I did not care for the remake of Sleuth, but it was not a bad looking film, so I had every reason to expect it would look nice on Blu Ray. Sure enough, that house with all its straight lines and angles looks mighty crisp. Even the security camera footage is in high def.
Blu-ray Review: Sleuth
The lighting scheme reflects off the marble and glass. Colors change from washed out to deep blue, with moments of green, lavender and more in different scenes. The terrible second act makeup is ever apparent, but otherwise the two leads have plenty of character on their faces for HD detail.
So while I would not recommend spending 90 minutes on Sleuth, if you are going to do it anyway, go for the Blu Ray. And if you just want to see a nice house, you can fast forward through it.
