J. Edgar

 (2011)

J. Edgar Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

As the face of law enforcement in the US for almost 50 years, J. Edgar Hoover was feared and admired, reviled and revered. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life.

For more about J. Edgar and the J. Edgar Blu-ray release, see J. Edgar Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Armie Hammer, Naomi Watts, Josh Hamilton, Geoff Pierson, Gunner Wright
Director: Clint Eastwood

J. Edgar Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

J. Edgar's 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation is a stark, almost monochromatic affair, but, by and large, it's true to Eastwood and cinematographer Tom Stern's intentions. Colors are often quashed in the process, primaries are nearly bleached out of existence and black levels have been cranked up to eleven. The image, though, is crisp and consistent, and encode-born crush isn't an issue. Detail is quite refined, with cleanly resolved fine textures, well-defined edges, and revealing closeups. It proves too revealing on occasion -- DiCaprio's makeup and prosthetics make for a convincing Old Man Hoover; Hammer's rubbery full-face mask, meanwhile, makes the poor actor look as if he stepped out of the climax of Drive -- but by no fault of the encode itself. If anything, many a detail is lost forever in the shadows. Most, if not all of this loss is attributable to Eastwood and Stern's color grade, but I couldn't shake the nagging feeling that a bit more detail was apparent in the film's theatrical presentation, leaving me to wonder if J. Edgar is yet another new Warner release in which contrast has been boosted after the fact. Fortunately, significant artifacting, banding, aliasing, ringing, smearing and other crimes of the Blu-ray state are nowhere to be found, and the encode is as striking as it is proficient.


J. Edgar Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

J. Edgar's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is as cautious, calculating and secretive as you'd expect a lossless mix accompanying a biopic of Hoover's life to be, and nothing escapes its pursuit. Dialogue is clear, intelligible and naturally grounded in the soundscape, and Hoover's speeches to his recruits, testimonies before Congress, and inner-office outbursts and tirades are particularly punchy and powerful. LFE output, though rightfully reserved on many an occasion, is bold and brutal, and rear speaker activity, also restrained whenever necessary, is immersive and convincing. Early in the film, a bomb explodes just outside of a house, shaking the floor as the windows of a house shatter and send glass scattering across the soundfield. Later, Hoover's assault on the mob features a flurry of aggressive activity, all showcased wonderfully with precise directionality, smooth cross-channel movement, and notable dynamics. Eastwood's original music is given plenty of time to shine as well, even though it often favors light, lonely melodies above anything more assertive. All in all, J. Edgar sounds every bit as good as it should. Warner's lossless track won't exactly wake the neighbors, but it won't leave audiophiles wanting either.
