Top positive review
Excellent packaging, disappointing picture quality but overall satisfied.
4 December 2017
As far as the film is concerned, I'll rate it 9.5/10.
I had already seen it in theatre last year and was impressed. But as far as the DVD is concerned, I'm pretty disappointed with the picture quality.
The frames are full of line-grids (I don't even have a proper word to describe the thing, hope you understand.) which are themselves alone to spoil the viewing experience. The mastering looks a little poor though the audio-video sync is perfect.
Video quality : 2.5/5
The soundtrack is pretty good. It's best to listen in Dolby 5.1, which gives crystal clear audio. The quality of sound in many sequences, particularly the breathtaking action sequences, is excellent. Songs are good to hear at that this high quality.
Audio quality: 4.5/5
Subtitles are in sync with every frame and the translation does more than justice to the film's essence.
Subtitle rating: 5/5
Extras: Haven't checked our yet, but expecting nothing great in terms of picture quality when the main DVD itself is not very impressive in terms of visual clarity.
It's the top notch packaging which deserves a special mention. It's designed and created very well. It makes the film look like a special gift to its viewer.
Airlift is a great action drama to be brought at least on a DVD, and with its stylish packaging, this special two-disc collector's edition is bound to impress. It has everything good, but it's only the slightly disappointing visual quality which makes me say that a great film like this deserved a better quality DVD. Nevertheless, the film being an engaging one can make you forget this as long as you're really absorbed into the film.
(Better buy the Blu-ray expecting a DVD quality, as the DVD turned out to have a VCD quality.)
