Planet 51

 (2009)

Planet 51 Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

American astronaut Captain Charles "Chuck" Baker, lands on Planet 51 thinking he's the first person to step foot on it. To his surprise, he finds that this planet is inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a white picket fence world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent 1950s America, and whose only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders--like Chuck! With the help of his robot companion "Rover" and his new friend Lem, Chuck must navigate his way through the dazzling, but bewildering, landscape of Planet 51 in order to escape becoming a permanent part of the Planet 51 Alien Invaders Space Museum.

For more about Planet 51 and the Planet 51 Blu-ray release, see Planet 51 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Planet 51 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Planet 51 comes in peace via this dazzling 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer from Sony. The picture quality astounds throughout, whether through a strong sense of depth and dimension that's noticeable in most every sequence, exceptional details, or strong colors. While Planet 51 does, at times, want for more color due in part to some darkened interior scenes or several that take place at dusk, the picture's brighter moments positively sparkle with a wonderful array of finely-tuned shades, whether the green-skinned aliens or the red, white, and blue of an American flag that sparkles as brightly as ever. Still, it's the image's exceptionally-rendered details that make this one a real winner. While the aliens themselves are almost painfully bland -- with clumpy "hair" and incredibly smooth skin -- there's no questioning the intricate details and texturing of most every other object seen in the movie, whether in the foreground or even in distant backgrounds. Indeed, fine lines on the wooden desks inside the alien classroom; the individual blades of grasses seen in appropriately tight shots of lawns; the stitching on Chuck's uniform; or even the slight lines and ridges seen on the aliens' lips, which proves the only real texturing found on their bodies, all feature what is nothing short of breathtaking resolution and practically infinite detailing down to the smallest of intricacies. Viewers will even note several dust particles floating about in one scene inside the comic book store in chapter nine. A touch of banding is evident in a few scenes, but it's completely gobbled up by the otherwise pristine visuals. This one is an absolute stunner that will leave jaws agape from beginning to end.


Planet 51 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sony's Blu-ray release of Planet 51 arrives with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack that's of a high quality but not on par with the cream of the crop of high definition presentations. It delivers an aggressive posture and plenty of surround information, but rarely is it wholly convincing. It never quite attains the same level of heft or absolute seamless clarity as the most refined of listens, but it's not sorely lacking in any of these areas, either. The track spews some pronounced bass as the American spacecraft lands and, later, takes off. The picture's consistently-catchy soundtrack is nicely played with only some minor but nevertheless noticeable shortcomings in clarity and definition. The track does enjoy a prominent surround structure; alien gunfire zips through the listening area on several occasions and various objects maneuver from side-to-side with a fair amount of precision. However, environmental ambience never fully realized. Dialogue is mostly strong and sharp, but is occasionally lost underneath some musical cues or sound effects. The track certainly isn't bad, but for a brand-new animated movie with plenty to offer from an aural perspective, it simply comes up just a bit short when compared to some of the more seamless, complete, and immersive presentations out there.
