In Reclaim, when the newly adopted daughter of American couple Steven (Phillippe) and Shannon (Lefevre) goes missing while the family is abroad, they quickly discover that all is not what it seems with the adoption agency––and find themselves in a fight for their lives when they encounter Benjamin (Cusack) and Reigert (Weaver), the culprits behind a high-stakes human-trafficking ring. To expose the truth and save their daughter, Steven and Shannon will have to risk everything…including their lives.

Special features include commentary with Director Alan White, a behind-the-scenes featurette (HD 17:11), cast and crew interviews (HD 14:24), eight deleted/extended scenes (HD 08:14), “Fighting The World” music video (HD 03:23), the theatrical trailer, upfront previews, and an UltraViolet digital copy.

The 1.85:1 1080p AVC picture is nicely photographed digitally. Natural looking throughout, the color pallet is rich and well balanced with earth tones perfectly depicted in the Puerto Rico environment. Contrast is well balanced with deep blacks and revealing shadow delineation. Fleshtones are naturally hued throughout. Resolution is generally quite good, especially during close-ups of facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture. This is a colorful, picturesque picture with dynamic contrasts that enhance the tensional story.

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dynamic sounding, with a strong deep bass .1 LFE presence that provides substantial foundation to the orchestral music score. The music permeates most scenes with a wide and deep soundstage that extends aggressively to the surrounds. Atmospherics and sound effects are effectively rendered with spurts of aggressive directionality. Dialogue is intelligible but at times wanting in spatial integration. The surrounds are often aggressively immersive, which enhances the sense of a holistic® soundfield. Overall, this is a nicely crafted soundtrack that builds as the story progresses.
