Movie appeal




Face/Off Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In this plot-twisting, high-tech thriller, relentless FBI agent Sean Archer must go dangerously undercover to investigate the location of a lethal biological weapon planted by his arch rival, the sadistic terrorist-for-hire Castor Troy. After undergoing a radical surgical procedure, Archer literally "borrows" Troy's face and identity to carry out his mission. But things go awry when Troy, emerging from a coma, transforms into Archer and wrecks havoc upon his life, both at work and at home. As the bomb continues to tick and the tension mounts, it becomes a high stakes game of cat and mouse as both Archer and Troy, ironically trapped in their enemy's body, try to save face their own.

Face/Off Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Face/Off finally arrives on Blu-ray high definition, its 1080p, 2.35:1 transfer a solid one. This transfer is noticeably grain-free, raising the question as to just how much noise reduction was applied to this title. While the image is a good one overall, there are times where the transfer suffers from an odd appearance, most notably on several close-up shots of the actors. A scene where Pollux and Castor Troy (who is really Archer) are discussing the location of the bomb in prison is notably off, both actors looking like wax statues with very little detail on their faces. Either that, or they are both caked in make-up in that shot. The transfer also exhibits very minor but continuous speckles of dirt on the print itself. Overall, however, many Blu-ray fans should be pleased with the look of this movie. Clarity and resolution are solid and detail is fairly high. Some close-up shots do reveal some fine detail; we can see every grain of Archer's five o'clock shadow and almost too clearly see the hairs on his fingers in one particular close-up of his hand. Black levels are excellent, the image never seeming too bright or gray in black spaces. Colors are neither dull nor overly bright. In other words, color reproduction is spot-on. The movie never really goes for a special color scheme, pushing particular hues more so than others or employing a more "artsy" look, except for in the prison sequences where everything is a shade of blue, gray, or green. The colors of a U.S. Flag seen draped on a coffin near the end of the film, for example, look stunningly perfect, the flag never having looked so good in high-definition. It's not often that this image loses its sharp edge and becomes soft, but it does on occasion, notably in chapter 20 when Troy (as Archer) disarms the bomb. The film's climax, which takes place in speedboats on the water, looks great -- bright, vibrant, and clear. This is definitely a solid high definition viewing experience. It won't win transfer of the year (or last year, as the case may be), but it's definitely nothing to sneeze at, either.

Face/Off Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Undeniably the strongest aspect of this disc is the amazing lossy sound mixes it employs. Both a Dolby Digital 5.1 EX and a DTS 6.1 soundtrack are included, and for the purpose of this review I selected the DTS mix. To call this one loud is an understatement. It's deafening; the track just keeps getting louder and louder, and only minutes in I was forced to turn the volume down from reference level. Nevertheless, the track proves itself to be one of, if not the most active and dynamic I've heard, lossless or not, and it is an absolute blast to listen to. The dream-like opening sequence of the movie puts every speaker to work, including the subwoofer. Sound sweeps the room along with the merry-go-round and deep bass permeates several scenes. Then, a gunshot rings out, and the sound is so effective you can almost feel the impact of the bullet passing through you and your media room as it flies from the back channels to the front. The film's music is room-filling and exciting. "Loud" doesn't always equate to "good," and it did seem that some of the finer details of the mix could have been brought out just a bit better with a high-def track. Still, bass is probably as powerful as anything I've heard before. A scene where an airplane crashes through a hangar early in the movie felt as if it might bring my house crumbling down too, and that was after I had turned down the volume. This isn't the only instance of the bass going absolutely berserk. It's like that in many of the action sequences, truly the harshest workout my subwoofer has ever been through, and that includes what it endured during films like Black Hawk Down and Saving Private Ryan. Surround channels are put to great use as well. When Troy (really Archer) arrives in prison, there is some fantastic echoing as the prison guard tells him what to expect. The rear channels definitely handle the reverberations well, adding a great sense of realism to the mix. In many actions scenes, gunshots fill the rear channels as do the impact of the rounds into surfaces and humans. Shots are loud and precise, and we truly feel immersed in each and every firefight. If you are just looking for a loud and crazy soundtrack, this is definitely it, and listening to it will probably be the most fun you'll have with a lossy track to date. As far as "standard definition soundtracks go, this is absolutely the best I've heard, but it still loses a point for not being offered in high definition on a high definition format disc.
