The Mission Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Mission's 1080p Blu-ray transfer won't dazzle viewers, but it's a good image in its own right. It's certainly a bit flat with some blurry edges and a few soft shots, but details are generally adequate-to-strong, whether those seen in the textured wet rocks around a waterfall or the materials of various garments. Distant vistas capture vegetation that looks clumpy and indistinct, but closer shots reveal more definition and detailing in individual leaves. Colors are somewhat muted, with greens, browns, and other earthen tones dominating most of the movie. Unsightly artifacts or digital enhancement are not readily apparent. Blacks as seen in a few nighttime scenes are steady, and flesh tones rarely feature a red push. The Mission also retains a fair bit of grain and features what is certainly a bit rough and soft but otherwise film-like texture. This is the sort of transfer that's better judged on its own merits than comparatively against newer, brighter, and crisper transfers. The Mission by its nature isn't a film that's been built to dazzle the senses, but Warner Brothers' 1080p transfer seems nicely representative of what the film has to offer in its admittedly limited visual scope.


The Mission Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Mission debuts on Blu-ray with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack that, much like the video transfer, is fine on its own merits but lacking if judged against the top-tier Blu-ray presentations. The track's most potent element comes from the raging waters around a waterfall that's seen and heard several times throughout the film. It's certainly loud but not always as seamless and smooth as one might expect, but then again, what is a powerful waterfall if not simply a wall of crunching, heavy, and mostly indistinct sound? Bass seems a bit sloppy in such scenes, but again, a raging waterfall seems like something that even in real life wouldn't be made of anything beyond a simple and, yes, audibly sloppy cacophony of sound. Jungle atmospherics and various sound effects are handled primarily across the front; the back channels never really come into play to any great degree throughout the movie. Fortunately, Warner's track handles Ennio Morricone's superb score exceptionally well; it's crisp and spacious and benefits a great deal from the lossless presentation. Action sound effects heard primarily during the final act neither impress nor disappoint; the action falls a bit flat from a sonic perspective, but that seems more the film's intention rather than a fault of the track itself. Finally, dialogue is clean and precise. The Mission's soundtrack doesn't seem built to dazzle listeners, but fans should find what's here to be pleasing and a fine compliment to the film.
