Wing Commander Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.5 of 5

Dull. Dreary. Dare say it, ugly. Wing Commander wasn't made with vibrance in mind, that much is clear, but Anchor Bay's presentation of a 20th Century Fox catalogue title really pushes the limits for somber, unremarkable imagery. The film begins with an opening title sequence that's so soft and so bland that it nearly looks like it was sourced from a VHS recording. Unfortunately, the improvement from there forward is marginal. While there's decent enough clarity, the overwhelmingly dark photography, the muted colors, and the lackluster Blu-ray presentation don't help to improve the image beyond what one would expect to see on a lower end DVD. Details are pasty and smoothed over. There's nothing that screams "high definition." Some shots are hazy, others overwhelming soft and blurry. At its best, the image is stably bland. The visual effects are particularly awful, but the live action footage just screams "flat." Basic skin textures and the red uniforms are about the limits of any sort of bright coloring, and even those appear remarkably uninspired. Black levels are a little noisy and pale, and the image suffers from the occasional speckle and stray pop. It's incredible that a moderately high profile movie looks this tired.


Wing Commander Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Wing Commander's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack doesn't fare very well, either. The best part of the track is its ambience, the light background radio chatter and computer beeps that are heard in some of the more expansive command centers. Otherwise, it's awfully bland. Music delivery lacks vigor and heft, though front spacing is adequate and surround support is a little more than cursory. Clarity could certainly use a major boost. There's a sloppy, muddled sound to the action, particularly whirring star fighters. Even the heaviest sound effects, such as ships "jumping," lack energy and enthusiasm. Dialogue isn't always firm; it sometimes struggles to command the center channel and play with natural pitch and clarity. No subtitle options are included.
