Special Forces Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.38:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Stephane Rybojad's Special Forces arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Entertainment One.

The high-definition transfer appears to have been sourced from the same master StudioCanal had access to when they prepared their Blu-ray release of Special Forces for the UK market. Unsurprisingly, the U.S. and UK releases look virtually identical. The only very small discrepancy I spotted is in the area of color reproduction - the film's prominent yellow tint is slightly stronger on the StudioCanal release (compare screencapture #3 with screencapture #10 from our review of the StudioCanal release). Depth and especially clarity are often outstanding, despite the fact that various portions of the film were shot under drastically different conditions. Contrast levels are also stable. There are no serious transfer specific anomalies, such as heavy banding and aliasing. Also, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. To sum i all upl, viewers who have been hoping to get a North American Blu-ray release of Special Forces should be pleased to know that Entertainment One's presentation of the film is every bit as impressive as StudioCanal's. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Special Forces Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English Dolby Digital 2.0 (with portions of English and Persian). For the record, Entertainment One have provided optional English, English SDH, and French SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The lossless track is appropriately aggressive. Many of the shootouts also have some excellent surround effects. There is also a good range of nuanced dynamics that allow the soundtrack to blend well with the action sequences. The dialog is very crisp, clean, and stable. There are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
