| Film Synopsis |
From the creators of 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Shallows, HORIZON LINE is a thrilling survival story about two former lovers, Sara (Allison Williams) and Jackson (Alexander Dreymon) who discover new altitudes of fear aboard a single-engine plane. It was supposed to be a routine and casual 99-minute flight to their friend’s tropical island wedding. But within minutes after takeoff, their pilot suffers a fatal heart attack, leaving Sara and Jackson with no idea where they are, no comms, and no clue how to land the plane. With nothing but miles of ocean and sky in every direction, and a terrifying storm that’s about to envelop them, Sara and Jackson have only one shot – and there’s no going back.

'HORIZON LINE' comes to Blu-Ray in a vibrant 1080p presentation in its 2:39.1 original aspect ratio that truly pops in high definition. The colors detail is relatively sharp throughout. Black levels are pretty deep. There's good basic definition and intricacy to faces, clothes and the cockpit of the plane.
| Audio |
The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is quite engaging, but does fail to deliver something truly unbelievable. Dialogue comes through clearly on centre, but the roar of the plane and wind often lessens the distinctiveness of particular sounds on the surrounds.

| Overall Reaction |
At 90 minutes, 'HORIZON LINE' turns out to be a pretty solid little Thriller to watch. Universal's presentation on the Blu-ray format is absent extras beyond a trio of deleted scenes. Video is solid but sound could have been better.
