Enlisting the help of a young lieutenant (Farrell) in a brilliant plot against his captors, McNamara risks everything on a mission to free his men and change the outcome of the war.

Hart's War Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Hart's War arrived at the dawn of the Blu-ray era and was encoded via MPEG 2. The good news is, when this 2.35:1 1080p transfer is good, it is very good indeed. As you'll see from many of the screenshots included here, the bulk of the film is bathed in shades of cool blues and greens, and the Blu-ray supports that blanched palette admirably. Detail can be excellent, especially in the close-ups of faces, where every craggy crease on Willis' visage is completely evident. However, when this transfer is bad, it is horrible. The opening scenes are beset with such appalling edge enhancement and overarching line shimmer on such items as waving field of wheat, I almost wanted to turn the thing off in the first few minutes. The artifacting continued to raise its ugly head throughout the film, notably in scenes with backlighting, where such things as fence latticeworks clearly showed edge enhancement. This is a case of "cup half empty" or "cup half full," depending on your own individual tolerance for such issues. I found the artifacting distracting enough to seriously impact my enjoyment of at least some scenes in the film. Your mileage, of course, may vary.


Hart's War Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Luckily Hart's War's DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix at least partially makes up for the shoddiness of the video quality. I say partially because this is not a big, bombastic typical "war film." While the opening sequence where Hart is captured is wonderfully visceral, with zinging bullet sounds and explosions filling the surround channels and creating an admirably lifelike soundfield, the bulk of this film is quieter, dialogue driven material and therefore less likely to set your ears ablaze with "wow" moments. That said, this is a clear and clearly designed sound mix, with really excellent directionality and just enough surround use in ambient environmntal effects to craft a convincingly immersive experience. This comes not in the bombast of explosions (though there are a few of those), but in quieter effects like the "plop" of water dripping in Hart's first barren cell, or the sharp crack of footsteps through the frozen dawn of the POW camp. This really is a nicely subtle piece of soundmixing, perhaps too subtle for those expecting a knockout war movie experience.
