The Score

 (2001)

The Score Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Nick Wells is ready to retire from crime. He'll settle down with his girlfriend Diane and focus on running his legitimate business: a Montreal jazz club. But Max, his fence, friend and financial partner, has other plans for him. Persuading Nick to violate two of his most important rules- always work alone and never operate in the city where you live -Max teams him up with Jack Teller. A young, aggressive and talented thief, Jack needs Nick's safe-cracking talents to make his first big score: a prize worth millions locked behind the walls of Montreal's Custom's House. It's a volatile combination in which egos clash and sparks fly, but the thrill of the heist has a grip on all three men, who won't give up no matter what the risk.

The Score Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Score misses the mark with its Blu-ray debut. Paramount's serviceably lackluster 1080p transfer won't satisfy format aficionados, but it nevertheless beats the the film's previous standard definition releases in every category. The image lacks precision sharpness at every turn; it never appears downright soft, but it could certainly use a bit more crispness throughout. The transfer fails to capture the intricate detailing often seen in the more naturally filmic transfers, but never does the image appear excessively smoothed. The color palette appears a bit dull, but The Score doesn't set out to engage in any razzle-dazzle, either. By its very nature, The Score is a bland picture in terms of its visual structure, but this Blu-ray release does it no favors. Blacks play around the periphery of perfection in a few scenes but never quite get there, mostly due to looking a too overbearing and murky in far more scenes than not while usually dotted with noise. Dragging the transfer down further is a series of minor nitpicks including slight haloing, unobtrusive speckling, minor blocking and banding, and a stray hair that remains on-screen for a good 15 seconds near the end of the movie. Paramount's transfer is certainly a downer, but it's not a disaster. More frustrating than disappointing, The Score yields a problematic but nevertheless watchable 1080p experience.


The Score Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Score features a boring but steady Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. It seems as if by design the track is reserved and lacking in energy, perhaps as a way of further emphasizing story and characters over technical showmanship. Things play out primarily across the front, with the film's soundtrack lacking vitality but playing with a fair bit of crispness. Howard Shore's Jazz-inspired score plays as audibly subdued but nevertheless silky smooth with fair spacing and good clarity across the front but not real support from the back. In fact, the surround speakers are only sporadically engaged and lightly at that; the subtle din of a none-too-busy restaurant in chapter nine spreads into the back and does a fair job of placing the audience in a seat at the table, while a single gunshot heard during the climax offers the most concentrated energy the back channels are going to yield throughout the two-hour runtime. A few other sonic surprises heard during the climax deliver a bit of oomph to the experience, but even the track's most aggressive elements don't fully draw the listening audience into the movie. Much like the video presentation, this one's not particularly disappointing, just in every way vanilla.
