The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Luc Besson's The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer is excellent. Detail and textures constantly impress, even during the darker sequences from the tomb in the beginning of the film. Color reproduction is also very pleasing - the variety of yellows, blues, greens, grays, and blacks look rich and well saturated but never boosted. (The footage from Egypt, which was shot on location in Egypt, not on a studio lot in Paris, is near reference quality). Additionally, there isn't even a whiff of edge-enhancement. There are no traces of problematic noise corrections either. The high-definition transfer is also free of artifacts, banding and aliasing patterns. Lastly, there are no stability issues to report in this review. (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 Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and French LPCM 2.0 (with portions of Arabic). For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided imposed (they cannot be turned off) English subtitles for the main feature. They appear inside the image frame.

The French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track serves the film very well. When it needs to impress - the numerous sequences with the pterodactyl or the ones where Adele runs for her life, etc. - its wide range of nuanced dynamics and strong and punchy bass most definitely do. So, keep your remote control close to you. On the other hand, the dialog is consistently crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. For the record, there are no problematic pops, cracks, hissing, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
