Knowing

 (2009)

Knowing Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A single father and chairman of his town's historical society is summoned when a time capsule buried behind an elementary school in 1958 is prematurely unearthed because of a water-main break. The man, whose son attends the school, sifts through the contents and finds drawings of what 1958 tykes predicted the modern world would be like. It's all flying cars and fantasy stuff, with the exception of one chilling entry. One child predicted some of the most horrible events in recent history, and there's one that hasn't yet occurred, which the man attempts to prevent.

For more about Knowing and the Knowing Blu-ray release, see Knowing Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne, Chandler Canterbury, Ben Mendelsohn (I), Lara Robinson, Adrienne Pickering

Knowing Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Knowing features a jaw-dropping 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer. Most every shot throughout the film dazzles with incredible depth, unmatched clarity, intricate details, and amazing colors. Particularly stunning are the film's bright outdoor shots that capture the beauty of a Northeastern fall marvelously. The orange and golden leaves leap off the screen; don't be surprised if the area in front of the display device requires raking after the movie. Also impressive are the hues found on the clothing worn by students and faculty both in the 1959 open and at the 2009 ceremony. The red, white, and blue ribbons and bunting sparkle, and even the bronze of the time capsule cover takes on a perfectly realistic appearance. The level of visible detail never falters, either. No matter the object and no matter its place in the frame or relation to the camera, the transfer absorbs every last nuance and recreates it with amazing accuracy. Captured not on film but rather on the Red One digital camera, Knowing takes on a high-quality cinematic appearance that truly does bring the magic of motion pictures on the big screen to the home. If the transfer has one fault, it is that blacks sometimes appear just a bit too bright, but considering the breathtaking quality of every other aspect of the transfer, this is easy to overlook. In short, Knowing makes for a reference-quality transfer from beginning to end and is one of the best Blu-ray has yet seen.


Knowing Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Knowing features a predictably wonderful DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. One of the most aggressive and deafening soundtracks available, Knowing features plenty of hefty bass and loud yet crystal-clear sound effects. From the very opening of the film and onward, listeners will become privy to the definition of the track and the seamless sense of space it creates. Whispering sounds flow out of the speakers from every corner of the soundstage with a chilling realism. Subtle yet rumbling bass accompanies the score over the opening credits that transition the film from 1959 to 2009, the clarity of the lows only a hint as to what is to come later in the soundtrack. Marco Beltrami's score glows, its delivery clean and precise in every instance. The track also creates lifelike atmospheres that place the listener in the midst of the action. Exterior shots of the MIT campus, for instance, feature rustling leaves and chatty pedestrians, both of which are heard in a 360-degree sound field. Likewise, during the William Dawes 50th anniversary ceremony, the slight echoing effect from the microphone is heard subtly around the soundstage. Listeners will hear -- and feel -- a subway car moving from the back channels through the middle of the listening area as it speeds to the front. Fortunately, the track's impressive array of back-channel audio never sounds gimmicky but rather fits naturally into the experience. Where the track truly shines, however, is in the recreation of the many sounds of violent destruction that populate the film. The crash of an airliner or the sound of a crackling, raging fire engulfing any object in its path deliver intense, deep, and punishing bass and impressively loud-at-reference-volume sound effects that remain clear and accurate, not merely playing as a jumbled glob of sound meant to loosely recreate a sonic event. Alo delivering precise and clear dialogue reproduction, Knowing features a soundtrack to be experienced rather than heard. A track to be reckoned with now and into the future, Knowing represents one of, if not the, top soundtracks currently available on Blu-ray.
