Apocalypse: World War II

 (TV) (2010)

Apocalypse: World War II Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

This captivating documentary series takes an in-depth look at the Second World War through the eyes of those who lived through it: the soldiers, the victims, and the political and military leaders. Using archival footage – most of it previously unseen and now colorized – this series provides an intimate and breath-taking examination of history’s most devastating war.

For more about Apocalypse: World War II and the Apocalypse: World War II Blu-ray release, see Apocalypse: World War II Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.



Apocalypse: World War II Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Apocalypse: World War II blasts onto Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1. It's obviously fairly useless to talk about "lifelike" color or natural saturation when one is dealing with an artifically colorized product like this. As with most colorized footage, everything is washed out, pale looking and often unreal in overall ambience. What makes the colorizing even harder to take is the actual color footage included (as with the home movies of Hitler at Berchtesgaden), which make the colorized segments literally pale by comparison. The good news is that a lot of this footage has been rather meticulously restored and we therefore are granted a well above average sharpness and clarity in a lot of the older sequences. As with any documentary, footage has been sourced from a huge variety of elements, and some of the smaller millimeter formats are incredibly grainy and soft, something the colorizing only makes worse. There's also noticeable edge enhancement an haloing on several shots. Again as might be expected, some of the source elements are badly damaged, to the point where even restoration can't completely ameliorate specks, dirt and other debris.


Apocalypse: World War II Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Though the Blu-ray insert, slipcover and accompanying press sheet all proclaim this release has a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix, the only audio option on the review copy sent to me was a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. Though it's lossy, this is a well defined and actually very carefully constructed mix which includes a wealth of ambient effects which spill into the surrounds with pleasing frequency. The sound effects include the expected explosions and gunfire but also include a number of quieter moments, things as subtle as heels clicking down a hallway or the rustling of papers. The narration is front and center and always easy to hear, and Kenji Kawai has provided an appealing underscore which owes quite a bit to Carl Davis' wonderful work on The World at War.
