Shark! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shark! is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Perhaps a little surprisingly, once a few niggling concerns are overcome, things look rather good in this high definition presentation. While the elements may have faded at times, generally speaking the color is quite robust, with especially pleasing blues. Fuller opts for a lot of extreme close-ups (to the point where only portions of faces are visible), and in those moments, fine detail is excellent to exceptional. There are density issues throughout this presentation, which at times lead to a sort of quasi-flicker, but it's mostly limited to what would have been the first reel. As should be expected, the underwater footage looks quite soft in comparison to the rest of the film. Apparently the bulk of the film was shot in Mexico, while a second unit did some location shooting in the Sudan. This second unit footage is notably more ragged looking than the bulk of the footage, a problem which is further exacerbated by (once again) weird editing choices. The first establishing shots of the Sudan have some pretty serious stability issues, with the image vertically jumping just a bit, in a kind of quasi- tracking anomaly. This soon passes however, and though other Sudanese sequences also look relatively soft and grainy, there aren't any more major stability problems.


Shark! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Shark!'s lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix is quite good most of the time, save for some stupid sound editing decisions, like the final blast of music that accompanies the "The End" title card, which is thrust into previously existing underscore. Dialogue and foley effects sound rather good here (some of the underwater sound effects are very well done). For you trivia lovers, the score includes a couple of fairly lamentable tunes, including one by Gary Geld. Geld wrote a number of great pop hits with his partner Peter Udell, including "Sealed With a Kiss" and "Hurting Each Other", and shortly after Shark! was released, Geld and Udell had a major Broadway hit on their hands with Purlie!, the musical version of Purlie Victorious. The musical snagged several Tony Awards and provided cast member (and Tony winner) Melba Moore with a huge hit with "I Got Love".
