Empire State

Empire State Blu-ray delivers great video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

A drama centered on two childhood friends who plan to rob an armored car depository, and the NYPD officer who stands in their way.

For more about Empire State and the Empire State Blu-ray release, see Empire State Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Empire State Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Empire State is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.39:1. This digitally shot feature looks perfectly serviceable but just a bit unremarkable some of the time. Director Dito Montiel and cinematographer Dana Gonzales do very well with some of the location work, especially the teeming streets of claustrophobic neighborhoods. Things are a bit less striking in a lot of the interior scenes, where contrast is a little underwhelming at times and there simply isn't a lot of visual pop. Colors look very accurate if not oversaturated. As befits its source, the image is crisp and well defined, with excellent fine detail. There are no issues with aliasing or other compression artifacts despite the repeated use of busy New York skylines.


Empire State Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Empire State's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 may be a bit surprisingly restrained for some who will come to this outing based on Dwayne Johnson's participation and expect an LFE-fest. There are a couple of action set pieces here where there is in fact LFE and really well done surround activity, but a lot of this film is quieter dialogue moments which simply don't offer a lot of opportunity for overly active sonics. That said, there's good attention to detail here, with quite a bit of ambient environmental effects, including the omnipresent sounds of busy New York backgrounds. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range gets a couple of significant workouts when looking at the film as a whole.
