The Descendants Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

New releases from 20th Century Fox/Fox Searchlight almost always look fantastic on Blu-ray, and The Descendants is no exception, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's as sun-drenched and colorful as Hawaii itself. The movie was shot on 35mm and has a very naturally filmic look here, with a warm grain structure that's untouched by digital noise reduction, edge enhancement, or other unnecessary types of post-production filtering. (And it should almost go without saying that the print itself is in pristine condition, with no white specks or debris.) Clarity isn't the absolute sharpest I've seen this year, but there's plenty of fine, high-definition detail in the picture, from the individually visible whiskers of Clooney's perpetual five o'clock shadow to the straw stitching of Judy Greer's sunhat. The color grading is wonderful too. Reds and grass-greens are especially vibrant, skin tones are realistically tanned, and the image has consistently deep black levels and punchy but not overcranked contrast. Sitting pretty on a dual-layer, 50 GB disc, there are no compression problems to worry about either. What else is there to say? The Descendants is an eye-catcher.


The Descendants Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Nearly—but not quite—as impressive is the film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, a breezy, dialogue-driven affair. Like the movie itself, the mix is low-key and laid-back. You'll hear a modicum of oceanside ambience in the rear speakers—distant waves, bird calls, lapping water, quiet wind— but there are very few explicitly directional effects. You won't exactly feel like you yourself are sitting on the beach, surrounded by the surf and spray, but the sound design is strong enough to give us a good sense of the environment. The rest of the mix is occupied with the almost non-stop Hawaiian music score—expect lots of ukuleles and gentle crooning—and the characters' dialogue, which is always clean, clear, and easy to understand. This is by no means an aggressive or even particularly active track, but it suits the film's purposes just fine. The disc also includes a descriptive audio track, Dolby Digital 5.1 French and Spanish dubs, and English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
