Blu-Ray Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
A solid presentation with great audio and video doesn't make up for the easily forgettable script.
April 12, 2012 by EH Staff

Many of us wish we could go back in time. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close tells the story of a young boy, Oskar, who seeks to find a way to live in a new world without his father. Flashbacks are used to bring an element of nostalgia, but fails to create an overly memorable film.

Home Theater Forum’s MattCR reviewed the Blu-ray release and had these thoughts:


Shots of scenery, landscape and close ups of the cast are extremely well done and it’s hard to ask more of a high definition transfer. That’s not to say that it’s perfect though.


Dialog is crisp and clear, and ambient noises and off set cues fill up the room and help flesh out a great number of moments in the film. Rear channels and LFE are used fantastically in this DTS-HD 5.1 mix in that the small sounds of the city come to life giving Oskar’s journey that sense of realness.
