AC/DC: Let There Be Rock

 (1980)

AC/DC: Let There Be Rock Blu-ray offers decent video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The only movie powered by AC/DC. This legendary concert film, covering a 1979 Paris concert during the Australian heavy metal band's "Highway To Hell" tour showcases the power and precision that the quintet bring to vicious rockers like "Whole Lotta Rosie" and "Let There Be Rock." Pixie-ish lead guitarist Angus Young, attired in his trademark school-boy's uniform, takes center stage with his energetic antics and frenetic solos, while the rest of the band crank out their minimalist boogie with quiet determination. Interview segments and humorous backstage footage show another side to the thuggish musicians, especially AC/DC's flamboyant lead singer Bon Scott, who died two months after this filmed concert.

For more about AC/DC: Let There Be Rock and the AC/DC: Let There Be Rock Blu-ray release, see AC/DC: Let There Be Rock Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Malcolm Young, Angus Young, Cliff Williams, Phil Rudd, Bon Scott

AC/DC: Let There Be Rock Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Despite a generally strong AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1, AC/DC Let There Be Rock simply can't overcome the limitations of its source elements. This is a piece that was shot in virtual darkness a lot of time with what appears to have been smaller millimeter formats (at least some of the time), and therefore this feature has a somewhat murky and soft appearance. While grain is quite evident in any number of shots, it does appear that at least some moderate DNR may have been applied to this release, leading to a kind of smeary ambience some of the time. Colors are generally excellent, and things look a good deal better in the hotel "confessional" sequences as well as the sort of proto-music video which is included as part of the concert. But the main concert footage, which consists largely of the band playing in aggressive red (demonic?) light is very, very soft and suffers from fairly severe crush, so that backgrounds simply disappear and shadow detail reveals next to nothing.


AC/DC: Let There Be Rock Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Thankfully things are much better on the audio side of things, which is probably the main calling card for fans, anyway. Aside from the original mix in Dolby Digital 2.0, this release sports an excellent lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix which offers incredibly robust low end, bringing the propulsive riffs of AC/DC fully to life. There are some occasional mix issues in terms of Bon not being mixed loudly enough above the band, but those are no doubt endemic to the original mixdown. The surround repurposing is really good and allows the individual instruments to really shine, giving ample breathing space to all of them. The drums are crisp and solid and the Young boys sound fantastic. Fidelity is excellent, and though the band typically plays everything "turned up to 11," dynamic range is also quite supple.
