Into the Wild

 (2007)

Into the Wild Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Into The Wild is inspired by the true story of Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch), a young man who abandons his life of comfort to pursue the freedom of life on the road, a quest that leads him to the Alaskan wilderness and the ultimate challenge of his life. Screenplay and directed by Sean Penn and featuring an all-star cast including William Hurt, Marcia Gay Harden, Vince Vaughn, Catherine Keener and Hal Halbrook, Into The Wild is "as stirring, entertaining and steadfastly thrilling as it is beautiful." (Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal).

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

Starring: Emile Hirsch, Marcia Gay Harden, William Hurt, Jena Malone, Catherine Keener, Vince Vaughn

Into the Wild Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the VC-1 codec (at an average bitrate of 33Mbps) Into the Wild looks impressive on Blu-ray. Detail isn't the sharpest I've seen, but the picture maintains a smooth, film-like texture that replicates every characteristic of the wilderness, wheat fields, or desert with a nice level of precision and clarity. Every now and again there's a shot that appears slightly less detailed than the rest of the film, but I'd wager that's a result of the source material and not a deficiency in the transfer. Given the subject matter of the film, it would have been a shame if the coloring were anything other than natural, but I'm pleased to report the color scheme is vivid but not overly saturated, allowing the environment of the Alaskan landscape or Grand Canyon to take center stage without coming across garish. Black levels and contrast are equally impressive throughout the daytime sequences, but I was disappointed in the appearance of black crush and a loss of shadow detail in the nighttime shots (look for the sequence where Christopher is talking to Rainy and Jan on the beach early in the film). Fortunately the nighttime shots are few and far between, but they still stand as the one flaw on an otherwise excellent transfer. Lastly, I never noticed the presence of edge halos, digital artifacting, banding, or other anomaly that could mar the presentation. This is truly the way Into the Wild was meant to be seen.


Into the Wild Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The primary audio track on the disc is a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix in the native language of English. The strength of the audio experience won't be readily apparent until you take the time to listen for the subtle environmental effects that grace your surround speakers in a non-obtrusive way. The various settings throughout the film offer a wealth of distinct sounds, from the rushing water of Alaskan streams to the crackle of footsteps on the sun-bleached landscape of Arizona. In addition to the impressive use of environmental effects in the soundstage, the dialogue and music are well-balanced, offering a complete package that places you side-by-side with McCandless as he ventures out on his journey. Vedder's songs are incorporated with a proficiency that allows his music to take center stage without pulling the viewer out of the film experience, which is a testament to Sean Penn's direction and Eddie Vedder's songwriting skills. If you loved Into the Wild on DVD (with lossy audio), you'll be pleasantly surprised with the improvements in this TrueHD experience.
