Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam

 (2010)

Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Chosen the world’s protector against the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man – pride, envy, greed, hatred, selfishness, laziness and injustice – young Billy Batson accepts his destiny as Captain Marvel. Battling alongside Superman against nefarious Black Adam, Billy soon discovers the challenge super heroes ultimately face: is it revenge or justice? For bounty hunter Jonah Hex and hard-boiled cop turned vengeance ghost The Spectre, getting their hands dirty is part of the job – maybe even the fun part. But Superman, Green Arrow and Black Canary follow an internal moral code to guide their actions. They know it’s easy to get lost in the darkness of the fight, especially when villans like Merlyn the Magnificent and Count Vertigo place no value on human life.

For more about Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam and the Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam Blu-ray release, see Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Four animated shorts, four striking but somewhat problematic 1080p/VC-1 presentations. The Return of Black Adam, The Spectre, Jonah Hex and Green Arrow all suffer from the same issues -- intermittent banding, occasional aliasing and a number of other fleeting compression anomalies -- albeit to varying degrees. The Spectre tops the collection (possibly because the short's faux-70s grindhouse aesthetics help cloak any technical eyesores); Adam features one of the more proficient encodes (despite some brief underwater unsightliness, a few choppy shadows and some seemingly random blockiness); Arrow only struggles here and there (with a bit of banding more than anything else); and Hex is haunted by the collection's most noticeable issues and glaring macroblocking (thanks in large part to a string of fire-lit interiors and nighttime exteriors). However, those who are able to look past such arguably minor mishaps will find that the overall presentation still shines in high definition. Colors are brave and bold, contrast is strong and stable, blacks are dark and dastardly, detail is fantastic on the whole and each encode obliterates its DVD counterpart. Ultimately, your enjoyment will come down to expectation. If the recent rash of less-than-perfect DCU Blu-ray presentations have left a sour taste in your mouth, this one isn't going to inspire any sudden praise. But if you found yourself wondering why Superman/Batman: Apocalypse disappointed hardline videophiles, the BD release of Superman/Shazam will most likely satisfy you to no end.


Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Return of Black Adam, The Spectre, Green Arrow and Jonah Hex split the sonic heavens with four hard-hitting, knuckle-pounding DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks; each one as rewarding and enveloping as the next. With the utmost conviction, the LFE channel anoints every Kryptonian punch, supernatural flurry, explosive-tipped arrow and six-shooter blast with sternum-rattling intensity and otherworldly heft. The rear speakers never hesitate for a moment either, rushing headlong into the fray with nimble sure-footedness. Directionality is precise and engaging, pans are eerie, and ambience is both aggressive and arresting. In fact, the shorts' lossless tracks rival their feature-length DCU brethren, making it incredibly easy to sink into each tale and accept it on its little slice of the DC Universe on its own terms. It only helps that dialogue is crisp, perfectly intelligible and smartly prioritized throughout, even amidst the chaos of the shorts' super heroics. (Hex struggles a bit, but even then, only when it comes a few slightly muffled lines). All things considered, I doubt the Superman/Shazam collection could sound any better than it does here. Fans will be thrilled with the results.
