Rescue 3D

 (2011)

Rescue 3D Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Our story takes place in the U.S. and Canada, countries whose military are frequently called upon to support humanitarian crises. In the U.S., the USAF maintains and operates a large fleet of unusually equipped cargo aircraft, the C-17, originally designed to move troops and huge military assets to remote parts of the battlefield in support of combat troops.

For more about Rescue 3D and the Rescue 3D Blu-ray release, see Rescue 3D Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Rescue 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Rescue 3D is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Image Entertainment with both MVC (3D) and AVC (2D) encoded 1080p transfers in 1.78:1. As is typically the case with these large format IMAX features, the Blu-ray offers stupendously sharp and clear imagery, with really stellar depth of field in the many, many exterior shots that feature wide vistas. Colors are extremely well saturated and accurate looking, and even regular bugaboos like heavy foliage or water whipped into a frenzy by helicopter rotors resolve effortlessly without any stability issues whatsoever. Close-ups provide extremely crystalline fine detail.

The 3D imagery is, as should be expected, similarly amazing, to the point that it may actually bother some more sensitive eyes (I am one of those people who was often unable to deal with the older 3D technology, which frequently gave me massive headaches, and even the "new, improved" 3D sometimes plays havoc with my depth perception and vision). I personally have some problems when objects are thrust directly out toward the viewer (see screenshot 6, where the tether holding the basket seems to jump straight out from the screen in the 3D version), and some of those elements actually made my eyes water they're so vivid. Depth of field is routinely excellent throughout this presentation, even in less "showy" moments. For example, a scene set inside the cockpit clearly gives us delineated planes of depth, including in one instance the cockpit windshield obviously well in front of the people inside the cockpit. My setup and display encountered no crosstalk issues whatsoever, but I am still subtracting half a point due to the extremely aggressive placement of some of these "foreground" objects which some viewers may have issues with.


Rescue 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Rescue 3D features incredibly aggressive and immersive lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes in English, French and Spanish. From the first moment, when we hear a helicopter rotor clearly panning through the soundfield, this mix offers sterling fidelity and near constant use of the surround channels. Later there's some truly awesome LFE courtesy of the "big guns" aboard the destroyer that plays a central role in the documentary. There are some low rumbling foley effects added to the first scenes of Haiti which may remind some older viewers of that long ago sonic gimmick Sensurround. The only niggling complaint with this mix is that sometimes the mix tends to just slightly bury the onscreen dialogue beneath the onslaught of sound effects and (more occasionally) score, but that's a very minor complaint given the general robustness of this excellently rendered audio.
