North Face Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

North Face is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Music Box Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is often a spectacularly sharp and well detailed high definition presentation, especially with regard to both close-ups, where fine detail is commendable, to the many lovely (and, later, terrifying) location shots which provide some amazing depth of field. Colors are very robust and well saturated, and even when the film tends to drown in slate grays and whites as the weather turns foul in the late going, detail is never seriously compromised. There are no real stability issues here, either, even in the "busy" scenes with lots of snowfall or mist filling the frame. A couple of the green screened mattes looked just slightly artificial to my eyes, but otherwise this is a splendid presentation that has a lot of "wow" factor.


North Face Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

North Face's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is filled to the brim with immersive effects, though they tend to more fully exploit the side channels than the rear most of the time. Things start out relatively calmly, with little effects like a dog barking in what sounds like a far off left region of the soundfield, but as the film gets more and more into the climbing sequences, things perk up dramatically, with lots of well done moments that include everything from whipping winds and other foul weather to the distinctive "clink" of pitons being hammered into sheer rock faces. Dialogue and score are both presented very cleanly, always with excellent fidelity and with some appealing dynamic range.
