Beowulf & Grendel Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

This was a highly puzzling and annoying transfer, unfortunately. Presented in 1080p and in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1, Beowulf and Grendel is a mess visually. It looks great at times--colors, especially reds, are very vibrant. Sadly, the disc is plagued with nagging problems. The image is very soft from the get-go, especially on longer distance shots. Rolling hills look more like green globs than anything else. At one point, there is an odd jump in the tint of the entire image of the film. Perhaps a fade was supposed to be there, but something was definitely wrong. Foggy scenes, especially one in particular, look downright dreadful. There is an exorbitant amount of noise present in one such scene, and it's perhaps the worst moment I have seen on a Blu-ray disc. Blacks are a little bright at times and cause the picture to look washed out. Haloing is an issue here and there. The image is rather flat throughout. Even when it looks good (and that is quite often) it doesn't jump off the screen. Overall this is a decent transfer with more than a fair share of problems. The bottom line is that for the majority of the runtime this is a nice looking transfer, but when problems arise it can look pretty bad.


Beowulf & Grendel Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fortunately, Beowulf and Grendel fares much, much better in the audio department. Starz has included both Dolby Digital 5.1 and 5.1 PCM uncompressed audio tracks. This film has a powerful yet beautiful score. It is subdued and almost angelic sounding and it is a perfect match for this film. The film was nominated for a Genie award for the score, and it is worthy of such recognition. This is a mostly front heavy track. Dialogue can be slightly muddled at times, and the thick accents of most of the actors doesn't help clear things up. The track is appropriately loud when it needs to be without distortion. Bass will vibrate in your seat. There was nothing spectacular about this track, but there was nothing noticeably wrong with it either. It's a solid, loud, and often spellbinding audio track that makes the film that much better.
