Hellboy (Blu-ray version)...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hellboy [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Writer and director Guillermo de Toro 2004 production brings to the big screen the comic book character "Hellboy" based on the Dark Horse comic series by Mike Mignola.
This film which was released on Blu-ray in 2007 on a region free 50GB disc which has been encoded using MPEG-4 codec in full 1080p resolution in the original cinema aspect ratio of 1.85, comparing the region 1 DVD version of this movie I had against this UK released Blu-ray, the HD transfer shows it has a greater colour palette than the DVD this release also has a better range of hues and blacks which are deeper and of greater variation.
The real star of this release is the uncompressed PCM 5.1 audio which when played against Dolby Digital 5.1 version, the PCM soundtrack brings the whole audio playback to life with better all round sound performance, with easier to understand dialogue, a wider soundstage to the music and the bigger sound to the gunfire, hand to hand combat and speaker shaking explosions have an even more satisfying bass sound.
There are also audio tracks on this disc in Spanish PCM 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1.
There are also subtitles for the hard of hearing in English, Hindi and Spanish, there is also a director's commentary and the special features are in standard definition and follow the same contents as the double DVD released earlier a great addition to any action fan's Blu-ray collection.
