Gettysburg: The Battle and the Address

 (TV) (2008)

Gettysburg: The Battle and the Address Blu-ray offers decent video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Through dramatic reenactments and computer graphics, viewers can closely examine the Battle of Gettysburg, which was the bloodiest confrontation of the Civil War, as well as President Abraham Lincoln's unforgettable speech, the Gettysburg Address. Not only does this historical documentary impressively recreate each event, it also clearly explains their significance within the context of the nation's bloodiest war.

For more about Gettysburg: The Battle and the Address and the Gettysburg: The Battle and the Address Blu-ray release, see Gettysburg: The Battle and the Address Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.



Gettysburg: The Battle and the Address Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Both The Battle That Changed America and The Speech That Saved America feature 1080i/AVC-encoded transfers of source material that was mostly shot on high definition video. While definitely faring better than a typical cable broadcast, there are some odd anomalies that keep the two programs from looking their best. During several of the landscape shots of the battlefield, you can observe some sort of rolling motion artifact that makes the image pulse and flicker unnaturally. I'm not sure what the cause is here, but it's definitely distracting enough to mention. Although banding and macroblocking don't appear to be concerns, you will spot occasional aliasing and shimmer, especially on close parallel lines. Overall clarity is mixed. The "talking head" interview sequences look best—facial textures and details are nicely defined—but some of the footage of the reenactments gets noticeably soft from time to time. Likewise, the interviews feature very natural color—saturated, but not overly vivid—while the battlefield scenes sometimes look slightly tweaked and stylized. Of course, I don't think I need to say anything else about the freakish CGI Abraham Lincoln.


Gettysburg: The Battle and the Address Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

There are two audio options for each program, a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround track and a 2.0 stereo mixdown. Both are pretty typical for TV documentaries—that is, you shouldn't expect a sweeping dynamic range or intense sound design—but they serve their purpose. If you have surround sound capabilities, you'll definitely want to go with the 5.1 track, as some attempt has been made to give the battle sequences immersive presence. Gunshots pop and zing between channels, cannons roar with authority, and in the less frantic moments, you'll hear wind and birds and other quiet natural noises. Saving Private Ryan this ain't, but it all sounds good for what it is. The programs are accompanied by Americana scores, which are also bled into the rear channels for a fairly full soundfield. The dialogue in the narration, interviews, and reenactment sequences is perfectly balanced in the mix and easy to understand. English subtitles are available in easy to read white lettering.
