Swelter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Swelter is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. There's precious little information about this film online (it evidently has never even screened theatrically in at least the United States, though it also doesn't appear to be a direct to video title), though it looks like this has been shot digitally. Whatever the dramatic ineptitudes of the film, from a visual standpoint, it's often quite bracing, with an incredibly sharp and well detailed image that makes the most of a dusty, kind of sienna brown and yellow southwestern ambience. Fine detail is excellent throughout (see screenshot 17 for a good example). Contrast is generally consistent, though appears to have been boosted in some outdoor scenes, leading to slight blooming and a subsequent loss of detail and sharpness. Colors are generally accurate looking and nicely saturated, though as with many films of this ilk, there have been various color grading issues appended to the image in post.


Swelter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Is the Muscles from Brussels big stuff in France? Swelter offers the somewhat unusual combination of English and French audio (in both DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Dolby Digital 2.0) on this release. The mixes are virtually identical save for the voice work. There's quite a bit of "oomph" right off the bat on the 5.1 track, with excellent LFE and good directionality with regard to a glut of sound effects. Things are quite impressive here even in quieter scenes, like the introductory moments with Bishop's quasi-daughter, when she's on a riverbank with her boyfriend and ambient environmental sounds nicely dot the surrounds. Dialogue is always cleanly presented, and the eruptions of things like gunfire and explosions are nicely vivid and authentic sounding.
