Defiance Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Paramount delivers Defiance to Blu-ray with a splendid 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. The film begins with a collection of darker sequences where steely, cold blues dominate the palette. Most colors, generally found in clothing, fade into the darkened appearance of the film, but are offset by a nice sprinkling of greens that mark the presence of foliage. Brighter daytime sequences sparkle, with colors standing out as natural and realistic, even if they do tend towards shades of blue and gray. Some interior scenes, those taking place at night, for instance, offer a warm, inviting presence, the yellow glow of a candle providing a pleasing atmosphere that might not reveal intricate levels of detail but showcases all that is asked of it, the Blu-ray disc handling the broad array of lighting conditions thrown its way expertly. Detail is generally stellar across the board, be it on clothing, faces, tree trunks, or the forest floor. Close-ups of Tuvia's and Zus' faces throughout the film, for instance, almost always reveal fine lines, bumps, and scruffy several-day-old beards that showcase plenty of texture and very fine and nuanced details. Defiance also offers up a discernible depth about the image that further reinforces the strong foreground and background details. Flesh tones and black levels also excel. Finally, a fine layer of grain swirls around the image, adding the finishing touches to what is a stellar cinematic-in-appearance presentation. Defiance may not feature an abundance of eye-catching color, but the transfer delivers a first-class presentation that, properly displayed, rivals top-notch theater presentations.


Defiance Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Defiance debuts on Blu-ray with a quality Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. This mix offers wonderful ambience throughout the film, of note most any scenes taking place in the forest where rustling leaves, chirping birds and insects, a subtle breeze, a flowing stream, or a drenching thunderstorm all deliver natural, immersive atmospheric effects that aren't terribly loud but certainly realistic in presence, virtually placing listeners in the midst of the natural locales. The action scenes also deliver. Though some single gunshots lack punch on the low end, the film's several running gun battles feature effects that spread evenly across the soundstage, with shots thumping out from every direction. They continue to lack slightly in volume at reference levels, particularly shots from the pistol-caliber submachine guns. The rifles offer a bit more of a sonic crack, but still lack that last bit of realistic punch. Several confrontations near the end of the film offer up suitable dynamics. An air raid that sees bombs dropped on the forest floor and a tank firing shells offer up decent levels of bass and spread out nicely, creating a discernible sense of both power and space. Both sequences serve up good directionality and make use of the entire soundstage. Defiance also delivers strong dialogue reproduction. While this track never falters, it never quite reaches into the stratosphere, either, the end result a very good but not quite reference-grade presentation.
