Underworld: Rise of the Lycans Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony has given Rise of the Lycans the same high-quality, high definition treatment it afforded the first two entries in the Underworld series. Blessed with a sharp and stunning 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, the film looks nothing short of amazing. The heavily-processed image is intentionally slathered with searing blues and oppressive shadows, but the at-times monochromatic palette rarely obscures fine detail. Objects have been naturally rendered without the assistance of any glaring edge enhancement, textures are refined and exceedingly revealing, and delineation is impressive (particularly considering the abundance of pitch-black expanses that litter the presentation). More importantly, the picture itself isn't disrupted by a single, significant technical anomaly -- aside from some intentional crushing, I didn't detect any errant artifacting, troubling source noise, or bothersome banding. While a filmic veneer of grain does pepper the proceedings, it remains steady from the opening titles to the closing credits. Best of all, crisp and consistent contrast leveling injects an enviable amount of depth and dimensionality into each frame. The stylized nature of the film prevents the transfer from achieving Blu-ray's oh-so-hallowed "picture window" effect, but it comes pretty close. My final verdict? The Blu-ray edition of Rise of the Lycans lines up perfectly with its series predecessors and will give fans plenty to rave about when it hits store shelves.


Underworld: Rise of the Lycans Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Rounding out the disc's AV one-two punch, Rise of the Lycans also boasts a looming, booming Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track that will bring the film's climactic clashes thundering into your living room. While it's by no means as aggressive or as unrelenting as the PCM mixes that accompany Underworld and Underworld: Evolution (Lycans is, after all, a quieter film), it still delivers the sonic goods anytime it's called upon. Dialogue is impeccable, intelligible, and perfectly prioritized amidst the at-times chaotic soundscape. Low-frequency extension is robust and powerful -- an early encounter between Lucian and a band of werewolf raiders, a dangerous jailbreak, and a third act castle siege are demo-worthy scenes -- while active rear speaker support envelops the listener with convincing acoustics, persistent ambience, and a number of head-swiveling illusions. Better still, pans effortlessly whisk by and directionality is spot on, proving that the film's sound designers weren't interested in using lazy tricks to artificially enhance the track's immersive properties. Once again, Sony demonstrates its ability to capture the essence of a theatrical presentation and transplant it to a consumer's home theater.
