The technical side of the main feature is far better. The print is perfectly clean and detail is abundant. It isn't the richest of color palettes, but depending on the location there are some moments of bright color which do pop. The dark sequences still provide ample light to make out what's going on and dark colors don't fade into one another. John Williams' brilliant score for the film plays clearly on the 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track, which is well-leveled and alive with atmosphere. The film jumps from location to location and the soundtrack takes you there as well – whether it's a school full of screaming girls, a hospital ER, or a massive printing press in a small town in France. It is, as with the visual presentation, free of defects and it offers up crisp and clear audio.
Catch me if You Can isn't a movie I loved during its initial theatrical run, but it is one that I loved watching now on Blu-ray. It is this airy confection that manages to have a real heart and soul at its center. The father-father-son tale may not be the most traditional, but it certainly bolsters what I learned in film school and is a huge amount of fun to watch.
