The Polar Express Presented in 3-D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Polar Express steams onto Blu-ray with a 1080p, 2.35:1 transfer, available both in a standard 2-D transfer that is the same as that found on the previous release in addition to the new 3-D presentation that is the highlight of this package. The 3-D imagery isn't as interesting or deep as what was seen in Journey to the Center of the Earth, but it's fairly impressive nevertheless. There aren't all that many "wow" moments that make viewers jump back in their seats, but the movie does create a nice sense of depth, with some scenes looking far more 3-dimensional than others. Even with the glasses on, the effect leaves quite a bit of ghosting and random lines that don't really mesh into the image. Colors are more subdued through the 3-D prism than they are in the 2-D presentation. The first time the 3-D effect really springs to life (perhaps because it is the first truly well-lit scene in the film) takes place the first time viewers see the interior of the Express. The sense of depth is awe-inspiring, an excellent reproduction. A few scenes practically burst out of the television. While the 3-D effect begins to feel routine after a while, it should nevertheless be a big enough hit with kids and adults alike. The 2-D transfer is also impressive. It looks a tad soft and dark at times, but these issues are not necessarily a fault of the transfer. Every frame is a perfect representation of the original final digital print and the result is simply splendid. Scenes ranging from the mundane (face-to-face dialogue) to the fast-paced action sequences (a roller coaster-esque train ride) are presented in digital perfection.


The Polar Express Presented in 3-D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Warner Brothers presents The Polar Express with a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack that offers a nice improvement over the previous edition that sported a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. There is some truly fantastic bass here that is a clear cut above the previous offering. As the Polar Express pulls up to "Hero Boy's" house in chapter two, the soundstage practically becomes a makeshift train depot, the rumbling tight and concise yet loud and powerful, the moment startling in its clarity and precision. Ambient presence throughout the soundtrack is excellent. The first time "Hero Boy" speaks with the conductor, listeners hear various sound effects all over the stage that are deep, maybe even a bit foreboding, but are excellently placed all over. As the train begins to depart, the moving parts squeal and squeak and churn to life as the train gains steam and powers its way toward the North Pole in a sonically brilliant moment, subdued and underscored by Alan Silvestri's (Romancing the Stone) wonderful music. Dialogue reproduction also excels in this edition. The various high action sequences, particularly a scene featuring the train derailing atop a sheet of ice after a high speed roller-coaster like adventure, are particularly engaging, though not completely engrossing. It's a blast to listen to and a nice accompaniment to the visuals. The soundtrack generally remains focused up front with plenty of support from the rears, though there is never much in the way of loud, discrete rear channel effects. It is still a thorough, complete experience, and while the main attraction on this release of The Polar Express is the inclusion of 3-D visuals, the audio upgrade is just as good and important to the overall experience.
