Apocalypse Now


Apocalypse Now Blu-ray comes close to perfection with top scores all around making it one of the best Blu-ray's ever

During the Vietnam War, young U.S. Captain Willard is given the assignment to hunt down and kill one of his own: Colonel Kurtz who has apparently gone insane, murdered hundreds of innocent people, and constructed a strange kingdom for himself deep in the jungle. Willard and his crew embark on a surreal river journey to find Kurtz, meeting along the way a Lieutenant- Colonel who likes to watch surfing during live combat, and Playboy bunnies dropped in by helicopter to entertain rowdy troops.

For more about Apocalypse Now and the Apocalypse Now Blu-ray release, see Apocalypse Now Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: Martin Sheen, Robert Duvall, Dennis Hopper, Marlon Brando, Laurence Fishburne, Harrison Ford

Apocalypse Now Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Francis Ford Coppola personally supervised the transfer (or transfers, if you think of Redux as a separate entity) of Apocalypse Now to Blu-ray, and it shows in every breathtaking frame. Encoded via AVC, in 1080p and 2.35:1, this is about as perfect an image as one could hope for, especially for a film that is now over 30 years old. Yes, the image is soft in places. That was late 1970s film, for better or worse. But what an incredible upgrade in detail and color this new Blu-ray reveals. From the first yellow haze shots of the jungle exploding in flames to the final, devastating shot of Willard leaving Kurtz's compound on his boat, Apocalypse Now fairly bristles with detail. Look for example at the scene with the backlit Willard in profile examining the dossier on Kurtz: you can literally count the hair on Sheen's neck, so clear is the image. This is an artifact free presentation, all the more impressive since dense foliage always seems to present resolving difficulties on a lot of hi-def releases. Grain is completely natural looking, never obstrusive, but apparent and giving the film and nice depth and texture. Contrast and black levels are nothing short of exceptional. The "Brando act" of this film, swathed in darkness as it is, is a revelation (no pun intended), with brilliant delineation between the bald head of Kurtz and the inky black background. But colors throughout this film are astoundingly vivid and beautifully saturated. No source element damage of any major import is noticeable, aside from some very minor blemishes which are very transitory. Simply a superior job all the way around.

Apocalypse Now Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

If it were possible to give Apocalypse Now's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track six stars for a rating, I would. This film pretty much invented modern 5.1 sound mixes (along with Star Wars, as is discussed in one of the copious extras included on this three disc set), and the attention to detail here is simply mind boggling. That first iconic sequence, which indeed starts with sound before we even get an image, is a perfect example. The weirdly synthesized helicopter rotor noise clearly starts in the right rear channel and then careens around the room channel by channel until finally The Doors' music kicks in. But it's not just the action and battle sequences that are alive with surround activity. Even small scale dialogue scenes, such as when Willard is given his mission, are filled with superby placed ambient effects and simply awesome channel separation. Fidelity is exceptional, with Carmine Coppola's synthesized score (influenced, as Francis discusses, by the then-popular albums of Japanese electronic master Tomita) has never sounded better (or stranger), and the source cues are perfectly mixed. LFE is especially robust; Coppola had wanted at one point to license Universal's Sensurround process, and the rumbling bass effects that that process provided are incredibly well presented here in Coppola's own "version" of the technique. (Universal ultimately wouldn't let him use the actual patented Sensurround process). The soundfield here is one of the most consistently brilliantly realized pieces of art (yes, art) in film history, and this lossless track is, to put it plainly, reference quality.
