Ladder 49

 (2004)

Ladder 49 Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Baltimore firefighter Jack Morrison (Phoenix), making the transition from inexperienced rookie to seasoned veteran, struggles to cope with a risky, demanding job that often shortchanges his wife and kids. He relies on the support of his mentor and captain, Mike Kennedy (Travolta) and his second family — found in the brotherly bond between the men of the firehouse. But, when Jack becomes trapped in the worst blaze of his career, his life and the things he holds important — family, dignity, courage — come into focus. As his fellow firefighters of Ladder 49 do all they can to rescue him, Jack's life hangs in the balance.

Ladder 49 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Ladder 49 rolls onto Blu-ray with a nice-looking 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Though it sometimes looks flat and dim and features a few minor trouble spots, there's plenty here to like. It's not the stuff of Blu-ray legend, but Ladder 49 impresses through a pleasant film-like texture that's accentuated by a bit of film grain, which often appears more prominent over lighter colors. Generally, colors are rich and accurate, though flesh tones sometimes capture a slight red push. Bright red fire engines sparkle, and there's no sign of overly pronounced nor excessively dim hues in the film; they all appears pleasantly natural whether in the darker burning buildings or brighter daytime scenes. Fine object detail is fine but unremarkable next to superior Blu-ray discs. It handily beats standard definition material in terms of clarity and sharpness, and it captures plenty of small nuances, whether scratches and dents on a fire hydrant or the rough texturing of broken concrete and rubble. Blacks are fine, though in a few scenes they appear to absorb some finer details, and such scenes often coincide with the moments where the image appears at its flattest. Though there's the occasional spot and pop on the print, Disney's effort with Ladder 49 impresses far more often than not. Overall, this is a good transfer that delivers a nicely filmic presentation.


Ladder 49 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Ladder 49 bursts onto Blu-ray with a high-powered PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack. The highlight of the track clearly comes in the form of several large explosions that send a tremendous amount of power through the soundstage. The subwoofer will be tested throughout the film, and when played at reference volume, there's no mistaking the sheer power of the soundtrack. The low end's clarity and precision are no match for the finest Blu-ray has to offer -- found in films like Terminator Salvation and War of the Worlds -- but Disney's PCM track does far more than simply hurl wave after punishing wave of sound at the listener. Of course, there's plenty more to like about this track aside from the prodigious low end. The film's music -- courtesy of William Ross (Black Sheep) -- plays as big, spacious, smooth, and satisfying, and the track captures the score's nuances in both the larger action numbers and the smaller, more dramatic themes. The track never misses an opportunity to make full use of the 5.1 setup, consistently engaging the surrounds during both the picture's many firefighting action scenes and in the more reserved moments where the back channels become awash in atmospherics, particularly during several bar scenes where light background music, patron chatter, and clanking dishes bring the environment to life. Solidified by faultless dialogue reproduction, Ladder 49's uncompressed soundtrack both impresses and satisfies on every level.
