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 Shout Factory.

The basics are solid. Most close-ups convey decent depth and pleasing definition (see screencaptures #1 and 4). The large panoramic shots also boast pleasing fluidity. Color reproduction is good, though there are some fluctuations, especially during sequences where light is restricted. Some extremely light noise corrections have been applied. As a result, some softness sneaks in here and there and affects definition (see screencaptures #3 and 10). In motion, however, the effect is quite difficult to spot. Colors are lush and stable. There are no traces of sharpening corrections. The high-definition transfer is also free of serious banding and aliasing patterns. Finally, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. To sum it all up, there is certainly some room for improvement, but this is the best presentation of Death Watch that I have ever seen. The disc is definitely worth picking up. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Death Watch Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Shout Factory have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Death Watch has a fairly modest sound design. There are sequences where Antoine Duhamel's score comes alive (listen to the strings), but the dynamic movement is indeed limited. The dialog is stable and clean but not always easy to follow because some of the European actors have rather thick accents. Naturally, optional English subtitles should have been included. There are no serious pops, distortions, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
