Chariots of Fire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Chariots of Fire is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Brothers with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. A lot of this film was purposefully shot in diffuse light with soft focus, and that may lead some to believe that this transfer is less than exceptional. It isn't. This is yet another gorgeously cinematic experience from Warner, a studio which consistently seems to recognize the value in doing the best possible job with its catalog assets. The elements here are in wonderfully excellent shape, and David Watkin's gorgeous cinematography, which more often than not utilized natural lighting schemes, is presented without any noticeable digital tweaking. Grain remains natural, and no egregious digital sharpening or noise reduction is on display. Colors are wonderfully well saturated and the image is decidedly sharper and more precise than it's even been on home video (the uptick is immediately noticeable from the first frames, with the beach scene finally popping with a clarity that was previously like visual mush, especially in the wide shots). There are some minor stability issues on the usual suspects like costumes made of tweed or even stair banisters and the like, but generally this is an incredibly sharp and pleasing transfer that offers abundant fine detail, strong contrast (with the understanding that some of the film is quite dark due to some of those natural lighting conditions) and a very commendable filmic appearance.


Chariots of Fire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Chariots of Fire features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that may strike some as being uncharacteristically reserved for a sports oriented film. While it can't be denied that the mix does tend to favor the front channels, several key sequences nicely open up into the surrounds, including several of the running segments and scenes which feature large, boisterous crowds. The surround channels probably are most clearly exploited by the interesting Vangelis score, a contemporary achievement that would seem to be completely "wrong" for and at odds with a film like this, but which works amazingly well nonetheless. It's even more remarkable when you consider that the film also works in all sorts of source cues, including a copious amount of Gilbert and Sullivan, but things still sound coherent and consistent. Fidelity is very strong in this presentation, with dialogue well prioritized and cleanly presented.
