Surrogates

 (2009)

Surrogates Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

FBI agents investigate the mysterious murder of a college student linked to the man who helped create a high-tech surrogate phenomenon that allows people to purchase unflawed robotic versions of themselves—fit, good looking remotely controlled machines that ultimately assume their life roles—enabling people to experience life vicariously from the comfort and safety of their own homes. The murder spawns a quest for answers: in a world of masks, who's real and who can you trust?

For more about Surrogates and the Surrogates Blu-ray release, see Surrogates Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Bruce Willis, Radha Mitchell, Rosamund Pike, Boris Kodjoe, James Francis Ginty, James Cromwell
Director: Jonathan Mostow

Surrogates Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Surrogates may not be the most attractive dystopian cautionary tale on the market, but its strong 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is faithful to Mostow's vision, basking in director of photography Oliver Wood's neon-infused cerulean blues, jarring reds and golden delicious yellows. But even beyond raw primary power, the filmmakers' oft-times steely, at-times earthy palette also features searing skies and inky shadows, lending the image a fair amount of depth. While fleshtones are all over the place -- ranging from milky to ruddy and back again -- and facial textures have been scrubbed away, such inconsistencies only affect the surrogates. Disconnected humans are blessed with lifelike skin, well-rendered stubble and other less-than-subtle indicators designed to separate the machines from those viewing the world through their own eyes. Impressive detailing is apparent elsewhere as well. The presentation not only reveals every corner of VSI's bot factories and every stone that dots the Prophet's dilapidated camp, it rarely comes up short. A few soft shots haunt the proceedings, but viewers should look to Mostow, not Disney, for an explanation. Significant artifacting, aliasing and ringing are nowhere to be found, and noise reduction has not been employed. The pore-starved surrogates resemble victims of severe DNR, but the transfer itself hasn't been touched.

If I have any lingering complaint it's that noise spikes and lulls without warning, generally whenever Greer and Peters are bathed in harshly hued light (which is to say quite often). That being said, Surrogates' Blu-ray presentation is staunch and able-bodied, and should satisfy anyone who embraces Mostow's peculiar aesthetics.


Surrogates Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Disney's hefty DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is bold and bombastic, dishing out hearty explosions, disruptor pulses, crashing helicopters, and shotgun blasts with the best of them. Dialogue is crisp and well-prioritized, surging and relenting as naturally as the film's quieter scenes and action sequences require. Voices never disappear beneath the chaos, joining the fight with ease. Speaking of the battlefront, LFE output is both weighty and rewarding, rear speaker activity is aggressive and enveloping, and dynamics are impressive. Directionality is precise as well -- motorcycles roar from channel to channel and surrogates fling across the soundfield, while factory machinery whirs in the distance and fleeing crowds dart in every direction -- and pans are slick and smooth. A handful of scenes lack subtlety, as seems to be par for the sci-fi actioner course, but only the most stringent audiophiles will find fault in the film's occasional more-is-less brow-beating. All things considered, Surrogates sounds great. Even if you balk at Mostow's flashy utopian dystopia, you'll at least be able to enjoy its immersive sonics.
