Road to Perdition Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

It's almost criminal to give Road to Perdition's fantastic and wonderfully faithful 1080p transfer less than a perfect score, but wobbly opening title credits and some random pops and speckles over the image prove just enough to knock the total down a half-notch. Don't let those nitpicks detract from just how gorgeous Paramount's high definition presentation truly is, though. Road to Perdition isn't one of those eye-popping, three-dimensional, brightly-colored, and impeccably-detailed Pixar-type transfers. Quite the contrary, Conrad Hall's photography is often dark and slightly soft, and it's captured in all its film-like glory here. Films like Road to Perdition truly define the Blu-ray experience. Here's a transfer that's so faithful and so beautifully filmic that it's easy to get lost in the nuances of the image. Grain is handsomely retained over the screen, but that's not the only area whereby this transfer does its part to transform a home theater into a well-cared-for cinema. Fine detail is exceptional, even through the many shadows and softer elements found throughout the picture. Brighter scenes fare best -- the smallest details seen on character faces during the picture's climax is nothing short of stunning -- but even black trenchcoats and hats seen in the picture's more dark and unforgiving scenes prove exceptionally detailed. Though the picture is absent an aggressive color scheme, the Blu-ray handles Hall's and Mendes' palette brilliantly; shadow detail remains excellent, and blacks are pure and absorbing to just the right level. As with other stunningly film-like Blu-ray transfers, the only real shortcoming here lies not with the quality of the image, but instead the fact that the movie and its Blu-ray presentation demand a viewing on the largest of surfaces. For lovers of fine filmmaking and Blu-ray discs that are reflective of the filmmakers' original intent, Road to Perdition is among the finest available in both regards.


Road to Perdition Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Road to Perdition's Blu-ray release features a reference-quality DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Paramount's latest offering is consistently smooth and seamless in presentation. Thomas Newman's (Revolutionary Road) Oscar-nominated score enjoys a warmth and richness that blends seamlessly with the visuals and seems to float into the soundstage with no effort and with a realism that's hard to top. The track features exceptionally-realized atmospherics, too. Whether more gentle elements such as gusty winds and rolling waves or more aggressive elements like the rumbling of an elevated train or driving rain, this DTS track delivers a potent but altogether natural and, just as importantly, seamless environmental support structure. The track's bread-and-butter, though, comes from its devastatingly powerful and sonically frightening gunfire. Whether the rat-a-tat of Michael's Thompson machine gun, the boom of Maguire's Winchester shotgun, or the reports of Michael's 1911 .45 pistol, the track delivers the realism of a firing range and with it the sense of danger and devastation wrought by each weapon. Supported by problem-free dialogue reproduction, Road to Perdition delivers one of the year's finest soundtracks to date.
