Red Planet

 (2000)

Red Planet Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

In the mid-21st century, the nations of a dying Earth look starward for a solution and set out to colonize Mars. But something no one could have expected awaits. Houston, we have big trouble. Val Kilmer, Carrie-Anne Moss and Tom Sizemore star in this taut adventure about humankindís first mission to the mysterious Red Planet. Also on the mission is the multifunctional robo-assistant AMEE. In one mode, she's a as loyal as a puppy. But a malfunction has locked her into a far different mode: a killing machine bent on destroying the crew. Yet thatís not the end of the expeditionís perils. Because Mars may be barren, but itís not uninhabited.

For more about Red Planet and the Red Planet Blu-ray release, see Red Planet Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Director: Anthony Hoffman
Writers: Jonathan Lemkin, Chuck Pfarrer
Starring: Val Kilmer, Carrie-Anne Moss, Tom Sizemore, Benjamin Bratt (I), Simon Baker, Terence Stamp

Red Planet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Red Planet makes its Blu-ray debut with an excellent 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that rockets past its DVD counterpart. The steely gray hull and blue-lit passageways of the Mars-1, the sun-blasted yellows and dusty oranges of the planet, and the bottomless blacks of Hoffman's space-scape have never looked better, fleshtones are convincing and consistent (barring a flushed face or two) and contrast and clarity aren't far behind. (Shots involving visual effects aren't as striking as most other scenes, but most of the presentation's shortcomings are tied to the film's source.) Detail is quite impressive as well, with naturally resolved fine textures, remarkable closeups, and crisp, clean object definition. As to the encode itself, there isn't much to criticize. Some minor artifacting flutters to the surface in a handful of scenes (the worst of which disrupts the sky behind Kilmer and Sizemore around the 1:08:00 mark), crush creeps into a few shots, and slight, almost negligible ringing is apparent throughout. But videophiles won't have to contend with much else. I didn't catch sight of any significant macroblocking, banding, aliasing or smearing, and inherent inconsistencies in the now eleven-year-old image are the only things that will give most viewers pause.


Red Planet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track makes the most of Hoffman's excursion to Mars, from the otherworldly howl of a planetary storm to the groaning steel of a shuttering ship, the clank sizzt clank sizzt of a relentless robot, and the roar of a surging fireball. Explosions and other low-end elements are rugged and robust, and the ever-present, mechanical hum of the Mars-1 settles deep within the soundscape. LFE output isn't entirely reliable -- some scenes seem to favor volume over prowess -- but the original sound design seems to be the culprit more than anything. Thankfully, rear speaker activity is engaging (in spite of some stocky directional effects), acoustics are believable, and ambience is both effective and enveloping. Dialogue is also intelligible, well-prioritized and neatly nestled in the mix, and voices remain grounded, regardless of how chaotic Gallagher and Burchenal's Mars-mission becomes. I wouldn't go so far as to call the experience extraordinary, but as eleven-year-old sci-fi thrillers go, it all sounds quite good.
