Europa Report Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Europa Report was shot by Enrique Chediak, who also shot director Cordero's 2004 feature Crónicas, as well as The Faculty for Robert Rodriguez and 127 Hours for Danny Boyle. Given the video nature of the footage, the principal challenge for Magnolia Home Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is to present an accurate record of the various interviews, which are, for the most part, distinctively lit and colorful, and of the Europa One spaceship's various recorders, which are generally clear and sharp, but flat and dull without much in the way of bright or saturated colors, except upon the approach to the mission's destination, when the planet Jupiter comes into view. As one would expect from automated systems, a degree of video noise appears in response to bright light sources, but this is almost certainly intentional.

Otherwise, the footage is generally clean and detailed, except where deliberate glitches have been introduced in post-production to reflect interference (a key plot point once the landing module reaches Europa) or damage to the ship (which occurs from several causes). Some of the news footage is less than pristine, presumably to simulate the quality of the genuine article. Since the elaborate effects work was created digitally and the film was finished on a digital intermediate, it's safe to assume that the Blu-ray was sourced from digital files. What we see is undoubtedly what we're meant to see.

The average bitrate of 22.98 Mbps is perfectly adequate for a digitally originated project. If there were any compression errors, they were hidden in the glitches and effects work.


Europa Report Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As composer Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica) explains in the extras, his score for Europa Report has two elements. One is a traditional orchestral underscore, which he kept minimalist and non-intrusive. The other involves synthesizers and low tones that McCreary intended to blend with the film's sound design, which is largely front-oriented to complement the documentary illusion. It is McCreary's score, with both of its components, that truly opens out the film's soundtrack, filling the listening space with odd groans and ominous portents. A series of earthquake-like rumbles after the landing module has set down on Europa provides additional sonic excitement late in the film, but for most of its running time, Europa Report relies on McCreary's contribution to expand the silence of space into something more dramatically active. The Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack reproduces the various elements of the crew's activities and McCreary's score with precision, broad dynamic range and deep bass extension. Dialogue is generally clear, although a few of the accents are occasionally thick enough to warrant assistance from the optional English SDH subtitles.
