The Heineken Kidnapping Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I was unable to confirm the original shooting format of The Heineken Kidnapping, but the cinematographer, South African DP Giulio Biccari, has extensive credits on digital productions for British TV (Luther, MI-5) as well as American outlets (America: The Story of Us for The History Channel). Regardless of the shooting format, the result, after processing through a digital intermediate and conversion to a 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, is an immaculately sharp, noiseless and detailed image with excellent black levels and a color palette that should be a treat for those who routinely complain about the amount of "teal and orange" in today's Hollywood fare. For much of its running time, The Heineken Kidnapping features colors that are duller, earthier and more prosaic, reflecting the smaller scope of the lives of its kidnapper-protagonists. The palette changes to more somber and richer tones when it depicts Heineken's life before the abduction, and it becomes even more varied late in the film when the kidnappers flee to various exotic locations. The Blu-ray handles these shifts accurately, without oversaturation or bleeding.

Despite minimal extras, the 122-minute film has been placed on a BD-50 with limited compression and an average bitrate of 30.71Mbps. The image quality remains high, and artifacts are not an issue.


The Heineken Kidnapping Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The soundtrack of The Heineken Kidnapping isn't rich with surround effects, but the sound editing is crucial to establishing various distinctive environments. First and foremost is the nerve-wracking ambiance of Heineken's cell during his captivity, with its piped-in music (he objects to the selections) and its crucial ventilation system supplying him with air. The start and stop of the fan provide an entire drama without dialogue. Other localesóRem's home, the construction office, the local bar where the gang members are regularsóhave their own sound cues subtly woven into the mix.

I don't speak Dutch and thus can't vouch for the clarity of the dialogue. English subtitles appear in yellow and are clear and easy to read. The effective score is by Tom Holkenborg, who usually appears under the name "Junkie XL" and has contributed to the scores of Resident Evil, Shark Tale and Kingdom of Heaven.
