Sahara Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 2:35:1 MPEG encoded 1080p video looks pretty good most of the time, but suffers from a bit of inconsistency. The picture quality is bright, vibrant, and definitely gives the feel of being in the desert. The source appears pristine, clean of pops, scratches, and other print defects. It has a very smooth digital video look rather than a film look. Colors are very well rendered, bright, punchy, a lot of rich hues, and are completely void of chroma noise or bleeding. In spite of the fact that a majority of the action takes place in daylight, shadow detail in night scenes was quite good. Fine details are excellently rendered, often giving the picture a three dimensional look.

If I have any issues with the picture quality, it would be persistent softness. It looks as if a thin veil is covering the picture at times. Also grain occasionally shows up, but not enough to be a complete distraction. This is not the best high definition video I have seen, but it is far from the worst.



Sahara Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The audio comes in two flavors, Dolby Digital 5.1 at 640kbps, and a Dts track at 754kbps. I found little difference between the two. The sound is generally very good, with excellent use of the split surrounds during action sequences. Imaging is somewhat diffused, the front soundstage rest between my front left/right speakers without any extension beyond. The depth of the sound staging is somewhat shallow and flat, rarely extending behind the front panel of my speakers. Dynamic range is wide and unrestrained; pans were seamless whether front to back or side to side. Sound effects are cleanly rendered and often very powerful and aggressive in all channels. The LFE carries the lion share of the bass information, and it is very tight, deep, and really gives some heft to the overall mix. The film score, written by Clint Mansell is well recorded, but lacks in soundstage depth, and imaging is somewhat diffused and flat. Instrument timbre is finely captured, and sounds very natural. Dialog is always clear and never buried, but not always well integrated within the scene. This is a nice mix, serves the story well, but not the best I have heard from the Bluray format
