The 1080p AVC picture was photographed digitally with the Red Epic camera system. The imagery is darkly cast with a rough texture throughout. The entire movie takes place in a BMW with Tom Hardy driving. There is not much in terms of visuals, which are confined to the driver's interior, nighttime instrument lights, and passing vehicles in the lanes adjacent. Blacks are often crushed and shadow delineation is poor. Splashes of color are evident with traffic lights, brake lights, and turn signals, but otherwise the palette is limited. Resolution is decent but not particularly distinguished. (Gary Reber)
The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is primarily monaural focused. Dialogue sounds a bit muted, as the conversations are through the car's phone system. Atmospherics consist of road and passing vehicle sounds. As for surround engagement, the music score provides a sense of immersion, but otherwise the focus is monaural. (Gary Reber)
