Contagion

 (2011)

Contagion Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Illustrates the worst case scenario of a global viral pandemic from multiple points of view, as ordinary people become severely ill and must be cared for by their loved ones, and harried doctors struggle to contain the disease.

Contagion Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Contagion looks like a smaller, more intimate Soderbergh film, defying its $60 million budget with every overcast sky, pale complexion, sickly hue and bleak foray into an infected populous. But Warner's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer remains sound throughout, holding true to Soderbergh's photography and vision. There are a few bursts of color -- warm Chinese casino interiors, vibrant CDC containment suits and the like -- and skintones are (relatively) healthy and lifelike. Black levels are a touch underwhelming and contrast is a tad inconsistent, but neither issue traces back to the high definition encode itself. Thankfully, detail is impressive (striking even) on the whole, with clean textures and sharp edges. And, aside from some obvious shimmering in some of the CDC office scenes, there aren't any anomalies to report; I didn't spot any significant artifacting, aliasing, banding, smearing or crush, and the noise that spikes on occasion is attributable to the source, not a faulty presentation. All in all, Contagion's transfer isn't going to drop any jaws, but it isn't going to disappoint either.


Contagion Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The same could be said of Contagion's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Though nothing special, Warner's lossless mix delivers for the most part and, at the very least, preserves Soderbergh's every last sonic intention. Dialogue is clear and intelligible, even in the midst of more chaotic sequences, and sound effects follow suit. The LFE channel isn't going to rattle windows and the rear speakers aren't going to leave anyone with a sore neck, but both are able-bodied and effective, lending power and presence when called upon. Dynamics are a bit thin, sure, and directionality isn't as engaging as it could be, I'll admit. But the low-key nature of it all serves the low-key nature of the story, and vice versa. It only helps that Cliff Martinez's mechanical score so effortlessly punctuates the proceedings with such punch and precision.
