Day of the Falcon

 (2011)

Day of the Falcon Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Set in the 1930s Arab states at the dawn of the oil boom, the story centers on a young Arab prince torn between allegiance to his conservative father and modern, liberal father-in-law.

Day of the Falcon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Whatever its limitations as a film, Day of the Falcon certainly shines on Blu-ray. Sumptuously photographed by French cinematographer Jean-Marie Dreujou using primarily film, with an occasional shot acquired in HD and the sources harmonized in post-production on a digital intermediate, the film has the epic sweep that is typical of director Annaud's work. Image Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray provides both the scale of the landscapes (with Tunisia and Qatar standing in for Saudi Arabia) and the fine detail of weather-beaten skin, clothing, camel and horse hair and, of course, endless varieties of sand. Colors range from the bright yellows of the daytime desert to the deep blues and blacks of the night, with a varied palette of hues for the finery of the royal family and its retinue in Emir Nesib's household and also for Sultan Amar's attendants.

The grain pattern from the filmed portions has been retained in its natural form, but it is so fine that it will hardly be noticed. None of the image's sharpness appears to have been induced by artificial means, and the image is free of artifacts caused by compression or other digital anomalies. (The extreme weather conditions under which the production photographed did generate an occasional lens flare, however.) Overall, this is about as good a Blu-ray image as one could hope to see for complex desert scenes of combat involving tanks, camels, horses and guns. I just wish it were in service of a better film.


Day of the Falcon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Perhaps because its producer and director were aiming for a traditional Hollywood-style epic, the soundtrack to Day of the Falcon, encoded as DTS-HD MA 5.1, avoids the kind of "whiz-bang" effects that one associates with action films, even though there are many scenes that would support them. Even a big effect involving a huge oil tank explosion is relatively sedate, at least compared to how Michael Bay would have done it. The soundtrack is well-mixed with clear dialogue, effects that blend smoothly and a distinct sense of each environment, but the surrounds do not call attention to themselves. James Horner's contemplative, almost mournful score, which features vocals by Fahad Al Kubaisi, attempts to bridge the gap between the film's Western point of view and its Middle Eastern subject matter, with mixed success.
