Apollo 13

 (1995)

Apollo 13 Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

It had been less than a year since man first walked on the moon, but as far as the American public was concerned, Apollo 13 was just another "routine" space flight- until these words pierced the immense void of space: "Houston, we have a problem." Stranded 205,000 miles from Earth in a crippled spacecraft, astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert fight a desperate battle to survive. Meanwhile, at Mission Control, astronaut Ken Mattingly, flight director Gene Kranz and a heroic ground crew race against time-and the odds- to bring them home.

For more about Apollo 13 and the Apollo 13 Blu-ray release, see Apollo 13 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Tom Hanks, Ed Harris, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise, Bill Paxton, Kathleen Quinlan
Director: Ron Howard

Apollo 13 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Apollo 13 blasts onto Blu-ray with a decent, if not overwhelmingly excellent, AVC encoded 1080p image with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. This is most certainly a step up from the previously released Special Edition standard def DVD, but it's still plagued by inconsistent levels of detail and an unappealing softness at least some of the time. In the space sequences things are mostly excellent, with deep and rich black levels and brilliant contrast. Detail here can be exceptional, with every scratch inside the capsule clearly visible and the encroaching frost seeming to almost grow before the viewer's very eyes. Aside from some of the wacky 70's fashions worn by the women, there isn't a lot of color here, and in fact the palette seems deliberately muted in order to maintain focus on the emotional content of the film. Flesh tones are lifelike and what color there is is nicely saturated. Depth of field is good to excellent throughout the feature. We do get a few instances of moire patterns and aliasing on some of the more finely textured apparel and other scrimshaw patterns on the sets, but they're very fleeting.


Apollo 13 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Apollo 13's DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix toddles along rather uneventfully for the first act of the film and may lead some listeners to feel it's more than a bit underwhelming. Even in these dialogue heavy sequences, however, we're treated to sterling clarity and precise fidelity. Once blast off occurs, however, we're finally immersed in some wonderful surround activity, and the space sequences are similarly filled with some excellent foley effects which dart to and fro and give a good approximation of what being in an enclosed capsule must be like. Dialogue throughout the film is handled excellently, with some really finely nuanced differences between "open air" speech and that delivered from within the confines of a spacesuit. James Horner's wonderful score also fills the surround channels with some of his most expansive music. There are no anomalies of any kind to report on this soundtrack. This is a very intimate "epic" film, and so may not provide the nonstop, slam bang surround activity that contemporary audiences may have come to expect, but it is an excellent piece in and of itself.
