Immortal

 (2004)

Immortal Blu-ray features poor video and solid audio in this poor Blu-ray release

New York City, year 2095. A floating pyramid has emerged in the skies above, inhabited by ancient Egyptian Gods. They have cast judgment down upon Horus (a falcon-headed god), one of their own. With only seven days to preserve his immortality, he must find a human host body to inhabit, and search for a mate. In the city below, a beautiful young woman, Jill, with blue hair, blue tears, and a power unknown even to her, wanders the city in search for her identity aided by a doctor who is fascinated by this mystery of nature. Reality in this world has a whole new meaning as bodies, voices and memories converge with Gods, mutants, mortals and extra terrestrials. Stunning visual effects meld with poetic surrealism of comic-book creator Enki Bilal's fantastic epic story. A ground-breaking step into the future of film-making.

For more about Immortal and the Immortal Blu-ray release, see Immortal Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Charlotte Rampling, Thomas Kretschmann, Linda Hardy, Frederic Pierrot, Thomas M. Pollard, Yann Collette

Immortal Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Okay, you say, maybe the film is terrible but it should at least offer some stunning high definition imagery, right? Unfortunately, no. Immortal shall live forever on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's dull and indistinct. I'm not sure if it's due to the compositing process or some post-production blundering, but Immortal only looks marginally better than a poorly transferred standard definition release. Overall clarity is remarkably soft; textures are mucky and undefined, edges are blurry or else ringed with heavy black outlines, and fine detail is only middling in even the sharpest of the film's close-up shots. Though I'm not sure, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the picture here had been upscaled. I'm assuming the softness is an attempt to make the actors blend in better with the CGI backgrounds, which also accounts for the artificial grain that's been layered over the digital shots and that sometimes contrasts with the natural grain from the 35mm film used on the live action elements. The film's color scheme is appropriately bleak, with a predominantly grayish-bluish-greenish cast that's only broken up by fleeting flashes of strong color, like the man-shark's red skin, Jill's crazy blue hair, or the green haze inside the bar. Black levels and contrast are adequate, but don't expect a vivid, eye-popping picture. As you'll notice from the screenshots, the image has been windowboxed on all sides, presumably to protect from televisions that over-scan. On your television, the black bars may or may not be visible.


Immortal Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Okay, you say, the film is terrible and the picture quality is beyond bland, but Immortal should at least contain a decent audio experience, right? On this point, I'm obliged to partially agree, as the film is given a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track that proves to be the sole highlight of a package filled with low moments. For a movie filmed entirely on a so-called "digital backlot," Immortal has a fairly lively soundfield that's populated by immersive ambience and crisp, clean sound effects. The surround channels don't exactly clock overtime, but you will hear hover- cars racing through the rear speakers, along with public service announcements, impressionistic audio flourishes, and place-establishing noise. I was at times impressed by the film's dynamic range (although, in hindsight, I was probably just looking to be impressed by something, anything), which encompasses a surprising amount of LFE rumble and a clear high-end. The dialogue, however, is a mixed bag. The dubbing, especially for Linda Hardy, is overly noticeable at times, and I found the opening voice-over narration to be strangely muffled. Still, everyone is easy to understand, even if what they're saying doesn't really make any sense. Equally baffling is the presence of two songs by Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Ros, who should know better than to attach their music to such a monumental failure of a film.
