Cronos

Cronos Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great 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 1.78:1m encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Guillermo del Toro's Cronos arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Cronos is presented in the director's preferred aspect ratio of 1.78:1. Director Guillermo del Toro and director of photography Guillermo Navarro supervised this new high-definition digital transfer, which was created in 2K resolution on a Spirit 4K Datacine from the original 35mm camera negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisors: Guillermo del Toro, Guillermo Navarro, Maria Palazzola.
Telecine colorist: Gregg Garvin/Modern Videofilm, Los Angeles."

Compared to the old Lionsgate Films SDVD release of Cronos, Criterion's Blu-ray release represents a massive upgrade in quality. Fine object detail, clarity, and contrast levels are dramatically improved, and colors substantially better reproduced. Furthermore, there are no traces of edge- enhancement and macroblocking, both of which are prominent on the SDVD release. There are no traces of heavy noise reduction. Naturally, Cronos has a wonderful organic look. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. Lastly, I did not see any annoying flecks, scratches, marks, stains, or debris. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Cronos Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 (with portions of English). For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. For the record, Cronos arrives with two introductions: English and Spanish (original).

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The stereo soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from 35mm LT/RT magnetic soundtrack. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation."

The Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is excellent. It has a wonderful range of dynamics and plenty of depth. The dialog is clean, crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. There are no serious balance issues with Javier Alvarez's music score either. Lastly, while viewing Cronos I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or dropouts to report in this review.
