Generation Kill

 (TV) (2008)

Generation Kill Blu-ray comes close to perfection with top scores all around making it one of the best Blu-ray's ever

Based on the national best-selling book by Evan Wright, Generation Kill is an authentic and vividly detailed 7 part HBO mini-series event that presents a uniquely epic and intimate portrait of the first 40 days of the Iraq war from the perspective of the Marines of the First Recon Battalion – a new breed of American soldiers.

For more about Generation Kill and the Generation Kill Blu-ray release, see Generation Kill Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: Alexander Skarsgård, James Ransone, Lee Tergesen, Jon Huertas, Stark Sands (I), Billy Lush
Directors: Susanna White, Simon Cellan Jones

Generation Kill Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

There will no doubt be those who complain about Generation Kill's pulpy 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. Grim? Overblown contrast and aggressive shadows make sure of it. Gritty? Shaky, rough-hewn footage curses the most stable scenes with soft edges and indistinct backgrounds. Grainy? The picture is packed with such intense filmic texture that it doesn't resemble the latest special effects extravaganza or high definition camera showcase in the slightest. But you know what? I wouldn't want it any other way. Colors are bleached but bold, skintones are stark but fitting, detail is inconsistent but entirely effective. In fact, I haven't seen a more exacting alignment of thematic tone and technical image in some time. Despite the abundance of bouncing vehicles and unsteady cameras, the transfer boasts a degree of aesthetic integrity that captures the directors', series creator's, and cinematographer Ivan Strasburg's every intention. More importantly, artifacting, banding, and intrusive post-production meddling (overzealous artificial sharpening and pesky noise reduction to be specific) are nowhere to be found. If any charge can be leveled against the Blu-ray edition of Generation Kill, it's that black levels are rarely resolved and tend to fall short of their desired depth (especially during the miniseries' many nighttime scenes). However, considering the nature of the production, it isn't an unexpected issue.

Faithful and proficient to a fault, Generation Kill's high definition presentation is an enthralling medley of emotion and photography that will leave those with appropriate expectations breathless. It may not be the sort of go-to demo material you're looking for, it may not slap you across the face or leave you rubbing your eyes, but it is an excellent transfer that bests its HD broadcast, trounces its standard DVD counterpart, and helps make this release worth every dime.


Generation Kill Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Stray bullets whump into the roadside as Marines scramble across a slippery slope of scattering earth and rock. The heavy plating of a Humvee rattles and groans as the souls inside banter about their lives in the States. A nighttime ambush erupts with booming explosions and jarring gunfire that matches the visceral intensity of the on-screen chaos. That's right dear readers, the wily wizards at HBO have once again proven they know how to put together a fierce and ferocious DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Like the miniseries, the mix isn't always packed with ricocheted bullets and crumbling bricks: dialogue (whether whispered or barked) is clean and intelligible, authentic environmental ambience peppers each and every scene, and prioritization is impeccable. Yes, voices are often overwhelmed during violent encounters with Iraqi insurgents, but it's an intentional product of the series' masterful, nail-biting sound design. LFE support is powerful and robust as well, injecting nuanced weight into the already absorbing soundfield. Directionality is insanely precise, pans are smooth and natural, and dynamics will absolutely blow you away. The sonics aren't pretty, they aren't overtly polished, but they are extremely effective: Generation Kill joins True Blood as a demonstration of HBO's commitment to providing fans with jaw-dropping, ear-shattering lossless audio presentations.
