Taken Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

20th Century Fox brings Taken to Blu-ray with a gorgeous 1080p, 2.34:1-framed transfer. The transfer offers a perfect film-like appearance, with strong, lifelike colors, tremendous depth, and extraordinary levels of natural detail. Exterior daytime shots look remarkable, and the darker sequences shine, too. No matter the material thrown its way, this high definition offering creates a wonderful cinematic atmosphere that recalls the best visual presentations as enjoyed in theaters. Blacks are inky and deep with no discernible loss of detail in corners and shadows. As for the detail, this transfer reveals just about everything there is to see. From the basics -- lines in faces and the textures in pavement and stone-laden walkways -- to the more mundane, like wrinkles in shirts, the transfer offers a continuous string of top-quality levels of detail. Flesh tones appear somewhat rosy through most of the film, however, and colors, while strong, appear slightly overly warm but never to an excessive degree. All in all, however, Taken makes for another wonderful Blu-ray transfer from Fox.


Taken Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

As expected, the first-class visuals on this disc are complimented by another reference-grade DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack from Fox. Taken features audio that consistently emanates from every corner of the listening area, and with a crispness and clarity that matches the very best Blu-ray currently has to offer. Not only does information pour from every speaker, but it sounds incredibly lifelike throughout. An early segment at a pop concert reveals strong bass, even if the sound plays as somewhat muffled as it is heard in the background and at a distance from the primary action. The track also creates a fine blend of realistic ambience in many scenes. A restaurant scene in chapter four reveals an array of small nuances scattered about the soundstage that creates a pleasing, sonically inviting environment. Parts of the score take on a hard-rock feel, each of these devastating the primary front speakers, the sound aggressively spilling out with clarity and deep, chest-rattling bass. Gunshots also ring out with hard-hitting power, sounding clear and distinct one from the other, while explosions positively rock the listening area. Taken also delivers pitch-perfect dialogue reproduction. Once again, 20th Century Fox has delivered a power-packed soundtrack for a new release film. Taken may not set the bar higher than it already is, but it definitely reaches the current pinnacle of lossless audio presentations for home consumption.
