Gattaca

 (1997)

Gattaca Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In the 21st century, genetic engineering makes possible the creation of biologically superior human specimens ("valids"), who then grow to positions of power and prestige. Would-be astronaut Vincent born the old-fashioned way, can only hope for a janitorial position at the elite Gattaca Corporation — until he buys the blood, urine, and identity of a perfect but paralyzed athlete. But a murder in the company's ranks attracts the attention of a detective who threatens to sniff Vincent out.

For more about Gattaca and the Gattaca Blu-ray release, see Gattaca Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Jude Law, Gore Vidal, Alan Arkin, Xander R. Berkeley
Director: Andrew Niccol

Gattaca Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sony has given Gattaca their standard 1080p treatment using the AVC/Mpeg-4 compression codec. The film is presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.40:1, so black bars will be present on the top and bottom of the screen. Gattaca was filmed using a large number of filters and other techniques to give it a very unique, almost sepia-toned look. All of the film's outdoor scenes have a yellowish hue to them, perhaps intending to signify some sort of environmental problem in this future society. Indoor scenes are vivid and brightly colored in most spots. Gattaca is also a very shadowy film. Many scenes seem to exist as the camera weaves in and out of shadows and dark locations.

Over all, Gattaca looks remarkable on Blu-ray. This had to be a very tricky film to encode and the results are often breathtaking. Black levels and shadow detail are spot-on while color is appropriately vivid. Flesh-tones are also well represented and often mimic the tone of the environment they are placed within. There are no compression artifacts present with the exception of a slight amount of edge enhancement. It's a real shame to see this, as it mars an otherwise perfect Blu-ray presentation. Fortunately, it isn't excessive to the point of being distracting. Ultimately, despite its many visual challenges Gattaca on Blu-ray hits almost all of the right notes.


Gattaca Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

As is the case with almost all of Sony's latest Blu-ray releases, Gattaca arrives with a stellar 48kHz/16-bit lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track. In addition to the standard English soundtrack, alternate language support is also provided in the form of both French and Portuguese Dolby TrueHD tracks as well as a Spanish Dolby Digital offering. Subtitles are also plentiful with support for English, English SDH, French, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Thai and Portuguese. Native speakers of Klingon are, once again, out of luck.

Gattaca isn't a terribly involving film from a surround standpoint, but there are a number of pivotal scenes in which surround plays an important part. Take for example the scene where Vincent and Irene (Uma Thurman) have to race across a busy expressway: The surround channels are intensely active during this heart-pounding moment as cars whiz and buzz around the surround field. Aside from this moment, there isn't much more to Gattaca than dialogue and the occasional ambient fill. Of course, the TrueHD track does its job admirably by rendering dialogue as crisp and clear at all times. Gattaca won't impress your friends with explosions and gunfire, but it is otherwise exactly as it should be.
