Playing God Blu-ray offers solid video and poor audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Dr. Eugene Sands, an ex-surgeon lured into a dark underworld by a hip -but lethal- mob caught in a web of murder and mayhem...and growing far too close to the mobster's seductive mistress.

For more about Playing God and the Playing God Blu-ray release, see Playing God Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Director: Andy Wilson (IV)
Starring: David Duchovny, Timothy Hutton, Angelina Jolie, Michael Massee, Peter Stormare, Gary Dourdan

Playing God Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Photographed by Anthony Richmond (Legally Blonde ) in a stylized, slightly over-exposed style that exaggerates the Southern California sun, Playing God looks far superior on Mill Creek's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray than it did in its 1998 DVD appearance. The source material is in decent shape with very little print damage (far superior to the accompanying Color of Night), and sharpness and detail are superior throughout. Colors in many scenes appear to be somewhat bleached out by contrast, but in others (e.g., the Russian nightclub) they are fully saturated, which indicates that the bleaching is by design and consistent with DP Richmond's visual concept for the film.

The average bitrate of 19.00 Mbps is somewhat low for a film that has a number of scenes of rapid action, including shootouts and an extended car chase near the end, but these are counterbalanced by lengthy dialogue scenes with little or no movement. As a result, compression artifacts are minor to non-existent.


Playing God Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Playing God was released to theaters with a 5.1 soundtrack, and the DVD released by Disney's Buena Vista Home Video in 1998 was encoded with Dolby Digital 5.1. However, in a move more commonly seen from Echo Bridge, Mill Creek has provided only a 2.0 track encoded as DTS-HD MA 2.0. The track gets the job done, providing clear dialogue and reproducing the lively score by prolific British composer Richard Hartley, who has composed for numerous U.K. TV series and films, though he will probably be best remembered for orchestrating The Rocky Horror Picture Show. But Playing God is, at least in part, a gangster film, and it involves several shootouts, one car chase and several settings with distinctive sonic environments. The omission of its original multi-channel soundmix is inexcusable, and I am docking its score accordingly.
