Mimic

 (1997)

Mimic Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Three years ago, two young scientists teamed up to save New York City from an roach-borne epidemic that was killing thousands of children. Their miracle of genetic engineering was the Judas Breed, an insect whose enzimes proved deadly to the disease-carrying roaches. However, their creation has come back to haunt them, altering the balance of nature and tipping the scales in favor of the insects. The thing created in the lab has changed, and now, out there in the city it has begun to mimic the most dangerous predator of all---humans.

For more about Mimic and the Mimic Blu-ray release, see Mimic Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Mira Sorvino, Jeremy Northam, Josh Brolin, Giancarlo Giannini, Charles S. Dutton, Alexander Goodwin

Mimic Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Mimic scurries onto Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. This is a film which is obviously intended to be very, very dark, and so finding fault with this Blu-ray's persistent crush seems gratuitous. This is a film which extracts a lot of its terror from not being to totally see what's going on. Things that make clicking noises in the dark are twice as scary when you can't quite make them out, and del Toro repeatedly utilizes shadows, dim lighting, and obstacles in the frame to keep the viewer guessing what's going on. Putting aside crush issues, though, this transfer is plagued by omnipresent noise courtesy of a fairly grainy transfer that is only emphasized by all the dimly lit scenes. Several of the darkest sequences are overrun by noise which only seems to add yet another pesky bug that Sorvino and Northam need to take care of. On the plus side, the better lit sequences offer really nicely saturated color and very good if not superb fine detail. Close-ups in well lit scenes fare best, as might be expected. Also looking great is del Toro's deliberately filtered color scheme, which casts a lot of the underground footage in bizarre blues and purples.


Mimic Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Mimic boasts one of the most aggressively robust sound designs in recent Blu-ray memory, and it's presented with oomph galore courtesy of a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track. What repeatedly struck me during the film is how del Toro and his sound team don't go for the obvious scare tactics like jump cuts with ominous accompanying bursts of LFE. In fact, the bugs themselves make a slobbering clicking sound which is at least as frightening as any bombastic effect might have been. What really sets this sound mix apart, though, is its incredible immersion, especially in the subterranean sequences (which are the bulk of the film), where panning effects posit discrete effects careening through the soundfield, and LFE courtesy of such moments as subway trains roaring by is more than abundant. Dialogue is crisp and clear and the overall mix is very well balanced. But what a great thing to be able to say that a film like this doesn't just go for the literal cheap shots—this is a soundtrack full of nuance and surprising dynamic range, and it sounds incredible on this Blu-ray.
