Chimpanzee

 (2012)

Without warning, young Oscar is tragically orphaned during an attack from a rival group of chimpanzees. Afterwards, he attempts to survive on his own, and to be accepted by the other chimps. But Oscar struggles, until he is surprising adopted by the Alpha Male of his group.

Chimpanzee Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

To answer the obvious question: mild banding and minor shimmering. Mild, intermittent, almost negligible banding and exceedingly minor shimmering are all that separate Chimpanzee's gorgeous 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer from perfection, and they don't separate it by much. (The distance is so short I'm tempted to bump the film's video score to a 5.0 and call it a day.) Colors are rich and wondrous, lush jungle greens and earthy tree-bark browns are natural and lifelike, and black levels are deep and absorbing, without a hint of crush or troubled shadow delineation. (A few nighttime shots see a spike in noise, but nothing out of the ordinary or unexpected.) And detail? Detail is as striking as it is refined. Edges are clean and nicely defined, textures are crisp and convincing, grain is present but quite pleasant, and closeups are jaw-dropping, to the point I found myself scrambling to take in every inch of the image. The encode itself is proficient too, without any significant artifacting, aliasing or distracting anomaly that isn't inherited from the film's source. To go one step further, Chimpanzee's photography and high definition transfer might just be worth the price of admission alone.


Chimpanzee Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Freddy and Oscar's jungle home comes to life thanks to Chimpanzee's immersive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track; a lossless treat that captures the film's playfulness, tension and awe with seeming ease. Allen's narration is clear and distinct without ever hijacking the soundscape, and the chimps' chatter, bellows and battle cries are preserved to perfection. Rustling leaves, groaning branches, cracking nuts, pounding fists, and the loud clop clop of chimpanzee feet as they thump tree trunks surrounds the listener with an enveloping liveliness that ranges from subtle to engrossing to surprising. Directionality is precise, cross-channel pans are transparent, and separation is quite good. Moreover, LFE output lends weight and oomph where it's needed -- Scar's invasions are so aggressive they're almost bewildering -- and disarming dynamics round out the already impressive track.
