Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 20Mbps), Advent Children Complete is officially the new demonstration disc for my home theater. Detail through the majority of the film is impeccable, with the finest details becoming noticeable due to the increased resolution. There's still some occasional softness that creeps up from time to time, but it appears to be related to an intentional use of visual effects (such as increased brightness from the large windows of the church, or sand blown by the wind in several outdoor sequences) and didn't diminish my viewing experience. In addition to the reference level of detail, colors appeared bold and vibrant when appropriate (flowers in the church and the crimson of Vincent's cape), or muted and drab in scenes of the desolate landscape. Contrast was as good as I've seen on a Blu-ray release, with Kadaj's wooded lair standing as one of many showcase sequences in the film. The deep blacks of the background help elevate the three-dimensional nature of the glowing trees in the forest, and created a wonderful lighting effect that would not have been possible without perfect black levels and contrast.

My only complaint about the transfer (and the only thing preventing it from receiving a perfect score) is the occasional appearance of aliasing on fine lines. I noticed it several times during camera pans and the best example I can provide would be to look at the top of Cloud's sword at the 1:36:50 mark of the film. It may not be noticeable at a screen size of 50 inches or less, but on a 100 inch screen, even the smallest imperfections become apparent.

Overall, this is a reference-worthy transfer with pristine animation and beautifully incorporated action. If you have a friend who loves anime, and questions the validity of stepping up to 1080p resolution, pop in this disc and welcome him or her to the world of Blu-ray.


Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

A perfect audio track offers a blend of spatial effects, music and dialogue to create a viewing experience that completely immerses the listener in the world of the film. I've rarely had the opportunity to hear such a track, but I'm pleased to report the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Japanese track for this film is one of the most incredible audio tracks I've had the pleasure of listening to. Dialogue exhibits an immaculate level of detail in any range or pitch, but I was most impressed with the deep voices of several male characters. The music is equally crisp and efficiently incorporated in a non-obtrusive way next to the on-screen action. On a film that runs the emotional gamut, it has to be difficult to create a musical score that always seems appropriate, and Advent Children contains some truly inspired musical numbers. Lastly, the use of spatial separation and environmental effects were handled with precision across the entire sound field of my home theater. From the subtlety of a ringing bell, to the explosion of a building, you'll notice the tiniest sounds and details in the audio mix, while marveling at the wealth of sounds hitting your ears. I especially enjoyed the battles that took place on the massive bikes in the desert and on the freeway. Those sequences reminded me of the freeway scene from Matrix: Reloaded (without the inclusion of poor CGI), and will likely stand as my new demo material for showing off my obsession with home theater.

For anyone who's interested in the English track (also offered in Dolby TrueHD 5.1), the track is nearly as proficient as the Japanese mix, but I detected a slight drop in non-dialogue volume next to the original language offering. It's not extremely noticeable, and wouldn't have been an issue if I weren't switching back and forth on the fly, but those that prefer the English dub (which is actually quite good) should be aware there's a slight difference between the two tracks.
