Columbus Circle

 (2012)

Columbus Circle Blu-ray despite solid video and great audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

Abigail Clayton lives alone. Very alone. In fact, the attractive heiress has not left her Manhattan loft apartment for almost two decades. The famous daughter of a wealthy industrialist, Abigail disappeared from the prying eyes of the press and the intrusiveness of her family on her 18th birthday, the day she received her massive inheritance. During years of self-imposed isolation, Abigail has had contact with only two people-her building's Concierge, Klandermann, with whom she communicates via notes-and Dr. Raymond Fontaine, a longtime family friend and her sole confidant for most of her life.

Columbus Circle Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Columbus Circle impresses on the whole with a crisp but hard-to-pin-down 1080p/VC-1 encode; an oft-times striking, at-times inconsistent presentation that suffers with a few ailments. Noise is uneven, lightly swarming random faces, walls and backdrops without warning. Faint artifacting and macroblocking barge in as well, albeit without as much malice. Other over-processed oddities appear from time to time too, including slight smearing, minor ringing and intermittent crush. While I suspect many of the transfer's shortcomings trace back to the film's already inconsistent photography and post-production tinkering, drawing the line between the source and its Blu-ray presentation is proving to be quite a challenge. Still, none of it amounts to anything remotely resembling an unwatchable presentation and, for the most part, Columbus Circle looks pretty good. Colors are strong and vivid, primaries pop, skintones are perfectly saturated, black levels are generally dark and deep, and contrast only slips and slides here and there. Detail is also excellent on the whole, with an array of nicely resolved textures, revealing closeups and cleanly defined edges, and delineation is decidedly decent, especially given the noirish nooks of Gallo's thriller. Softness intrudes at times, sure -- the vast majority filmic, a few select instances not-so-filmic -- but it isn't a bother. All in all, Columbus Circle could look better, but it could also look much, much worse.


Columbus Circle Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's unassuming DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track keeps its head down and gets the job done. Dialogue is clear, able-bodied and neatly prioritized in the mix, even if a handful of hushed lines drift dangerously close to indistinct. The LFE channel isn't what I'd call aggressive but it's certainly assertive, embracing the film's meatier thunks and thuds, more intense sequences, and Brian Tyler's pounding score (particularly when a drunken Charles catches Abagail and Lillian venturing into the hall). The rear speakers step up as well, creating a fairly immersive soundfield tainted only by a hint of artificiality. Shattered glass scatters across the floor, heated arguments bleed through the walls of Abagail's apartment, crowded city streets are suitably noisy, and the acoustics of luxury lofts, lobbies and elevators are dead on. Directionality isn't as precise as it could be, and pans are a tad wooden on occasion, but they aren't prevailing issues. Columbus Circle's DTS-HD MA track proves to be the highlight of the disc, at least it will for those who stick around long enough to experience it in its entirety.
