Brothers

 (2009)

Brothers Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

On the eve of yet another tour of duty in Afghanistan, Sam Cahill, a proud Marine, reunites with his estranged brother, Tommy, a troubled individual who recently finished a prison sentence. When Sam is presumed dead after his helicopter is shot down, Tommy rises to the occasion and helps his brother's widow, Grace, and two elementary-school-age daughters cope. The dynamics changes again, however, when Sam is found alive and returns home a changed and fractured man.

Brothers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 18Mbps), Brothers is a true revelation in high-definition. Fine object detail is well above average, revealing intricate patterns in the stitching of clothing and every nuance on faces of the predominantly young cast. Whether we're speaking of intimate close-range shots or wide vistas, there's never an ounce of softening to speak of, leaving the image appearing crystal clear (almost as if you're looking through a window). The color palette for the film encompasses several interesting choices that never appear highly attractive, but fall well within the intentional look Sheridan was going for. Many scenes appear drab and gloomy, as if the cheerful colors of a natural spectrum were stripped from the final product. This enhances the emotional undertones of the story, and should be viewed as an appropriate element of the highly effective final product, but may also be a touch off-putting to viewers that expect a vivid spectrum from every Blu-ray offering. Continuing with the positives, black levels retain appropriate depth, and contrast generates an attractive level of shade variance in all but a handful of scenes (the sequences that show a touch of weakness are limited to Sam's captivity, where the film appears a touch on the artificially bright side). Lastly, I never noticed the slightest use of edge-enhancement, DNR is thankfully absent, and there's never a shred of artifacting or aliasing.

Brothers may lack a certain "wow" factor due to intentional choices in the coloring, but this is still a fantastic presentation that accurately recreates the stylistic choices within the source material.


Brothers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Similar to the visual experience, the lossless audio track manages to delight despite its understated nature. As I mentioned in the main section of the review, this is pure drama with just a hint of action. As such, the majority of the audio experience is delivered through dialogue and subtle environmental effects (such as the crunch of snow underfoot). Taking into account the beauty of the performances on display, we can imagine the problems that could have cropped up if the audio balance wasn't delivered with the upmost precision. Thankfully, my worries were quickly put to bed when I realized the audio mix simply allows viewers to become lost in the unfolding drama without experiencing pesky miscues that might pull you out of the story. Whether you're listening to Grace whisper under her breath, or privy to a startling fit of uncontrollable rage courtesy of Sam, you'll never find yourself fumbling for the remote to adjust the volume in one direction or another. In addition to the excellent balance and clarity in the dialogue and effects, the film contains a brilliant soundtrack that truly adds to the charm of the film. U2's song "Winter" was nominated for the Best Original Song Golden Globe, and it's not too difficult to understand the reasoning after you listen to the song within the context of the film.

The overall audio experience won't set your speakers on fire or justify a demonstration of your surround sound setup, but the balance and clarity of the subtle mix still deserves high marks for achieving what it set out to accomplish.
