Trespass Against Us is set across three generations of the Cutler family, who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of a rich countryside. Chad Cutler (Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving, and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson (Georgie Smith) coming of age, Chad soon finds himself locked in battle with his father for the future of his young family. When Colby learns of Chad’s dreams for another life, he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations. He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase, and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the featurettes Blood Bonds: On The Set (HD 21:54) and Heartfelt: Director Adam Smith On The Chemical Brothers (HD 04:47), upfront previews, and an UltraViolet digital copy.

The 2.40:1 1080p AVC picture was photographed on Kodak Vision3 film stock. The imagery is impressively natural and realistic in appearance. The color palette is perfectly natural, with pleasingly accurate hues and fleshtones. The rural flavor depicts a gritty setting, yet the picture is often bright as well as dark. Contrast is quite good, with deep blacks and realistic shadow delineation. Resolution is well defined, especially during the brighter scenes. Fine facial features, body dirt, hair, and object textures are nicely defined. This is a picture that effectively projects naturalness throughout, with a warmly dense cinematic feel. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is a wild ride, with a dynamic presence delivered through intense atmospheric sound effects and the music score. The music score occupies a wide and deep soundstage and an aggressive directionalized surround field. Car chases are enhanced with deep bass .1 LFE energy, which sounds impressively realistic. Dialogue is a bit challenging to understand with the heavy English dialect, but overall spatial integration is decent. This is a tense, often holosonic® soundtrack with engaging music and dramatic atmospheric sound effects. (Gary Reber)
