Cinderella Man

 (2005)

Cinderella Man Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Cinderella Man is inspired by the life of legendary athlete Jim Braddock, a once-promising light heavyweight boxer forced into retirement after a string of losses in the ring. As the nation enters the darkest years of the Great Depression, Braddock accepts a string of dead- end jobs to support his wife, Mae, and their children, while never totally abandoning his dream of boxing again.

Thanks to a last minute cancellation, Braddock finds himself back in the ring against the second-ranked world contender — and to everyone's amazement, Braddock wins in the third round. Despite being pounds lighter than his opponents and repeated injuries to his hands, Braddock continues to fight against challengers and win. Carrying on his shoulders the hopes and dreams of the disenfranchised masses, Braddock, dubbed the "Cinderella Man," faces his toughest challenger in Max Baer, the heavyweight champion of the world, renowned for having killed two men in the ring.

Cinderella Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Blu-ray edition of Cinderella Man features a filmic 1080p/VC-1 transfer that, while dark and soft, is quite faithful to cinematographer Salvatore Totino and director Ron Howard's intentions. The palette alternates between warm, golden hues and bleak, colorless expanses, both of which capture the tone of the period and enhance the emotional undercurrent of the story. Blacks are thick and oppressive, but coat the foregrounds and backgrounds beautifully while offering better shadow visibility than the film's previous DVD releases. Likewise, overall detail isn't as crisp or refined as Blu-ray enthusiasts might expect (Totino's use of Cooke S4 prime lenses being the culprit), but textures are still relatively revealing, edges are well-defined (without the help of any overzealous edge enhancement), and the film's intermittent brightly-lit shots look fantastic. It helps that the image is extremely clean: I didn't detect any distracting source noise, artifacting, banding, or blocking. And while it appears Universal employed a minor application of DNR to reduce grain, the technique's usual side effects (waxy faces, motion smearing, and loss of clarity) have been kept to a bare minimum.

All things considered, Cinderella Man looks great. It doesn't deliver the sort of jaw-dropping picture you'll use to showcase your equipment, but it provides an excellent representation of the film's original theatrical presentation.


Cinderella Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal comes through with yet another stirring DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Braddock's bouts are extraordinary: sharp thwacks enhance jabs in the heat of battle, a wet splatter accompanies the leathery whump of hooks, and the meaty shunk of a shot to the jaw packs enough punch to leave a lasting impression on the listener. Hushed dialogue is definitely the cornerstone of the film's soundscape, but the scattered fight sequences showcase the track's LFE prowess, dynamic power, and rear speaker proficiency. No matter the scene, pans are smooth, directionality is accurate, and prioritization is impeccable. Even Thomas Newman's musical score has been meticulously distributed across the soundfield; his crooning violins and heart-aching melodies nestling softly amongst the speakers, enveloping the listener at every turn.

As it stands, my only complaint is that Howard's quietest scenes lack comparable presence. Acoustics are underwhelming at times, injecting an unsettling silence into several subdued interior spaces. Regardless, Cinderella Man's efficient Master Audio track is a satisfying treat any fan or audiophile will be able to enjoy.
