Rise of the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Rise of the Planet of the Apes swings onto Blu-ray with the kind of top-tier high definition presentation you expect from a big budget summer blockbuster. The dual-layer 50 GB disc features a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer—framed in the film's native 2:35:1 aspect ratio—that's simply gorgeous from start to finish. Considering all of the special effects wizardry undertaken by the WETA Workshop, you'd think Rise would've been shot digitally, but no—it was actually filmed on fine-grained 35mm stock, and that warm, natural filmic texture is still visible here, untouched by noise reduction or edge enhancement. The sense of clarity you get from the picture is wonderful. Human skin and clothing textures are refined, but perhaps more impressive are WETA's CGI creations, which show a tremendous amount of detail, down to the individual hairs on the apes' faces. I noticed a few shots that looked slightly soft, but I think most of these could probably be attributed to the digital compositing process. Color is richly saturated too, with glowing skin tones, deep forest greens, and a generally warm cast, all bolstered by dark blacks and punchy contrast. Finally, though there are plenty of spots where compression issues could've flared up—specifically, dark interior scenes, where you anticipate noise, and the rolling fog over the Golden Gate bridge, where banding might be likely—there are no artifact problems to report. This is a Grade-A transfer.


Rise of the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Likewise, I have nothing but good to say about the film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which is dynamically aggressive and consistently engaging. From the very first scene, where you hear frightened birds explode in unison from out of the jungle canopy, you get the feeling you're in for some powerful and carefully considered sound design. Though the mix is anchored up front, the rear channels stay active throughout, supporting the ongoing action with pinpoint directionality. Obviously, you'll be hearing a lot of ape sounds. Apes freaking out in their cages. Apes wreaking havoc in the laboratory. Apes swinging and screaming and bursting through plate glass windows. The ambience and effects are weighty and forceful, without ever feeling stagy or artificial. The climactic face-off on the Golden Gate Bridge sounds especially fantastic, with helicopter rotors thrumming through the surround channels, massive outward-rippling explosions, and bullets spraying in every direction. The atmosphere is complemented by Patrick Doyle's big and unapologetically assertive score, and if you listen closely you can even hear the oooo-aahhh-aahhh-eeee- eeee cadence of ape-speak in the string arrangements. In the midst of all this, dialogue remains clean, balanced, and easy to understand. The disc also includes an English Dolby Digital 5.1 descriptive audio track, French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 dubs, and optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
