Hostage

 (2005)

Hostage Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Devastated by an unspeakable tragedy while on the job as a hostage negotiator for the LAPD, Jeff Tally resigns and accepts a low-profile job as the chief of police in the sleepy town of Bristo Camino in Ventura County. On a slow Monday morning Talley's job becomes anything but quiet and sets him on a course that could change not only his professional but personal life forever.

When three delinquent teenagers follow a family home, intending to steal their car, they get more than they bargained for. The trio finds themselves trapped in a multi-million dollar compound on the outskirts of town with no way of escape. Panicked, they take the family hostage, placing Talley in a situation he never wanted to face again.

For more about Hostage and the Hostage Blu-ray release, see Hostage Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Hostage Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Hostage arrives on Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Director Florent Siri and Director of Photography Giovanni Fiore Coltellacci go for an intentionally stylized look which this Blu-ray largely reproduces to a tee. As is so common in films from the mid-1990's on, the image is desaturated at times and at others filtered toward the blue or yellow ends of the spectrum. A lot of this film plays out at night, and black levels are solid, though crush is evident in some of the darkest sequences. There's one really egregious bit of aliasing in those opening credits mentioned above—keep your eyes on the power poles early in the sequence. Otherwise, though, this is a very sharp and appealing transfer that boasts excellent (if sometimes oddly filtered) color that is very well saturated, abundant fine detail and a very clean and invigorating look.


Hostage Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Hostage's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is one of the most sonically bombastic mixes in recent memory, one which should give any audiophile's home theater system a good workout. LFE is omnipresent in this film, from the usual suspects like rapid gunfire, but also from some judiciously used sound effects and score choices which keep the viewer on edge, if subliminally. Surround activity is very good and very forceful at times, with lots of panning effects (listen for the helicopters which dot the soundfield throughout the film) and good use of side and rear channels. Fidelity is very strong with incredible dynamic range. Dialogue is always easy to hear and is very well mixed in an often times extremely busy sonic array. This is one film where you may want to start with your volume control set a little lower than you usually do, for Hostage presents an extremely aggressive use of lossless audio.
