Won't Back Down Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

At first, I couldn't figure why Won't Back Down's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer was so dreary. For the first act, the film's color grading is nearly post-apocalyptic, gray-toned with sucked out color and crushed shadows. But then, as Jamie and Nona make headway in their fight against the system, life is breathed back into the palette until it nearly glows with cheery hues and warm highlights. It's not exactly subtle, thematically, and it's arguably a little too stylized, but it works, I guess. The rest of the transfer does too. Shot on 35mm, the film retains its natural—if a bit chunky—grain structure here, with no evidence of digital noise reduction or overt edge enhancement. The thickness of the grain does cut into overall clarity somewhat, but the image is still plenty sharp, with fine facial and clothing detail that's easily visible in closeups, even from a distance. I didn't spot any obvious compression or encode issues, and it looks to me like the film's Blu-ray presentation is faithful to both the source materials and the filmmakers' stylistic intentions. No real problems here.


Won't Back Down Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Won't Back Down features 20th Century Fox's usual lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which more than sufficiently handles the film's limited sonic demands. As an inspirational drama, dialogue is the priority here, and it's always presented cleanly and clearly, balanced with ease at the top of the mix. Below the voices, you'll usually hear some quiet and not particularly involving ambience in the rear speakers, from blowing wind and pouring rain and other outdoor noises, to classroom chatter, clapping, and hallway sounds. Overtly directional effects are limited, but the film doesn't really need any. This ain't The Expendables 2. Swelling up through and around the ambience is Marcelo Zarvos' lifting score, which uses orchestra-backed piano to set the mood for each scene. Overall, the mix is sharp, dynamic, and tidy, without calling much attention to itself. The disc includes optional Spanish and French dubs and subtitles, English SDH subtitles, and a descriptive audio track.
