D.O.A. Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

D.O.A.'s 1080p transfer falls around the upper end of the Mill Creek Blu-ray picture quality spectrum. The image appears fairly detailed and nicely colored, and it's generally consistent to boot. Grain retention is evident, and ranges in visible intensity from low-to-medium-to-high. The black-and-white opening and closing segments appear rough by design, though blacks do go rather pale and a few pops and stray vertical lines are present. The bulk of the film, presented in color, yields a steady palette that's never too dim but never excessively or unnaturally vibrant, even in bright reds that push the display rather hard. Skin textures can appear somewhat smooth and pasty, but generally the image offers fair facial, clothing, and accent details. The image isn't consistently sharp and precision clarity isn't a given, but softness and murky elements are the exception rather than the rule. Black levels in the color segments are fine, though skin tones favor a slightly red and rosy appearance. Print wear isn't an issue of much concern, nor are banding or blocky backgrounds. This is a serviceable, acceptable transfer of an old catalogue title plopped onto a Blu-ray being sold at a bargain price right off the bat.


D.O.A. Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

D.O.A. delivers a soundtrack that's sort of lackluster but effective, not lively but not on life support, either. Mill Creek's DTS-HD MA 2.0 lossless soundtrack serves up music that plays with suitable balance, natural smoothness, and good front-side spacing, with emphasis on a club scene that offers a more intense musical presentation with heightened volume and energy. The basic dialogue element impresses insofar as its ability to remain natural and focused in the middle portion of the soundstage. Various atmospherics give this track a larger feel, a bigger sense of space, and a more natural flair. Whether the din of a busy college quad or a Christmas party, chatter in an art gallery, the hustle and bustle of a busy city street, or specific effects like a flushing toilet or police sirens, the track reproduces the film's various surroundings and sound effects with relative ease. There's a slight crunchiness to a few effects and the strive for clarity sometimes seems to put a strain on the track, but all things considered this is a fair presentation that cannot be faulted too much given the aggressive bargain pricing.
