The Whistleblower Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shooting on grainy 35mm, director of photography Kieren McGuigan has given The Whistleblower a moody, intentionally gritty look, and 20th Century Fox has replicated it wonderfully on Blu-ray, with a strong 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. The chunky grain structure hasn't been touched by digital noise reduction and there are no signs of edge enhancement or overt compression problems, making this a faithful port to home video. There are, however, a few traits inherent to the cinematography that are worth pointing out. The most notable one is that the contrast curve is heavily weighted in the shadows, which often obscure detail in darker scenes. I have no doubt this is intentional, but black levels probably could've been a bit less intense. It also seems that there are several scenes where the focus isn't precise, creating a slightly soft image. Otherwise, the picture is more than adequately sharp--with satisfying detail in facial, hair, and clothing textures--and densely colored, utilizing a palette of grungy, dirty-looking hues. This isn't an "eye candy" film by any stretch of the imagination, but it comes across effectively enough on Blu-ray.


The Whistleblower Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Whistleblower sounds off on Blu-ray with 20th Century Fox's usual lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround sound presentation. Like the picture quality, there's nothing here that will outright amaze you--no real ear candy--but the mix is clear and dynamically weighty, and features some decently immersive sound design. Although the experience is anchored up front, the rear channels are used fairly often for environmental ambience--like rain or wind or whore-house clamor--and occasional effects, from zipping UN vans and exploding land mines to helicopters chop-chopping through between speakers. The subwoofer kicks in impressionistically when necessary to add some dramatic oomph, and the track is filled out with a quietly involving score. Dialogue is always clean and easily understood, and for those who might need or want them, optional English, English SDH, and Spanish subtitles are available.
