Blood

 (2012)

Blood Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Two police officer brothers who struggle to maintain their sense of morality while investigating a murder. With their father Lenny also an officer of the law in his heyday, policing seems to run in the veins of Joe and Chrissie Fairburn. However, when a young girl is discovered murdered - the most horrific crime to afflict the community in recent memory - the brothers face a stern test of their mettle.

For more about Blood and the Blood Blu-ray release, see Blood Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Brian Cox, Stephen Graham, Zoe Tapper, Ben Crompton

Blood Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Blood was shot by George Richmond, part of the family of cameramen of whom the father is Anthony B. Richmond (Legally Blonde). Blood's visual style represents a peculiarly contemporary phenomenon, in that it was shot on film but then processed on a digital intermediate to look like digital video to such an extent that I was surprised to see the Kodak credit at the end. The Blu-ray has presumably been sourced from digital files, because it looks very much like Blu-rays made from films acquired with digital cameras like the Red or the Arri Alexa: sharp, detailed, noiseless and virtually without detectable film grain (you can find some if you study a still frame closely, but in motion it's barely visible). One has to wonder why the filmmakers didn't just switch to digital capture.

The film's color palette is consistently chilly and blue, which reflects both the seaside locale and the prevailing emotional temperature. Even the color red, whether of blood or of some ordinary object, has a faded and cold appearance. The blacks are solid and deep, which is essential in both night scenes and interiors where groups of men congregate but frequently fail to communicate.

The average bitrate of 22.98 Mbps is acceptable for a film without major action scenes or complex detail. Artifacts were not an issue.


Blood Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Blood's moody 5.1 sound mix is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA. Anything close to the water's edge has the sound of the ocean all around. Rain storms, indeed all elements relating to water, always make their presence felt. The hum of activity in the large main hall of police headquarters is placed subtly in the surrounds, and there is a lengthy sequence in a derelict movie theater that makes good use of the surround array for creaks, rustlings and other noises that prompt one to shine a flashlight to see what might be there in the dark.

Dialogue is poorly prioritized in this mix. The accents are not thick, but many of the lines are tossed off, half-swallowed or buried amidst other sounds, and Gallagher's script is the kind of condensed tale where missing a line can be fatal. An entire plot development may hinge a single key exchange. It's been a long time since I have had to rewind and turn on the subtitles as often as I did with Blood.

Daniel Pemberton, who also scored The Awakening for director Murphy, has supplied an appropriately dark score for Blood.
