Metropolis

 (1927)

Metropolis Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A futuristic look at the schism created in mankind as industrialization and technological advancement serves to alienate the humans from one another. People are divided into two groups: the thinkers--who make plans, yet don't know how to operate machinery, and the workers--who forward production without having any overview vision. Completely separate, neither group is complete; however, together they make a whole. When one man, a "thinker," dares to journey to the underground, where the workers 'slave away,' he's surprised at what he sees.

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

Starring: Alfred Abel, Gustav Fröhlich, Rudolf Klein-Rogge, Brigitte Helm, Theodor Loos, Erwin Biswanger
Director: Fritz Lang

Metropolis Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sourced from one of the few remaining prints of Giorgio Moroder's version of the film, this 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer isn't nearly as pristine as the immaculately restored Complete Metropolis that Kino released last year. That said, I don't think anyone expected otherwise, and besides—taken on its own merits, this edition looks fairly good for an 85-year-old silent movie patched together from numerous different prints. Damage and debris are somewhat heightened here—there are near-constant scratches and flecks—but your eyes quickly adjust and you stop noticing the age-related wear and tear after awhile. The Moroder version skipped the DVD generation because of rights issues, so if your last memory of it is on VHS or LaserDisc, you're in for an enormous leap in picture quality. Clarity pales next to The Complete Metropolis, of course, but there's no doubt that this is a high definition transfer. The tinted color looks good as well, and although there are times when shadow detail is all but wiped out in certain darker scenes, contrast is pleasing and never overblown. Film grain remains natural, and there are no signs of edge enhancement or excessive compression problems.


Metropolis Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

This version of Metropolis is all about the music, so if that's what you've come for, you'll have no complaints with the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track included here. Moroder was a pioneer of synthesizer music and digital recording, and his contributions to the score sound great, with plenty of vibrancy, depth, and presence. The various pop songs have heft and clarity too, with deep, clean bass, searing synth lines, and crisp highs. The music is spread throughout the soundfield, taking up space in all channels, and the individual instruments are clearly defined in the mix. There are occasional sound effects, but nothing particularly striking or even necessary. The disc also includes an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo mix, which sounds a bit thinner overall but is still perfectly acceptable.
