The Impossible Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Impossible is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films and Summit Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is an exceptionally sharp looking high definition presentation that is strangely helped by the ferocity of the destruction it depicts. Director Bayona and cinematographer Óscar Faura emphasize the cruel beauty of Thailand after the tsunami, but they also emphasize the lyrical gorgeousness of the location before the destruction hits, making for an at times unsettling dialectic. There is awesome depth of field in many of the exterior shots, while close-ups offer abundant fine object detail (sometimes gruesomely so, as in the glimpse we're given of Maria's gashing leg wound). Colors are very deeply saturated and accurate looking (the film has a refreshing lack of over aggressive color grading, though some scenes have been skewed toward the yellow side of the spectrum).


The Impossible Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Impossible features lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mixes in both English and Spanish. Both of these tracks offer astounding LFE as well as sterling fidelity and awesome dynamic range. As Bayona mentions in the commentary, a lot of attention was paid to the sound design of this film, and that care comes through immaculately well on both of these lossless offerings. From the first disturbing rumble that begins the film (is it a tsunami or something else entirely?) through the big set piece of the waves crashing ashore to later, more relatively restrained moments, these tracks offer brilliantly immersive qualities that regularly place discrete effects around the soundfield, adding immeasurably to the generally realistic ambience of the film.
