White Chamber appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.39:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The image seemed good but not great.
General definition worked fine. The image rarely showed terrific delineation but it didnít suffer from substantial softness, either.
No issues with jagged edges or shimmering occurred, and I witnessed no edge haloes. Print flaws also remained absent.
Colors tended toward the bland side of the street, as teal and whites dominated. These choices suited the project but they still seemed lackluster.
Blacks seemed fairly deep and dense, while low-light shots presented reasonable clarity. Nothing here excelled but the image was more than watchable.
Donít expect a lot from the low-key DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack of Chamber, as it offered a restricted affair. The soundscape lacked much room for pizzazz, as outside of a few brief war-related elements, the mix stayed ambient in nature.
This meant the movieís score used the five channels in a decent manner, as the moody music spanned around the room. Effects mostly focused on a rumbling hum, so beyond those rare war segments, the soundfield didnít do much.
Audio quality worked fine, as speech appeared natural and concise. Music lacked much range but the score seemed smooth and well-rendered within its scope.
As noted, effects failed to do much here, but they remained accurate within their low-key boundaries. This became a passable mix for a movie without strong auditory demands.
The disc opens with ads for Level 16, Mega Time Squad, Await Further Instructions and The Dark. We also find the trailer for Chamber but no other extras appear.
Based on its cat-and-mouse concept, White Chamber offers the potential to become a lively psychological thriller. Unfortunately, it suffers from flawed execution and iffy acting. The Blu-ray brings generally positive picture and audio but it lacks supplements. The film ends up as a forgettable banality.
