Blood and Chocolate

 (2007)

Blood and Chocolate Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

As a young girl living in the remote mountains of Colorado, Vivian (Bruckner) watched helplessly as her family was murdered by a pack of angry men for the secret they carried in their blood. Vivian survived the attack by running into the woods and changing into a wolf. Ten years later, Vivian is living a relatively safe and normal life in Bucharest, Romania. Vivian spends her days working in a chocolate shop and nights trawling the city’s underground clubs, fending off the reckless antics of her cousin Rafe, and his gang of delinquents he refers to as "The Five".

Vivian’s life begins to unravel when she has a chance encounter with Aiden (Dancy), an artist researching Bucharest’ ancient art and relics for his next graphic novel. Aiden pursues Vivian until she relents and begins to see him, but she can’t bring herself to tell him the truth - and lives in fear of showing him who she really is. Even though Vivian has sworn never to kill, she is as much an animal as she is human, and her love for Aiden threatens to cast him to the very wolves who saved her life and who are waiting for their chance to hunt him as prey.

Blood and Chocolate Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

An earlier release from Sony, Blood & Chocolate sports a mid-level 1080p, MPEG-2 encoded, 2.35:1-framed transfer. The picture's brighter scenes sport good color reproduction, a fair sense of depth, and solid detailing on the various locations in and around Bucharest; viewers will be pleased with the texturing on streets and building façades, but the transfer stumbles when the film shifts to its almost ever-present darkness. Here, the transfer goes smooth and lacks depth and vibrancy; shadow detail is generally poor, save for some deliciously-realized exterior shots of Bucharest at street level as light fixtures shine down on wet pavement and brick walls. Generally, blacks tend to drown out details around the screen, and faces and other objects within the shadows lack texture. Skin tones, too, take on a decidedly orange tint, whether in daytime or nighttime scenes. There's little of note to this transfer; it's murky, not particularly sharp, and just isn't very attractive during its many dark sequences. It seems fairly representative of the filmmakers' intent, features a bit of grain, and lacks much in the way of intrusive noise. It's a decent enough transfer, but it's not going to wow anyone except for those who enjoy Blood & Chocolate as their first Blu-ray experience.


Blood and Chocolate Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Blood & Chocolate spills out a decent PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack. No great shakes but not exactly a poor effort, the track seems more a victim of the movie's lackluster sound design than a middling effort on Sony's part. It does make good use of the surround speakers in the way they support the primary musical cues, but there's a notable absence of seamlessness, space, and clarity to the music, traits associated with the upper-tier lossless and uncompressed soundtracks. A dance club scene in chapter two proves to be about the best the track has to offer, with what is an almost mesmerizingly deep and cavernous presentation as the entire soundstage is filled with the music's dreamlike quality. Unfortunately, the remainder of the track never quite lives up to that potential. Additionally, it lacks a more natural atmosphere; the city locales seem ripe for a more potent environmental support structure, but rarely is there more than passing indication that there's anything going on outside the frame. A series of gunshots and shattering glass heard near the end of the film also fail to pack much of a punch. In the track's defense, a light rainfall as heard in chapter ten delivers the most seamless and natural environmental ambience in the entire film, the track doing well to make it seem like it's raining throughout the soundstage. Otherwise, this one is a basic nuts-and-bolts offering that delivers everything the movie needs to get by -- including problem-free dialogue reproduction -- but there's little of substance here to elevate it into the upper stratosphere of Blu-ray soundtracks.
