Iron Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

When I saw Iron Man at the local AMC, it appeared to have heavy grain in many scenes, such as the action taking place in Afghanistan, that lent a news-like realism to those sequences. But the 2.40:1, 1080p video on the Blu-ray is cleaner and clearer--nearly noise-free. What happened? Either the film was subject to digital noise reduction to produce the BD content, or it was sourced from video that was later post-produced to look grainy for the theatrical release. Either way, the picture on the Blu-ray appears highly defined and life-like, with a vibrance and resolution that escalate it to reference quality. I will not deduce points because Paramount opted to produce the Blu-ray differently than the theatrical release. I wish that was the case, as I have no aversion to film grain and want to see film as the director intended. But who can blame Paramount for pursuing a cleaner look after Warner received so much criticism for the grain in 300, for example. Whatever the reason for the difference between the theatrical and Blu-ray video, there is no question that only a rarified few BDs have better picture. Detail may be lacking a bit in some scenes, but it's mostly during motion, when the camera and/or the objects in the picture are moving.

Watch the scene near the beginning, when the reporter wakes up in Tony's Malibu mansion. From showing her in the living room, the camera pulls away about a half mile off the coast to show the estate high on a cliff above the Pacific Ocean. The camera then pans to the right. In all of this, the video appears vibrant, but a touch soft due to the camera motion. What is more notable is the warmth of the colors, with lifelike earth tones and good depth to the picture. Darker scenes are equally impressive, and often more detailed. Watch the cave scene when Tony first regains consciousness after his injuries. Black level is excellent and there is a good contrast balance. Skin looks especially lifelike, and fabrics show good detail. Amazingly, the picture looks clean without losing definition, depth and palpability. I often felt as though the screen was a window and I could simply step into the action in the film.


Iron Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

With a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track, the audio performance of Iron Man features the most aggressive LFE content this reviewer has ever heard. I wouldn't call the audio "bass-heavy", because it maintained a good balance. It's just that an incredible amount of material is assigned to the subwoofer, which effectively shook the room. We're talking prodigious levels here. If you share a wall or your floor is someone's ceiling, you may seriously want to consider turning your subwoofer down. From each time Iron Man took a step, to blasts of munitions in the hills of Afghanistan, to jet engines achieving supersonic speed, the LFE content maintains an important partner to the action on the screen. So too are the other channels. The front left and right prove almost as important as the center in the mix, with the rears mainly being used for ambient noises. This created a wide soundstage that is not as immersive as other action films making more use of the surround channels.

The audio engineering is overall excellent, with live action appearing wide and powerful while noises coming from plasma screens in Tony's home, for example, sounded narrow and constricted. It was an interesting mix--one that works very well with the film's style. I especially liked that it avoided gimmicks and ping-pong stereophonics, although the subwoofer content pushes the envelope. Fans of deep bass will certainly like it. The film's orchestral score appeared a bit squashed dynamically, but most will enjoy its warm sound. I could not pick out good definition in the massed strings or wind instruments but the score is only a small part of the soundtrack. Voices and effects sound detailed and resolve convincingly--often in a realistic manner. I would have preferred a PCM track, but I do tend to prefer TrueHD to DTS- HD Master Audio that sometimes have unnatural sounding treble. So I was pleased that Paramount did not stick me with the latter.
