Glory

 (1989)

Glory Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The heart-stopping story of the first black regiment to fight for the North in the Civil War, Glory stars Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman. Broderick and Elwes are the idealistic young Bostonians who lead the regiment; Freeman is the inspirational sergeant who unites the troops; and Denzel Washington, in an Oscar-winning performance (1989, Best Supporting Actor), is the runaway slave who embodies the indomitable spirit of the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts.

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

Starring: Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman, Cary Elwes, Cliff De Young, Andre Braugher
Director: Edward Zwick

Glory Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Glory debuts on Blu-ray with a high quality 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Though the film often sports a somewhat hazy, faded appearance, the transfer reflects the intended look and sparkles in context. Battlefield smoke and drab colors occasionally mask fine detail, but the transfer nevertheless exhibits a wonderful film-like appearance. A generally heavy layer of film grain enhances the experience, and though the transfer sees some noise over bright backgrounds and the occasional speckle, it nevertheless recalls a nicely-rendered theatrical presentation. The transfer enjoys a fair amount of depth and detail in background objects. Likewise, close-up shots showcase an adequate level of detail in the uniforms, character faces, the brick façades and the wooden crates and barrels seen throughout the picture, and the sandy South Carolina beaches seen at the end of the film. Generally, the image is sharp, though several scenes exhibit a hint of softness that lends a bit of a surreal feel to them. The film features varying color schemes, parts of the film appearing almost monochromatic while others see vibrant reds and blues on the flags or greens that make up the grasses lining the fields of Antietam. Flesh tones and black levels don't disappoint. Glory is not a vibrant or abundantly colorful picture, but this Blu-ray presentation highly impresses thanks to its film-like presentation and faithfulness to the source.


Glory Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Glory comes alive on Blu-ray with a well-crafted Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Explosions pack a wallop, some a bit more clear than others, with some sounding more like a jumbled mess of sound. Nevertheless, the track generally impresses. Artillery fire screams from one side of the soundstage to another, and the power of musket volleys penetrates the listening area and creates a terrifying sensation that brings the War to vivid life. After the battle of Antietam, the moans and cries of wounded men populate the listening area, accompanied by a slew of subtle sound effects heard off in the distance that never sounded so clear as they do here. Indeed, atmospherics impress throughout. The chatter and clanking of silverware in a scene in chapter three or a thunderstorm in chapter four that completely envelops the soundstage adds realism to the mix. The period wartime music, particularly the percussion section of the regiment's marching band, plays nicely all across the front soundstage with a fair amount of heft in support. Likewise, James Horner's score has never sounded better, both the military beats and the lighter, more angelic notes pouring from the speakers with pinpoint precision throughout the entire dynamic range. Dialogue, while generally strong, occasionally plays as a bit muffled. On the whole, though, Glory sounds great, easily the best the film has ever played for home viewing.
