Wings of Life

 (2011)

Wings of Life Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Disneynature presents a close-up look at the unsung heroes of our planet. Wings Of Life reveals the intricate worlds of bees, butterflies, birds, and bats. Our life on Earth relies on these incredible creatures, as more than one-third of our world's food supply is dependent on them. Yet we are increasingly threatening their lives, and if they should suddenly disappear, we may too. Directed by Louie Schwartzberg, Wings Of Life takes us on an adventure to reveal this spectacular world that is right in front of us, yet rarely seen in such incredible detail.

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

Wings of Life Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Wings of Life is simply beautiful, and its 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer stands as one of the more impressive presentations of a high definition nature documentary to date. It isn't flawless -- a handful of establishing shots are prone to minor, presumably inherent noise, a handful more exhibit exceedingly slight banding, and a rendezvous between bats and cacti fruit is beset by negligible macroblocking in the gray night skies -- but it's about as perfect as "perfect" gets. The photography is awash with bold splashes of vibrant color, with rich, eye-popping primaries, lush earthtones, fiery reds and oranges, vivid blues and purples, and deep, enveloping blacks. The image almost has a 3D quality, thanks to exceptional depth, dimensionality, contrast and detail. Edges are razor sharp yet free of aliasing and significant ringing, and fine textures are wonderfully resolved. Whether it's the branched hairs of a bee, the delicate veins of a flower petal or the tiniest grains of pollen, Disney's precise and proficient encode does it justice, without exception. Videophiles, armchair naturalists and more casual viewers of all ages will be thoroughly taken with the presentation.


Wings of Life Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't make nearly as much of an impact as its video presentation, but then neither does the film's garden variety sound design. Narration is clean, clear and perfectly prioritized, no matter how subdued, restrained or hushed Streep's voice grows. Jan Holzner's score, meanwhile, dances in the background, ever present and harmless, almost to the point of being detached. In fact, everything about the mix seems to have been crafted to create a calm, serene soundscape without anything in the way of disruption or chaos, disruptive and chaotic as nature is. Still, the rear speakers wrap the experience round the listener like a warm, fuzzy blanket, and the LFE channel lends its support whenever called upon, even if that support is more akin to a soothing heartbeat than a pounding drum. The smallest insect creeks and chirps, the softest rustling of leaves and the most humble elements are represented without fail, and the entire mix sounds exactly as intended. The track isn't quite capable of sweeping anyone away to the film's far-flung forests and jungles on its own, but it certainly serves at the pleasure of the original photography and serves it well.
