Gladiator

 (2000)

Gladiator Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

In the final days of Marcus Aurelius' reign, the aging emperor angers his son Commodus by making it known that he wants Maximus, a fearsome and respected Roman general, to be his successor. Power-hungry Commodus kills his father and orders the death of Maximus. But the latter flees, only to discover that his wife and child have been murdered by Commodus. Captured, Maximus is forced into slavery, where he is sold to Proximo, a former gladiator who serves as both mentor and slavemaster. Maximus trains as a gladiator in the arena, where his fame grows. He goes to Rome, intent on avenging the murder of his wife and son by killing the new emperor Commodus. Maximus has learned that the one power stronger than that of the emperor is the will of the people, and he knows he can only attain his revenge by becoming the greatest hero in all the empire.

Gladiator Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Better late than never. After much ado about Paramount's first Blu-ray release of Gladiator -- one littered with unsightly edge enhancement and digital scrubbing that left the image flat (not to mention with arrows and fireballs that magically disappeared mid-flight); absent a natural grain structure; and generally unattractive beside many other Blu-rays, including some of Paramount's other first-class offerings like Transformers, Iron Man, and fellow Sapphire Series release Braveheart -- the studio has re-issued Director Ridley Scott's Oscar-winning picture in a proper, beautifully filmic 1080p, 2.35:1 transfer that's sure win back fans to the film, the studio, and the Sapphire Series label. Best to leave the past where it belongs and not question why such a subpar transfer was used in the first place when the results with this fresh release are so positively striking, but the important thing is that Gladiator is now available to be seen as it was intended, and its sparkling "new" transfer does what Blu-ray does best: it yields a breathtaking image that seems straight off the theater screen, allowing viewers to see Gladiator in a state that more closely approximates the cinema experience and the innate quality of film versus the lessened quality of lower-resolution formats and, yes, harmfully scrubbed and digitally "enhanced" Blu-ray presentations.

Viewers familiar with Paramount's previous release will notice an immediate difference when this release of Gladiator begins. Aside from the absence of heavy digital scrubbing and overzealous edge enhancement run rampant, viewers may notice that this version of Gladiator takes on a much warmer tone; contrast has been altered a great deal between releases, and no longer does the film look quite as cold and uninviting as it did in the previous release, even in those harshly bright and sandy outdoor sequences. Even the picture's opening minutes during the battle in the cold, gray, war-torn forrest against the Germanic barbarians don't look quite as inhospitably cold as they did in the previous release. Even considering the differing contrast levels, the other changes between releases are readily identified. The egregious edge enhancement is gone; note the absence of thick halos around the circle of guards in the "Final Words" screenshot in this review versus its counterpart in the original release's review. Better yet, no longer does Gladiator look artificially smoothed over and, by extension, absent fine detail. This release enjoys superior texturing and depth to an almost unfathomable degree over the previous release; the differences are striking to say the least, and viewers will now note the finest nuanced scratches and dirt on armor; the natural texture of faces, pores, and wrinkles; and even the minute detailing on the golden wheat over which Maximus walks and grazes his hand in one scene.

In addition to the superior texture, detailing, and lack of obtrusive edge enhancement, Gladiator also sports fabulous blacks -- some of the richest, deepest, and most honest ever seen on a Blu-ray release -- and the accompanying shadow detail, too, is breathtakingly gorgeous. A scene between Maximus and Commodus in chapter four is a fantastic example of the transfer's exquisite blacks and rich shadowing. Detail in this dimly-lit sequence remains incredibly strong, too, with every pore on both characters' faces revealed almost to a fault. Almost any scene in a rather long stretch inside the shadowy, candle-lit interiors in the film's first act look marvelous and, even in the absence of better lighting, contend for the prize as the transfer's finest-looking stretch. The only real problem here is the presence of a handful of white speckles that pop up on occasion, but suffice it to say, this release of Gladiator is worthy of both the Sapphire Series label and the Blu-ray format; suddenly, Gladiator is reference material through-and-through, and this remastered release is easily one of 2010's finest.


Gladiator Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Though not the most earth-shattering, record-breaking, eardrum-busting mix out there, Gladiator's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is well above average across the board. The opening battle sequence sets the stage nicely. Arrows that fly through the soundstage during the picture's intense opening action sequence are accompanied by a continuous whoosh as they fly through the air towards their targets. Explosions pack a good wallop, and the general mayhem of the battle, which includes screaming soldiers and clanking swords, does well to place the listener in the midst of the carnage. Much like Braveheart, Gladiator reveals a superbly-nuanced presentation during the quieter segments. A brief scene taking place inside a carriage in chapter three features a fine sensation of being in the cart, with the wheels churning on a rough road outside, the carriage rattling about, and the sound of the horse galloping directly ahead. In chapter six, a breeze blows through Caesar's room and the structure seems to ever-so-slightly sway and creak as a result. As with most any action-heavy soundtrack, it's the little things during the less-intense moments that truly define the quality of the listen, and in that regard Gladiator doesn't disappoint. Still, the action segments feature a full-blown surround presence that places listeners in the arena and may even have them ducking for cover as weapons whirl and fighters maneuver in a virtually seamless 360-degree sound field that's the norm for every fight throughout. Rounded out by pitch-perfect dialogue reproduction, Gladiator sounds fantastic on Blu-ray.
