Forrest Gump

 (1994)

Forrest Gump Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The title character leads viewers through an accidental travelogue of U.S. social history from the early 1960s through the present in this revisionist fable. Vietnam, desegregation, Watergate, and more are presented from the perspective of loveably slow-witted Forrest Gump as he finds himself embroiled in situations he can't quite comprehend.

For more about Forrest Gump and the Forrest Gump Blu-ray release, see Forrest Gump Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Tom Hanks, Robin Wright Penn, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson, Sally Field, Haley Joel Osment
Director: Robert Zemeckis

Forrest Gump Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Forrest Gump floats onto Blu-ray with a spectacular 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer. Aside from the occasional speckle over the image, Forrest Gump delivers a natural and film-like high definition transfer that should more than satisfy both longtime fans of the film and videophiles alike. The transfer reveals a strong sense of depth in most every scene, exceptional clarity and sharpness, high levels of fine detail, strong color reproduction, and a moderate layer of natural grain that rounds out a wonderful visual experience. Perhaps the most impressive aspect is the high level of visible detail throughout; whether Presidential china as seen in one scene, bricks and building Façades in downtown Greenbow, the general wear-and-tear on Forrest's shrimping vessel, or even the glean of freshly-polished Army boots in one scene, there's nary a moment where viewers won't be pleased with the fine detail in most every nook and cranny seen in the film. Perhaps most visually stimulating in the film is the Vietnam sequence. The heavy green foliage looks marvelous and pops off the screen, and fine detail is most impressive as seen on both tree trunks and dirt roads but also in the wrinkles, tears, and other nuances as seen on the U.S. military uniforms in appropriately up-close shots. Close-ups of faces, too, reveal extraordinary texture and fine detail in pores and facial hair. Skin tones are perfectly natural throughout and black levels are dark and true. All in all, Forrest Gump delivers everything a film fan could want in a high definition transfer; it's a wonderful effort from Paramount.


Forrest Gump Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Just as good -- if not better -- than the video presentation is Forrest Gump's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Generally, Forrest Gump is a dialogue-heavy film with little room for aggressive and loud sound effects, but in those few moments where the track comes alive, is excels and proves itself just as good as anything else out there. The track does enjoy a few good directional effects early on, for instance a bicycle clacking across the front half of the soundstage as several troublemakers chase a young Forrest. A rainstorm in chapter four is subtly but pleasantly engrossing, though the heavy rain as presented in the Vietnam sequence far surpasses what comes before it. Said Vietnam scenes deliver the highlight of the track. The first shot of a chopper flying overhead delivers thunderous bass as the rotors tear through the sky, but it is when the firefight begins that even seasoned Blu-ray Action movie listeners will have their jaws falling on the floor as what is now arguably the reference-quality action sequence plays out. Explosions deliver a tremendous wallop, bullets zips all around the soundstage, gunfire erupts from every corner, and incoming artillery rounds pierce the soundstage with startling clarity. It's as well done as the Omaha Beach scene in Saving Private Ryan, and if that scene sounds this good when it eventually comes to Blu-ray (as a Sapphire series release, perhaps?), listeners will be in for a sonic treat for the ages. Later in the film, a ferocious thunderstorm at sea in chapter 13 features the sensation of being in the midst of a hurricane as waves pound on the ship's hull, effectively turning the listening area into a drenched shrimp boat deck. Outside these segments, Forrest Gump features minimal surround sound usage, though it does deliver plenty of atmospheric effects nicely. Music -- whether the score or the many popular songs scattered about the film -- sound exceptionally crisp and clear throughout the entire range. Rounded out by strong dialogue reproduction, Forrest Gump makes for one of the best soundtracks yet on Blu-ray. As an addendum to this section of the review, it seems as if there is virtually no surround activity. Though the above-referenced "Vietnam" and "hurricane" scenes are loud, aggressive, and abundantly clear, and listening at normal volume and from the normal seated position creates the sense of a more immersive environment than there really is. With ear directly in front of the back speakers, it appears there is, in reality, no surround activity during these scenes. Said scenes remain loud, impressive, and engaging, and the track still enjoys pinpoint clarity here and throughout.
