2067 appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 1.85:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The image worked well.
Sharpness appeared strong. Only minor softness appeared, so the movie usually remained tight and concise. I saw no signs of shimmering or jaggies, and print flaws remained absent.
In terms of palette, 2067 tended toward bold reds and purples in the “2067” scenes, whereas they went for a more green/amber feel in the “future” moments. These hues showed good representation within stylistic constraints.
Blacks were dark and tight, and shadows seemed smooth. The movie consistently looked solid.
In addition, the film’s DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack became an engulfing mix. The movie came with instances of dynamic information, mainly during action-oriented sequences, and those popped to life in an exciting fashion.
Much of the flick went with more ambient audio, and those segments succeeded as well. These contributed a good sense of atmosphere and formed an involving sensibility throughout the film, factors that made this a pleasing mix.
Audio quality seemed solid. Music was bold and full, and effects followed suit, as those elements appeared accurate and dynamic, with deep, tight bass.
Speech remained natural and without edginess or concerns. Though not totally action-packed, this became a broad, involving track.
In terms of extras, the main attraction comes from an audio commentary from writer/director Seth Larney and producer Lisa Shaunessy. They deliver a running, screen-specific discussion of story and characters, cast and performances, music, sets and locations, and related domains.
Larney and Shaunessy present a moderately engaging but not wholly satisfying track. Though they touch on some production choices, they often do little more than simply narrate the movie. This turns into a decent piece but not one with as much informational value as I’d hope.
Under Behind the Scenes of 2067, we get eight featurettes. These encompass “The Story” (3:39), “The Cast” (7:39), “The Director” (6:19), “The Look” (6:32), “The Costumes & Makeup” (3:30), “The Time Machine” (4:10), “The Editing & VFX” (4:24), and “The Music” (14:12).
Across these, we hear from Larney, Shaunessy, editor Sean Lahiff, production designer Jacinta Leong, composer Keith Lampl, director of photography Earle Dresner, costume designer Oriana Merullo, hair and makeup designer Rebecca Buratto, and actors Aaron Lehane, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ryan Kwanten, Sana’a Shaik, Leeanna Walsman, Finn Little, Damian Walsh-Howling, and Deborah Mailman.
“Scenes” examines story/characters/themes, cast and performances, Larney’s impact on the shoot, photography, costumes, hair and makeup, production design, editing, various effects, and score.
The first three featurettes tend to feel fluffy and superficial, but matters improve with “The Look” and continue to offer value after that. Though we still get some happy talk, the programs become more insightful. Feel free to skip “Story”, “Cast” and “Director” but watch the other five.
The disc opens with ads for Color Out of Space, The Osiris Child, and I Kill Giants. No trailer for 2067 appears here.
As it tells a story of global apocalypse on a human level, 2067 offers the potential for a powerful sci-fi journey. However, the end result lacks coherence and fails to find the drama at its core. The Blu-ray brings very good picture and audio along with a few bonus features. 2067 occasionally shows glimmers, but the final product underwhelms.
