12 Angry Men Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

For more about 12 Angry Men and the 12 Angry Men Blu-ray release, see 12 Angry Men Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

12 Angry Men Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Sidney Lumet's 12 Angry Men arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit 2K from a 35mm fine-grain master positive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' DVNR was used for small dirt, grain,m and noise correction.

Telecine colorist: Russell Bishop/Deluxe Digital Media, Los Angeles.
Original audio restoration: Brian San Marco/Chace Audio, Los Angeles."

Director Lumet's legendary film has never looked this good before. Not only are detail and clarity dramatically improved, but the color-scheme is very impressively balanced, giving the film a fresh and notably crisp look. The blacks appear to have been slightly elevated, but the adjustment is indeed most appropriate as they blend very well with the variety of whites and grays (see screencapture #9). The various close-ups throughout the film also look impressive - textures are well defined and there are no signs of overzealous sharpening. A layer of light and well resolved grain is also present from start to finish. Additionally, excessive noise or edge flicker do not plague the high-definition transfer. There are no serious (frame) transition issues either. The high-definition transfer is also free of large damage marks, cuts, stains, or warps. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


12 Angry Men Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from a restored 35mm magnetic print. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated workstation."

12 Angry Men is primarily a dialog-driven film. Naturally, the English LPCM 1.0 track has a rather limited dynamic amplitude. However, the dialog has an excellent depth and very good fluidity. Occasionally some light background hiss is easy to detect, but its presence is never distracting. There are no distortions or serious sync issues to report in this review.
