Gran Torino Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Gran Torino premieres on Blu-ray with a fine 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer. Colors throughout appear somewhat dull with perhaps just the slightest hint towards sepia, but are nevertheless stable and well-rendered. Whether the reddish-brown bricks that make up parts of the neighborhood houses or the varied shades of green that adorn the foliage seen up and down the street or in Kowalski's backyard, the image offers a spectrum of colors that look nice even in context of the film's slightly vintage look. Detail impresses, too, with objects both near- and far-frame revealing fine textures and nuances that demonstrate the superiority of the image. Depth, too, impresses, the film appearing spacious and realistic in most every shot. Generally, the transfer appears sharp and clear, with only a few shots taking on a hint of softness. Blacks are generally inky and true, flesh tones take on a natural appearance in the context of the film's intended look, but a few jagged edges appear sporadically. Fine grain appears visible yet minimal in presence at normal viewing distances. The image reflects the tone of the picture, and like every other aspect of the filmmaking process, effortlessly fading into the background in favor of the film's superb emotional core.


Gran Torino Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Gran Torino revs its engines and reveals a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. This is a quiet, reserved soundtrack, where even the dialogue requires a bit of effort to make out at reference volume. Though generally clear, a few scenes, such as a conversation between Kowalski and Sue in chapter 17, plays almost like it's been filtered through a tin can. Nevertheless, the rest of the soundtrack delivers a suitable experience, though the amount of information funneled through to the speakers seems minimal compared to most other tracks. The organ music that opens the film inside the church plays with a natural flair, and the priest's words echo pleasantly throughout the cavernous sanctuary. Outdoor scenes throughout the film create an incredibly realistic atmosphere. A dog barks off in the distance; a slight breeze rustles leaves; a police siren screams off to the left of the soundstage. The few gunshots heard throughout the film -- a single shot and two separate barrages -- offer an ample but not completely realistic level of heft and presence. There's not much to the track at all. Like the video, the film's sound design takes a backseat to the emotional core of the film and offers little more than the basic necessities required of it.
