Lies & Illusions

 (2009)

Lies & Illusions Blu-ray features poor video and audio, but overall it's a disappointing Blu-ray release

Best-selling author Wes Wilson has it all. But when menacing smuggler Isaac coolly insists that he take a chauffeured backseat ride, Wilson's charmed life explodes into a world of violence, espionage and stolen diamonds. As lies and illusions give way to a harsh reality, Wilson learns shocking truths about two women in his life.

For more about Lies & Illusions and the Lies & Illusions Blu-ray release, see Lies & Illusions Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 1.5 out of 5.

Starring: Christa Campbell (I), Sarah Ann Schultz, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Christian Slater
Director: Tibor Takács (I)

Lies & Illusions Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Lies & Illusions debuts on Blu-ray with an ugly 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. The transfer's most noted aspect is its pasty and lifeless flesh tones. Not only do faces have absolutely no definition or detail, but they vary drastically in shade from one shot to the next. Fine detail is virtually non-existent elsewhere, too; while a few shots exhibit a borderline average level of texture and detail -- for instance a brick building façade -- this is, overall, one of the least visually-appealing transfers on the market. Interior shots feature poor lighting which tends to flatten out the image even further, and the same may be said of the many outdoor scenes that are often defined by gray, overcast skies. Lies & Illusions features a limited color palette that's heavy on blacks, whites, and shades of gray. When colors do pop up -- for instance the pink bathrobe Wes wears -- looks overblown and completely unnatural. Also featuring variable and generally unimpressive black levels, Lies & Illusions' 1080p transfer scrapes the bottom of the picture quality barrel.


Lies & Illusions Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Though Lies & Illusions boasts a PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack, one wouldn't realize it without seeing it displayed on the receiver. The opening sequence at the party delivers a decent front-heavy atmosphere; music plays with ease and clarity and with a solid foundation in the percussion section. A few scattered sound effects -- clanking silverware and partygoer chatter -- find their way into the mix but only across the front. Through the rest of the movie, this track provides only the absolute basics and virtually no back-channel presence. Rain falls only across the front half of the soundstage in one scene, completely failing to immerse the listener in the moment. Gunshots sound like cap guns, and an explosion at the end is the only thing that comes even remotely close to providing a halfway decent sonic experience. Dialogue reproduction isn't as crisp and accurate as that found in most other soundtracks, but there's never any problem in understanding what the characters are saying, if anyone cares.
