The Crossing Guard Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Sean Penn's The Crossing Guard arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Studio Canal.

The high-definition transfer has been struck from a dated source and most of the time it shows. There are traces of mild filtering throughout the entire film as well as sporadic contrast fluctuations. A few tiny flecks also pop up here and there. Fortunately, there are no traces of post-production sharpening. Color corrections have not been performed either. Naturally, even though the film does look dated for the most part it still has a filmic look. I specifically wanted to mention this because the old R1 DVD release Miramax produced was non-anamorphic (I have not seen the new Echo Bridge DVD release and cannot comment on it) and today it is virtually unwatchable. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. All in all, even though there is plenty of room for improvement, for the time being, given the film's history, I consider this release a decent upgrade. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content),


The Crossing Guard Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English LPCM 2.0, and French LPCM 2.0. For the record, Studio Canal have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track opens up the film in all the right places rather well, but anyone expecting a wide range of nuanced dynamics will likely be disappointed. Depth and improved clarity are the two most notable improvements. The excellent soundtrack, in particular, benefits the most. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow. additionally, there are no sync issues, distortions, or problematic audio dropouts to report in this review.
