  • Video: 52

  • Universal's 1080p/VC-1 transfer excels in capturing Deakins's stunning cinematography, with vibrant colors and detailed shots, despite occasional softness. However, obvious edge enhancement detracts notably for videophiles.

  • Audio: 57

  • Universal's DTS-HD 5.1 audio for A Beautiful Mind impresses with clear, prioritized dialogue and a balanced soundfield, enhancing the drama without overwhelming with LFE or rear action, yet still marking intense moments effectively.

  • Extra: 57

  • The Blu-ray release of A Beautiful Mind largely mirrors its DVD counterpart, offering vast but standard-definition special features, including informative commentaries and behind-the-scenes footage, despite some minor content omissions and redundancies.

  • Movie: 47

  • A Beautiful Mind, starring Russell Crowe, excels in acting and visuals yet strays far from John Nash's real story, sacrificing authenticity for dramatic effect.
