One Shot appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.00:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. Shot looked the way I expected.
While most of the movie presented nice clarity, some interior shots looked a bit tentative, but only a tad. That meant the majority of the flick appeared solid.
No signs of moiré effects or jaggies occurred. The movie also lacked edge haloes or print flaws.
In terms of palette, Shot favored a strong sense of teal, with a bit of amber as well. Those choices came as no surprise, and the Blu-ray reproduced them in a satisfactory manner.
Blacks showed strong depth, and shadows were good, with nice opacity and clarity. All of this was enough for a “B+” that lost points solely due to the occasional slightly soft shots.
I felt consistently pleased with the immersive DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack of One Shot, as the soundscape offered frequent room for information to emanate from the various speakers.
The mix used those chances well. The soundtrack delivered auditory material that spread out across the speakers in a satisfying manner and that blended together nicely.
This meant an active track in which the surrounds kept the mix humming. Plenty of action moments made this an impressive soundfield that also brought out environmental elements nicely.
Audio quality satisfied, as speech was natural and concise. Effects turned into the primary factor, and those elements appeared accurate and vivid.
Music played something of a background role, but the score came across as intended. Expect a strong sonic experience here.
We get two featurettes on the disc, and The Making of a Movie In One Shot spans seven minutes, nine seconds. It provides info from writer/director James Nunn and actors Scott Adkins, Terence Maynard, Ashley Greene Khoury, Jess Liaudin, Lee Charles, Ryan Phillippe, and Waleed Elgadi.
“Shot” gives us notes about the ways the movie pulled off the “one take” concept as well as some other production notes. It leans toward praise too much of the time but it gives us a few insights.
Go Behind the Scenes spans two minutes, 24 seconds and brings info from Khoury, Elgadi, Liaudin, Adkins, Nunn, Phillippe, and Charles. They give us fluffy comments in this superfluous reel.
The disc opens with ads for Till Death, The Outpost and Trigger Point. No trailer for One Shot appears here.
A cinematic gimmick separates One Shot from its genre peers, as it attempts to convince us all its action occurs in a single unedited take. While the film pulls off this magic trick well, the story itself feels predictable and fails to bring anything new to the table. The Blu-ray brings very good picture and audio but includes minor supplements. I’ve seen worse military action flicks, but One Shot nonetheless doesn’t turn into anything especially compelling.
