The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Crimson Wing's evocative, salt-spattered imagery is beholden to the fierce Tanzanian elements, but Disney's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer nevertheless comes close, oh-so-close, to high definition perfection. Pale rose-petal pinks, bold splashes of sun-baked color, lavish blacks and blazing streaks of crimson make Matthew Aeberhard's artful photography come to life, even in the otherwise monochromatic plains surrounding the red waters of Lake Natron. Detail is crisp and clean as well, even though some minor ringing is apparent throughout. Edges are sharp and satisfying, the film's tasteful veneer of grain isn't intrusive or inconsistent, and every fine, feathery texture is beautifully resolved. Like most documentaries, soft shots make regular appearances, but always trace back to Wing's original source rather than the studio's proficient presentation. Contrast is strong and reliable, and while minor banding distracts on occasion, I didn't notice any other notable issues. Artifacting, aliasing, errant noise, crush, digital anomalies and their ilk are nowhere to be found, and Disney's efforts are appreciated from beginning to end. Documentary enthusiasts will be most pleased.


The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Crimson Wing's excellent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't as enveloping or gratifying as Oceans's masterful mix -- Aeberhard's sonics simply aren't as aggressive or arresting, nor should they be considering the two films' wildly different subjects -- but the results rarely disappoint. Mariella Frostrup's pleasant narration is warm, mellow and pitch-perfect, not to mention smartly layered within Paul Davies' smartly seasoned soundscape. The rear speakers are nimble when called upon and lively as needed, and directionality is fairly convincing throughout. Low-end output is a tad reserved, but never dishearteningly so. The heavy, hundreds-strong chorus of flapping wings is earnest and formidable, and The Cinematic Orchestra's score lends welcome weight to the experience. If anything, the soundfield is a bit front-heavy at times. When Aeberhard's flamingo flocks thin out, Crimson Wing simply ceases to be as immersive as it is when they're congregating en masse. And while the effect lends itself to later scenes involving a lost chick, it isn't as befitting earlier sequences. Regardless, Disney's DTS-HD mix is a solid lossless offering that complements its striking video transfer nicely.
