Monsters Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Given how the film was shot—entirely by director Gareth Edwards, handheld, with little to no supplementary lighting—Monsters looks quite strong on Blu-ray. The high definition video footage translates into a 1080p/AVC-encoded image that's lush and clear and—without going overboard— really does capture the atmosphere of traveling alone through an unknown country. Because all of the footage is handheld, focus slips from where it's supposed to be occasionally, but what is in focus is always more than adequately sharp, with plenty of detail visible in the actors' faces, the costumes, and the jungle foliage. Whoever did the color grading—and I wouldn't be surprised if it was Edwards—also did a fine job, as the picture has palpable warmth and tight contrast. The one downside to shooting with no additional lights, however, is that some of the nighttime scenes are extremely noisy. That said, viewers should be aware that this really couldn't be avoided, and besides, it never gets to the point of outright distraction. Likewise, there are no real encode-related issues to draw your attention away from what's going on in the story. I was quite impressed with the image as a whole. For better or worse, but mostly better, it's certainly true to source.


Monsters Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The film's DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track is even better. As you probably gathered from my review, this isn't a film loaded with non-stop explosive action. There are definitely a few isolated moments, and these sound great, with bullets ripping through the soundfield, missiles arcing past, and helicopters beating between channels. Where this track really excels, however, is in its constant use of immersive, puts-you-right-there-in-the- middle-of-the-scene ambience. You'll be surrounded by chatter in the hospital, the hustle and bustle of a train station terminal, and the festive atmosphere of a Day of the Dead celebration. Out in the infected zone, birds sing, insects hum, cows moo, crazy-ass monkeys howl, and of course, there are the ominous, elephantine trilling noises that the alien creatures make off in the distance. It all sounds wonderful—crisp and real and dynamic. All of this is complemented by a moody ambient electronica score by Jon Hopkins that surges and sweeps, underscoring the general this-is-dangerous-for-us- to-be-traveling-here vibe. The dialogue occasionally sounds a hair low in the mix, but never to the point of unintelligibility. For those that need or want them, English SDH and Spanish subtitles are available in easy-to-read white lettering.
