Batman: Year One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

First things first: banding rears its head on more than one occasion (especially in the skies and around bright light sources framed by darkness), but it isn't as distracting or debilitating as it has been in other, more problematic DCU Animation presentations. Warner's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is quite good, truth be told, reveling in rich blues and purples, somber yellows and browns, grimy grays and greens, and seemingly bottomless blacks. Contrast and clarity are strong, and detail is spot on as well, with crisp lines, sharply rendered hand-drawn characters and backgrounds, and well-resolved computer-animated elements. Problems arise, though. Artifacting, macroblocking and digital noise, minor as they are, make a few appearances, and slight aliasing and faint pixelation are rather common. While I didn't run into any scenes that were crippled by encoding or source inadequacies, the closer I looked, the more I noticed. Be that as it may, it's becoming more and more clear that the issues that plague the DCU Animation transfers trace back to shortcomings in the productions. Ultimately, Year One's presentation isn't as striking as I had hoped, but it isn't nearly as bad as I feared.


Batman: Year One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track hits harder and pushes Year One to new heights. It isn't quite as immersive as the crime-ridden city herself, but the original sound design isn't always as cinematic as the visuals it accompanies ("quite," "always" and "as" being the key words). Even so, the rear speakers are certainly up to the task, grabbing hold of every rickety monorail car, inner-city terminal, distant police siren, throaty car engine, downpour, street noise, shattering window, and swarming bat that graces the soundscape. Ambience is persistent and effective, interior acoustics are impressive (especially for a direct-to-video animation production), and bursts of absorbing directionality deliver some great movement. Low-end output struck me as tad hollow in some (limited) regards as the movie gained momentum -- Gunshots, car wrecks and explosions sound fantastic. The bass in the movie's music score? Not so much -- but, by and large, the LFE channel doesn't disappoint and keeps things pounding along. To top it all off, dialogue and narration are clean, clear and distinct throughout, with nary a muffled or mangled line to complain about. As it stands, Batman's lossless mix is the highlight of the disc.
