For more about Army of Darkness and the Army of Darkness Blu-ray release, see Army of Darkness Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Army of Darkness Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC, and granted a 1080p transfer Army of Darkness arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Releasing.

I am pleasantly surprised with Optimum's Blu-ray treatment of Army of Darkness. I wasn't expecting much of an improvement over the SDVD R3 disc (arguably the best presentation the film had received) but, suffice to say, once I popped the screener into my player, I really could not take my eyes off the screen. First of all, Optimum's transfer reveals an impressive color-scheme where reds, yellows, and blacks are practically perfect. In fact, while I was taking the screengrabs for the review, I could not stop looking at the desert scenes from the prologue – these simply do not look like something you would see in a low-budget production. Furthermore, detail and clarity are probably the best I have seen Army of Darkness reveal in any format. If you thought that the R3 DVD was solid, wait until you see this presentation (screen captures are typically not a truthful indicator as to what the actual quality of a Blu-ray transfer is, but take a look at screengrab 2). I did not notice any disturbing patterns of edge enhancement either. During the forest scenes, where Bruce Campbell acquires the Book of the Dead, I saw a bit of macroblocking, but nothing really disturbing that should interfere with your viewing experience. This being said, the quality of the actual print is also very good. There is plenty of healthy film grain and I could not detect any traces of DNR manipulation. Film noise is also kept at a minimum and as a result Army of Darkness really does look quite exceptional in 1080p. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" release which you will not be able to play in Region-A PS3 or SAs. To view the Blu-ray disc you will need to use Region-B or Region-Free hardware).


Army of Darkness Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English: Dolby Digital 5.1. Once again, the high-resolution audio track proves to be the winner. Plenty of surround activity (from the chase in the forest, to the witch pirouettes, to the final battle scene the Blu-ray disc delivers with a bang) and the more sophisticated your sound system the more of a difference you will hear. There are some terrific effects on this disc and, as far as I am concerned, it is almost impossible not to be impressed by the variety of sounds coming off the speakers. Some of the wackier scenes get a real boost with the DTS-HD Master mix, and I certainly felt like I've been missing a lot with previous releases. More importantly, however, the DTS-HD Master mix is notably solid – you won't hear any balance fluctuations, pops, or cracks. This being said, it is somewhat unfortunate that Optimum have not included optional subtitles for their Blu-ray release of Army of Darkness. While I personally did not need them, I am convinced that there are enough potential viewers out there who would have welcomed the inclusion of, at least, an English SDH track.
