Jesus Christ Superstar

 (1973)

Jesus Christ Superstar Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

The Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice rock opera about the life and death of Christ is brought to the big-screen after success on Shaftesbury Avenue and Broadway. The story of Christ's (Ted Neely) last week on Earth is told by a group of travellers who arrive in modern-day Jerusalem on a tour bus. Events are seen from the perspective of Apostle Judas, who betrays Jesus to the Judaic religious leaders in return for thirty pieces of silver. Songs include 'I Don't Know How to Love Him', 'Hosanna', 'Herod's Song' and the now-famous theme tune.

For more about Jesus Christ Superstar and the Jesus Christ Superstar Blu-ray release, see Jesus Christ Superstar Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Director: Norman Jewison

Jesus Christ Superstar Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Jesus Christ Superstar is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal Studios with an VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 2.36:1. Since this is a Universal catalog release, why don't we just cut to the chase and ask the question which will be on most fans' minds: was excessive DNR applied? The answer, perhaps surprisingly, is no. The film retains a healthy amount of grain, especially noticeable in the wide vista shots where a lot of sky is present, as well as in the nighttime and dimly lit sequences. One might hope this is a case of Universal having "learned their lesson", but my personal hunch is they just didn't think this release was "important" enough to "improve" it. The image here boasts decent fine detail, especially in close-ups, though the softness that has been attendant in every home video release is still evident, though somewhat mitigated. There is slightly more softness to some of the extreme wide shots. Colors are a bit on the anemic side at times but generally accurate looking. There is some very minor ringing that is especially noticeable when characters are outside.


Jesus Christ Superstar Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Jesus Christ Superstar features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 that more than adequately recreates the theatrical exhibition's four track stereo soundtrack. Voices are very well mixed if perhaps a bit too far forward at times and there's some wide stereo separation that's evident from the first moments of the Overture. Fidelity is excellent and dynamic range is fairly wide.
