Water for Elephants Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Whatever Water for Elephants's failings are as a drama, there's very little to complain about with regard to the gorgeous imagery presented on this AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Director Francis Lawrence and cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto bathe this film in the amber glow of memory, infusing shot after shot with a golden hued ambience that is really beautifully presented in high definition. Fine detail is outstanding throughout the film and in fact some may be slightly astounded at the level of detail in some of the close-ups featuring Tai (the elephant portraying Rosie). The film is not overly grainy (perhaps having been scrubbed slightly at the DI stage) but still retains a very filmic appearance. The CGI elements are remarkably well done and look fantastic (take a look at the Visual Effects featurette mentioned in the Supplements section of the review to see just how seamlessly and artfully they've been blended into the film's practical elements). There is some very moderate crush in a couple of dark scenes, but otherwise this is a solid, just downright pretty looking film that manages to provide some allure on the visual side of things that the film itself is noticeably lacking in other ways.


Water for Elephants Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Water for Elephants' lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is extremely well rendered on this Blu-ray, with some very nicely done surround content, especially with regard to some of the circus scenes. Crowd noises, the roars and grunts of the animals, and just the general hubbub of the acts and the audience all create a very lifelike and enjoyably immersive experience. But the track is filled with a number of other great effects, including everything from nice panning when the circus train chugs across the frame to quieter dialogue moments, which still retain a vibrancy and immediacy within much reduced volume. James Newton Howard's score is quite enjoyable, if a bit treacly at times (that slow motion dance between Witherspoon and Pattinson accompanied by piano and strings could have come right out of West Side Story's iconic meeting between Tony and Maria). Dynamic range is superb on this track, fidelity is strong and the riotous conclusion featuring some errant animals provides some great, raucous LFE.
