Year One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Year One traverses onto Blu-ray with a high quality 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Though flesh tones take on a decidedly red tint in many scenes, the transfer serves up a nice array of high quality imagery that borders on the extraordinary in several scenes. Year One doesn't feature abundant grain; in fact, it's hard to spot it, but in true Sony fashion, there's no evidence of digital manipulation. Year One takes on a nice film-like appearance and sports generally excellent detail, particularly in bright outdoor scenes. The individual needles on evergreen trees, tall wavy grass, and animal fur all appear nicely defined. Close-up shots of a cage made of tree branches and rope deliver borderline startling levels of detail; viewers will see each imperfection and line in the wood, and every loose strand on the rope. There's not much color in the film; clothes are of a mostly neutral shade -- browns and tans -- and blend in with the similarly-colored terrain. A few splashes of color do manage to impress, including Abraham's blue and yellow robe and several more ornate garments and decorations found in the film's final act. Black levels are fairly good throughout, and on the whole, Year One delivers an impressive 1080p image.


Year One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Year One makes for something of a departure from Sony, the studio eschewing their normal Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack in favor of the fan-favorite DTS-HD MA 5.1 encode. Unfortunately, Year One is the sort of title that doesn't really lend itself well to demo material. This is a routine Comedy mix, with most of its sound effects placed directly up the middle and occasionally spread out from side to side. Some tribal beats as heard in chapter three deliver a fair bit of power from the low end, but it never even threatens to rattle the chest cavity. A clap of thunder in chapter six is probably the highlight of the film. Booming loudly and reverberating throughout the entire soundstage, it offers a clear, powerful, and lifelike moment in an otherwise dull soundtrack. The other standout moment comes in the form of a crash near the end of the film that also features a hearty thud and a nice, albeit fleeting, rear-channel presence in support. Also featuring flawless dialogue reproduction, Year One sounds as good as its limited source material allows.
