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

  4.5 of 5

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-sec is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.34:1, one which to my eyes is exactly the same as the theatrical version, save for the extra two minutes of footage. This is a virtually flawless transfer with a sumptuous visual allure, one filled with beautiful amber drenched sequences in Egypt and some cool blue tones in the Parisian segments. Fine detail is exceptional, revealing some fineries in the sets and costumes even in midrange shots. Colors are beautifully saturated and accurate looking. There are some very minor issues with shadow detail in some of the nighttime scenes, and at least one clunky use of CGI (when the pterodactyl picks up Espérandieu from the guillotine), but otherwise this high definition presentation is a real beauty.


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

  4.5 of 5

As with the theatrical version release, there are four audio options available, listed in the specs above. While The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-sec features a new English dub in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 that might be preferable to those who don't like subtitles, I still recommend sticking with the original French language track, also presented via DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. While the dubbing isn't overly problematical, there are enough glaring differences between lip movements and spoken word to be distracting at times, plus if you're conversant in French, you'll pick up more of the fun wordplay that's involved that doesn't really come through in translation. One way or the other, you can't really go wrong with either of these mixes, both of which offer excellent fidelity and some fun immersive effects. The sequence in the tomb is a great example, where various booby traps spring, with attendant discrete channelization of effects, and then later when Adèle and the mummy go for a crazy ride through a whirlpool when the side and rear channels are fully engaged. The pterodactyl sequences also have some great panning effects. There's a spritely score by Éric Serra that also fills the surrounds quite nicely. Dynamic range is extremely wide, with some nice uses of LFE.
