Poseidon

 (2006)

Poseidon Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

It's New Year's Eve on the Poseidon. Partying voyagers lift glasses to toast the future. The future comes in a rush: a 150-foot rogue wave flips the cruise ship over... and a desperate struggle to survive begins.

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

Starring: Kurt Russell, Josh Lucas, Richard Dreyfuss, Mike Vogel, Emmy Rossum, Jacinda Barrett
Director: Wolfgang Petersen (I)

Poseidon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Poseidon arrives on Blu-ray with a generally very strong VC-1 encoded 1080p image with a 2:41:1 aspect ratio. The good news is there is abundant detail here, despite some omnipresent softness, and a very commendable lack of banding in the neatly variegated underwater shots, where luminous streaks of light cut through the murkiness. The subtly gradated colors in these scenes are beautiful. Unfortunately, the superior resolution of the Blu-ray also shows the patently fake CGI of the Poseidon on several occasions, ironically mostly when the ship is still upright and floating. The most impressive aspect of this transfer is the nicely varied color palette, which offers some abrupt changes, all of them well defined with no blooming, as we go from underwater haziness filled with blues and greens to explosive bursts of orange and red as various combustibles ignite. Grain is quite natural looking and while Kurt Russell may have had a bit of Botox, there doesn't seem to be any egregious DNR in this effort. There is some very slight crushing of blacks in some of the interior scenes, where, for example, the inky colored hair of Maestro temporarily disappears into the shadows.


Poseidon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The best thing about this Blu-ray is undoubtedly the extremely robust and propulsive DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix. This soundtrack has all of the fun the film should have exhibited. Filled with zooming pan effects and some wonderfully immersive watery sounds, this is a great example of a surround track actually enveloping the listener and making him a part of the film. From the first neat effect, when the muted sounds of underwater crystallize into above water clarity, this track is a model of fidelity and excellent range. Some of the explosions are wonderfully directional, with metal shards flying overhead and around the listener, and bursts of flame seeming to take the air out of the room as they fly from left to right and back and forth. Dialogue is clear for the most part, though truth be told I did have to turn on the optional subtitles once or twice to get a line or two that was buried beneath various sound effects. LFE gives a thundering workout to the subwoofer throughout this film once the boat goes under, as we ping pong between eruptions of water and explosions inside the ship.
