Quo Vadis Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Quo Vadis debuts on Blu-ray with a relatively impressive 1080p/VC-1 transfer (framed at 1.33:1) that rights the technical wrongs of Warner's recent DVD release. The film's newly-minted high definition palette is far more natural and attractive than its standard definition counterpart, featuring bold primaries, more realistic skintones, and deeper blacks. Delineation is also improved, showcasing slightly more shadow detail than ever before. Likewise, texture clarity and edge definition are sharper and more refined, leaving the presentation without any significant flaws (aside from the inherent limitations of its now-sixty-year-old source). Fleeting softness and print damage still pop up from time to time, but artifacting, noise, banding, and crush have been kept to a minimum. Lingering edge enhancement appears as well, but should go somewhat unnoticed by anyone watching the film on a screen smaller than 100 inches. All things considered, it's a polished presentation that doesn't look artificial, overworked, or unfaithful to its roots.

Quo Vadis doesn't quite offer the sort of masterful restoration rightfully granted to other notable Warner catalog releases (Casablanca and Blade Runner immediately spring to mind), but its video transfer should easily please fans of early '50s cinema and classic productions just the same.


Quo Vadis Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Purists like myself will probably appreciate Warner's Dolby Digital Mono presentation of the film's original audio -- its crisp dialogue, authentic single-channel sonics, and nostalgic sensibilities are refreshing at times -- but lossless junkies will frown at the studio's decision to forgo a 5.1 channel remix. As you might expect, LFE support is non-existent, the rear speakers are silent, and the mono track doesn't produce any sort of soundfield whatsoever. Moreover, treble tones are often thin and tinny, the film's musical score is continually overshadowed by an overactive soundscape, and low-end thooms are occasionally shrill. On a positive note, I also didn't have any lofty expectations to shatter. The simple fact that I was listening to a mono presentation made it easier to sink into the film without evaluating how faithful the sound designers were to the film. Ultimately, had Warner provided both a lossless audio option and an original mono mix, Quo Vadis fans would have had the best of both worlds. However, I also think it would be disingenuous to criticize the disc's producers for sticking to the film's 1951 aesthetics and LeRoy's production.
