The 1080p AVC picture is stellar looking, with absolute clarity throughout. The color palette is nicely saturated with pure hues that exhibit rich and warm tones. Contrast is superb with deep, solid blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Fleshtones are absolutely accurate throughout. Resolution is top-notch, with fine details revealed in facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture. This is an exceptionally natural and realistic picture, with impressive contrast and color fidelity. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 7.1-channel soundtrack is holosonically enveloping, with an aggressive directionalized surround presence. Atmospherics and sound effects are effectively delivered with directional placement. Action scenes with gunfire and explosions are enhanced with deep, sub-25 Hz bass in the .1 LFE channel. The music score is nicely recorded with a wide and deep soundstage that extends to the surround channels. The added two channels effectively enhance the spatial quality of the soundfield. Dialogue is intelligible and spatially integrated. This is an impressive sonic experience that is sure to please. (Gary Reber)
