Valhalla Rising

 (2009)

Valhalla Rising Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

1000 AD, for years, One Eye, a mute warrior of supernatural strength, has been held prisoner by the Norse chieftain Barde. Aided by Are, a boy slave, One Eye slays his captor and together he and Are escape, beginning a journey into the heart of darkness. On their flight, One Eye and Are board a Viking vessel, but the ship is soon engulfed by an endless fog that clears only as the crew sights an unknown land. As the new world reveals its secrets and the Vikings confront their terrible and bloody fate, One Eye discovers his true self.

Valhalla Rising Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Nicolas Winding Refn's Valhalla Rising arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Momentum Pictures.

This is a good but somewhat inconsistent high-definition transfer. Generally speaking, the outdoor scenes look very strong. When the warriors arrive at what they believe is the Promised Land, there are some unbelievably beautiful shots. Here, fine object detail is pleasing and clarity excellent. Earlier in the film, however, I noticed some mild background flicker, as well as soft halo effects. Mild edge-enhancement also pops up here and there. However, because of the unique use of light and color in the film (Refn shot it with the Red One camera), many of these issues are quite difficult to spot. This said, blown through a digital projector, the high-definition transfer conveys wonderful depth and vibrancy. There are no stability issues to report either. All in all, there is certainly some room for improvement with this high-definition transfer, but Valhalla Rising still looks very strong. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Valhalla Rising Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English (Descriptive Audio) 2.0. For the record, Momentum Pictures have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is very strong. In fact, I would argue that it is one of the key reasons why Valhalla Rising will stay with you for days after you see it. To be clear, the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track would not test the muscles of your audio system, but the intense atmosphere it maintains - enhancing the variety of ambient effects used in the film - is indeed quite remarkable. Furthermore, the dialog is crisp, clean and exceptionally easy to follow. While viewing the film, I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.
