The Sky Crawlers

 (2008)

The Sky Crawlers Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Set in an alternate future, focuses on boy and girl teenaged pilots called Kildren who are destined to live eternally in their adolescence. Raised to engage in aerial battles over Europe for the entertainment of adults, the Kildren are conscious that every day could be their last because they fight a war organized and operated by adults. But as they embrace the reality they are faced with, they live their day-to-day lives to the fullest.

The Sky Crawlers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 22Mbps), The Sky Crawlers offers a visual experience that appears to be somewhat hampered by the source material, but still offers a mostly pleasing visual experience. Several scenes in the film incorporate visual effects that were likely intended to help blend the hand-drawn animation with computer generated backgrounds, but the end result is a noticeable softening of the picture. Lighting effects seem to be the main culprit in the loss of detail during the dialogue driven scenes (for a good example, go to the sequence around the 26 minute mark with the call-girl), but I still noticed a degree of softness in several aerial shots that were completely rendered using CGI. On the positive side, I never detected the presence of artifacting, banding, edge enhancement, or any other transfer-related anomaly, and black levels were consistently deep with a pleasing degree of contrast in both daytime and nighttime sequences. Despite the hazy nature of some scenes, the transfer is still a vast improvement over DVD resolution and my overall impressions are positive.


The Sky Crawlers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Skywalker Sound demonstrates they have the midas touch with this Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track in the native language of Japanese. Aside from one or two scenes with overly soft dialogue, this film could be used as demonstration material for the unique use of surround channel separation to create a cinematic experience that is truly engulfing. Anyone with an interest in aerial jet battles will be treated to a first-hand experience that (dare I say) surpasses anything we've heard in live action films such as Top Gun. The sound of bullets as they zing past the aircraft, or the whir of the propellors approaching from the back of the room blend together with clarity and spatial precision to create a jaw-dropping experience. Even in the subtle, dialogue-driven scenes, the creative use of environmental effects is handled with a level of care I simply didn't expect. You'll heard the tiniest drops of rain as they hit the concrete, or jump at the resulting echo of the falling bowling pins during the bowling alley sequence. I've heard impressive effects on a number of prior Blu-ray releases, but it's a rare treat to hear sounds that stand out with ultra-realism. Kudo's to everyone involved in this audio track and I hope to hear more from Skywalker Sound in the near future.
