The Bible: In the Beginning... Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Bible has had a pretty spotty history on home video, and the good news is it looks better than it ever has on this new AVC encoded 1080p Blu-ray. With a 65mm widescreen format of 2.19:1 this is "big" filmmaking of the biggest kind, and Huston fills the screen with amazing imagery which is delivered in high definition with excellent clarity and beautifully saturated color. What hampers this release from getting a higher score is persistent shimmer and aliasing, especially up through the Cain and Abel segment, due mostly to a lot of location shooting which features problematic areas like "amber waves" of grain and similar items that never quite resolve successfully. The same issues pop up intermittently throughout the film. Otherwise, this is certainly the sharpest and best defined image we've seen in any home video release of this film, and the improvement is quite marked at times. The opening Creation sequence reveals whole new levels of misty detail, and some of the darker elements of the film, such as the interior of the Ark, now reveal a heretofore unseen depth of field and background nuance. Close-ups also reveal a wealth of fine detail, sometimes slightly to the film's detriment as the over applied makeup becomes all too noticeable. But all in all fans of this film should be delighted with how it looks on Blu-ray and newcomers to the movie are generally in for quite a treat.


The Bible: In the Beginning... Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are an astounding number of international soundtracks included on this release, including two in English, a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix repurposed from the film's original multitrack stems, which are here represented in their original form courtesy of a Dolby Digital 4.0 mix. The lossless track is largely faultless, with brilliant fidelity and incredible dynamic range that is especially robust in some of the bombastic sound effects. The lightning flash that scars Cain is memorably reverberant, and the storm sequence with Noah is a fun and involving piece of sound design which brilliantly utilizes the surround channels. Best here (at least to my perhaps prejudiced ears) is the lossless accounting of Mayuzumi's remarkable score, one of the treasures of late-1960's film scores, here delivered with stunning accuracy and gorgeous fullness of tone. On the downside, the typical Italian technique of post-dubbing is pretty evident here, with obvious ambient differences in several dubbed actors (almost all minor roles). The other peculiarity, and one which stems from the original over-reverbed narration, is the boxy sound of Huston's narration, which has been a problem with all previous home video releases. Unfortunately, that's repeated here, but it's a minor issue in an otherwise really excellent audio presentation.
