Eight Below Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Eight Below pulls onto Blu-ray with an above-average 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer. Though an early release from Disney, this disc yields a good image, one that is nicely detailed, crisp, and enjoyably film-like in texture. The picture is often saturated in shades of white and gray; however, colors can be vibrant at times, particularly as brightly-colored jackets contrast against the many white snow-covered landscapes and gray overcast skies that compose the Antarctic landscape. Additionally, the transfer excels in adding layers of visual realism to the barren landscapes; snow-covered and generally solid-white land and rock formations often enjoy excellent texturing. Snow rarely looks like a massive and undefined white glob, save for some scenes such as one in chapter five during a blowing snowstorm where whiteout conditions and bleak, textureless formations are to be expected. Additionally, the image offers fine detailing on heavy winter clothing -- particularly woven caps and fur collars -- and human faces, whether Paul Walker's slightly scruffy facial hair or Bruce Greenwood's wrinkly mug. Shadow detail is nicely realized and black levels prove deep and true throughout. Skin tones also take on a neutral appearance, influenced sometimes by frigid conditions but remaining as one would expect given the various environmental hardships encountered throughout the film. Disney's print is in fine shape, exhibiting only the odd speckle, and a light coating of grain covers what is a very good, but not quite exceptional, Blu-ray transfer.


Eight Below Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney provides Eight Below with a high quality PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack. The track consistently incorporates the back channels for both musical support and atmospheric effects. As to the music, this PCM offering delivers each note crisply and with a full presence that makes fine use of the entire soundstage. Whether more subtle notes or amped-up action-oriented pieces, such as that heard in chapter 10, the track presents each segment of the score with a clarity that brings the film to life and draws the listener into the Eight Below experience. The track also implements some environmental atmospherics, and to fine effect. In several scenes, cold winds blow harshly about the listening area and almost seem to bring with them a palpable chill, the effect filling the entire soundstage and making for a very strongly-realized environmental support element. Additionally, several chunks of shifting ice crack and maneuver about each speaker in the configuration, with an added bonus of some potent bass. Dialogue reproduction is crisp and natural throughout, completing a track that's not the most aggressive or natural out there, but one that's certainly a strongly-realized companion to a solid film.
