Chasing Mavericks

 (2012)

Chasing Mavericks Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Gerard Butler stars in this surfing drama. Santa Cruz teenager Jay Moriarty (Jonny Weston) discovers that the Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, exists only a few miles from his home. Instantly gripped by the dream of surfing the wave, he begs local surfing legend Frosty Hesson (Butler) to help him achieve his goal. But with tide patterns dictating that the Mavericks is due to reappear in just 12 weeks, has Jay got what it takes to conquer this epic wave?

For more about Chasing Mavericks and the Chasing Mavericks Blu-ray release, see Chasing Mavericks Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Chasing Mavericks Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Chasing Mavericks was shot digitally using Arri Alexa and Red Epic camera systems, and I wouldn't be surprised if there are some occasional DSLR or action-cam inserts as well. Despite the all-digital production, the movie's 1080p/AVC-encoded Blu-ray presentation has a surprisingly filmic look, with a thin layer of source noise that doubles nicely for grain. As usual, 20th Century Fox has kept the fidelity of the picture intact, with no obvious noise reduction, edge enhancement, or compression issues. (Sitting on a dual-layer, 50GB disc, the film has plenty of room.) There are a few shots from the surfing sequences that look a little soft, but most of the time, clarity is excellent. Closeups, in particular, feature an abundance of tightly resolved detail in the areas you tend to notice it—hair, skin, and clothing textures. Color too is vivid and dynamic, from the bright sky blues and greenish water to funereal overcast grays. Contrast is consistant, and skin tones are accurate to the grading of each scene. On the whole, the image is very satisfying. No distractions here.


Chasing Mavericks Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

I was expecting the film to get 20th Century Fox's usual lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 treatment—which would've been just fine—but I was surprised by a full 7.1 mix that goes above and beyond the call of duty. The track makes great use of the extra aural real estate. The surfing sequences in particular really do come alive, with foamy spray, pounding waves—often triggering some deep low-end subwoofer engagement—and a wash of general oceany ambience, from soft wind to the distant caws of seabirds. During the quieter scenes, dialogue takes precedence, and the actors' voices are always, clear, balanced, and easy to understand. Garden State composer Chad Fischer provides a tonally complementary score, but what you'll really remember is the film's smattering of mid-1990s hits, from The Butthole Surfers' "Pepper" to Mazzy Star's "Fade Into You." The music frequently fills the entire soundfield, and has a strong sense of clarity. The disc includes several dub and subtitle options—see above for details—along with a descriptive audio track.
