Black Gold

Black Gold Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Set in the 1930s Arab states at the dawn of the oil boom, the story centers on a young Arab prince torn between allegiance to his conservative father and modern, liberal father-in-law.

For more about Black Gold and the Black Gold Blu-ray release, see Black Gold Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Black Gold Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.34:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Jacques Annaud's Black Gold arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Brothers-France.

The high-definition transfer is virtually flawless. Detail and clarity are outstanding, both during close-ups and large panoramic shots (see screencapture #7). Color reproduction is also excellent. The footage from the desert, in particular, boasts some remarkably rich yellows, browns, blues, and blacks. Most indoor sequences where light is restricted also look terrific. Additionally, there are no traces of compromising sharpening corrections or other lab tweaks to report in this review. The high-definition transfer is also free of serious banding and aliasing issues. There is no edge flicker or serious stability issues either. All in all, Warner's presentation of this very ambitious and very expensive film is indeed quite impressive. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Black Gold Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Warner Brothers have included imposed French subtitles for the main feature (when the original English audio track is selected, they cannot be turned off). The subtitles split the image frame and the black bar below it.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track has an impressive range of nuanced dynamics. During selected sequences seemingly random audio effects enhance the exotic atmosphere very well. Elsewhere, the shootouts and battles are very aggressive. James Horner's music score also benefits tremendously from the lossless treatment. The dialog is crisp and clean, but this is the kind of film where optional English subtitles could be quite helpful as a number of the main characters have notably thick accents. Unfortunately, the Blu-ray release comes only with imposed French subtitles. For the record, there are no problematic audio dropouts to report in this review.
