Romeo + Juliet

 (1996)

Romeo + Juliet Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Shakespeare's play is transferred to the modern urban backdrop of Verona Beach, California. The Montague and Capulet families are embroiled in a long-running feud. When Romeo, a Montague, attends a Capulet ball in disguise, he falls in love with the beautiful Juliet. Although already engaged to Dave Paris, whom she does not love, Juliet vows to marry Romeo. They ask the kindly Father Laurence to perform the ceremony in secret, but bloodshed and tragedy threaten the couple's future together.

For more about Romeo + Juliet and the Romeo + Juliet Blu-ray release, see Romeo + Juliet Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Romeo + Juliet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Given the fact that Romeo + Juliet is so hyperkinetically colorful, it's no surprise that the film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is grade-A eye candy. In fact, I'd have to say this high definition reproduction of Romeo + Juliet ranks among the very best transfers of catalog titles from the mid-to-late-1990s, right up there with Boogie Nights and Fight Club. From the outset of the film—the gas station scene—you know you're in for a visual treat, as we're immediately shown the fiercely yellow car and vibrant Hawaiian shirts of the Montague boys. Color is rich and saturated throughout, from the fireworks that burst over Sycamore Grove and the multi-hued extravaganza of the Capulet party, to the aquamarine blues of the pool scene and the warm expanse of candles that surround Juliet on her faked-deathbed. Likewise, black levels are almost always satisfyingly deep, contrast is strong, and the image has a commendable sense of depth. Not to be outdone, clarity is excellent; softness settles in to a few shots— usually the result of loose focusing during handheld sequences—but most of the film is impressively crisp without showing any signs of edge enhancement. Facial detail is refined, as you'd expect, but the most telling aspect of the picture's sharpness is the texture apparent in the extravagant costume design. (Just check out the rippled metal and individual links of armor on Romeo's chain-mail party outfit.) Most importantly, there's been no DNR tampering or excessive filtering—grain is entirely natural. I spotted a brief instance of aliasing on the parallel lines of a car's bumper, but otherwise, there are no other outstanding anomalies. I'd say this transfer is just about perfect.


Romeo + Juliet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Just as adept is Romeo + Juliet's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix, which handles the film's sound design and soundtrack—especially— with clarity, immersion, and dynamic oomph. The various pop/operatic music you hear throughout the film sounds brilliant; bass is deep and grounded, highs are clean, and the soundfield has a wide, open expanse that gives plenty of room for the various instruments to take up distinct positions in the 5.1 presentation. The rear channels are also often occupied by ambience and effects, like wind and rain, guns popping off with cross-channel intensity, and the rocket blasts and chime-like tinkles during the fireworks display. Towards the end, when the shootouts become more frequent and police helicopters hover above, looking for the banished Romeo, the LFE channel even gets to exert some serious muscle. Finally, dialogue is perfectly prioritized, broadcast cleanly from the center channel. Stick around for the credits to hear Radiohead's creepy freakout love song, "Exit Music (For A Film)."
