Belly

 (1998)

Belly Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Featuring an all-star cast of multiplatinum rap artists and the visual wizardry of one of the most innovative directors of our generation, Belly is a dark, poignant urban thriller starring Earl Simmons, aka DMX, as Tommy Brown, an ambitious upstart street hustler on a desperate quest for money, power and respect. Nasir Jones, aka Nas, is Sincere, his best friend who is equally determined to turn his criminal life around. Technically dazzling, brutally realistic, yet always mesmerizing, "Belly" vividly captures the desperate forces driving today's urban youth culture.

For more about Belly and the Belly Blu-ray release, see Belly Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Nas, DMX, Taral Hicks, T-Boz, Method Man, Frank Vincent
Director: Hype Williams

Belly Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Belly busts onto Blu-ray with a transfer that seems true to the schizophrenic-like nature of the photography employed throughout the film. The highly stylized nature of the picture is evident right from the opening credits that exhibit a tremendous amount of noise and grain. The interior of the club is bathed in fluorescent blue and red. Even the opening credits themselves exhibit a blue bleed shadowing them. These dark and blue themes contrast sharply with the almost too clean white house where Tommy lives. Everything from the wall to the pool table are a bright, crisp white, symbolizing the sanctuary of home versus the harshness of life outside, the clean world that the dirty has built. Dark scenes are extremely dark, so much so that we can barely see what's happening at times (this is addressed by director Hype Williams in the commentary track), and the rough edge of the movie is more evident in these darkest scenes than anywhere else. The level of detail is generally high. A close-up of Ox in chapter four reveals all his facial details wonderfully. His living room also has a pleasant, realistic, clean look to it, again with many white furnishings, this time accentuated by a bit more color than what we saw in Tommy's house. The print shows some speckles and imperfections as well that cannot be attributed to grain or style. In many places, Belly looks fantastic, clean, clear, colorful, and sparkling in high definition. Colors, generally seen on bright, sunlit streets, are vibrant and realistic, and detail and depth are also impressive. Taking the film on a scene-by-scene basis, understanding the director's intended look for the film, and going in with an open mind, the strengths of this transfer definitely outweigh the weaknesses, real or perceived, based on the style of the film.


Belly Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Belly's 7.1 channel DTS-HD MA lossless soundtrack is generally lively and exuberant, filled with hip-hop beats, gunfire, and street-smart dialogue, all of which make for the best aspect of the disc. The singing over the opening credits, completely a cappella, features a great rear-channel presence that matches the main content found up front nicely. The deep beats of the rap music blend nicely into the soundtrack, too. In chapter three, as Sincere and Tommy discuss going deeper into the drug business, the music plays underneath the dialogue. Its presence is generally loud and thumps come from the subwoofer with a nice authority that barely rumbles your seat, but the dialogue remains loud enough to make out every syllable with ease. The combination, and both at just the right volume, don't make for a refernece-quality listen, but rather a pleasant, realistic experience. Chapter eight offers one of the best immersion experiences you'll have in quite a while as the hip-hop music surrounds you and invades your senses, placing you in a smoky, electric club where the sound literally comes from all directions with some reserved, but solid, rumbles of bass. Gunshots pound with devastating authority, including several shots from a .50 caliber Desert Eagle handgun. Dialogue is handled well with no volume or placement issues. The film offers plenty of surround activity, but little in the way of natural ambience that leaves a mildly cold and distant feel in the listener. Nevertheless, Belly offers up a solid listen that should be a crowd pleaser.
