Killing Gunther appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 1.85:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The image looked pretty positive.
Sharpness seemed good. Only a little softness appeared in some wide shots, but the movie usually appeared tight and concise.
Jagged edges and shimmering didn’t cause distractions, and edge enhancement seemed to be absent. Source flaws also failed to pop up in this clean transfer.
Orange and teal? Orange and teal! Some other hues crept in as well, but the majority of the tale opted for those tones. As tedious as that was, the colors seemed accurately reproduced within the stylistic choices.
Blacks came across as dark and dense, while shadows were positive. Overall, this became a fine presentation.
Also impressive, the DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack of Killing proved to be involving. The movie offered good general atmosphere through the whole tale, and it kicked into higher gear well when necessary.
“When necessary” cropped up frequently, as the film’s action scenes added a nice punch. These boasted good information from all the channels, and the material blended smoothly. These factors allowed the flick to create a vivid, involving soundscape.
Audio quality satisfied. Speech sounded crisp and concise; the lines lacked edginess and seemed well-reproduced. Music showed nice range, as the score was consistently full and rich.
Effects also conveyed good accuracy and punch. With a mix of action sequences, the track came with a variety of chances to shine, and it did. Low-end response seemed tight and warm throughout the film. This was an immersive mix.
Two Deleted Scenes appear: “Overly Protective Father” (1:23) and “Hitbook: The Official Hitman’s Social Networking Site” (0:48). The first shows a little more of Sanaa’s father, while the second depicts another attempt to find Gunther. Neither offers much value.
A reel of Bloopers goes for five minutes, 49 seconds. Expect the usual goofs and giggles without much else of use.
The disc opens with ads for Gun Shy, War On Everyone, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Skiptrace and The Trust. No trailer for Killing appears here.
A limp attempt at a “mockumentary”, Killing Gunther delivers a virtually laugh-free experience. Though it never becomes painful to watch, it lacks wit or entertainment value. The Blu-ray boasts very good picture and audio but lacks substantial supplements. I can’t recommend this tedious attempt at comedy.
