Battle of the Bulge Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Battle of the Bulge's "Ultra Panavision" photography truly needs to be seen on the largest screen possible, and Warner Brothers' 1080p Blu-ray release has the muscle to display it big for home viewing. The image is stable and handsome, generally. It serves up very nice detailing, right down to pebbly roads and muddy tank treads. Military hardware is precise and well-worn, captured nicely on film and recreated on Blu-ray with great visual clarity and accuracy. Facial and clothing textures are strong, and the nitty-gritty details of blown-out buildings, razor-sharp debris, and even the medals pinned to German chests appear crisp and nicely defined. The image remains sharp even at a distance. Colors are excellent, even if the film largely features grays and greens and browns as its primaries. Splashes of red on German uniforms, however, are presented cleanly and accurately. The image does show a few worts, but nothing that should be a deal breaker. Slight aliasing is visible in a handful of objects, such as the grill on the German car seen at the beginning of the film and later on a green lampshade in a U.S. headquarters room. The transfer also features some edge halos and light banding across some of the brightest sky shots. Overall, however, this is a proficient, handsome transfer that serves the material nicely.


Battle of the Bulge Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Nuts. For all the military muscle in Battle of the Bulge, Warner Brothers' Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack fails to bring it to life. The track is a puny one, never really getting off the ground, sounding tired, not at all aggressive, and never immersive, despite both the heavy action and the 5.1 channels at its disposal. The overture music does play with nice range and good clarity, including fairly crisp highs. Music shares that same feeling throughout. But the track fails to present even modest power or even acceptable volume at reference levels. It never feels as "huge" as the movie. Even when it manages some decent directional or area-specific sound effects -- a plane whirring on by, gunfire from a specific point in the soundstage, artillery fire zooming on by -- they play quietly and absent any sort of vigor, let alone authenticity. The closing of heavy steel doors, machine gun fire, explosions, even a speeding train play with only a meager sonic signature, a modest "hello" and a hint of what should be. The track does manage a slightly deeper rumble and greater presence in a few scenes where tanks roll slowly and heavily on through the listening area, but it's too little and much too late to really save the track. This lossy presentation does feature fair ambience; for instance, it does well to paint the picture of a busy military headquarters where ringing phones, clanking typewriters, and chatter at least do well in recreating the scene, though not anywhere near the level of absolute immersion. Dialogue is clear, but like the rest of the material it lacks authority; casual conversation definitely needs a little more oomph to it. It's not a disaster so much as a disappointment, but to be sure Battle of the Bulge won't get the old audio juices flowing even in the heat of the heaviest battle.
