Taps Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Taps' AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1 is surprisingly strong, with only a few passing issues that may bother the more persnickety videophile. The image is clear and there is little if any damage to report. Colors are strong and very well saturated, especially the reds, which are in fact so robustly saturated that they are just this side of blooming a time or two. Fine detail is intact and the grain structure is natural looking without ever becoming overwhelming. There is some occasional softness in some of the darker nighttime shots, which are slightly hobbled by minor crush. A couple of quickly passing moments of aliasing are also in evidence, as is some moderate edge enhancement and haloing, but otherwise this is a very crisp and appealing transfer that should delight the film's fans.


Taps Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While Taps has a perfectly solid, and at times very robust, lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix, it doesn't really bristle with consistent surround activity. The film's best sonic moments are in some of the battle scenes, where a variety of gunshots echo with ferocious LFE and discrete channel utilization is at its most prominent. Otherwise, this is actually a fairly small scale dialogue driven film which sports excellent fidelity if no outright "wow" moments of incredible immersion. Maurice Jarre's score is very well represented and the overall mix is very well handled, with some appealing and dramatic dynamic range.
