Video
Into The Wild comes to Blu-ray with a 1080p VC-1 video presentation. The transfer is quite nice throughout, and I can't complain much. Colors are rich and vibrant throughout, with the occasional scene that either is dull or just washed out. Black levels were good, and detail was sharp. There was grain throughout, but fits the film, and never felt too intrusive to the high-def experience. 8/10.

Audio
A 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio track is included, and sounds quite strong. The film's music sounds fantastic, making full use of the surround speakers. Dialogue stayed front and center, nice and clear at all times. It's a very light track for the most part, but it sounds very nice. 8/10.

Extras
Into The Wild: The Story, The Characters (21:54) (SD)
Into The Wild: The Experience (17:20) (SD)
Theatrical Trailer (2:34) (HD)

Blu-news Summary
Into The Wild was a pretty good film, but I did not find it to be as amazing as most probably would. I felt the story overall to be a bit weak, I did certainly find it entertaining overall though. It's just not a film I can see myself watching again, once feels like enough.

The Blu-ray release is quite nice, with very good video and audio. Extras are a bit lacking, but at least all the original DVD extras were included. Overall I would recommend that you 'Give It A Rent' first, but for those who have seen and enjoyed the film, the Blu-ray presentation is 'Recommended.'
