The Watch Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Watch's $68 million budget seems awfully high for a fairly low-key sci-fi/comedy that doesn't need many special effects until the last act, but hey, at least it looks good on Blu-ray, with a 1080p/AVC encode that's consistently sharp and clean. Shot digitally using Arri Alexa cameras, the movie actually has a very filmic look, with an exceptionally fine layer of sensor noise that mimics the shape and movement of 35mm grain and only spikes during the darkest scenes. As usual for most contemporary Fox releases, there are no signs of DNR or edge enhancement here, and the dual-layer 50 GB disc has plenty of room for an encode free from compression issues. The level of clarity is high throughout, to the extent that you can make out individual hairs and extremely fine facial features in closeups. While much of the film takes place at night, outside, contrast is balanced—no harshly crushed shadows or blown-out highlights—and the color grading delivers good density and richness. Overall, this is a very strong high definition presentation that seems entirely true-to-intent.


The Watch Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

20th Century Fox has equipped The Watch with the standard-issue lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. This comedy-oriented mix might not have the immersive, high intensity sound design of a dedicated sci-fi film, but it does well with the few action sequences the script throws its way. Electricity buzzes and arcs in the rear channels. Gunshots pop through the soundfield. An alien laser crosses between speakers. Extraterrestrials skitter and squish from all directions. Explosions boom with subwoofer afterburners. Quieter scenes features a modicum of environmental ambience— football stadium clamor, neighborhood noise—and everything sounds clean and balanced and grounded. Composer Christophe Beck's score is the usual action/comedy stuff, but it sounds good too, tonally/dynamically anyway. Dialogue is always clear and easy to understand, but for those that might need or want them, the disc comes with a number of subtitle and dubbing options; see above for details.
