Flags of Our Fathers

 (2006)

Flags of Our Fathers Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

February 1945. Even as victory in Europe was finally within reach, the war in the Pacific raged on. One of the most crucial and bloodiest battles of the war was the struggle for the island of Iwo Jima, which culminated with what would become one of the most iconic images in history: five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi. The inspiring photo capturing that moment became a symbol of victory to a nation that had grown weary of war and made instant heroes of the six American soldiers at the base of the flag, some of whom would die soon after, never knowing that they had been immortalized. But the surviving flag raisers had no interest in being held up as symbols and did not consider themselves heroes; they wanted only to stay on the front with their brothers in arms who were fighting and dying without fanfare or glory. Flags of Our Fathers is based on the bestselling book by James Bradley with Ron Powers, which chronicled the battle of Iwo Jima and the fates of the flag raisers and some of their brothers in Easy Company.

Flags of Our Fathers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Flags of Our Fathers boasts a striking 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that faithfully renders every inch of Eastwood's meticulously researched production with the utmost care. The film's palette may alternate between its subdued battle scenes and its warmer homecoming sequences, but colors remain stable, primaries are bold, and blacks are consistently rich and inky. Moreover, contrast is strong and delineation is revealing, injecting the image with an at-times startling sense of depth and dimensionality. Detail is also incredibly clean and precise -- shards of flying rock, droplets of blood, the freshest stubble, and every nick and stitch on a soldier's uniform look fantastic. There are a few shots in which textures soften a bit, but it rarely detracts from the overall quality of the transfer. It helps that the picture doesn't suffer from any distracting mishaps like artifacting or source noise. Instead, a steady veneer of grain is present at all times, giving the presentation a lovely filmic appearance. While I did catch glimpses of color banding and some minor edge enhancement, I didn't encounter anything of serious note. Ultimately, Paramount has produced a near-perfect video presentation of Flags of Our Fathers that makes this Blu-ray release well worth the cost of admission.


Flags of Our Fathers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Released in 2007, the Blu-ray edition of Flags of Our Fathers arrived long before lossless audio wormed its way into every high-def release. As such, Paramount's 640kbps Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track just doesn't pack the punch and polish you might expect from a war film. Dialogue is crisp and balanced, prioritization is spot on, and chaotic scenes offer weighty explosions and shouts throughout the soundfield... yet it all sounds a tad thin and artificial. Likewise, the LFE channel delivers some powerful bass tones, but they don't seem as refined as the thooms and booms on more recent releases. Thankfully, the track's fundamentals are in tact. Pans are transparent, directionality is flawless, and the rear speakers bring a nice sense of realism to the soundfield. Subtle ambience and convincing acoustics are on hand as well, making it quite easy to immerse oneself in the film and ignore the disc's technical shortcomings. All things considered, Flags of Our Fathers sounds pretty good. While I hope Paramount has plans to one day re-release the film with an upgraded audio package, fans shouldn't avoid this version simply because it doesn't include a lossless mix.
