Raging Bull

 (1980)

Raging Bull Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The story of Jake LaMotta, a former middlweight boxing champion, whose reputation for tenacity and success in the ring was offset by his troubled domestic life: full of rage, jealousy, and suspicion--particulary towards his wife and manager/brother--which, in the end, left him destitute, alone, and seeking redemption.

For more about Raging Bull and the Raging Bull Blu-ray release, see Raging Bull Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Robert De Niro, Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci, Frank Vincent, Nicholas Colasanto, Theresa Saldana
Director: Martin Scorsese

Raging Bull Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

As far as I can tell, the 1080p/AVC encode used for this 30th Anniversary Edition is the same transfer that accompanied Raging Bull's February 2009 Blu-ray release. And while I still think this is an excellent, often stunning transfer, many of you probably recall hearing complaints about a thin translucent stripe—slightly brighter than the rest of the image—that would occasionally appear on the right side of the screen. Some people could see it, others couldn't. I'm here to report that the stripe is present on this edition, but—and this is important—it's barely and rarely, if ever, noticeable. In fact, during my initial viewing of the film, I didn't spot it once; I had to pause the movie during certain darker sequences and bump up the gamma and brightness settings on my screen to ridiculous levels to even make it visible. I suspect that if your TV is reasonably calibrated—that is, not on "store display" mode or otherwise boosted—you probably won't ever even notice the issue. I did manage to capture a screenshot of the stripe—see above—but as you can tell, it's quite hard to make out. (Note that the screenshots in our reviews are pure captures of the digital info from the disc. They aren't routed through a TV first or tampered with on a computer. What you see is what you get, essentially, although the shots might obviously look different on your television depending on your calibration settings.) I say all of that to say this: I don't know where the stripe comes from—whether it was somehow on the negative itself (unlikely) or was introduced somewhere in the transfer/encode process—but it shouldn't be a problem if you keep your brightness settings at a normal level.

It would be a shame to let this minor issue hold you back from buying this disc, as Raging Bull looks simply beautiful on Blu-ray. The film's stark, evocative cinematography has never looked better—the grain structure is rich and untouched by DNR, clarity is strong, and the black and white gradation is perfectly balanced, with deep, dense shadows, crisp but rarely overblown whites, and a smooth gradient of grays. Basically, you get a sense that the image is true-to-source, and while the picture isn't the sharpest you've ever seen—it's really not meant to be—there's plenty of fine detail visible in the actors' faces, hair, and period clothing. Likewise, there are no compression issues or digital mishaps to spoil the mood. Well, except for that barely-there stripe. And really, if your screen is set up properly, you'll probably never even see it.


Raging Bull Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I have no reservations at all about the film's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which does a fine job reproducing Scorsese's very deliberate, jarring, and sometimes impressionistic sound design. Fight scenes are the most surreal; as the director's signature flashbulbs pop and crackle with exaggerated intensity and blow after blow lands with the thick, leather-on-skin pummeling sound of punching gloves, other noises are intentionally reduced to a low murmur, effectively putting us inside Jake La Motta's tunnel-visioned consciousness. The rear channels are only sparsely and selectively used, but you will hear airy New York City ambience, the light drizzle of rain, and the cheers and jeers of the crowd when called for. All of this is accompanied by a memorable soundtrack of classical pieces and period tunes, and the music sounds excellent, with clarity and substantial presence. Dialogue does occasionally seem a bit low out of the center channel, but never to the point of distraction or unintelligibility. A variety of subtitle options are available, and they appear in white, easy to read lettering.
