Promised Land

 (2012)

Promised Land Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Corporate salesman Steve Butler arrives in a rural town with his sales partner, Sue Thomason. With the town having been hit hard by the economic decline of recent years, the two outsiders see the local citizens as likely to accept their company's offer, for drilling rights to their properties, as much-needed relief. What seems like an easy job for the duo becomes complicated by the objection of a respected schoolteacher with support from a grassroots campaign led by another man who counters Steve both personally and professionally.

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

Promised Land Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Promised Land's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer won't strike many as a winner, at least not at first glance. But look closer and you'll find a proficient, faithful and, above all, film-like presentation that stays true to Van Sant and cinematographer Linus Sandgren's smalltown intentions, whatever the cost. Colors are fittingly bleak and washed out, the result of a tough-times palette that complements the film's tone and tenor. Black levels are a bit muted at times -- generally at night, or when Steve visits the local bar -- but satisfying on the whole, largely free of troubling crush and alienating delineation. Contrast follows suit, and Sandgren's use of natural lighting completes the picture perfectly. Surprisingly, detail is quite revealing, particularly in regards to closeups. Artistic softness is rampant but not unwelcome, as the image boasts plenty of crisp, clean edges, refined textures and well-preserved grain. Artifacting, banding and the like are nowhere to be found either, and the only issue worth mentioning is the inherent, source-born noise that crops up when the lights go low. All in all, it's an excellent video presentation. Not exactly stunning, but I'd wager the film couldn't look much better than it does here.


Promised Land Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The word "authentic" comes to mind when listening to Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. The film's documentary-like sound design is decidedly frank and forward, without any grand flourishes or tricks of the sonic trade. What the subsequent soundfield lacks in terms of power and depth, though, it more than makes up for in personality and presence. Dialogue is clean and clear on the whole, LFE output is restrained but reliable, and the rear speakers are bristling with ambient effects, even though the soundscape tends to be rather front-heavy by design. Danny Elfman's score presides over it all with respect and welcome fullness, and the entire experience suits the film nicely. Will it blow anyone away? Hardly. It does justice to Promised Land's original sound design, though. No one should expect anything more.
