The Road Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Road travels onto Blu-ray with a 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer that's, frankly, a bit hard to judge. Thick halos are visible in some shots; for instance, a cluster of dead trees that are seen during the film's opening voiceover look like they're glowing, and the effect remains here and there throughout the movie. Otherwise, Sony's high definition transfer is a thing of wonder in every other area. In the few bright and colorful scenes that open the film, viewers will marvel at the intricate detail on delicate flowers and roughly-textured brick walls, and while the picture immediately shifts to a rotten, gray, dead visual tone thereafter, the transfer marvelously captures every nuance amidst the deliberately weathered and worn visuals. Details are readily visible even under these conditions, whether the scuffs on a well-worn pistol, the texture of a stuffed animal, frays in tattered clothing, scraggly facial hairs, and even pores and wrinkles underneath untold amounts of caked-on dirt and grime; Sony's 1080p transfer delivers an extraordinary amount of information even through the deliberately lifeless visual scheme. The color palette is limited at best; grays, blacks, and browns dominate the transfer, and even brighter objects -- a dusty red can of Coke -- appears terribly faded but intentionally so. Through all of this, black levels amaze. In several scenes they might absorb some of the finer details, but in a picture that's overwhelmingly dark and harsh, there's little room to complain. Flesh tones reflect the dusty and worn look the picture employs. The print is free of unwanted dirt and debris, and it's coated with a light sprinkling of grain. The Road's visual tone and Blu-ray presentation is reflective of the film: this is an ugly picture, but it's also, for the most part, lovingly reproduced on Blu-ray. The apparent edge enhancement is cause for concern, but it's the only real problem in an otherwise spectacular release from Sony.


The Road Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Road winds onto Blu-ray with a high quality DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack that does well to aurally place the listener in the midst of the decayed and unwelcoming world the film creates. There's no shortage of surround activity; rain falls about the listening area in several scenes, crackling fire engulfs the soundstage in another, gusting winds blow through the speakers, and imaging across both the front and the back is splendid, with sounds placed just so but also traversing the listening area with ease. The track captures the entire gambit of sound, from the smallest of atmospheric nuances to the rumbles of an earthquake, the latter delivering a potent amount of bass that's tight and aggressive but not mushy or undefined. For the track's several more powerful and pronounced moments, there are many more that are quiet, contemplative, and reflective of the lifeless atmosphere. Like the video quality, the sound design often creates an absence of information to further reinforce the death and destruction that has left but a shell of a world once full of sound and life. Dialogue, too, can be sharp or subdued, with a few quieter lines a bit hard to hear, even at reference volume. Overall, there's little room for complaint; Sony's has once again delivered a wonderful lossless soundtrack that suits the movie well.
