Death Watch Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Bertrand Tavernier's Death Watch arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Park Circus.

The high-definition transfer appears to have been sourced from the same restoration that was used as a foundation for the U.S. release of the film by Shout Factory. There are traces of light noise corrections (which I assume are on the master that was prepared after the film's restoration), but depth and clarity are very pleasing. The traces could be spotted during select outdoor sequences (see screencapture #16) but never become overly distracting. Despite some minor fluctuations, color depth and stability are good. Edge-enhancement is not a serious issues of concern. The high-definition transfer is also free of banding and alising. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. Large damage marks, debris, cuts, and stains are nowhere to be seen. All in all, though there is some room for improvement, this is a fine release that should please fans of Bertrand Tavernier's work. (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).


Death Watch Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Park Circus have not provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

Excluding the occasional motifs where the strings come alive, dynamic movement is rather limited. But this isn't to imply that there are limitations with the lossless audio track, rather that the film's sound design is fairly modest. The dialog is crisp, stable, clean, and relatively easy to follow. There are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
