Crack in the World

 (1965)

Crack in the World Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Dr. Steven Sorenson plans to tap the geothermal energy of the Earth's interior by means of a thermonuclear device detonated deep within the Earth. Despite dire warnings by fellow scientist Ted Rampian, Dr Sorenson proceeds with the experiment after secretly learning that he is terminally ill. This experiment causes a crack to form and grow within the earth's crust, which threatens to split the earth in two if it is not stopped in time

Crack in the World Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Crack in the World was released on DVD by Olive Films about a year ago, and the same 35mm print seems to have provided the source element for this new AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. There are both pluses and minuses to this Blu-ray. The print is largely damage free, though occasional white specks, scratches and other relatively small signs of age crop up from time to time. More troubling are some registration and flicker issues, which are especially apparent in the first reel. There are also occasional frame to frame mismatches which give very occasional jerks in an otherwise fluid presentation. There's one rear projection sequence that presents some pretty bad blue flare, and the film also has several interstitial uses of stock footage (including somewhat unbelievably some black and white footage) which has degraded image quality when compared to the rest of the film. Some of the opticals are also understandably overly grainy and dirty looking. The overall transfer is still rather soft looking, much like the DVD, though it's inarguable this release is an uptick from that DVD, especially with regard to saturation, which is quite exemplary a lot of the time. There hasn't been any egregious DNR applied to this release, so there's still a very filmic texture to the proceedings.


Crack in the World Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Despite cranking all of its bombast out in an uncompressed mono LPCM mix, Crack in the World sounds surprisingly spry for its age, and best of all, it still has a good deal of rumble in its low end, offering some nicely robust LFE at several key moments. There's no egregious damage to report on this track, and the mix, while extremely narrow, is well balanced between dialogue, ubiquitous sound effects, and Johnny Douglas' semi-swingin' score. Occasionally there's a bit of conflict between that score and some of the effects, but that's inherent in the original mixdown and not a function of this particular track. Overall, the LPCM mono track sounds great, especially considering its age, and few will have any complaints, other than the lack of surround activity.
