worst of which appears in a pan of the red-visored mutants early in the film); and the "camera" moves that sometimes distort, soften or pixelate the image (zoom shots in particular) are short-lived and easy to overlook. Otherwise, there isn't much cause for alarm. Colors are as bleak, grim, brave or bold as they need to be, primaries erupt through the shadows beautifully, black levels are inky, and contrast, while oppressively dark by design, is satisfying and consistent, even as night falls or darkness closes in. Detail is terrific too, with every nuance of the movie's animation and CG elements perfectly preserved and presented. All told, fans of Warner's DCU Blu-ray releases won't be surprised by anything here... the good, the bad or the ugly. Thankfully, the good is pretty great, the bad isn't all that bad, and the ugly is tough to spot.


Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Batmobile assaults, rowdy mobs, pit fights, murderous crime sprees, rickety roller-coasters, superpowered showdowns and nuclear fallout. The Dark Knight Returns has it all, including a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that handles Gotham City's calamity and unrest in stride. Dialogue is intelligible and carefully prioritized in the mix, voices are decently (but not perfectly) grounded in the soundscape, and dynamics are more than sufficient for the task at hand. The LFE channel, meanwhile, cranks up the intensity of the battles spectacularly (hand to hand, vehicle to army and super-punch to super-punch), sinking its all into every blow, explosion, roaring engine, machine gun burst, charging horse, collapsing staircase, thunderous clash and struggling heartbeat. The rear speakers aren't quite so aggressive -- blame the movie's at-times two-dimensional sound design -- but they fill Gotham and its shadows with enough ambience and atmosphere to pull their weight. Directional effects are assertive and precise on the whole, pans are smooth, and the soundfield is reasonably immersive, particularly when the action scenes in the second half of the film crank up the intensity. I doubt The Dark Knight Returns could sound much better than it does here. Fuller, more encompassing sound design would help, but that has little to do with Warner's lossless efforts.
