Event Horizon

 (1997)

Event Horizon Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

The year is 2047. Years earlier, the pioneering research vessel Event Horizon vanished without a trace. Now a signal from it has been detected, and the United States Aerospace Command responds. Hurtling toward the signal's source are a fearless captain (Laurence Fishburne), his elite crew and the lost ship's designer (Sam Neill). Their mission: find and salvage the state- of-the-art spacecraft. What they find is state-of-the-art interstellar terror. What they must salvage are their own lives, because someone or something is ready to ensnare them in a new dimension of unimaginable fear. Costarring Kathleen Quinlan.

For more about Event Horizon and the Event Horizon Blu-ray release, see Event Horizon Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Laurence Fishburne, Sam Neill, Kathleen Quinlan, Joely Richardson, Richard T. Jones, Jack Noseworthy

Event Horizon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Event Horizon folds onto Blu-ray with a quality 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer. Though this transfer doesn't necessarily jump off the screen with a barrage of realistic, deep, and clear imagery, there is nevertheless a solid level of visible detail, ranging from drops of water on Sam Neill's body after coming out of extended stasis to the caked-on grime seen on the various surfaces of the Clark and Horizon. The image exhibits some spots over the print that are noticeable but never overly distracting. Some of the dark, hazy, interior shots of the Horizon hold up very well, with no immediate visual anomalies. There are a few very minor instances of banding in a few places, but it is never obvious or much of a distraction. The film is rather dark in general, and blacks play an integral role in the look and feel of the film. They could be a bit deeper in some shots, but they hold up rather well throughout. Grain is present but never too heavy, and it is only most apparent over darker backgrounds. Flesh tones always look natural and rich under each lighting condition thrown at them, from the bright, fluorescent lights aboard the Clark early in the film to the deepest, darkest, poorly-lit innards of the Event Horizon. Paramount has delivered a solid transfer that will please this film's fan base.


Event Horizon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Event Horizon enters the lossless dimension via a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack. The soundstage feels a bit cramped and limited in range during the pulsating opening theme that plays over the credits. The track picks up during the film; the opening shot of the ship is accompanied by a hefty amount of bass, and various sounds pan around the listening area with ease. Inside the Clark, there is little in the way of ambience. The hum of the engine is heard, but there is never much of a sense of actually being on board. The Clark's bumpy arrival into Neptune orbit in chapter five features plenty of visual rattling and rolling, but the accompanying audio is only moderately aggressive. A series of explosions in chapter seven features a good amount of bass and fine surround presence, both of which support the visuals well. Dialogue sometimes sounds a bit tiny and muffled. A discussion amongst the crew as to the events of the film in chapter 10 seems to show a discernible loss in volume. Later in the chapter, bass pounds away at an appreciably high level. The soundtrack is generally hit-or-miss; the hits are great, and fortunately the misses are only near misses. The track is never a disaster, just a slight letdown in a few places.
