Ransom Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) presentation retains only a moderate amount of grain structure, emphasizing a mildly filtered look that encourages some faint ghosting during particularly vigorous scenes of movement. Fine detail ranges from scene to scene, mostly making a crisp impression, with softness pulling textures out of fabrics, while a few wider shots lack facial feel, smoothed out some. Colors fare better, finding the particulars of NYC streets bringing out a lively palette, while the splattering of red blood makes a vivid impression, deepening the violence of the third act. Skintones feel natural with the occasional redness. Edge delineation loses impact with low-lit locations, finding blacks a tad solid. Daylight helps the image considerably, providing a full view of screen elements, supplying HD heft. Print looks nice, without any noticeable damage.


Ransom Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix carries itself comfortably, balancing the needs of the drama with the action elements that creep into the picture. Hushed acts of intimacy are easily understood and crisp, with a strong frontal position locking down emotional moments with comfortable clarity. Scenes with multiple characters fighting for verbal dominance are satisfactorily separated, nicely supported by the score, which carries itself powerfully without stepping on dialogue exchanges, offering a compelling circular sweep. Directional activity is limited but effective, selling helicopter and automobile movement, while the surrounds sustain crowd depth and Sean's sensorial disorientation. Low-end is rarely explored in detail. It's certainly not a dynamic track, yet it communicates suspense beats acceptably, supporting the visuals well.
