Emperor

 (2012)

Emperor Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

As the Japanese surrender at the end of WWII, General Douglas MacArthur assigns the task of investigating whether Emperor Hirohito should be hanged as a war criminal to a younger staff General Bonner Fellers. Influencing his recommendation is his quest to find Aya, an exchange student he met years earlier in the U.S. All this must be done within ten days when MacArthur must decide on the Emperor's fate!

For more about Emperor and the Emperor Blu-ray release, see Emperor Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Matthew Fox, Tommy Lee Jones, Eriko Hatsune, Toshiyuki Nishida, Masayoshi Haneda, Takatarô Kataoka
Director: Peter Webber

Emperor Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Emperor is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. Director Peter Webber established his visual bona fides with Girl With a Pearl Earring, and he stages much of this film with the same sort of majesty and sense of scale. Colors are intentionally muted in the contemporary sequences, graded to a sort of slate gray most of the time. That leaves the flashbacks to the burgeoning romance between Fellers and Aya as the really vivid part of the film, often filled with an astoundingly bright palette that dabbles in gorgeous greens and yellows. Fine detail is exceptional in close-ups. The CGI is rather soft looking quite a bit of the time. The film starts out with some archival footage of the bomb being dropped on Nagasaki, and that's obviously very ragged looking in comparison to the rest of the film. Contrast, black levels and shadow detail are all consistent throughout this presentation.


Emperor Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Emperor's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is spectacularly effective quite a bit of the time, starting with some ominous low end rumbling as we watch the atom bomb being dropped on Nagasaki, and then moving on to a glut of really nicely done foley effects (listen to how the first shot of MacArthur's plane includes a really well done pan from the rear channels forward). Ambient environmental noises are utilized quite well throughout the feature, including small moments like the whimper of a child in a devastated ruin. Dialogue is always clear and clean. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is fairly wide.
