The Island

 (2005)

The Island Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Lincoln Six-Echo is a resident of a seemingly utopian but contained facility in the mid-21st century. Like all of the inhabitants of this carefully controlled environment, Lincoln hopes to be chosen to go to the "The Island" — reportedly the last uncontaminated spot on the planet — until he makes a terrible discovery that everything about his existence is a lie and that he is actually more valuable dead than alive. Together with a beautiful fellow resident named Jordan Two-Delta, Lincoln makes a daring escape to the outside world he's never known. Now, with the forces of the institute that once housed them relentlessly hunting them down, Lincoln and Jordan engage in a desperate race for their lives.

For more about The Island and the The Island Blu-ray release, see the The Island Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

The Island Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Island makes its Blu-ray debut with a very high quality, though not quite perfect, 1080p transfer. Generally, the image appears as extraordinarily crisp with generous detailing and gorgeous colors. Though much of the film takes place in the cold, sterile, white and gray-dominated interiors of the facility, it offers a splendid array of hues -- from harsh desert landscapes to brightly-accented city venues -- that are neither too hot nor too dim but perfectly replicated in high definition. Fine detailing a strength, too; though Scarlett Johansson occasionally looks like a piece of plastic rather than a human being, the vast majority of facial textures are naturally rough and revealing. Clothing textures and general accents around the frame, whether, again, in the very-plain facility, around the scruffier and arid desert landscapes, or the polished city locales, are all top-notch. The image retains a layer of film grain that accentuates the positives of the fine detailing, though there are occasions where the image appears a bit too unnaturally sharp. Other maladies include slightly warm flesh tones, a few blocky backgrounds, and just a hint of aliasing in select backdrops. Its minute deficiencies aside, this is a very high quality release from Paramount. It's not quite in the same league as other releases of a similar vintage -- think War of the Worlds and Minority Report -- but The Island certainly holds its own, and then some.


The Island Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Paramount cranks out a deliciously full and exhilarating DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack for the The Island's inaugural Blu-ray release. This is a pleasantly full-bodied track that's cinematically big, hearty, effective, and deep, rounded into form thanks to wonderful clarity and seamless spacing across all channels. Music is vigorous in delivery but remains sturdily accurate and robustly clear. The low end can be a little shaky and unkempt, but such is life for many a high-octane action picture. The surround channels carry plenty of information, both music and sound effects. Light ambience of all forms -- blowing steam, dripping water, the churning of heavy machinery -- add some realistic flavor to the track, but the surrounds really kick in for the delivery of heftier, action-specific effects, whether motorcycles revving and zipping through the listening area or bullets impacting various surfaces situated all over the soundstage. Gunshots are hearty, crisp, and dangerous, and explosions pack a nicely potent wallop. Dialogue is balanced and grounded in the center speaker, always intelligible and never straying save for those few moments where light reverberations create a more realistic experience. The Island doesn't quite achieve sonic perfection, but this is easily an upper-tier soundtrack and the perfect accompaniment to a Michael Bay film.
