Sanctum

 (2011)

Sanctum Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Master diver Frank McGuire has explored the South Pacific's deep underground Esa-ala Caves for months. But when his exit is cut off in a flash flood during a hurricane, Frank's team - including his 17-year-old son Josh and financier Carl Hurley - are forced to radically alter plans. With dwindling supplies, the crew must navigate an underwater labyrinth to make it out. The unavoidable question: Can they survive?

For more about Sanctum and the Sanctum Blu-ray release, see Sanctum Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Rhys Wakefield, Allison Cratchley, Christopher Baker, Ioan Gruffudd, Richard Roxburgh, Alice Parkinson

Sanctum Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Ooph. Sanctum isn't pretty, thanks in large part to a problematic source. Black levels are sometimes muted, skintones typically appear a tad washed out, textures don't exactly pop, depth is fragmented (for lack of a better term), noise reduction has been applied here and there (in post, not for the film's Blu-ray release) and many a scene looks as if it's been cut from a hunk of digital plastic. The result is a tricky-to-evaluate 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer that remains true to its source but suffers for its devotion. Normally, I wouldn't dream of advocating changes to a filmmaker's vision, but -- brace for debate -- some rudimentary color and contrast tweaks would have improved matters. That said, there are pinpoints of light at the end of the cavern. Sun-bathed colors are warm and striking, primaries are fairly strong, overall detail is decidedly decent, the majority of closeups and midrange shots are satisfying, and delineation is quite revealing (too revealing actually, considering the environment). Moreover, the film's underwater scenes lend the picture some clout and look better than those that take place in Grierson's suspiciously well-lit underground gauntlet. On the technical front though, mild banding creeps in, brief bursts of noise mar a few shots and faint pulldown-like anomalies sometimes circle the cavers' head lamps. Otherwise, the encode is sound. Proceed accordingly.


Sanctum Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track faces some of the same source-based challenges, albeit to a lesser degree. Sanctum's sound design isn't bad, not by any means, but it isn't very nuanced either. The rear speakers are teeming with crisp, clean, engaging effects, but they rarely connect with other elements in the mix, leaving an empty chasm in the middle of the soundfield around which all else swirls. Gushing water doesn't fill every inch of the room, it roars near the front, pours in from the rear and leaves the carpet in between dry. Individual echoes don't rebound from every angle, they can be traced -- quite easily -- to the exact speaker handling each one. While it isn't distracting per se, audiophiles will take notice. Otherwise, there aren't really any issues of note. Dialogue is intelligible and neatly prioritized in the soundscape, LFE output infuses the film with welcome weight and intensity, and David Hirschfelder's score mimics its surroundings and surges to the forefront whenever called upon. Storms rage, waters churn, chunks of earth smash into the ground and screams pierce the air. Yes, it's all rather loud and a little turbulent. Big, dumb and fun, really. But it's also assertive, eager to please and, frankly, suits the tone of the film just fine.
