Mystic River

 (2003)

Mystic River Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Three friends who grew up in working-class Boston drift apart after a terrible tragedy. Years later, brutal events reconnect them. Jimmy’s 19-year-old daughter is coldly murdered. Dave is a suspect. And Sean, now a cop, scrambles to solve the crime before volatile Jimmy takes the law into his own hands. Working from Brian Helgeland’s adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel, director Clint Eastwood shapes a masterful, brooding thriller built on family, friends and innocence lost.

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

Starring: Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon, Laurence Fishburne, Marcia Gay Harden, Laura Linney

Mystic River Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Mystic River's 1080p/VC-1 transfer is a tricky one to evaluate. Eastwood and cinematographer Tom Stern's muted palette and filmic photography were never intended to appeal to high-def juicers, nor do the filmmakers shy away from soft focus and shallow depth of field. Even so, Warner's Blu-ray presentation represents a notable upgrade from its DVD counterpart. Colors are more stable, skintones are more consistent and lifelike, blacks are deeper and more thoroughly resolved, detail is more revealing, and the image is much cleaner. Artifacting, aliasing, crush, and source noise are all but gone, and edge enhancement, though still apparent throughout, is less intrusive. However, the film's graininess has been left by the wayside; the soupy remnants of a proper grainfield, errant contrast wavering, and lesser textures are now all that reside in its place. While several closeups are quite impressive, too many scenes suffer from mild smearing and a slight reduction in clarity. Evidence of such appears as early as Dave's abduction, as regularly as Sean and his partner question a suspect or witness, and as late as Jimmy's last tragic revelation. DNR has clearly been employed, but it's unclear where Stern's photography ends and Warner's interference begins. All things considered, Mystic River looks pretty good -- enough so that anyone looking to finally toss out their old DVD will be pleased -- but it lacks the integrity and faithfulness of the studio's best catalog transfers.


Mystic River Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Mystic River is one of the first catalog titles Warner is releasing with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and I'm happy to report it's an exceedingly subtle, deceptively strong offering. Built on the back of Eastwood's somber score, a haunting collection of quiet piano elegies and heart-wrenching orchestral lamentations, it swoons and relents, permeating the whole of the soundfield to create an unexpectedly immersive experience. Judicious LFE support bolsters every crescendo (not to mention the film's brief bursts of violence) and the rear speakers effectively embrace Lennie Niehaus' swelling strings whenever given the opportunity. Decisive prioritization keeps dialogue nestled just above the music and directional effects cleanly distributed amongst its melodies. Jimmy's desperate wails and hushed admissions dominate the center channel, Dave's quivering cries are clean and intelligible, and Sean's questions come in satisfying stride. Granted, a few lines get buried beneath the surging score, and normalization isn't as polished as I would prefer, but Mystic River has never sounded better. Those who enjoy Eastwood's classy execution will appreciate the track's intricacies.
