Recoil Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Recoil is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Nasser Group North and Vivendi Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is yet another RED shot film that has the shiny smooth surface quality so endemic to digitally shot movies. The nice thing is this seems to have undergone very little tweaking at the DI stage, and so filtering is kept to a minimum and colors for the most part are well saturated and accurate. There are some minor compression artifacts on display, including some shimmer in the opening forest sequences and a couple of moments of instability leading to very minor aliasing at various moments. But generally this high definition presentation sports very nice clarity and sharpness, especially in close-ups, which reveal some very nice fine detail.


Recoil Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Recoil's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is surprisingly anemic for a supposed action film like this. Surround activity is pretty limited, though there are some occasional nice panning effects when Austin roars down the road in his souped up 1968 Plymouth. Even the two big explosions that dot the film don't offer overwhelming LFE or fantastic immersion. There's nothing downright horrible here, and in fact fidelity and dynamic range are both excellent, but action film aficionados are going to wonder where the "oomph" in this audio mix is. Dialogue is cleanly and clearly presented, but uniformly anchored front and center, as are almost all of the ambient environmental effects.
