Ben 10: Alien Swarm

 (TV) (2009)

Ben 10: Alien Swarm Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

But it will take all the super powers they have to battle this unstoppable alien technology. The stakes are high and the action is intense as Ben fights to protect our planet from the Alien Swarm.

Ben 10: Alien Swarm Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

At least Warner's unexpectedly striking 1080p/VC-1 transfer makes Alien Swarm a joy to watch. While skintones and other elements have intentionally been robbed of color, Ben 10's patented greens are bold, explosions flood the screen with vivid flames, and blacks recall the stark inkiness of the cartoon series. Contrast is just as strong, granting the image fairly convincing depth and dimensionality, and shadow delineation is revealing. Even fine detail, long the bane of television films and direct-to-video productions released in high definition, is razor sharp and surprisingly refined. Edge enhancement is nowhere to be found, textures are crisp and lifelike, and a hint of faint grain lends most scenes, dare I say, a filmic appearance. Moreover, aliasing only affects the opening title card letters, banding is rare and never a distraction, crush isn't an issue, and compression artifacts, while flitting into view during a handful of CG-heavy dust-ups, is kept to an acceptable minimum. My only major complaint is that source noise spikes whenever the lights go down, particularly during Ben's third-act assault on a shadowy warehouse. Regardless, I was more than pleased with Alien Swarm's video presentation and I'm confident young fans will be thrilled with the results.


Ben 10: Alien Swarm Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

It's also nice to see Warner devoting a full-blooded Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track to a lower tier release, even if it relies on blunt force trauma more than legitimate immersion or subtlety. Recently, any television title from the studio has been saddled with weak-kneed Dolby Digital audio. Here's hoping the negative reactions that have ensued have reminded Warner of the every-BD-will-have-a-lossless-track promise that was made in 2008 (before being broken, time and time again, in 2009). But I digress. Alien Swarm is, by design, a front-heavy endeavor that only comes to life when Ben takes advantage of his Omnitrix or Kevin gets behind the wheel of a car. Dialogue is clean and intelligible throughout, but rear speaker activity waxes and wanes as readily as the film's on-screen explosions. Likewise, LFE output packs some punch, but only when an energy blast or a shattering nano-probe requires some extra oomph. That's not to say the experience is disappointing, particularly if your expectations are in proper order, just that it lacks the precision, movement, and nuance of a summer blockbuster's mix. As a result, directionality is rather two-dimensional, pans alternate between smooth and stocky, and dynamics prioritize volume over proficiency. That being said, Alien Swarm sounds pretty good, especially considering the low-budget nature of the production. I'm tempted to give it a higher score, but I know I'd be rewarding the mere presence of a TrueHD track more than evaluating its actual quality.
