Restrepo

 (2010)

Restrepo Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Award-winning journalists Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger chronicle the deployment of a platoon of American soldiers at one of the most dangerous outposts in Afghanistan, capturing the day-to-day reality of modern warfare as never seen before. From June 2007 to July 2008, Hetherington and Junger embedded with the soldiers of Second Platoon, Battle Company in the remote Korengal Valley in eastern Afghanistan, as they fought to build and maintain a remote 15-man outpost named "Restrepo" after a platoon medic who was killed in action. The filmmakers avoid all outside commentary and political context in order to present us war as it is actually lived by soldiers, through their own eyes and in their own words - the backbreaking labor, the deadly firefights, the boredom, the camaraderie.

For more about Restrepo and the Restrepo Blu-ray release, see Restrepo Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Dan Kearney, Lamonta Caldwell, Kevin Rice, Misha C. Pemble-Belkin, Juan Restrepo

Restrepo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Don't expect feature film hi-def wonderment with Restrepo, which comes to Blu-ray via an MPEG-2 codec in 1080i and 1.78:1. This "experiential" documentary was filmed under very trying circumstances, not to state the obvious, and as such a lot of the Afghan footage is relatively soft, sometimes grainy (especially in darker scenes), and suffers from the vagaries of battle-shot sequences, including shaky camera work, moments of confused framing and brief out of focus elements. All of that said, a lot of Restrepo bristles with excellent detail, with well saturated color and good depth of field in the Korengal Valley footage. The interview segments obviously look the best here, with excellent fine detail, sometimes heartbreakingly so, as when you can clearly see suppressed tears welling up in one of the interview subject's eyes. All of this said, while Restrepo is certainly not as sharp and breathtakingly detailed as studio shot features, one of course shouldn't expect it to be, and on its own terms, Restrepo's Blu-ray presentation looks admirable.


Restrepo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Some audiophiles will probably lament the lack of any lossless audio options on Restrepo, but both of the Dolby Digital tracks perform quite well within their lossy confines. The 5.1 track has some frighteningly immersive moments, with really devastating LFE. In fact the first IED attack, shot from within a Hummer, is almost certain to jar your senses and leave you suitably shaken. The firefights are viscerally immersive, with mortar rounds and automatic gunfire zinging to and fro from every direction. Some of the battle dialogue is buried in the ambient battle sounds, but that only adds to the reality of Restrepo. The interview segments sound crisp and clear with excellent fidelity.
