Hamburger Hill

 (1987)

Hamburger Hill Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Vietnam, 1969. Hill 937. 10 days. 70% casualties. Those are the facts - this is the story. The men of Bravo Company are facing a battle that's all up hill...up Hamburger Hill. Fourteen war-weary soldiers are battling for a mud-covered mound of earth so named because it chews up soldiers like chopped meat. They are fighting for their country, their fellow soldiers and their lives. War is hell, but this is worse. HAMBURGER HILL tells it the way it was, the way it really was. It's a raw, gritty and totally unrelenting dramatic depiction of one of the fiercest battles of America's bloodiest war. Dodge the gunfire. Get caught behind enemy lines. Go into battle beside the brave young men who fought and died. Feel their desperation and futility. This happened. HAMBURGER HILL - war at its worst, men at their best.

Hamburger Hill Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, John Irvin's Hamburger Hill arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Lions Gate Home Entertainment UK.

The high-definition transfer has been struck from a dated source. As a result, fine object detail, clarity and contrast are fairly inconsistent. Many of the daylight scenes also contain a good dose of edge-enhancement. I also noticed quite a bit of digital noise during the darker scenes from the final third of the film. The color-scheme is pleasing, though blacks, greens, blues and browns are never as lush and well saturated as they could have been. Furthermore, while viewing the film, I noticed a great deal of flecks and small scratches; occasionally even dirt. On a positive side, there are no major stability issues to report in this review. To sum it all up, this is a fairly average looking high-definition transfer with quite a few minor issues. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" disc. Therefore, you mist have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Hamburger Hill Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Lions Gate Home Entertainment UK have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is not as aggressive as I expected it to be. Even during the battle scenes, surround activity is quite limited. The bass only occasionally comes alive and at times feels rather flat. The dialog is clean and stable but, understandably, not always crisp (especially during the battle scenes). Actually, I used the optional English SDH subtitles when I viewed the film. For the record, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review. All in all, I expected the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track to have a more flexible dynamic amplitude, as Hamburger Hill is a film that certainly deserves one.
