Crash

 (2004)

Crash Blu-ray features mediocre video and audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

A Brentwood housewife and her D.A. husband. A Persian store owner. Two police detectives who are also lovers. An African-American television director and his wife. A Mexican locksmith. Two car-jackers. A rookie cop. A middle-aged Korean couple. They all live in Los Angeles. And during the next 36 hours, they will all collide. 'Crash' takes a provocative, unflinching look at the complexities racial tolerance in contemporary America. Diving headlong into the melting pot of post-9/11 Los Angeles, this urban drama tracks the volatile intersections of multi-ethnic characters as they struggle to overcome their fears while careening in and out of one another's lives. In the gray area between black and white, victim and aggressor, there are no easy answers.

For more about Crash and the Crash Blu-ray release, see Crash Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Matt Dillon, Jennifer Esposito, Shaun Toub, Brendan Fraser

Crash Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

As one of the first discs available on the Blu-ray format, Crash simply doesn't live up to the standards set by later high definition releases. Featuring an uneven 1080p/MPEG-2 transfer, the film's patchy presentation suffers from varying shot quality, inherent visual limitations, and a slew of technical issues. Colors are generally lush and vivid, but skintones are often flushed, bronzed, or washed out entirely. Likewise, contrast is gorgeous at times but, more often than not, whites are too hot, delineation is poor, and black levels are inconsistent (resulting in jarring transitions between deep interior shadows and unsightly nighttime skies). To make matters worse, fine detailing is unpredictable as well. Some scenes look fantastic, offering sharp textures, crisp edges, and impeccable clarity, while still others are soft, hazy, or cluttered with artifacts and source noise. To be blunt, watching Crash is like flipping back and forth between two different transfers.

Add to that some lingering edge enhancement, rampant crushing, and plenty of seemingly random transfer anomalies and you have a disappointing disc that begs for a new transfer. Sure, writer/director Paul Haggis's aesthetic style makes it tough to judge which issues are the result of directorial intent and which could be chalked up to a mediocre transfer, but it doesn't change the fact that the Blu-ray edition of Crash just doesn't look very good.


Crash Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Unfortunately, the film doesn't sound much better. 'Crash' comes loaded with a pair of underwhelming audio options – a rather timid Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround EX Audio track and a flat DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 surround mix that, for all intents and purposes, sound exactly alike. Dialogue is fairly clean and well prioritized, but sometimes becomes garbled and indistinct in exterior environments and tight interior spaces. In fact, every time the camera follows a pair of characters into a vehicle, effects suddenly sound muffled and the soundscape loses what little dynamic flair it had going for it. Conversations occasionally warble under the strain of invading road noise, a handful of words are left to the imagination, and ambience is annoyingly crammed into the front speakers along with everything else. By the time the film ended, I realized I had kept my finger on the volume button for the duration of the flick, tapping it up when characters would chat and dropping it back down when the film's musical score and third-act climaxes would storm in.

The tracks do exhibit moments of genuine LFE power and rear speaker presence… there were even scenes that invited me into the film and allowed me to immerse myself in its racially-charged vision of Los Angeles. However, the disc's audio selections were weak, unwieldy, and inconsistent. Hardly becoming of a next generation disc.
