Soldier Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

If nothing else, Soldier looks the part. Warner's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer isn't without its flaws -- some digital manipulation and smearing is apparent from time to time -- but the film has never looked better. (Frankly, I doubt it will ever look much better either.) David Tattersall's colorful dystopian palette is rich and vibrant, not to mention the highpoint of the presentation, and skintones are warm, lifelike and naturally saturated throughout (barring a few overcooked closeups). Contrast is strong and stable as well, and black levels are deep and inky (a bit too inky in fact). Moreover, detail is noticeably, at-times startlingly improved from previous releases. Fine textures are more refined and rewarding, edge definition is sharper and more precisely rendered, delineation is more revealing, and ringing, though still apparent on occasion, isn't nearly as severe or distracting. Soft shots abound and clarity takes a hit whenever visual effects come into play, sure. But the film's source and photography are almost always the cause. As to the aforementioned noise reduction, several scenes exhibit an undeniable degree of waxiness, although how pervasive or serious the DNR may be is never quite clear. Thankfully, artifacting, banding, aliasing, compression anomalies and aberrant noise aren't an issue. Fans of the film won't have much to complain about.


Soldier Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

It's Warner's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that takes point, though. While certainly big, dumb and fun, it's also bold, aggressive and commanding; a deliberately unruly action mix that revels in bullets, rockets and, above all, 'splosions heaped on glorious 'splosions. Low-end output isn't exactly nuanced, but it is bombastic, sinking its teeth into every crumbling building, throaty war machine, weapon discharge, howling planetary storm, shuttle engine and snarling fireball. Not to be outdone, the rear speakers give the LFE channel a run for its money. Directionality isn't as convincing as it could be, but throwing knives, ricochets, bursts of flame and scattering debris litter the already immersive soundfield; pans aren't subtle, but they are smooth; dynamics aren't breathtaking, but they are impressive. Make no mistake, Soldier has two modes: loud and louder. Yes, dialogue suffers on occasion and Joel McNeely's score is sometimes buried in the chaos. However, voices are generally intelligible and reasonably well-prioritized, effects are clean and clear, and McNeely's music holds its own, even when the film's sound design pays it little mind. All things considered, Soldier makes the most of its first lossless mission.
