The Collector (blu-ray review)

The Collector, from the writers of Saw IV, V, and VI, will be released on dvd and blu-ray on April 6th. After the jump you can read my review for the blu-ray.

I reviewed The Collector on dvd a few months ago, so this review is going to be short and sweet, as I am just going to talk about the picture and sound for this blu-ray release. To read my thoughts on the movie and special features you can click here.

The Collector comes to us from Vivendi in a standard blu-ray case. There is no insert and the chapter listing is the same as the dvd.

The Picture: The Collector comes to us in a good looking 1080p transfer with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1. This is a spiffy looking transfer. Since the movie takes place almost entirely at night, you would think that Vivendi would skimp on the transfer, but they haven't. Black levels are even and there is no "blocking". Skin tones look natural and the few daytime scenes look great.

The Sound: We are given an English 5.1 DTS-HD soundtrack. This movie relies a lot on sound and this soundtrack is somewhat up to the challenge. The surrounds don't get the work out that I though they would with this movie. I found the surrounds to be kinda lacking.

Overall: This blu-ray is an overall step up from the dvd. They both contain the same special features, but the picture and sound get the upgrade.
