Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Typical of a DCU animated feature high definition presentation, The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 is striking but flawed. Its flaws, though -- faint artifacting, slight to moderate banding, and hints of aliasing -- seem to trace back to the original animation, not Warner's 1080p/AVC-encoded efforts. Thankfully, the artifacting is only noticeable on occasion (and even then, only if you're scrutinizing the picture); the banding isn't all that distracting, and when it is (during the first fight between Batman and the Mutant leader) it tends to involve static horizontal lines inherent to the background image; and 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). Otherwise, there isn't much to complain about. Colors are as bleak, grim or vivid as needed, primaries pop, black levels are inky and contrast, while oppressively dark by design, is satisfying and consistent, even as night falls or shadows close in. Detail is terrific too, with every nuance of the movie's hand-drawn animation and CG elements reproduced to perfection. As far as the encode is concerned, there isn't much to worry over either. Fans of Warner's DCU Blu-ray releases won't be surprised by anything here. The good, the bad or the ugly. Fortunately, the good is pretty great, the bad isn't all that bad, and the ugly is tough to spot.


Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is true to Part 1's sound design. That sound design just isn't the all-out sonic assault it could -- I'd argue should -- be. Rear speaker activity is my biggest qualm. Even when Batman is rolling into the Mutant basecamp in a souped up Batmo... tank, firing to his heart's content, there isn't much in the way of rear speaker aggression, directional depth or soundfield immersion. It isn't underwhelming per se (it's still reasonably loud and rowdy), but it doesn't match the intensity of the events unfolding on screen or the prowess that might come with a live-action adaptation. Nor is it the only scene that sounds a bit too front-heavy. That said, everything else comes through nicely. The LFE channel hits hard and doesn't let up, throwing its weight behind every meaty punch, cannon blast, explosion and general unruliness the movie has to offer. Dynamics are decidedly effective too, as are channel pans, the integration and prioritization of Christopher Drake's music, and other elements that up Part 1's cinematic quotient. Dialogue is clean, clear and exacting as well, rounding out a solid but not entirely enveloping lossless audio experience.
