White Squall Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

White Squall's 1080p Blu-ray transfer looks nice, but it's not without faults, and one major fault in particular. To be sure, Mill Creek's image offers up some good, steady details. Seafaring attire -- caps, polo shirts, shorts -- are presented with nice attention to detail, allowing viewers to see seams and stitches and fabric textures with regularity. Additionally, some of the ropes and shiny yet worn wooden textures around the boat offer up a steady diet of nicely replicated details that give the vessel a life and texture all its own. But there's evidence of a smoothing process. The image appears glossy and unnaturally smooth, appearing as if anything other than film. Grain is usually missing in action, visible only in select shots. The noise reduction and smoothing effect doesn't ruin the transfer -- it's still pleasantly watchable -- but it certainly takes the life out of it. Fortunately, the color palette is steady, capturing any number of shades, from bright clothes to natural island landscapes, with ease and efficiency. Banding and print wear are marginal concerns at best, but blacks never quite find a natural appearance. Still, the image as-a-whole isn't terrible. However, the absence of a more film-like texture is disappointing, particularly considering Mill Creek's inclusion of a 5.1-channel lossless soundtrack.


White Squall Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Indeed, White Squall arrives on Blu-ray with a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, not the two-channel (lossless or otherwise) presentation the studio usually releases. While this one isn't a showstopper, the presentation is quite involved and satisfying. Music plays with a cool, smooth, steady cadence. It offers nice spacing and a quality low end feel that gives it a sense of completion and a good, positive cinematic flair, whether score or a more involved party scene as heard in chapter three. Atmospherics are consistently impressive. Mill Creek's soundtrack practically places listeners on the boat, recreating various rattles and creaks and moans and the sound of gently rolling waters with pinpoint accuracy and placement. Heavier waves and blowing winds can sound muffled and drag down what is otherwise smooth and center-focused dialogue. The track is largely defined by the chaos that ensnares the ship near the end of the film. Waves crash, people scream, water drenches, and objects break all around the listening area, creating a frenzied and frightening symphony of liquid terror. The track satisfies in all areas and this sort of track is necessary in truly enjoying White Squall to its fullest. Kudos to Mill Creek for stepping up and delivering the right track for the right movie.
