Driven Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Whatever issues one might have with Driven as a film, there shouldn't be any complaints about Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray's reproduction of cinematographer Mauro Fiore's (Avatar) colorful imagery. Director Harlin wanted to capture the excitement and pageantry of the sport, and wherever possible he took his cast and crew to actual racing events to film scenes with real drivers, crew and crowds in the background. For the race car scenes themselves, the effects team sorted through hours of footage to find material that they could adapt digitally to their needs by adding cars, recoloring existing cars and otherwise remaking the scene to conform to the story points.

The result is an image that is consistently sharp, detailed and colorful, with primaries dominating the scene, especially reds and blues. Blacks are deep and solid for indoor and night scenes, and there is no indication that the sharpness has been engineered through artificial means. The grain is fine with a natural-looking pattern and no apparent video noise. Indeed, the clarity of the image sometimes works against the film, because certain CG effects, which already looked questionable at the time of the film's release (e.g., the driver POV shots) now look truly dated.

Warner has appropriately given the film a BD-50 and a healthy average bitrate of 28.97 Mbps, which the plethora of action demands.


Driven Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

I have read that, for people who know engines, the sounds used for the CART racing machines in Driven are frequently wrong. Since I do not know engines, I can simply report that the lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 track is immersive and powerful, with wide dynamic range and deep bass extension. As much as the various camera tricks invented for the film, the sound mix is intended to give the viewer the sensation of sitting in the driver's seat and, on occasion, of being caught up in a collision. Crowd noise, sounds of pit crews at work and general hubbub are all part of the mix. In quieter scenes away from the manic activity of the racetrack, the mix provides a general sense of ambiance and atmosphere. The joyride through downtown Chicago has multiple sound effects as the whizzing race cars wreak havoc on the urban environment.

In his commentary, Harlin takes great pride in his extensive musical selections, which include songs by LeAnn Rimes, Fatboy Slim, Grand Theft Auto and the Ohio Players, among others. What little additional music was needed is credited to BT, who that same year also scored the original The Fast and the Furious.
