The understated colors of the MPEG-2-encoded 2.35:1 Blu-ray Disc picture can make the imagery look dark and cheerless, matching the storytelling well. Some colors can be vibrant, but they are generally muted to better reflect the story. Images are generally well detailed, although it is not at the level of the best high-definition releases. How much of this can be attributed to the Samsung BD-P1000 player is unknown at this time. (Danny Richelieu)
The uncompressed linear PCM 5.1-channel soundtrack only provides a slight improvement over the Dolby® Digital encoding that is also included on the disc. Deep bass is slightly tighter with the PCM encoding, but there is not much else that has been improved. (Danny Richelieu)
