Rocky: The Undisputed Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Rocky (3/5)
Arriving on the same disc from the 2006 Blu-ray version of the film, nothing has changed about this lackluster 1080p/MPEG-2 transfer. Don't get me wrong, Rocky looks better than ever, but this is one film that calls out for restoration, and a cleaner, more vivid print would go a long way in getting Rocky back in fighting form. Dull is a good way to describe the transfer, as colors seem weak (except for reds), textures are frequently soft, and black levels sometimes obscure detail. This is a hard film to judge, however, as a lot of these traits do seem to stem from the source material. That said, as it was filmed on location in Philly's sagging south side, Rocky has a wonderful late 1970's grit to it, and the grain on display in this transfer is characteristic of its time and serves to heighten the film's sordid, seedy look. Director John Avildsen also uses some pleasingly shallow depth of field in many scenes, giving the picture a dreamy, look-back-in-time sense of depth.

Rocky II (3.5/5)
Those hoping for a proper restoration of Rocky II may be disappointed here, but the film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer easily beats the MPEG-2 treatment of the first Rocky. Really, the only thing that keeps this transfer from being a true contender is the nearly non-stop presence of tiny white flecks that pepper the print. It's definitely distracting at times, and I feel like I almost had to train my eyes to overlook them. Still, if you can get past the print damage, Rocky II offers better sharpness and overall clarity than the first film. The climactic fight with Apollo Creed looks especially fantastic, with strong facial detail in close-ups, and the slow- motion shots reveling in the tiniest globules of flying spit and sweat. Black levels are strong and stable without crushing too much detail, skin tones are natural throughout, and colors seem more vivid—primaries in particular, like Rocky's yellow robe or Adrian's bright red coat. The film's grain structure remains intact, and aside from a few insert shots that look like they were filmed using a different stock, the grain is fine and unobtrusive. And placed on a 50 GB disc with room to spare, Rocky II shows no signs of any overt technical limitations.

Rocky III (3.5/5)
Rocky III's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is one of the more inconsistent of the batch. There are times—like the sweaty close-ups of Mr. T's glowering face—where the image is remarkably detailed, where each pore and bead of sweat is finely rendered and the picture has great sense of depth and presence. Then you'll have the occasional soft shot, with unresolved textures, slightly blurry edges, and a flatter look. There are times when the film's grain structure is fine and minimal, but others when swarms of analog noise buzz over the picture, softening everything. While the white specks aren't nearly as persistent as they are in the first two films, they still crop up in certain scenes, most noticeably during Mick's funeral service. Color rendition is about the same as it is in the second film, with the realistic palette sporting bold primaries and accurate skin tones. There are a few intentionally over-dark scenes, but black levels hold up well. The fight sequences were shot with some kind of diffusion filter—it makes soft criss-crossed diagonal lines appear on screen—and while it seems like a strange choice, it's not off-putting at all. Once again, there are no apparent technical issues.

Rocky IV (4/5)
With a sharper, more vivid, more detailed appearance, Rocky IV's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is the first of the set to really impress. Granted, part of this has to do with the slightly newer source material—from 1985—but nonetheless, this is an excellent transfer. When we see Apollo Creed in his swimming pool, the picture is crisp and colorful; the water is a bright, edges look sharp without evidence of artificial enhancement, and the image has a satisfying presence. These traits keep up throughout the film. The fight between Drago and Creed is a red, white, and blue spectacle, the Russian landscape is appropriately bleak, and the match on Drago's home turf is full of drab military green contrasted against fiery Stalinist red. Black levels are deep and contrast is nicely tuned. Like the previous films, there are varying levels of grain, but here the print itself is in much better condition, with hardly any white specks at all. I did notice a few anomalies, though they shouldn't present any major distractions. During Apollo's funeral, there's some artificial blurring that creates a haze over two men standing in the background, and I can't quite explain why it's there. There's also some minor contrast wavering in a few scenes, and the aerial shots of Rocky climbing the mountain have a bright streak running down the right side of the frame. All in all, though, I liked the look of Rocky IV.

Rocky V (3.5/5)
Rocky V's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer seems to be slight step back from the look of Rocky IV, but this is due—in part—to the nature of the story itself. With Rocky returning to his Philly roots, the environments are much dingier, with less color and more grit. Overall, the image seems a bit softer than that of the previous installment. The scene that takes place in Rocky's lawyer's office looks dull, with unresolved lines and hazy textures. There are shots like this throughout the film—obviously source related and not a transfer issue, but it's worth noting. Similarly, grain levels spike occasionally, and there are a few insert shots that are downright noisy. That said, the film still looks good as a whole. Black levels are tight, contrast is nicely balanced, and the movie has its moments of outstanding clarity. The street brawl with Tommy Gunn, in particular, features great detail and some bold splashes of color.

Rocky Balboa (5/5)
Rocky Balboa arrives on the same Blu-ray disc that was put out by Sony Pictures in 2007, and as owners of that release will attest, the film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is visually stunning, with superlative clarity, a hyper-vivid aesthetic, and a faultless technical presentation. Sylvester Stallone shoots the first three-quarters of the film with a high-contrast stock and furthers the look with extremely effective post-production color toning. The palette is both stark and vivid, with an almost cross-processed appearance that amplifies blue tones and gives highlights a pleasing, slightly off-white cast. The grain is gritty but thin, black levels are ultra- inky, and the image is exceptionally detailed throughout. When the film moves to the Rocky's final fight, the image switches to an equally impressive high definition video look, echoing what you'd normally see on a cable pay-per-view broadcast, but looking much more meticulously clear. I honestly can't drum up any complaints about this transfer; it's true to Sly's directorial intent, it's razor sharp, and it's simply beautiful to behold on a large screen.

Rocky: The Undisputed Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Rocky (3/5)
Rocky steps into the HD home theater ring wearing a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that, like its video quality, lacks polish and shine. While sounding obviously fuller than the original mono track (which is also included), the 5.1 mix lacks bottom end density and comes off hollow and thin. It does give the film some added directionality—particularly with trains passing on the tracks overhead and street kids singing around barrel fires—but if it's a choice between immersion and fidelity here, I'd rather have a more balanced, crisper sound. Voices are strong in the mix, but do sound occasionally lost and muffled; just listen to the scene with Rocky and Paulie in the meat packing plant. Foley sound effects and looped-in dialogue also have an obvious artificial quality at times, particularly punches, which should be meat-bruising and bone-cracking, but sound more brittle than a bundle of cracked sticks. The only time the audio track really gets to boom is during the "Gonna Fly" theme, but even here it seems weaker than it could be.

Rocky II (3.5/5)
In some ways, Rocky II's DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround track is unremarkable; there are no real moments of audio bliss but neither does the film have any sonic slip-ups. Bill Conti's athletic score is the highlight here, with inspirational strings and horn lines that make me want to get off the couch and do some shadow boxing. The music is full and detailed, mostly occupying the front channels but also bleeding into the rears, where it's joined by some occasional environmental ambience. There are factory sounds in the meat-packing plant, the shuffles and blows of boxers in training at the Golden Gloves club, and, of course, plenty of audience cheering during the final fight. There are also two or three panning effects, like trains passing between speakers, but nothing noteworthy. Dialogue is clear and easily understood—aside from some of Stallone's mumblings—and the foley sound effects are quite a bit better this time around. On a side note, there's no menu music at all for Rocky II (or III, IV, and V), which seems strange at first.

Rocky III (3.5/5)
Like the film's picture quality, Rocky III's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is somewhat inconsistent. The music, including generous use of "Gonna Fly" and "Eye of the Tiger," sounds the same as always—full, interspersed throughout the channels, slightly weighted toward the mid-to-high part of the range, but never brash. The dialogue is generally prioritized well, but there are a few instances when lines sound low in the mix or slightly muffled. I'm thinking specifically of the charity match with Hulk Hogan scene. Still, nothing too distracting. I did, however, notice a slight hiss than runs through two or three scenes in the rear channels. It's not readily apparent—you'd have to actively listen for it—but it seems strange, since there's nothing in those scenes that should be making a hissing noise. Also, at the 48:03 mark there's a crackle that doesn't seem likely to be part of the intentional sound design. In terms of immersion and rear channel usage, Rocky III is about the same as the second film; there's some modest ambience to fill out the soundfield and a few discrete effects, but nothing to shout about.

Rocky IV (4/5)
In most ways, Rocky IV's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is similar to those of the previous four films; there's an adequate amount of ambience in the rear channels, dialogue is easily discernable, and the sound effects are effective, if somewhat stocky. Where Rocky IV differs though, is in a slightly broadened, more expansive overall sound, with more detail and depth. The previous films don't have much in terms of bass response, but part IV features some occasional LFE engagement and a more earthy low-end presence throughout. The film's many pop songs make good use of this wider spectrum, from the ubiquitous "Eye of the Tiger" to James Brown's "Living in America" and John Cafferty's "Hearts on Fire." If a Rocky film can't get you amped up—ironically or otherwise—I'm not sure anything can.

Rocky V (4/5)
While Rocky V's picture quality is somewhat mixed, the film's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is solid throughout, with a pumped-up presence that's evident from first strains of music that play over the opening montage. Bill Conti's classic cues and themes for Rocky are only sparsely used here, though, with most of the soundtrack consisting of extremely dated hip- hop (hello MC Hammer). Still, dated or not, the music sounds great, with generous bass and a clear mid-to-high range. The film's soundfield too is filled out nicely, with subtle ambient sounds and trains rattling between the rear channels. Dialogue is always easily understood and many of the sound effects are punchier this time around (sorry, I honestly didn't mean for that to be a pun), especially some of Tommy Gunn's forceful body blows. The film's most impressive audio sequence is the street fight between Gunn and Rocky, which is loud and features great sound design during Rocky's brain trauma-induced internal vision.

Rocky Balboa (5/5)
As I previously mentioned, this is the same disc put out by Sony Pictures in 2007, and the film's uncompressed PCM 5.1 surround track is as impressive as always. The film is dialogue-driven up until Rocky's characteristic training montage, and voices are reproduced with high fidelity and perfectly balanced in the mix. The rear channels are nearly always alive with subtle but enveloping ambience, from the street sounds of Philly to the cheering crowds that'll make you feel like you're right there watching the match. Bill Conti's classic themes are bigger and bolder than ever here, with more potent bass and a clear high-end register. For most of the big fight, Sly sticks with realistic sound design—the punches sound natural—but when the match goes into poeticized montage mode, blows land with concussive LFE force. Feel free to pump up the volume on your receiver and let this one fly.
