A remake can always be a dicey proposition. The 2011 version of Footloose manages to entertain while maintaining the spirit of the 1984 original. While it isn’t a deeply moving drama, the film is more than just pop music and dancing.

Video

This 1080p High Definition release is presented with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio and has a lush look and feel, beautifully representative of the Super 35 film stock upon which it was captured, with bold bursts of green and sunny yellows and gold awash over the rural scenes.

Audio

The surrounds are superbly balanced giving a complete and surprisingly immersive quality to the audio. The center channel carries the lion’s share of dialogue and is perfectly crisp.
