Angel of Mine appears in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The film boasted fine visuals.
Sharpness worked well. While the occasional wide shot betrayed a sliver of softness, the majority of material appeared accurate and concise.
No issues with moiré effects or jaggies occurred, and I saw neither edge haloes nor source flaws.
The movie favored a standard teal/amber palette. Within the stylistic constraints, the Blu-ray reproduced the colors in a favorable manner.
Blacks came across as deep and dense, while shadows appeared smooth and well-developed. The movie offered pleasing picture quality.
Also good, the movie’s DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio also satisfied. Music showed nice stereo presence, while effects added immersive material.
The occasional “action” sequences boasted fine use of the side and rear speakers, all of which brought us into the story well. Much of the film opted for general atmosphere, and those moments provided nice immersion.
Audio quality seemed strong. Music was full and rich, while dialogue seemed natural and distinctive.
Making Angel of Mine runs nine minutes, 38 seconds. It offers comments from director Kim Farrant, producers Su Armstrong, Josh Etting and Brian Etting, and actors Noomi Rapace, Yvonne Strahalski, Luke Evans, Richard Roxburgh and Annika Whiteley.
As expected, “Making” looks at story/characters, cast and performances, and Farrant’s impact on the production. This becomes a pretty standard promo piece.
Under Cast/Crew Interviews, we get individual segments with Farrant (10:45), Rapace (4:21), Strahalski (4:35), Evans (3:24), Roxburgh (3:48) and Whiteley (2:40).
Taken from the same sessions used for “Making”, we often get literally the same soundbites here. Because the “Interviews” cover the same territory, I’d recommend you simply skip “Making” and watch the “Interviews” instead, even though they don’t muster a great deal of substance either.
The disc opens with ads for Inconceivable, The Poison Rose, Matriarch and Unlocked. We also get the trailer for Angel.
At its core, Angel of Mine offers potential to become a good twist on the standard genre thriller. Unfortunately, it tends to bore too much of the time until it gets to its literally unbelievable conclusion. The Blu-ray boasts very good picture with positive audio and minor bonus materials. Angel lacks dimensionality or conviction.
