Mysterious Island

 (1961)

Mysterious Island Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A small, motley group of soldiers and civilians flee the 1865 siege of Richmond via a hot air balloon, and end up on an isolated island crawling with over-sized crabs, birds, and bees. Even more astonishing, they discover three other humans inhabiting the island: two shipwrecked women and the illustrious, long-lost Captain Nemo. Based on the 1870 novel by Jules Verne.

For more about Mysterious Island and the Mysterious Island Blu-ray release, see Mysterious Island Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Mysterious Island Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Mysterious Island is presented on Blu-ray courtesty of Twilight Time with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.67:1. This second Blu-ray release by Twilight Time, and the first of their Blu-ray titles licensed from Columbia, looks largely spectacular in high definition, certainly heads and shoulders above any previous home video release of this title. The bulk of the film is incredibly colorful, sharp and extremely well detailed. (In one of the odd things I noticed for the first time after having seen this film countless times through the years, the film's credits themselves list the film as having been shot in Technicolor, while quite a bit of the promotional material state it's in Eastmancolor by Pathé, though in those days Technicolor often processed dye transfers from Eastmancolor negatives, so perhaps that's the case here, and I'd be delighted to hear from anyone who knows for sure). Be that as it may, colors are incredibly robust and beautifully saturated throughout the film. As is to be expected, the opticals featuring Harryhausen's special effects work look quite soft by comparison with the rest of the film, with the added grain and occasionally dirt that the optical printing process brings with it, and this film is fairly grainy even in non-effects sequences. There are also a couple of odd, non-effects, anomalies where the image is noticeably softer and grainier than the bulk of the film, almost as if 16mm elements had been interpolated, but these moments are very brief and overall not a major distraction from what is a gorgeous and precise looking transfer.


Mysterious Island Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Mysterious Island has three audio options if you include the supplemental isolated score (one of the hallmarks, and a much appreciated one by fans of great film music, of the Twilight Time releases). The two dialogue options are the original mono track presented in DTS-HD Master Audio, as well as a nicely, if sparsely, immersive DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 repurposing. The 5.1 re-do isn't overly gimmicky, though I personally didn't like the added boxiness of Craig's narration. Discrete channelization is used quite effectively in several sequences, including the opening battle and storm segments, as well as some of the special effects set pieces. The mono track sounds surprisingly spry in this DTS-HD Master Audio rendering, and both tracks offer some lustrous low end, courtesy of both Bernard Herrmann's brilliant score and some fantastic sound effects. Fidelity is very strong and dynamic range is exceptional on both of the DTS tracks.
