Project Almanac (Blu-Ray): Review

The Film

A group of teens, working on a science experiment called Project Almanac, construct a time machine, and realise the lifelong work of one of their fathers. However, messing with the past and destiny, soon become part of the morel debate, and will they sacrifice their own gain for the greater good.

Project Almanac is still a fun, light hearted film about friendship and destiny, and those looking for such a story will not be disappointed.

The film holds up to repeat viewing, giving the viewer time to debate the morals of the science, and understand the intricacies of the events, as they unfold.

Disc And Bonus Features

The disc is encoded at a high bitrate, as should be expected of a Blu-Ray. There are no visible artefacts on screen, and the image is clear and stable.

The soundtrack is presented in a 5.1 mix, and while there is not a 7.1 option, this is likely not to be missed by viewers. The film does make great use of the surround channels, drawing the viewer in to the on-screen action, and expanding the viewing experience.

The bonus features are sadly a little scarce on the Project Almanac disc, with alternate beginnings and endings, and a few deleted scenes being all that are on offer. With the amount of storage available on a Blu-Ray, it is sad that there are no commentaries, making-of features, or even a talk on the possible science behind the story.

Project Almanac is available on disc now, to purchase, in South Africa.
