National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus

 (2011)

National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus Blu-ray delivers great video and poor audio, but overall it's a disappointing Blu-ray release

An Airplane!-style parody of recent sword-and-sandal films, centered on Troy's greatest general, Awesomest Maximus, who is intensely loyal to his father-in-law, King Looney, but isn't terribly bright. Goaded by his ambitious wife, the Princess Hottessa, Awesomest finds himself on a diplomatic mission to Greece that goes horribly awry, leading to a war in which he must face the seemingly undefeatable Greek warrior, Testiclees.

National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

TLAM was shot on the Red One digital camera by John Darbonne, whose credits are mostly short films and videos. All of the Red One system's virtues are on full display here, including clarity, detail and an absence of video noise. Still, given the quality of the movie itself, a distressed, "grindhouse" look might have been more appropriate. The effects work is fake and cheesy (whether intentionally or due to budgetary constraints is impossible to tell), and the sets look like they were made for standard definition TV. If the point of the hi-def photography's quality was to make a joke out of the production's low budget, it failed miserably. All it did was reveal an eyesore.


National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Now here's something you don't see anymore: a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack at a bitrate of 384 kbps. Pardon me while I time-travel back to 1997 and the birth of the DVD format, which pretty quickly upped the standard bitrate to 448 kbps. On Blu-ray the usual bitrate for DD is the maximum of 640 kbps, which, with all due respect to lossless purists, yields results that are generally indistinguishable from an uncompressed master.

What's going on? My guess is that Image knew what a stinker they had on their hands and cut the production budget for this title to the bare minimum, which included using the same data files for both the DVD and Blu-ray soundtracks. It isn't much of a loss. The sound editing is as cheesy as the visual effects. Surround information is limited to the occasional presence of water. The battlefield effects are non-existent, even when arrows fly, and there's never an attempt to create more of an environment than you'd get on a sketch comedy show. The dialogue is clear enough (unfortunately), and the score by Brian Glasgow (who's obviously trying to build his resume) goes in one ear and out the other.
