The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture was digitally photographed with the Alexa camera system. The imagery is gorgeously rendered with wonderfully rich and warm colors evident in period costumes and natural earthy landscapes. Earthy forest greens, brownish tree trunks and branches, and woodland accents are realistic. Brick facades are richly hued. The color palette is stylized with a cream-hued tint, to convey a distant period, yet strong primaries pop. Fleshtones of the living are perfectly natural in appearance. Of course, the undead do fare as well. Contrast is excellent, with deep blacks and revealing shadow delineation, even in candle-lit interiors. Resolution is also excellent with fine detail evident in weathered, mature faces and young facial features, hair, fine fabrics, and object textures such as book covers, brick facades, wooden trim, and guns and swords and knives. This is a fantastic visual experience with superb color rendering, deep blacks, and fine detail throughout. The imagery is reference quality. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dynamic and aggressively holosonic® sounding. Atmospherics, Foley, and sound effects are quite vivid, with robust sounds of gunfire and hand combat with swords and knives enhanced with varying degrees of .1 LFE energy. Such elements are often panned and extend aggressively to the surrounds. More subtle sonics, such as flies buzzing around an interior in search of a zombie, is well executed. Gunfire often rings out with excellent weight and reverberation. Battles are intense sonically and effectively create a sense of chaos. Dialogue is heavily ADR but generally well integrated spatially, even eerie zombie screeches. The orchestral music score is nicely recorded with a wide and deep soundstage that extends effectively to the surrounds, especially during the energized action scenes. This is a well-produced soundtrack with plenty of exciting dynamics and sound effects that deliver an engaging experience. (Gary Reber)
