The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl

 (2005)

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Sometimes the most amazing superheroes are the ones inside your dreams. So discovers ten-year-old Max, an outcast little boy who has become lost in his own fantasy world in an attempt to escape the everyday worries of dealing with parents, school bullies and no-fun summer vacations. But when Max realizes the cool characters, high-flying adventures and incredible secret powers that dwell in his imagination might be far more real than anyone is willing to believe, his whole world changes. Now, Max is blasting off on a mission to Planet Drool where Sharkboy--a kid once lost at sea and raised under the watchful fins of sharks only to become half-shark--and Lavagirl--a volcanic beauty who emits leaping flames and red-hot rocks--live in a realm of astonishing wonders, one in which the Train of Thought can whisk you off to the mouth-watering Land of Milk and Cookies. Teeming with mountainous roller coasters and violet skies, Planet Drool looks like the perfect kid paradise until Max meets up with the shocking Mr. Electric and his sidekick Minus who are trying to do away with all dreams forever. With Sharkboy and Lavagirl in trouble, only Max can guide them-- by imagining every clever move of their wily escape from Mr. Electric's Lair.

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl is presented on Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Whatever problems there may have been in the film's original 3D theatrical exhibition have been largely ameliorated by this flat 2D rendering, as the film pops with often magnificent color, in a crazy quilt of everything from pastels to bright primaries, and all robustly saturated and popping very nicely. The overall image is very nicely detailed, though Rodriguez is obviously working within the confines of green screen and a relatively smaller budget, so some of the CGI is purposefully fanciful rather than photorealistic. While the blending of elements is usually done quite seamlessly, the Blu- ray does occasionally show the literal seams of blending live action with green screen interpolated backgrounds. Close-ups reveal a wealth of fine detail, and overall the presentation here, while soft at times due to the ubiquitous CGI, is certainly heads and shoulders better than it evidently was theatrically, where many people complained about the diffuse color due to the anaglyph 3D glasses.


The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl boasts a very aggressive lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that is extremely immersive a lot of the time and also has abundant LFE that should please ardent audiophiles who like those floorboards to rattle. From the first moments of the film, we're literally awash in surround activity, with lots of water sounds as the origin story of Sharkboy is detailed. Throughout the film, though, a variety of quite inventive sound effects populates the surrounds with excellent consistency. The storm sequence which delivers Sharkboy and Lavagirl to Max's classroom is a riot of low end rumbling and some great panning wind effects. Later when the kids are on a kind of roller coaster on Planet Drool, we once again get some very well detailed directionality as they zoom around the frame. The film has an abundance of inventive sound effects to match its visual whimsy, and those are all presented with a lot of impact on this DTS track. Nonetheless, dialogue is clear and consistently placed forward in the mix, even in the busiest moments.
