On the Road

 (2012)

On the Road Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Brazilian director Walter Salles helms this adaptation of the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac that defined the Beat Generation. Sam Riley stars as Kerouac's self-styled protagonist, down-and-out intellectual Sal Paradise, who takes to the backroads of America with his free-spirited friend Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) in a frantic odyssey fuelled by jazz, poetry and drugs in search of the 'it' at the heart of life. Viggo Mortensen, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst and Amy Adams co-star.

For more about On the Road and the On the Road Blu-ray release, see On the Road Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Garrett Hedlund, Terrence Howard

On the Road Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.40:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Walter Salles' On the Road arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films-UK.

The presentation is impressive. Detail and clarity are very good. Despite the fact that different parts of the film were shot at different locations and under different conditions, image depth and fluidity are consistently pleasing. There is a wide range of well saturated but warm and natural colors. Depending on the location and lighting, there are different prominent colors - yellow, light blue, gray, etc. There are no traces of problematic lab corrections. The high-definition transfer is also free of serious compression anomalies. There is one sequence where I noticed very light banding, but its presence will not affect your viewing experience. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review. To sum it all up, the technical presentation is indeed very good, which is why I think that fans of On the Road are guaranteed to be pleased with the way the film looks in high-definition. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


On the Road Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (with some small portions of French). For the record, Lionsgate Films-UK have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The lossless track opens the film very well in all the right places. Some of the most impressive sequences are the ones where the jazz score becomes prominent. There are some sequences where subtle nature sounds also make an impression, but surround activity is quite modest. The dialog is always clean, very crisp, and very easy to follow. Additionally, there are no pops, audio dropouts, or serious distortions to report in this review.
