Vehicle 19

 (2013)

Vehicle 19 Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Recently paroled Michael Woods (Paul Walker) just wants to get his life in order. But when he discovers a gun, a cell phone, and an unconscious woman in the trunk of a rental car, he fears he's in for the ride of his life. Michael has some serious decisions to make-either keep his head down and hope to escape with his life, or risk it all to do the right thing.

For more about Vehicle 19 and the Vehicle 19 Blu-ray release, see Vehicle 19 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Director: Mukunda Michael Dewil
Writer: Mukunda Michael Dewil

Vehicle 19 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

An initial issue is the film's aspect ratio. When my colleague Brian Orndorf reviewed Vehicle 19 theatrically, he logged the ratio at 2.39:1, and indeed the publicity stills provided to reviewers reflect that AR. However, the technical specifications supplied to IMDb (which, as we all know, is not infallible) state that the film is 1.85:1. The image on the disc is framed at 1.78:1, and it did not strike me as unnaturally cramped or cropped. Then again, given the inherently claustrophobic feel of the photography and the small cast, cropping wouldn't be as obvious on Vehicle 19 as on most other films. It's also possible that the image was "opened up" for video, as has been the case with several films. Lacking a definitive answer, all I can do is report what the various sources say and describe what's on the disc. If I receive additional relevant information, I will update the review.

After spending so much time lately with digitally acquired projects, it was a pleasure to watch something shot on film, in this case by South African cinematographer Miles Goodall, who handled the location second unit for Mira Nair's Amelia. Goodall had to create special camera rigs for some of the unusual interior point-of-view shots required by Vehicle 19, and he must have had some interesting challenges with lens selection and focus, given the limitations for framing shots. A digital intermediate provided a safety net for adjusting shadows and fixing mistakes.

The image on Ketchup Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray was presumably sourced from digital files, but it still has the almost indefinable sense of texture that one associates with film-originated projects. (Too many DI-finished films have most of the texture scrubbed away.) That tactile sense contributes greatly to Michael's perception of being a foreigner in an unfamiliar world; indeed, some of the early shots from the driver's seat could have come from a documentary. The image often has strong contrasts under the bright South African sun, but not at the expense of detail, and in the occasional dark interior (notably a parking garage), the blacks are accurate and the shadow detail still discernible. Colors tend to be somewhat overpowered by the brightness of the sun, but occasional vivid hues stand out (e.g., the red paint that gets slapped on the minivan at one point). A noticeable grain structure remains, but it is extremely fine. Certainly there is no indication of filtering or artificial sharpening, and with an average bitrate in excess of 26 Mbps, compression errors were not an issue.


Vehicle 19 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Vehicle 19's audio mix, presented here in lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, is distinctive, because everything is heard from inside the minivan. A collision in the opening sequence, with what appears to be a homeless man's shopping cart filled with bric-a-brac, sets the pattern. The metallic clank and clatter hits sharply to the left and side—and then it's quickly gone, left in the minivan's wake. The sound mixers have obviously taken great care to match sounds outside the van to the camera's point of view and the appropriate speed and direction of the vehicle, and the illusion is effective. Michael's and, for the duration of her stay, Rachel's dialogue is clearly rendered, as are the various voices at the other end of cell phone calls. The tense thriller score is credited to Daniel Matthee and James Matthes, but the dynamic pulse of the soundtrack comes from South African rap groups Die Antwoor and Teargas.
