Stand Off

 (2011)

Stand Off Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In a comedy of errors, Jimbo robs a fish market to pay back his gambling debts to a local Belfast mobster, but the market turns out to be a front for the very same mobster. On the run from both the cops and the mob, Jimbo takes refuge in a local antique shop, where the proprietor mistakes Jimbo for a hitman. A baby, a band of Irish gypsies and a beautiful African immigrant are all caught in the crossfire.

Stand Off Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Definitive information about Stand Off's shooting format was not available. IMDb claims that the film was captured with a Panasonic Genesis HD camera, but Deluxe London is credited for developing the negative. Regardless of the capture process, post-production was completed on a digital intermediate, and the result, as reflected on the 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray released by Ketchup Entertainment and ARC Entertainment is a clear, detailed and noiseless image, with well-differentiated black levels and good shadow detail.

The color palette chosen by director George and his cinematographer, Des Whelan, should provide a welcome change to the many internet posters currently protesting the trend in mainstream Hollywood films toward contrasting shades of teal and orange. No such bias appears in Stand Off. Earth tones dominate the interiors, notably ochre inside Maguire's shop, an intimidating sickly green for the back room where Mad Dog does his serious business and amber lighting for the inside of his public establishment. The streets of Belfast and the Whole Lotta Sole fish market have the natural colors of an overcast day, until night falls and they look like streets usually do under emergency floodlights. Belfast doesn't look like an American city, and Stand Off doesn't look like an American movie.

At a trim 89 minutes, with no extras other than a trailer, the film has compressed easily onto a BD-25, while maintaining a respectable bitrate just under 27 Mbps.


Stand Off Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Despite the fierce array of armament on display, Stand Off's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack has little opportunity to display its audio prowess with the sound of weapons fire. When guns do discharge in this comedy of errors, the event is usually brief and unintentional. The latter part of the film does feature an event with a more, shall we say, intense sonic signature (further specifics would be unfair to first-time viewers), and the soundtrack does it full justice. Otherwise, the track does a nice job of distinguishing the various Belfast environments where the film takes place, whether it's the normal street scene outside Maguire's shop, the gypsy encampment by the shore, the "buskers" concert that Joe and Sophie attend, Mad Dog's headquarters, the hubbub of the Whole Lotta Sole market or the increasingly tense police barricades after Jimbo locks himself inside Maguire's. The musical score, which is both jaunty and soulful in a vein that is distinctively Irish, is by Foy Vance.

The film's dialogue is clearly presented, but it's a stew of different accents. Turn on English subtitles as needed.
