Outpost: Black Sun

 (2012)

Outpost: Black Sun Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A NATO task force is deployed to Eastern Europe, where a sinister enemy is mercilessly killing everything in its path. Only Lena, an investigator on the trail of a Nazi war criminal, and Wallace, a physicist who has been chasing Nazi secrets for years, understand that the enemy is the result of an experiment begun during the Nazi era to create "super soldiers". Now, the Thousand Year Reich has emerged from a hidden bunker and restarted the campaign to conquer the world.

For more about Outpost: Black Sun and the Outpost: Black Sun Blu-ray release, see Outpost: Black Sun Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Outpost: Black Sun Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Outpost: Black Sun was shot digitally. IMDb says that the camera was the Arri Alexa, but the equipment is less important than the fact of digital capture, which is plain from the image on Xlrator Media's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray. Although it is possible to capture and manipulate digital images into something that is almost indistinguishable from film (as, e.g., David Fincher and Jeff Cronenweth have demonstrated), most digital productions opt for a familiarly desaturated look, because, among other things, it helps disguise limits in the production budget. O:BS was shot by Darran Tiernan, who, as a veteran of British TV, is familiar both with digital cinema and tight budgets.

The Blu-ray's image is clean, free of noise and sharp, except where obscurity is deliberate, either for storytelling purposes or to conceal something that would break an illusion. Colors are generally dull and washed out, but in certain key scenes (e.g., the critical finale involving the "core" of the reanimation machine, or scenes involving Klausener) specific colors have been brought out in post-production for deliberate effect, primarily icy blue and blood red. Blacks are solid without crushing, and contrast is never overblown. As this is a digital effort from acquisition to authoring, the usual analog concerns of filtering and sharpening do not apply. Compression artifacts were not an issue.


Outpost: Black Sun Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack for O:BS provides some entertaining and impressive support for the visuals. Firefights, some of them featuring bright tracer bullets, zing through the surrounds. Deep and tight bass extension accompany the activity of not only the mysterious Nazi machine, but also the EMP devices with which the soldiers have equipped themselves as a countermeasure. When one of these is activated, it commandeers the soundtrack for a brief period; anyone without a subwoofer may want to adjust their settings. A lengthy scene involving the machine itself causes a cacophony of mechanical, steam and electrical sounds all around, and another one that's hard to describe except that there's lots of lightning bolts is equally impressive.

The reanimated Nazi troops make a variety of grunts, groans, shrieks and guttural sounds that are not meant to be understood but set an appropriate mood. Dialogue between the two principal characters, Lena and Wallace, is always intelligible, even though both are played by British actors doing American accents (Lena's is more credible than Wallace's). Most of the other cast speak with British accents and are perfectly intelligible, with the exception of the soldiers, many of whom have strong Scots accents that may challenge the ear of American viewers. Don't hesitate to switch on the subtitles.
