Gridiron Gang

 (2006)

Gridiron Gang Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stars in this gritty and inspirational movie based on a true story of a group of teenage delinquents given a second chance to redeem themselves by playing football. Sean Porter (Johnson) is a frustrated juvenile probation officer. Most of the kids in his detention camp are either sent back to prison once they leave or meet a violent end when they return to the streets. Desperately looking for a way to make a difference, he and his co-worker Malcolm Moore devise a plan to teach discipline and responsibility through the game of football. But with only four weeks before the start of the season, Porter must overcome insurmountable odds to put together a competitive team. It's a season that will test their minds, spirit, and bodies as Porter teaches his players the principles of good character, strength through resiliency, and genuine respect for one another.

Gridiron Gang Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sony presents Gridiron Gang in its original 2.40:1 aspect ratio. This 1080p presentation is one of the finer transfers to date on Blu-ray. The film seems to be shot in a pseudo-documentary "light" approach with some slightly shaky handheld camera work complete with some rapid but small zooms. It's noticeable but not distracting and I felt it added a nice feel to the realism of the movie, almost as if we were a participant in the film. Some viewers may be turned off by some grain that is present throughout, especially in darker scenes, but worry not. This disc is simply reproducing what you'd see with the original film stock, and the result is magnificent. Black levels are very good. There are some borderline scenes where blacks are a tad crushed and some finer detail in dark scenes is lost, but the disc generally handles these instances very well and there is no major problems in this regard. The image overall is a stunner. As the movie begins, we are treated to a fairly drab color scheme, mostly inside the dormitory and on the practice field. However, once the first game is played, the lush greens of the gridiron and the vibrant hues of the uniforms really strike the viewer with high detail, sharpness, and cleanliness. Colors are rich and accurate, and there is no color bleeding to be seen. Flesh tones too appear natural with close attention to high detail in close-ups. The image is very sharp and crisp without resorting to edge enhancement. This is a fine transfer from Sony and is one of the many aspects that makes this Blu-ray version of Gridiron Gang a champion.


Gridiron Gang Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Sony has one again provided for your listening pleasure an uncompressed PCM 5.1 soundtrack running at 4.6 Mbps. The result is a robust and enthralling sonic experience that is one of the best the format has to offer. Early on in the film one may think that this is a pretty run of the mill affair. It's mostly dialogue save for a shooting, but the film takes off once cleats hit turf for the Mustang's first game of the season. The first thing you'll hear is the incredibly lifelike crowd noises. Cheers and screams fill the room and surround you, practically putting you in the bleachers. Once the game starts, however, you may want to strap on some shoulder pads and get ready for some hard, and I do mean hard hits that come into your living room. The sounds of shoulder pads crashing, bones crunching, and bodies slamming into the turf makes for an almost painful listening experience, but painful in a good way. You'll swear you're in the middle of the action and the only thing that will keep you firmly entrenched in reality is that you'll walk away from the movie without any bruises, dislocated fingers, or broken bones. It's powerful stuff to be sure and demonstrates the vital importance of a powerful high definition sound experience. Blu-ray offers it almost as a rule, others generally do not. Outside of the games, dialogue is clear, natural, and never drowned. Bass is used to good effect, and surrounds are active, adding to the atmosphere and enveloping nature of the track. If you love football, this movie, or both, and you currently are not equipped to play uncompressed PCM tracks, this disc is as good a reason as any to upgrade your system.
