Skyline Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

At least the Strause brothers' lumbering behemoths and diving squiddies make the most of their Blu-ray invasion. Armed with a solid 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, Skyline unleashes strong colors, reliable skintones and decent detail. Fine textures aren't laser-etched on the screen but they are adequately resolved (particularly when the Strauses' cameras are backed by the sun), edges are fairly clean and well-defined, and every shard of alien metal, stream of goo, pulpy sliver of brain matter, snaking vein and descending mother ship is intact, complete with faux-gritty resolve. A faint veneer of grain has been preserved as well, and overall clarity is solid on the whole. Yes, black levels are occasionally muted, slightly soft shots are common, delineation isn't up to snuff and interior/exterior contrast is notably inconsistent (Terry's apartment is dim, smoky and unflattering), but that's simply the nature of Michael Watson's in-the-trenches, turn the lights out! sci-fi photography. Whether or not every pixel of Universal's encode perfectly reflects the Strauses' intentions is less clear. Noise swarms the skies during some of the film's nighttime sequences, minor ringing appears from time to time, crush is a small issue and a few too many closeups look as if they've been dragged through the post-processing ringer. No significant artifacting, banding or aliasing rears its ugly little head though, meaning Skyline's proficient, presumably faithful presentation should easily satiate genre fans' collective appetite for high definition destruction.


Skyline Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

With a full-force DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track at their disposal, Skyline's aliens make their presence known early and often. Thunder splits the skies as massive ships part the clouds, giant beasts topple buildings and reduce cars to scrap metal, kamikaze drones smash into helpless fighter jets, squiddies skitter through vast parking garages, explosions pierce the soundscape, gunfire echoes in the distance, and the LFE channel and rear speakers are there every step of the way. Low-end output is tenacious and responsive (despite the fact that the film's sound design favors volume over finesse), directionality is convincing enough to cause some home-theater whiplash and cross-channel pans are startlingly smooth. Granted, Terry's penthouse proves to be a somewhat stifling, airless locale on more than one occasion, especially in the wee peaceful hours of the morning, but it shakes, rattles and rumbles with the best of 'em. Through it all, dialogue remains resilient and intelligible... for the most part anyway. A few lines get lost in the ensuing chaos, voices aren't always as crisp and clear as the next and the apartment acoustics are murder on quieter conversations. Still, it never amounts to a major issue and, frankly, comes with the genre territory. Simply put? If you enjoy Skyline's brand of city-stomping madness, you're sure to enjoy its restless Master Audio mix.
