The Town Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Well that's one mystery solved. The original Blu-ray release of The Town featured two separate 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encodes on a single BD-50 disc; a 125-minute theatrical transfer and a 153-minute extended cut presentation. Without seamless branching, each encode's video bitrate took troubling dives, outraging some snap-judgment spec junkies. (Perhaps rightfully so, even if on principle alone.) No matter how good either version looked -- and both versions looked and continue to look great -- a question persisted: could either cut have looked better if it had been given more room to breathe? Thankfully, the new Ultimate Collector's Edition presentation all but puts that question to bed, as the "Extended Cut with Alternate Ending" is presented on a separate BD-50 with a generous 25+ Mbps encode all its own. But is it any better? Yes... but honestly, not that much better. While relentless screenshot scientists (particularly those with a bone to pick) will no doubt uncover any and every improvement they stumble upon while poring over the UCE's 25+ Mbps encode, down to the briefest blip and most penitent pixel, there aren't any significant differences to report, at least none that can be easily detected by the naked eye. With the film in motion and while sitting at a proper viewing distance, all three encodes are comparable. Slight ringing and crush, however minor, make similar appearances across all three presentations, regardless of bitrate, and all three feature similar highs and relative lows. There are some fairly innocuous differences, though. By my estimation, the new encode's grain field is a bit more refined and even, and artifacting isn't as prevalent. (Not that the infrequent, almost negligible artifacting that pops up from time to time in the original presentations sullies either one.)

All that being said, if do-or-die videophiles relied on nothing but their eyes to evaluate The Town's three terrific transfers, there wouldn't be any desire to analyze screenshots on a pixel-by-pixel, bit-by-bit basis. Robert Elswit's chilly streetwise palette is brimming with windy Boston blues, primaries have a cold but calculating veracity, skintones are purposefully withdrawn yet undeniably lifelike, and black levels are deep, evocative and foreboding. Likewise, tremendous respect has been paid to Affleck's every cinematic choice, be it his color timing or the stark splashes of light and shadow he brandishes from scene to scene. And detail? Closeups are teeming with crisp, revealing, magnificently resolved fine textures, the film's gritty veneer of grain is intact, and edge definition is sharp and natural. Yes, soft shots are fairly common, and yes, minor edge halos are apparent from time to time. However, the filmic softness and inherent inconsistencies that grace the proceedings aren't a serious issue -- each one traces back to Elswit's original photography, not some mysterious issue with either transfer -- and the faint ringing that appears isn't obtrusive, never becomes a distraction, and was visible in the film's theatrical print. Moreover, banding and aliasing are MIA, substantial macroblocking is nowhere to be found, and DNR clearly isn't in play. Simply put, The Town looks great, no matter which version you choose. Not perfect, but great. I walked away a happy man.


The Town Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Town also features three separate DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks, none of which require any lengthy defense. On the contrary, all three lossless audio presentations are primed to drop jaws, bruise sternums, and engage even the most detached audiophiles. Brawny LFE output grants gunshots realistic resonance, collisions unnerving weight, and explosions deafening power; immersive rear speaker activity transports listeners to every dank bar, crowded street corner, bustling bank, noisy stadium and wind-swept community garden the characters inhabit; and the soundfield is as enveloping as it is believable. And it only gets better from there. Whether whispered at a streetside cafe, snarled in a kingpin's flower shop, or screamed during a botched heist, dialogue remains clear and distinct, and never gets buried beneath the film's ensuing chaos. Voices are grounded perfectly in Affleck's bleak Boston cityscape, and directional effects are precise and convincing. No flashbang superficiality or sleight-of-hand here; just top-notch sound design and top-tier sonics. Simply put, Warner's lossless tracks represent the high point of The Town's Ultimate Collector's Edition release, and will thoroughly satisfy anyone and everyone caught in any of the tracks' crossfire.
