Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

 (2003)

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

A decade has passed since John Connor helped prevent Judgment Day and save mankind from mass destruction. Now, 25, Connor lives "off the grid" - no home, no credit cards, no cell phone and no job. No record of his existence. No way he can be traced by Skynet - the highly developed network of machines that once tried to kill him and wage war on humanity. Until?out of the shadows of the future steps the T-X, Skynet's most sophisticated cyborg killing machine yet. Sent back through time to complete the job left unfinished by her predecessor, the T-1000, this machine is as relentless as her human guise is beautiful. Now Connor's only hope for survival is the Terminator, his mysterious former assassin. Together, they must triumph over the technologically superior T-X and forestall the looming threat of Judgment Day?or face the apocalypse and the fall of civilization as we know it.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Warner is batting .500 with the primary specs of this release, but sadly for them, this isn't baseball, and 1/2 is a poor showing. While the film is presented in its original 2.40:1 aspect ratio, Warner has pressed the disc with a glitch that displays a 1080i image as the primary feature. When the PiP function is activated, the regular 1080p image is present. Despite this drawback (and this is a problem Warner is aware of and will supposedly correct on future pressings) the image looks very good on the whole. Terminator 3 offers excellent black levels that are deep and jet-black in appearance with excellent reproduction, not to mention fine shadow detail. This print is absolutely pristine with no discernible blemishes to speak of. Detail is fine but there is a lack of depth and clarity overall. The image often sports a glossy, processed, and unnatural look. Flesh tones often look like plastic moldings, and they sport a reddish tint through much of the runtime of the movie. Some of the green screen effects are plainly visible as characters are sometimes bathed around their edges with an unnatural and obvious glow that screams "special effect." Look at the scene in chapter 13 as John and the T- 800 are driving along in the truck. Granted, director Jonathan Mostow points out this scene in the special features, but there are some very obvious scenes in need of touch-ups to make the integration of the effects seamless. Although this a nice image on the whole, it's severely lacking in ultimate clarity, detail, and vibrancy.


Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

In perhaps one of the oddest moves in the young history of the Blu-ray format, Warner Brothers has chosen not to include a lossless audio track for Terminator 3. Saddled with only a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, the results are nevertheless mostly spectacular. While the exclusion of a lossless track is indeed unfortunate, Warner does deliver perhaps the best lossy mix I've heard yet on Blu-ray. If you like your action loud, your speakers to get an extended workout, and your ears to scream "uncle" by the end of the picture, this one's for you. For instance, take the shootout in the cemetery in chapter 18. It hits you in the gut, repeatedly, until the final shell casing crashes to the ground. What we get here is incredibly deep bass, but it sometimes suffers from being a bit muddled and it lacks the clear and clean punch the best lossless mixes offer. Surrounds are used to great effect. There's always something going on, be it the hissing path of a missile, the reverberation of an explosion, or the simple background music in a department store early in the film. They are all clear and pleasing in their reproduction. Dialogue is smooth and focused in the center, though there were a few instances in which I strained to make out what was being said under the music and action that permeates nearly the entirety of the track. Ultimately, fidelity and dynamics suffer a bit from the lack of a true lossless mix, but this track certainly suffices and, dare I say, rocks and rolls with an endless amount of energy and stamina. As good of a Dolby Digital 5.1 track as this is, I still must dock this presentation a full point for not offering a high definition audio track on a high definition format disc.
