Deep Rising / The Puppet Masters Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Deep Rising
Score: 3.5/5


Deep Rising isn't a very good looking movie, but Mill Creek's Blu-ray handles the film's dreary photography well enough. The picture appears quite flat and dull. Details are sufficient, but not mind-blowing. The image is best served by the uptick in resolution and heightened clarity of Blu-ray. Colors are decent, particularly early on inside the Argonautica's main hall before disaster strikes. Low-light murkiness defines much of the movie, however, leaving objects appearing bland and dark. Black levels waver from overly deep to too bright. Light grain remains and a few speckles pop up here and there. The image doesn't excite, but this is a serviceable high definition transfer of a movie that wasn't made with eye candy in mind.

The Puppet Masters
Score: 3.5/5


Like Deep Rising, The Puppet Masters features a fairly good high definition transfer. It's unspectacular but solid, a fair catalogue image with no real major problems, a surprise given the low cost of the release. The image offers a stable, consistent picture quality. Details are good but at times a bit pasty and occasionally smeary, particularly across background elements. The image never captures the absolute precision and intricate textures of the finest Blu-ray transfers, but audiences should be satisfied with the general stability, clarity, and accuracy on display. The same may be said of colors. The palate is even and accurate, never perfectly rich but not really dull, either. Very light grain remains, but a few edge halos appear here and there. Blacks and flesh tones are largely accurate. It's not a showstopper, but Mill Creek's transfer is quite good all around.


Deep Rising / The Puppet Masters Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Deep Rising
Score: 4.5/5


Deep Rising swims rather than sinks with an aggressive and highly entertaining DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Mill Creek's audio presentation is packed with plenty of surround sound elements, robust effects, and hefty gunfire. Music blares with good clarity and plenty of back channel support. The energetic party aboard the Argonautica packs in a bunch of people and pulls the listening audience into the middle of the festivities. Dialogue carries nicely through the main hall in silence, but the track shines once mayhem takes over. Heavy crashes, all sorts of twisted metal sounds, creaks and moans, and other sounds of a ship in peril and under the pressure of a dangerous sea creature play with an exciting feel. Gunfire erupts loudly and practically tears the soundstage to shreds. Dialogue is clear and accurate. This track certainly doesn't lack effort. It's not absolutely seamless and sometimes favors energy and volume over precision, but no doubt it's a fun ride that makes a fairly insipid movie a bit more palatable.

The Puppet Masters
Score: 3.5/5


The Puppet Masters lands on Blu-ray with an adequate DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtrack. Listeners will enjoy sufficient heft and space to the opening music. Clarity satisfies, though never does any element really pass for real life. The track spreads the sides out fairly wide. Ambience and action effects fill up the entire front position of the stage, but the lack of rear support lessens the impact of the film's generic action scenes. Dialogue is firm and clear, focused up the middle and refusing to unnaturally drift off to the sides. This is nowhere near as dynamic and exciting a presentation as Deep Rising, but the material suits what is a rather lame movie well enough.
