Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes and Huntsmen Part One appears in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The film delivered a top-notch visual presentation.
Sharpness looked immaculate. Virtually no soft spots emerged during this tight, concise image.
No issues with jagged edges or moiré effects materialized, and I saw no edge haloes. Source flaws also failed to manifest.
Huntsmen came with a broad palette that emphasized primary colors for the most part. The disc replicated these hues in a vivid, dynamic manner.
Blacks felt deep and dense, while low-light shots offered appealing clarity and smoothness. Across the board, the film looked great.
While not quite as strong, the movie’s DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack fared nicely as well. This meant a fairly involving soundscape.
Unsurprisingly, action scenes became the most engaging. Nonetheless, the general soundfield showed a nice level of activity and formed a solid core.
Audio quality worked fine, with dialogue that seemed natural and distinctive. Music boasted nice range and impact.
Effects also came across as vivid and accurate, with good dynamics and no signs of distortion. This turned into a worthwhile soundtrack.
A few extras appear here, and a featurette called Justice Comes to Remnant runs seven minutes, 35 seconds and brings notes from director Kerry Shawcross, writer Meghan Fitzmartin, producer Ethan Spaulding, and actors Kara Eberle, Barbara Dunkelman, Arryn Zech, and Lindsay Jones.
They cover the characters and situations of the RWBY universe. This will be old hat to fans of that franchise, but for newbies, it offers a good tutorial.
You Look…. Different goes for nine minutes, one second and offers comments from Shawcross, Fitzmartin, and Spaulding.
We get a view of how the film's producers redesigned the Justice League characters for the RWBY world. It becomes a decent look at the topics
Under From the DC Vault, we locate an episode of Justice League Unlimited called “Kid Stuff” (23:09) as well as a program from Justice League Action entitled “Plastic Man Saves the World” (11:14).
In “Stuff”, when an evil adolescent king banishes all adults to a shadow realm, a sorceress turns the Justice League into kids so they can deal with the threat. This doesn't become a deep story but it offers fun twists.
Via “World”, when the Justice League struggles to battle Brainiac, Plastic Man enters the fray - whether they want him there or not. I don't really get the connection between Huntsmen and this episode, but it offers a brisk and lively tale.
As a crossover story, Justice League x RWBY: Super Heroes and Huntsmen Part One provides a mixed bag. However, it manages fairly consistent entertainment. The Blu-ray comes with excellent visuals, solid audio and a smattering of bonus materials. This never turns into a terrific adventure but it does more right than wrong.
