Many people had forgotten that "The Smurfs 2" was released back in 2013, but a piracy group had not, as a torrent of its Ultra HD Blu-Ray home release has been spotted on a private tracker. What makes this torrent exceptional is the apparent آ– though unconfirmed آ– circumvention of AACS 2.0 encryption on the discs, designed to inhibit unauthorized parties from decrypting its media. Whatever method deployed for unlocking this protection seems to have raised quality concerns.
While the audio seems to match, the Maximum Content Light Level and Maximum Frame-Average Light Level listed in the media info appear to be different, and the colors in the screenshots are off too. This means that it’s warranted to remain reserved when it comes to definitive "cracked" claims at this time.
