'Let Him Go' debuts on Blu-ray with a 1080p transfer framed at the 2.39:1 aspect ratio. Black levels are largely fine. Skin tones are accurate to any given lighting condition. Many of the scenic shots are truly beautiful. Overall this is a very good looking transfer.

'Let Him Go' brings a DTS-HD MA 7.1 audio mix soundtrack. Most of the film is very front/center focused leaving the remaining channels to set up the atmospheric. Dialogue is clear. Composer Michael Giacchino delivers a beautiful soundtrack.

| Overall Reaction |
Overall I really enjoyed this film. Kevin Costner and Diane Lane are worthy of Oscar consideration. Universal's Blu-ray is a bit thin on the special features but video and audio presentations are good. Very highly recommended, 'Let Him Go' is definitely worth your time.
