Children of Men Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The camera style, contrast and color palette of Children of Men are highly stylized thanks to cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki. Yellows are favored, for a slightly sucked-out look and the handheld camera adds a bit of frenetic presence to an already schizo assortment of sets and action. One feature cannot be denied: the 1080p VC-1 encode is a brilliant transfer that delivers excellent definition. Watch the scene as Theo gazes down upon his friend after the Fish gang pulls Jasper from his home. Every tree is rendered with good presence. Even the puffs of smoke after each gunshot have lifelike appearance. Due to the color scheme, skin tones and earthtones only sometimes appear lush or palpable, but this was undoubtedly a decision at the director level to communicate a futuresque, nightmarish look and it works well enough.

No sign of edge enhancement, artifacts or black crush are visible, proving that whatever may be worth criticizing in the picture, it's not the fault of the blu-ray transfer. Gradients in the darker images are actually quite detailed from deep blacks to shades of grey that reveal good definition. This helps create depth and makes the night scenes more palpable and harrowing. Watch the scene where Theo is awakened in the farmhouse hideout of the Fishes gang. As he creeps around the house and goes outside, the contrast highlights certain details not just in the light areas, but in the shadows, allowing the darker areas to go pure black. My kuro screen does the job nicely, and you will need a display device capable of reproducing as true a black as possible to make this transfer appear vivid and defined. The rest of the colors do not have as important an impact.


Children of Men Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I expected Children of Men to have a more engaging surround field with many effects and voices assigned to side and rear channels, but the action is anchored solidly front and center. The score is impressive in the front left/right with just the slightest hint of ambience in the rear channels, but apart from surround imaging, the quality of the DTS-HD MA track is good. The LFE content was a bit weaker than I would have thought, too. Now that the criticisms are out of the way, let's discuss what the track does right. Highs have good brightness, extension and realism. Gunshots nearly have as much presence as in reference-quality Blu-ray discs, and voices showcase excellent crispness and tonal accuracy. And the music really is the crowning achievement of the audio mix--produced for DTS-HD MA, and proving heavily crankable on my B&W 802D system while still yielding plenty of detail and heft. From King Crimson to The Libertines, it delivers a wide range of moods and styles, in many cases perfectly complementing the action. It also maintains the British character of the film.

The soundtrack cuts include Hush (Deep Purple), Witness - 1 Hope (Roots Manuva), Tomorrow Never Knows (Junior Parker), Sleepy Shores (Michael Price), The Court Of The Crimson King (King Crimson), Backward (Kode 9 & the Spaceape), Wait (The Kills), There Is An Ocean (Donovan), Ruby Tuesday (Franco Battiato), Money Honey (Pressure), Arbeit Mach Frei (The Libertines), Indian Stomp (Cyrus Random Trio), Bring On The Lucie - Freda Peeple (John Lennon) and Running The World - Explicit (Jarvis Cocker). One would have expected the sound effects of an action film to steal the thunder of the audio mix. But in the case of Children of Men, it proves to be the music that takes top honors. Considering that the film is heavily weighted toward visual effects, it's an interesting choice to tame the surround field and emphasize what amounts to mood music. It works for me. If the audio had no music, like No Country for Old Men, the raw visuals would have been almost too overwhelming.
