Delivery Man Blu-ray review

Mar 25, 2014- Permalink

Delivery Man is a remake of the French-Canadian film Starbuck. It follows David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) an underachiever who has achieved one thing: he’s fathered 533 children via his sperm bank donations and over one hundred of them have sued to learn his identity. The film traces his attempts to get to know his offspring.

This isn’t Avatar, so it’s not like we’re expecting the world from its Blu-ray transfer. Still the 1080p/AVC transfer is very sharp and you can see facial textures and other surfaces very well. Colours in some darker interior scenes do have some saturation issues.

The lossless DTS-HD 5.1 audio mix is good t delivering dialogue, but one shouldn’t expect this to be an immersive surround experience.

The extra are fairly simple. We get a 16 minute featurette where director Ken Scott and the cast (Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, and Cobie Smulders) talk about the film, a few minutes of Vaughn improvising, bloopers, a deleted scene and some upcoming release trailers.

If you’re building a Vince Vaughn shrine in your basement a) buy the Blu-ray for your collection and b) hold on a sec while I call the police. If you can take or leave Vaughn, then you might want to wait until you can get it at a discounted price.
