The Dictator Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Dictator's 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer isn't necessarily a dazzler, but it's proficient and stable from beginning to end. The digital photography never looks too flat, lifeless, or glossy, but it's not amongst the finest of its kind, either, failing to reach that current pinnacle where digital almost looks as good as film. Still, the image is crisp and very well defined throughout, right down to the textures of the obviously fake Aladeen beard. The digital shoot also captures the finest nuanced details of the ornate decorations around his Wadiya palace, the New York organic market, city exteriors, and other locations seen throughout the movie. Colors are rich and steady, vibrant and balanced. Bright greens; golds; and the red, white, and blue jump suit Aladeen wears when attempting to "blend in" all dazzle. The entire palette is even and colors are sharp and well defined in any light, whether bright exteriors, well-to-moderately lit interiors, and nighttime shots. Blacks are deep and pure, never going gray or, conversely, too dark and absorbing critical detailing. Skin tones are even, though sometimes pasty as they are occasionally prone to appear with digital photography. Light banding and a touch of shimming are also evident in a few spots. Altogether, however, this is a very good-looking image that serves the movie nicely.


The Dictator Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Dictator features a Comedy-basic DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless Blu-ray soundtrack. This one is rather forgettable but, at the same time, more than suffices for the movie's relatively simple sonic needs. Music plays as expected: there's natural front-end spacing, wonderful clarity, a good low end support element, and a hint of surround activity. There's little in terms of energized action elements, but the track delivers some fine nuanced effects with commendable precision. Chanting crowds protesting Aladeen outside the United Nations building nicely envelop the listener, making him or her feel part of the group. Light city ambience -- passing traffic and pedestrians on ground level, light breezes and singing birds up on top of the organic marketplace -- has been integrated into the track to help build an authentic sense of place. Perhaps the most prominent effect comes as fire rages and sweeps through the listening area for a brief time in chapter three. Otherwise, this one's rather simple. Dialogue is even and clear, flowing effortlessly from the center channel. This one isn't a system-seller or an eardrum-buster, but Paramount's track gets the job done with high marks all around.
