Coach Carter

 (2005)

Coach Carter Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Inspired by the true story of controversial Richmond, California basketball coach Ken Carter, who received both high praise and staunch criticism when he made national news for benching his entire team undefeated team for poor academic performance. Tension mounted as the Richmond High Oilers faced the upcoming basketball championship. The town was wild with excitement over their undefeated team and the bleachers were filled with cheering fans for every game. No one could imagine that on January 4, 1999 the community would erupt in dissention and so many lives would change forever when coach Carter padlocked the gym, refusing the players access for failing to keep up their grades.

Coach Carter Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Coach Carter arrived fairly early in the Blu-ray era with a decent looking AVC encoded image in full 1080p in a 2.39:1 aspect ratio. This is a film that exults in drab browns and beiges a lot of the time, so don't expect eye popping color. In fact a lot of the film is gritty and dark, as befits its inner city setting. While sharpness is certainly well above SD DVD levels, I was a bit disappointed with low contrast here, which gives the film a sort of murky inchoate quality, especially in some of the dimly lit interior scenes. Colors, while certainly not forming a hugely disparate palette, are lifelike and well balanced. The low contrast gives at least the appearance of some crushing in the blacks (especially in a night time party scene). Grain isn't overly noticeable, but the film has a decent texture and depth. All in all, this is a solid, if not overwhelmingly strong, transfer that should at least meet the expectations of most people interested in the title.


Coach Carter Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Audiophiles may be surprised at how sonically tame Coach Carter's lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix is, at least for the bulk of the picture. That can't really be blamed on the reproduction, but on the track itself, which stems from the film's more modest ambitions as an intimate drama with sports elements, rather than vice versa. Therefore, expect a lot of one on one dialogue firmly anchored to the front channels, all of which is perfectly heard and reproduced with absolute clarity. There are efforts at directionality even in these moments, especially in some of the many scenes in the high school gymnasium. The surround channels really only kick in, as perhaps might be expected, in the game sequences, and we then get at least a modicum of immersion, as the roar of the crowd erupts from the rear channels while the grunts and groans of the players ping pong to and fro between the channels as they make their way across the floor. This is not a bombastic track by any means, even in the game sequences, but it services this "kinder, gentler" sports film rather well. While there really doesn't seem to be a lot of low end on this track, simply toggle between the TrueHD track and the standard Dolby 5.1 track and you'll immediately notice the upgrade, even with the relatively meager source elements with which it's working.
