As he tries to keep his own frustrations in check, he excels in his sport and gradually receives the recognition he deserves.

42 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

42's digital photography sparkles on Blu-ray. While there's a clean appearance to the image, it also captures film-quality textures and colors that both look wonderful in the movie and also bode well for the future of digital to better replicate the appearance of film. This is easily one of the finest-looking digital films yet. Every texture and color is not only in order but the image absolutely dazzles in every shot. Heavier old baseball uniforms, crisp suit jacket lines, light wear and tear on catcher's gear, leathery glove textures, even the sand granules around the diamond look magnificent, extremely well defined up-close and sharp and clear at medium and long distances. The entire image enjoys amazing clarity in all directions and at any distance, whether the finest details or the largest surfaces. Colors, too, are amazingly balanced and brilliantly displayed. While there's a very light warmth to the image, every shade stands out as naturally and, when necessary, vibrantly displayed. Dodger blue looks amazing, but so too do all of the surrounding earth tones on clothes and the baseball diamond. There are some amazingly bright greens around the frame, too, not to mention exciting splashes of red. Black levels are excellent, remaining true to life and displaying no evidence of crush or unnatural brightness. Flesh tones, too, are fine, influenced only by that lightly warm sepia. There's no major evidence of noise, banding, blocking, or other such things. This is a real looker, an excellent transfer from Warner Brothers in every regard.


42 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

42 features an excellent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. There's a seamless stage presence to every scene, whether robust baseball games or quieter dialogue moments. The track handles extremes very well; a rumbling train powers through the stage just as easily as light background noise at an airport gently fills the listening area and recreates the location to sonic perfection. Musical delivery is amazingly clear and precise, enjoying seamless spacing across the front and just the right amount of surround support in the rear. Bass is heavy when necessary but never too rumbly or unkempt. The track seems always naturally spacious and captures every sonic detail with unmissable clarity and realism. Whether bat striking ball, slides in the dirt, or even the echo of the national anthem flowing through stadium speakers in chapter seven, there's never an element that's out of place or out of order. The track naturally and effortlessly submerges the listener in the excitement and drama. This is an amazing presentation from Warner Brothers.
