The Atomic Kid

 (1954)

The Atomic Kid Blu-ray offers decent video and poor audio, but overall it's a disappointing Blu-ray release

While a Uranium prospector is in the desert he is accidentally exposed to radiation from an atomic bomb test. He becomes radioactive and is recruited by the FBI to help break up a spy ring.

For more about The Atomic Kid and the The Atomic Kid Blu-ray release, see the The Atomic Kid Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 1.5 out of 5.

Starring: Mickey Rooney, Robert Strauss, Elaine Devry
Director: Leslie H. Martinson

The Atomic Kid Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Atomic Kid is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. The elements here have their fair share of damage, perhaps more than might be expected, with quite a few scratches, specks and flecks and even an errant missing frame or two. Once those issues are gotten past, however, the high definition presentation offers reasonable sharpness and clarity, though contrast is on the low side, making some of the interior scenes pretty murky looking (see several of the screenshots accompanying this review for some good examples). The brightly lit sequences fare a good deal better. The film utilizes quite a bit of stock footage, some apparently sourced from 16mm, and as should be expected, those sequences are noticeably softer and grainier than the bulk of this presentation. As with most Olive releases, no restoration, cleaning or sharpening seems to have been applied to this release, so along with the attendant damage comes a healthy layer of grain.


The Atomic Kid Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

The Atomic Kid features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix that has some considerable damage to report. The pops, cracks and overt distortion during the Republic Pictures logo is perhaps relatively understandable, but once the actual film starts, there are some pretty major speed fluctuations (and we're not talking about Blix's "Chipmunk speak" here). You'll hear it especially in Van Alexander's (frankly annoying) score, where tonalities shift by as much as a half step as speed increases and decreases within the same cue. Dialogue isn't affected nearly as much by these shifts, but overall this is a fairly lackluster audio presentation.
