Salvage

 (2006)

Salvage Blu-ray features bad video and mediocre audio in this poor Blu-ray release

Claire Parker, a small-town Midwestern girl, leaves her night job at the convenience store and awaits a ride home from her boyfriend Jimmy. When a stranger shows up in Jimmy's truck, claiming to be his friend, she senses danger, but what's the worst that could happen? A descent into a nightmare world follows.

For more about Salvage and the Salvage Blu-ray release, see Salvage Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Salvage Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.5 of 5

Presented in 1080i utilizing the MPEG-2 codec (at an average bitrate of 25Mbps), Salvage looks fairly dismal on Blu-ray. The primary disappointment is a lack of fine object detail, with the majority of the film appearing marginally better than standard definition. To make matters worse, there are several instances of aliasing (the leaves blowing on the ground at 53:25 are a good example), some noticeable line shimmering (look at the silver lining on the side of the pickup around the 58:28 mark), and I detected the presence of some minor edge enhancement. Motion blurring also becomes a problem in several scenes, but that could be the result of framerate issues in the source material and not a direct deficiency of the transfer. Regarding the color spectrum, I'd assume the transfer is an accurate representation of the source material, which maintains a dreary feel, as if every scene were shot on an overcast day. It suits the dark, oppressive tone of the film, but doesn't add any visual pop to the transfer. Lastly, black levels and contrast are decent considering the limitations of the low budget source material, but won't stack up very well next to a typical Blu-ray release of a Hollywood production (which pretty well summarizes the entire video experience).


Salvage Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

We're given two audio options on the disc, which don't sound significantly different from one another. I chose to listen primarily to the Linear PCM 2.0 track, which is surprisingly good for a 2-channel experience. On the positive side, I never caught myself straining to hear the dialogue, and it was well-balanced with the musical numbers that played in the background. The sound effects were also handled well, with several well-placed elements that may cause a viewer or two to jump out of their seat (I'd never admit to that, butů). Considering this wasn't a large-scale production, I'd give kudos to the sound engineer for making the most of what he/she had to work with. On the negative side, this is still a subpar audio experience next to other Blu-ray releases and the lack of a 5.1 surround track is disappointing on any film in the horror genre.

Overall, the film lacks the sound dynamics and precision of a major release, causing the film to feel exactly as low budget as it really is. If you're capable of appreciating the audio track with that understanding, you'll likely find it's a serviceable listening experience.
