It's been heavily processed, but in motion it's not the most offensive Blu-ray I've ever seen. Detail is very respectable in spite of the DNR, with the image still clinging on to some small vestige of its grain. I remember hating the HD DVD version for the EE, which was so bad it looked like there were force fields around everything, yet it's not quite that offensive on Blu. Obvious, yes, but not horribly bad. But, as makov said, without a direct comparison I can't honestly say whether it's the same master as the HD DVD.
