Return to Nim's Island

 (2013)

Return to Nim's Island Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

When Jack and Nim learn that the Buccaneer Resort Company has plans to purchase Nim's Island, Jack heads to Brisbane to convince the powers that be that the island is worth preserving while Nim insists on staying behind to try another way to save the island - by proving that at least three endangered species live there.

For more about Return to Nim's Island and the Return to Nim's Island Blu-ray release, see Return to Nim's Island Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Return to Nim's Island Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Return to Nim's Island was shot digitally with the Arri Alexa (according to IMDb) or a Panavision Genesis (as suggested by the credits). Either way, the image on ARC Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray has obviously been taken from digital files color-corrected and edited in post-production, because the image has the smooth, clean and noise-free appearance of digital photography with no intervening analog stage. Cinematographer Judd Overton's lighting is designed to maximize the impression of a sun-drenched tropical paradise (and, I suspect, to minimize any teen-related complexion issues), and it also helps to blend the location footage with the sets constructed to simulate portions of the island. The image may occasionally strike some viewers as overbright, but the brightness never comes at the expense of detail, whether it is in the features of the actors or, more importantly, the detailed marking of the many lizards, reptiles and insects that inhabit the island, or the delicate shadings and textures of the sea lion Selkie's skin, or the feathers of the many exotic birds (some of which, admittedly, are animated). The relatively brief Brisbane scenes are slightly darker, and they make it clear that the contrast levels are properly set, as well as the black levels. The latter are also well displayed in Edmund's night escape from Booker's boat, where both the sky and the sea reveal shades of deep black.

Banding and other artifacts, including compression anomalies were nowhere to be seen. This is an impressive job from ARC.


Return to Nim's Island Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

From the opening frames, when Nim and Selkie are swimming underwater and the sounds of the sea and of Selkie's presence rumble all around, the Blu-ray's DTS-HD MA 5.1 establishes an effective sonic presence for Nim's environment. Above the surface, the island is represented by wind, trees, animal and insect noises and lapping waves when characters are near the shore. For the brief period that Edmund is on Booker's boat, the surrounding waves are the main accompaniment. The Brisbane cityscape is positively ordinary by comparison, especially since most of those scenes are indoors. Dialogue is always clear, and the score by Nerida Tyson-Chew (Anacondas: The Search for the Blood Orchid) strikes just the right amount of swashbuckling tone to call Alex Rover's spirit to mind.
