xXx

 (2002)

xXx Blu-ray features poor video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

From Revolution Studios and and Sony Pictures, Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) is a notorious underground thrill-seeker who, until now, has been deemed untouchable by the law. But when crack NSA Agent Gibbsons convinces Cage to infiltrate a ruthless Russian crime ring, this new breed of secret agent (codename: XXX) takes down the enemies of justice with a vengeance in this high-octane, turbo-charged thrill-ride from the acclaimed director of The Fast and the Furious.

For more about xXx and the xXx Blu-ray release, see xXx Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Vin Diesel, Asia Argento, Marton Csokas, Samuel L. Jackson, Danny Trejo, Richy Müller

xXx Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

One of the first titles released on Blu-ray, xXx's 2.40:1, 1080p high definition transfer is a mess. This is without a doubt the most disappointed I've been with a Blu-ray so far. As such an early release, no doubt part of the problem can be attributed to growing pains, but I nevertheless expected a better looking transfer than this. The opening segment of the movie just looks bad. There's really no other way of describing it. Black levels are terrible, any segment of the picture that should be dark is far too bright, fine detail is absent, and every edge is soft and lacks definition. The transfer cleans up somewhat after this awful introduction to the film, but the same problems remain, just on a smaller scale. Detail and sharpness are disappointing in many shots. Long-distance shots fare poorly. Trees, for example, look like a glob of a green-colored mass smeared onto the film. Façades and distance shots of buildings lack texture and detail, looking flat and dull instead. Blacks remain disappointing, although sometimes they rise to the level of respectable, such as during a nighttime battle in chapter four. Although mostly flat, the image does at times have a fair amount of three-dimensionality, but these instances are too few and far between to really count for much. A few scenes, notably those that are very brightly lit, such as a sequence on a snowy mountainside near the end of the move, look alright, about what we would expect from an average high-definition image. There is a bit of shimmering in some scenes as the image becomes brighter and darker from one frame to the next. Flesh tones fare rather well, never appearing overly red. There is no doubt that this is one of the lesser Blu-ray offerings to date. To this disc's credit, I skipped around on the DVD version I own and every scene, especially the film's opening, looks equally bad (or worse) on that disc. Still, the Blu-ray is only slightly better, just a bit sharper and cleaner with better color reproduction, but not much more in the way of detail. I expected much better, but chock this one up to the growing pains of a new format that less than two years after its launch is producing truly breathtaking imagery that puts anything I've ever seen at home to shame. Hopefully this movie will be re-released in the future and if the video quality is markedly improved, I'll be first in line to buy it.


xXx Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Even though the picture quality was substandard, the PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack that accompanies xXx is anything but. This loud and entertaining track is awesome, guaranteed to make you jump out of your seat on a few occasions. The uncompressed mix is decidedly superior to the Dolby Digital mixes on both the Blu-ray and the DVD, coming off as louder and much more defined. The heavy metal tune "Feuer Frei" heard at the beginning of the movie courtesy of the band Rammstein attacks the listener through every speaker. The scene is an awesome sonic experience, and even as someone who doesn't generally enjoy this kind of music, I found myself feeling the urge to head bang, so loud and crystal-clear was it that I felt like part of the crowd and lost in the moment. Bass is punchy and loud through the entire movie, and every action scene is first-rate. Directionality is excellent. Sounds pan seamlessly form one speaker to the next, and are always in just the right spot in relation to the action on the screen. Jets scream from the front to the rear, bullets come at you from all directions, and the music finds its way into every corner of the listening area. An avalanche in chapter 12 offers some of the deepest, foundation-rattling, headache-inducing bass yet. When the scene was over and the room briefly quiet again, all the neighborhood dogs were barking and my cats had scurried out of the media room, and I'm frankly surprised my ears weren't bleeding. Dialogue reproduction is perfect. This is a first-rate track, and the sins of the video are almost forgotten and forgiven by the wonderful action experience that listening to xXx on Blu-ray is.
