Underworld: Awakening 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Potential 3D viewers might rightly pause before plopping down the extra dough for Underworld: Awakening. After all, very dark films have a fairly poor track record on Blu-ray 3D, most simply going overwhelmingly dark to the point that the image becomes nearly unwatchable -- think Priest. Fortunately, that's not the case with this transfer. Sony's released one of the finest live action 3D titles to date with Underworld: Awakening, the image offering a consistent, high quality 3D image while remaining accurate to the goodness of the general transfer qualities which made the 2D-only release so wonderful. To the more general attributes first. As noted, this release maintains an excellent black level balance. Never does the image grow too dark, despite being very dark by its very nature. The image is very well defined and immensely clear, with the black and blue elements playing nicely together and with the same accuracy which appears on the 2D disc. In those few times the image offers something that's not black or gray, such colors appear accurate, like blood red and fireball orange. Fine detail remains excellent, too; clothing seams and lines, facial textures, and little inconsequential elements like the fine lines of damaged and shredded wooden planks all add up to a very high quality presentation. In short, the image lives up to its potential and doesn't succumb to typical 3D issues. The better news is that the 3D elements are first-rate, too.

Underworld: Awakening's 3D-specific attributes sparkle. The image enjoys a constant, even sense of general depth. Even casual dialogue scenes feature excellent spacing between characters and an evident distance whether measured in feet or yards, the space between two close characters, or the length of a room or corridor. The image proves very shapely from the studio logos forward. It makes fine use of layers, with even Selene's stasis chamber showing obvious spacing between its clear cover and her face inches below. When a character falls into water, blood and bubbles rise as the character sinks further away from the screen. Distance shots spread far back into the depths of the television set, giving a nearly perfect illusion of three dimensional space. The transfer also does well to extend elements beyond the limits of the screen. Selene uses throwing weapons early in the film which appear to fly out past the front of the screen. Gun barrels poke out, and explosions send debris flying into the viewing area. Some viewers may note extremely light crosstalk. This is a fabulous 3D image that makes use of all elements. Depth, extension beyond the screen, strong detailing, and great black balance all add up to one of the best 3D transfers currently on the marketplace.


Underworld: Awakening 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Underworld: Awakening sounds fantastic. Sony's DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack ranks amongst the very best the format has to offer. This one impresses from the opening seconds on through to the closing credits. This presentation defines the modern cinema audio experience. It's big, aggressive, potent, and exceptionally immersive. Though it's loud and deep, clarity remains perfect throughout. Surround use is constant, heavy, and involved. The audience feels as if a part of every scene, immersed into every environment, caught in the middle of every battle. The track provides a nonstop barrage of perfectly-balanced surround sound activity. Whether mood- and location-critical light ambience, the pressurized sensation of underwater sound effects, music playing harmoniously with the rear channels, or high-powered action, the track proves to be one of the most immersive around. And for all the activity it offers, never does the track play as anything but perfectly balanced and absolutely lifelike. Gunfire erupts from each and every corner of the listening area. It tears through the stage as bullets zip and casings clank off the floor. Metal and flesh impacts, likewise, may be heard everywhere, and listeners might be inclined to duck for cover. The track also defines its locations with precision. A seaside port features seagulls maneuvering about, the steady sound of gently rolling waters, and boat horns in the distance. Musical balance is faultless, and instrument clarity is unbeatable. Dialogue is consistently strong and focused, playing firmly up the middle and never once sounding the least bit shallow or lost under the heavy effects and music. This track makes fine use of all of its attributes; the added surround channels help to create one of the most seamless and exciting soundtracks to date. This disc is worth a purchase if only as a top-notch audio demonstration piece.
