Planet Ocean

 (2012)

Planet Ocean Blu-ray features mediocre video and solid audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Planet Ocean captures extraordinary images of our remarkable oceans – the source of all life on our planet. Filmed by directors Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot, along with an outstanding team of international underwater cinematographers in partnership with OMEGA and with the scientific support of Tara Expeditions. The film aims to explain some of the planet’s greatest natural mysteries, while reinforcing how essential it is that mankind learns to live in harmony with our oceans. Planet Ocean serves as a reminder of the bond between humans and nature, and the duty that exists to protect and respect our planet.

For more about Planet Ocean and the Planet Ocean Blu-ray release, see Planet Ocean Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Narrator: Josh Duhamel
Directors: Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Michael Pitiot

Planet Ocean Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Largely comprised of upconverted footage and riddled with all sorts of issues, Universal's 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation could use a cleanup all its own. Treacherous macroblocking, severe banding and everything from unsightly ringing to significant aliasing, shimmering, video noise and other anomalies swarm the image from beginning to end. Again, much of it is inherent to the source, or rather sources, as the film was clearly assembled from numerous cameras, all of varying quality and resolution. Color and contrast is all over the place, black levels are often muted, fine detail is almost non-existent, edges are typically disrupted by halos, and only a handful of shots and scenes keep the presentation afloat in such deadly DVD waters.


Planet Ocean Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't have a lot to work with, but it handles everything thrown its way with class. The dull roar of industry, machinery and chugging boats relies heavily on the LFE channel, and when Duhamel isn't speaking, it flexes its muscle. Prioritization is less than subtle, though, and the soundfield is all but muzzled whenever he begins to talk. Likewise, when the seas are given their run of the place, the rear speakers do a fine job spreading the waves and winds around the listener. Directionality is rather imprecise, and dynamics aren't always up to snuff, but both are presumably the result of the film's sound design. Nothing more. All told, Planet Ocean sounds much better than it looks.
