The Proposition

 (2005)

The Proposition Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In Australia in the 1880s, Charlie Burns and his brother Mikey are captured by Captain Morris Stanley after a frenzied gunfight. Together with their psychopathic brother Arthur, the Burns are wanted for a brutal crime. Captain Stanley puts before Charlie a dangerous, yet tempting proposition in a bid to bring an end to the cycle of violence: Charlie will be released if he agrees to hunt down his murderous older brother in order to save his other brother from the noose.

For more about The Proposition and the The Proposition Blu-ray release, see the The Proposition Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Proposition Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Proposition rides onto Blu-ray with a strong 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer that captures both the movie's picturesque locales and its ugly underbelly equally well. Of surprise is the absence of a more potent grain structure; one look at what the movie is all about would lead one to believe that it would be swirling in director-intended grain to give it that rougher texture that's come to define movies of this style, but The Proposition is incredibly smooth throughout. To smooth? Not really. There doesn't seem to have been much in the way of artificial grain removal; the image retains natural detailing on most every surface, whether John Hurt's wrinkly face or the rocky and pebbly terrain that's seen throughout the movie. Additionally, the transfer does a great job of capturing the caked-on dirt, dust, grime, blood, and sweat that seem ever-present on faces and clothes. Though some elements look significantly softer than others, there's an equal amount of sharpness to much of the image that, on the whole, impresses a great deal. The transfer often exhibits a good sense of depth. Blacks are nicely resolved -- deep and dark -- without exhibiting any excessive crushing effect, and flesh tones are more often than not neutral in shade, effected more by dirt and blood and environmental conditions than any wayward element of the transfer to Blu-ray. Overall, this is a solid effort from First Look; it's not quite a reference-grade presentation, but fans should be more than pleased with what this disc has to offer from a visual perspective.


The Proposition Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Proposition sports a quality Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack that brings the dusty and violence-ridden 1880s Australian Outback to rich, sometimes mesmerizing, life. Following a subdued opening title sequence, the track tosses the listener into the middle of an intense shootout that's easily one of the best of its kind on Blu-ray, even rivaling some of the elements from another standout Western Blu-ray soundtrack, 3:10 to Yuma. In this sequence, the soundstage becomes flooded with the sounds of gunfire and seemingly riddled with bullets; rounds zip all over the listening area and seem to emanate from every corner, and the resultant impacts on metal surfaces brings an almost paralyzing effect as it seems that at any moment a stray round might come through a speaker. Then, almost as quickly as the shooting began, there's silence, with only the stench of death and the buzzing of a fly penetrating the listening area. Weapons fire is strongly realized throughout the rest film, making excellent use of the entire soundstage and the subwoofer, too. The Proposition's lossless soundtrack also excels in creating a palpable environment; atmospherics effects are well-integrated, including a chilling breeze that blows about the listening area in chapter seven. Dialogue, too, is naturally and cleanly delivered throughout. This is a well-rounded track that immerses the listener into the picture, making it a strong companion to an already engrossing motion picture.
