Despicable Me 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The great 3D discs are the ones that are the easiest to review, and brother, Despicable Me 3D is a piece of cake. This is a fantastic inaugural 3D release from Universal that comes awfully close to perfection. Of all the transfer's fantastic features, the best might be its colors. This is easily the liveliest 3D release yet, with a color palette that's nothing short of striking in terms of vibrancy and diversity. Whether the desert tans that open the film, Vector's bright orange accents, or the Minions' banana yellow shading, Despicable Me dazzles in 3D with some of the best color around. Just as good is the disc's endless supply of wonderfully realized details. Every frame is home to striking textures that reach the pinnacle of what Blu-ray and digital animation both are currently capable of achieving. Clothing looks spectacular, with the slightest of frays and fuzzies visible on the pink woven cap worn by one of the girls plainly visible throughout, while Gru's zippered black garment reveals the most intricate of fabric textures. Gru's classic Science Fiction rocket-propelled vehicles look amazing, too; the slick metallic surface reveals not only the detailing of every nut and bolt holding the vehicles together, but also every dent and scratch that gives the machines character. Black levels are superb, and only the slightest hint of banding is visible in one or two shots. This is an amazing transfer, and the 3D attributes make it even better.

Universal's first foray into Blu-ray 3D doesn't disappoint. Although the film's title card appears outlined by heavy ghosting -- so much so that the 3D effect is almost ruined -- and several other objects feature shadows throughout the movie when the disc is replayed on Panasonic's first-generation Blu-ray 3D hardware, such anomalies are cancelled out by the superb and seamless depth offered by the added dimension of high definition goodness. The transfer is one of those where realistic depth proves a far more valuable commodity than does gimmicky 3D tricks. Depth is superb throughout, and whether viewers are looking across a room or down a city street, the television becomes a window into an animated world that places the viewer in the middle of every environment. When three Minions go shopping in chapter 10, the superstore's expansive isles seem to stretch on to infinity, the effect little more than a visual gag but one that works incredibly well in 3D. Similar shots fare quite well throughout, as does a particular shrink ray scene near the end of the film and a unique first-person view of a cookie robot scurrying around Vector's home. As noted earlier, there aren't a lot of deliberate "wow" moments in the film, though there are a few that work quite well and don't seem forced into the movie just for the sake of dazzling the 3D audience. A roller coaster ride in chapter six doesn't exactly leap off the screen, but the 3D visuals do a fair job of replicating that real life experience. The tip of a spacecraft seems to stick straight out of the television in one late scene, but there are a few obvious "misses" throughout the movie, scenes where a greater 3D effect might have benefited the experience, such as a barrage of gunfire and missile launches in chapter six that don't seem to shoot out of the screen with quite as much 3D bravado as one might hope. Still, Blu-ray 3D -- at least so far -- has been more about balance and realistic depth, and that's exactly what this disc provides. Combined with its superb coloring -- easily the best yet on a 3D disc -- and exceptional detailing, Despicable Me 3D is one top two or three Blu-ray 3D discs currently available.

Despicable Me 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Despicable Me's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is just as wonderful as its 1080p 3D video transfer. Universal's latest killer soundtrack offers exceptional spacing around the soundstage; separation is fantastic as every speaker works to create a seamless environment and deliver pinpoint sound effects and imaging, while music plays primarily across the front but with a rear channel support presence that practically melts away the speakers and fills the room with rich, infinitely clear, and satisfying notes. Indeed, sound effects play with a naturalism that's the equal to anything heard on the best Blu-ray discs; whether something as mundane as a doorbell ringing off to the side or far more agressive and dynamic effects such as jet-propelled vehicles and missiles zipping through the listening area, there's no shortage of sound effects, both big and small and everything in between, to bring the movie to life and satisfy even the most demanding of audiophiles to no end. This mix is perfectly balanced; the surrounds carry a large percentage of information, but only just enough to support rather than dominate the soundtrack. This a seamless listening experience that's about as rich and invigorating as they come. Bass is superb, too; it's potent but not overwhelming, every instance finding just the right volume and strength to support whatever's happening in the movie without dominating the remainder of the track or playing with even a hint of sloppiness. A dance tune in chapter nine pounds out the beats with perfect accuracy, while action scenes are supported by a potent and tight low end that add another dynamic to the experience. Dialogue is perfectly centered and crisp throughout. Universal's Despicable Me soundtrack is about as good as it gets.
