Video

The quality of the picture is clear, allowing you to take in the post-apocalyptic world. There’s a lot of use of the color green in this movie that shows up really well.

Audio

A good sound mix. Dialogue is sometimes drowned out by other diagetic sound but overall a perfectly competent soundscape.
