Daybreakers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 18Mbps), Daybreakers offers an above-average visual presentation despite mild weaknesses that occasionally crop up. Fine object detail rarely rivals the precision of top-tier high definition productions, but with the exception of several overly soft sequences, I'd still rank Daybreakers in the top 80 percentile. From a color standpoint, the film incorporates contrasting stylistic choices that drench the vampire environment in cold, monochromatic hues, while bringing warmth to the human hideout through the use of sandstone and wood. This dichotomy stopped just short of presenting alternate timelines, as if the human survivors stepped back fifty years to a simpler moment in history. Similar to most genre offerings, Daybreakers is set almost entirely at night (after all, vampires are sensitive to the light), so a vital aspect of producing a good transfer relies on subtle contrast gradients and abundant black level depth. Fortunately, this is one example that effortlessly rose to the challenge. Whether we're witnessing the explosion of a staked vampire in the dead of night, or a subsider emerge from the shadows of an open doorway, I never detected a shred of weakness in black level and contrast.

I'll readily commend the Spierig Bros. on their ability to create a visually engaging experience that oozes atmosphere. Given the stylistic elements of the production, I could envision the transfer struggling to keep up, but I was quite pleased with the proficiency of the end result.


Daybreakers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Despite my ho-hum reaction to the film itself, the lossless audio track is exactly what I'd hoped it would be. From the rumble of Elvis' Firebird to the crackle of burning vampires, every element is geared toward putting a smile on your face. Even during moments when the surround channels aren't bombarded with loud effects, you'll notice subtle nuances that still maintain tension, but give our ears a break from the dominant flipside of the spectrum. Regarding surround separation, I'd suggest you listen closely to several scenes where the advancing vampire military group employs the use of tranquilizer darts to capture the remaining human survivors. The high-pitched sound of darts cutting through air move across the surround field in all directions, while occasionally delivering a thud of contact as onscreen characters slump to the ground. Moments such as these will help you realize the level of effort on the part of the sound department in order to generate an immersive audio experience.

Although I enjoyed the overall audio track immensely, there was one element that could've used a degree of improvement. With a track this robust, it's easy for your ears to grow accustomed to the presence of loud sounds, which often exceed the volume levels of the dialog within the track. In the case of Daybreakers, the vampire roles incorporate dialog that registers just a hair above a whisper, forcing viewers to strain more than we're accustomed to. It's not drastic or overly-problematic, but the slight imbalance is still worth mentioning in the interest of explaining my final technical score.
