The International Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The International traverses Blu-ray with a stunning 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer. This image offers incredible levels of detail across the board, seen in faces, clothing, buildings, pavement, and most every other on-screen object, either seen in the foreground or in the distant background. Backgrounds remain not only detailed but consistently sharp. The opening exterior Berlin sequence sets the tone for the remainder of the transfer wonderfully; the wet pavement and the sparkle and rain on the cars, facial close-ups, and more, all appear wonderfully rendered and immediately impress with a rich cinematic appearance. Every color takes on a perfectly natural hue throughout. The interior New York office sequence in chapter two showcases a broad range of strong, accurate colors and fine details in the individual hairs atop Naomi Watts' head or on the books on the shelves. The incredible clarity and detail of the transfer even allows viewers the opportunity to count individual bricks on the street in overhead shots or the number of pictures hanging on the wall behind Salinger's desk. Some interior shots contrast the rich, colorful tones of the exterior shots, with steely blues and grays, but no matter the scene, the transfer handles the material superbly. Blacks are dark and rich with several nighttime city exterior shots sparkling, and flesh tones look perfectly natural. The only downside is a slight bit of shimmering in a few background scenes, but nothing that detracts in the least from the presentation. The image enjoys a subtle layer of film grain, completing a visual tour-de-force that makes The International's Blu-ray transfer one of the most film-like yet, and it is definitely a contender, if not the front-runner, for best Blu-ray transfer of 2009.


The International Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The International bursts onto Blu-ray with a strong Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The film begins with an exterior shot in the midst of a pouring rainstorm, and from that moment on, listeners will find themselves completely immersed in the soundtrack. In this particular scene, rain not only pours but slams into the ground and car windshields with a noticeable presence, the entire soundstage playing the sounds of the downpour to realistic effect. Most every other effect impresses, too, and the track never shies away from creating a realistic atmosphere that pulls audiences into the film in support of the story and visuals. Whether the sound of ringing ears that feature a high-pitched tone penetrating the listening area or ambient crowd noise at an outdoor political rally, the track always places listeners in the midst of the action. The track also delivers the film's score to fine effect, its solid, deep lows rumbling the gut on several occasions. Dialogue is also delivered crisply and effectively through the middle. Finally, the shootout sounds as good as it looks. It's a majestic sonic experience as each shot bangs through the soundstage with the utmost in clarity and power. The rattling of the submachine guns as they fire off bursts of bullets reverberates throughout the soundstage, and the resulting destruction -- whether holes in the walls, holes in flesh, or the crashing of glass -- sparkles through the clarity of the lossless soundtrack. The International delivers a powerful, clear, and precise soundtrack that rounds out a fantastic Blu-ray experience.
