John Carter 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

At least no one can fault Disney's otherworldly 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer for John Carter's woes. While the precision crafted presentation makes some of the film's more problematic CG shots that much more problematic, blame can't be assigned to the encode itself. Colors are warm, sun-bleached and striking, with strangely earthy alien-desert browns and yellows, dazzling golds, blazing reds, brilliant blues and deep, cavernous blacks. Skintones never falter either, under the hot glare of the Martian sun, below the planet's surface, or beneath the night sky. Detail is extraordinary as well; not so sharp as to suggest artificial means, but crisp, exacting and oh-so-filmic. Textures leap to life, refined and meticulously resolved. Edges are perfectly defined, without any significant ringing or aliasing to worry over. Delineation is revealing, pulling back the curtain of Barsoom's shadows just enough to get a glimpse of anything that lies within the darkness. And clarity and contrast are consistent and unwavering, leaving little room for criticism. Artifacting, crush, smearing and other issues are held at bay, and the tiny hints of banding that occur are so negligible and fleeting that it almost seems silly to mention them. Regardless of whether or not John Carter amazes you, its high definition presentation will do nothing less.

Disney's 3D version of the film is another matter. Though the MVC encode possesses the same high-quality technical traits as its 2D counterpart, the post-converted 3D experience leaves something to be desired. Depth is decent, and the bright, colorful world Stanton and company have created lends itself to 3D. But, even at its best, the presentation exhibits a pop-up storybook plane-to-plane layering that isn't as full, involving or convincing as it might have been had the film been shot in native 3D. Sequences built from the ground up with CG are more engaging than most, but the actors look as if they've been stacked on top of the at-times flat Martian landscape. Airships, Tharks and other alien structures and creatures have more dimensionality than Carter and his fellow humanoids, and the 3D takes another hit anytime the adventure moves indoors. Is it a mediocre 3D experience? Not at all. I'd even go so far as to call it above average. But will it draw you into the worlds of Barsoom? Will it send you leaping across the skies with John Carter? Will its armies charge out of the screen? Not quite. Many of the elements are almost there, but almost isn't enough to drop jaws and leave 3D junkies breathless.


John Carter 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The adventure spills over into Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track too. Ships pass overhead, giant monsters smash their meaty fists on the ground, Tharks thunder across the Martian plains, arena spectators roar, energy weapons disintegrate aircraft, flying chariots whiz past... John Carter delivers a wealth of sonic wonders. LFE output is bold and bewildering, taking every thoom and rumble to task. Even when the visuals don't feel properly grounded, the film's lossless mix lends welcome weight and brings the action back down to Earth (or Mars as it were). The rear speakers step up as well, expanding and enriching the Barsoom cities, the Martian deserts, and Michael Giacchino's genre score with unflinching ambient support, stirring directional effects, and exceedingly effective cross-channel pans. Meanwhile, dialogue, ever distinct and perfectly intelligible, stands strong and weathers any chaos Carter's enemies unleash. Voices are clear and nicely centered, distant shouts and screams emanate from every direction, and crowds envelop the listener and draw filmfans deeper into the world of Barsoom than Disney's 3D video presentation. Suffice it to say, John Carter sounds every bit as good as it looks, and fans will be delighted with the results.
