Drillbit Taylor

 (2008)

Drillbit Taylor Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

It all begins on the first day of high school, when a trio of anxious freshmen—chubby Ryan, freakishly skinny Wade and their shrimpy tagalong, Emmit—become the instant target of the school's senior psycho-in-residence, Filkins, the ultimate school bully. As what they were hoping to be the best years of their lives are suddenly turned into a daily living hell, the boys realize they have only one choice—to hire their own personal bodyguard. Enter Drillbit Taylor, not the best but definitely the cheapest of the mercenaries, hit men and bodyguards who answer their online ad. Drillbit is steely, dangerous and skilled in covert black-ops and exotic martial arts. He's also a complete fraud. He bluffs and cajoles the credulous trio through his cockamamie boot camp and, after several hilarious missteps, instills in them new skills and some much needed confidence. But when push comes to shove—and more pushing and more shoving—Drillbit seems to be no match for Filkins' reign of terror. Now it's up to Ryan, Wade and Emmit to transform this down-and-out drifter into the savior he originally promised to be.

Drillbit Taylor Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Drillbit Taylor arrives on Blu-ray in a 1080p high definition, 2.35:1 framed transfer. All things considered, the film looks very good. Colors are vibrant and stand out in many scenes. In fact, Drillbit Taylor is one of the most colorful films I've seen and it pushes the boundaries of "natural" versus "hot" color reproduction. Many colors, notably reds, seem to stand out as overly saturated and intense in relation to the more natural hues of Drillbit's standard-issue olive drab GI shirt, for example. Some shots also exhibit slightly golden or yellow tints that often reflect off flesh tones and, as a result, alter their appearance from natural to processed. Drillbit Taylor is a an extremely bright movie that is well-lit in nearly every scene, even the nighttime scenes. It appeared to me that this entire look was intentional on the part of the filmmakers; we seem to be seeing a trend of releasing films with over-exaggerated colors and odd tints and glows about them recently (especially films of this genre), and this seems to be another one of them. One aspect of Drillbit Taylor that is truly exceptional is the level of visible detail. Even background objects, which tend to be fuzzy and undefined on many transfers, are highly detailed and clearly visible on this film. Foreground objects fare very well, too. Every strand of hair is visible on character's heads. The straw hat that Taylor wears looks realistically worn, dirty, and old. Each scuff mark on the school's hallway floor, blade of grass on the lawn, branch and leaf on trees, tile on the restroom wall, and dent in the lockers, comes together to bring the movie to life in a way we rarely see in even the best Blu-ray releases. Black levels were consistently solid throughout, and film grain is not readily apparent on this image. I did notice at least one instance of obvious shimmering and jaggies in the image as seen on a striped tie worn by Drillbit at one point in the movie. Nevertheless, is a solid transfer likely to please most Blu-ray fans.

  3.5 of 5

Drillbit Taylor won't excite the aural senses with its Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. As a comedy, listeners shouldn't expect a film like this one to set the sonic world on fire, and it doesn't. It's a pleasing enough listen, and a solid compliment to the film, a film that is dialogue-centric with not much more than music and the occasionally pleasing ambient sounds of school and nature to add much more to an otherwise dull soundtrack. Dialogue reproduction is excellent, as expected; it is center-focused and clean with no obvious volume issues in relation to the rest of the soundtrack. There is a noticeable rear channel presence, but only on occasion, be it a nice, blowing breeze, student chatter in the bustling school hallways, busses or other vehicles moving around the parking lot, and the like. Still, much of the movie is front-heavy, but that's alright. There is decent directionality as sounds move across the front soundstage during a few shots, but don't expect too much activity from this one. Drillbit Taylor met my expectations for the soundtrack. It's a solid enough listen and serves as a perfect compliment to the proceedings without becoming phony or forced, involving or placing sounds for the sake of amped-up effects that don't fit the mood of the film.
