Cronos

 (1993)

Cronos Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Jesús Gris is an antique dealer who, with his granddaughter Aurora, discovers a mysterious scarab-like object at the base of an old statue. The statue's previous owner was a 16th century alchemist who sought eternal life and the object turns out to be the Cronos which grants the user eternal life in exchange for blood.

For more about Cronos and the Cronos Blu-ray release, see Cronos Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Cronos Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Guillermo del Toro's Cronos arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

Fans of Cronos who could not take advantage of Criterion's excellent Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release will be incredibly pleased with Optimum Home Entertainment's Blu-ray release - because as far as I could tell the two look practically identical. The transfer Criterion used for their Blu-ray release appears just a tiny bit lighter, with some of the browns, reds, and yellows looking ever so slightly brighter, but the discrepancies are so small that they are actually next to impossible to immediately spot. Fine object detail, clarity, and contrast are all very pleasing. Edge-enhancement is never a serious issues of concern. I also did not see any traces of heavy noise reduction. As a result, like Criterion's transfer, Optimum Home Entertainment's transfer conveys excellent depth and fluidity. A layer of healthy grain is present throughout the entire film as well. Finally, there are absolutely no serious stability issues to report in this review. However, I did notice a couple of minor flecks popping up very early into the film. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Cronos Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Spanish LPCM 2.0 (with portions of English). For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

I watched the entire film today with the Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track to see how it compares to the Criterion Blu-ray release, which contains only a Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (sourced from the remastered original stereo soundtrack). There are quite a few sequences that benefit rather nicely from the elaborate 5.1 mix; the reception footage and the big fight between Jesus and Angel immediately come to mind -- there is a slightly better range of dynamics and various surround enhancements that work well. Javier Álvarez's music score also gets a minor boost. But I believe that a lot of people will be more than pleased with the Spanish LPCM 2.0 track because its key characteristics are indeed excellent. As expected, the dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow.
