Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Most of the issues that bring Blood & Chrome's 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation down a notch are inherent to the source. Uneven grain and noise (a trademark of the BSG series proper), a few mangled CG elements (a handful of shots almost look unfinished), aliasing where CG seams have been left a bit raw (another side effect of the movie's truncated production timetable), a computer overlay that's so clean and shiny it feels completely out of place (as if someone forgot to add in the aforementioned grain and noise) and seemingly random eyesores pop up from time to time. Other issues are a bit more suspect. Slight macroblocking, intermittent banding, occasionally muted black levels and various negligible oddities don't exactly line up with CG effects or Moore and Eick's patented BSG aesthetics. It's difficult to differentiate between the two, though, making for a tricky video evaluation. Fortunately, the good far outweighs the not-so-good. Colors are bold, skintones are nicely saturated, primaries pop, contrast is on point, black levels are generally deep and satisfying, and detail is quite striking, particularly when it comes to suitably lit midrange shots and closeups, fighter dogfights and cruiser showdowns, and other action highlights. Wider shots that show off the hangars, Viper bays, space battles and other set pieces look great as well, and most of the scenes boast reasonably well-integrated live-action elements and CG backgrounds and enhancements. The high definition image only makes it look that much better, even if those who've long lamented the intended grit and grain of BSG will still have plenty to complain about. All in all, a fine presentation free of debilitating issues.


Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is thankfully more refined, with hard-hitting LFE output and blistering rear speaker activity, all of which does more to bring Blood & Chrome to life than the video presentation or the whole of the movie itself. Dialogue is clean and clear, barring a small selection of misprioritized lines that got buried beneath the action (none crucial, so far as I could tell). The soundfield is quite immersive too, albeit not consistently so. Vipers and Raiders rocket past and swoop round the listener. Missiles whiz from channel to channel. Explosions rock the ground and echo across the room. Winds howl, ships collide, nukes thoom and bloom, toasters clank and clomp down narrow corridors, gunfire fills the air, Bear McCreary's percussion-laced score erupts with power and precision, and the entire sonic experience is an engrossing one. Granted, directionality isn't as exacting as it is in the main series, and the movie's sound design isn't as nuanced. Still, Blood & Chrome doesn't sound like a failed pilot or a series originally released, episode by episode, on the web; it sounds like a full-fledged series launch, and an action-packed, pulse-pounding one at that.
