NEVER GROW OLD is directed by Ivan Kavanagh. His other films are TIN CAN MAN and THE FADING LIGHT. This movie is in the western/frontier setting with a lot with the cinematography reminding me of THE WITCH. What I mean is that there is no lighting that is unnatural and it is very dark. There are few scenes where Cusack is in any kind of daytime light and constantly shrouded in shadows.
Emile Hirsch – Patrick Tate
Deborah Francois – Audrey Tate
John Cusack – Dutch Albert
Danny Webb – Preacher Pike
VIDEO QUALITY:The video is a 1080p AVC presentation that an overall dark movie. Even the daytime scenes are in the overcast gloom in a cooler blue tone. The dark scenes have deep blacks that are typically lit but flames or torches. There are some great details on the wood settings and the rough fabrics of the clothing. Facial hair and other skin imperfections are also clear to see. Coloring is muted and but very consistently that way.
AUDIO QUALITY:The audio is a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that definitely keeps busy. The strongest LFE moments are from the blasts gunfire. There are sounds from the town and other ambient sounds from various things around. The dialogue is prioritized well.
