The Cruel Sea Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Charles Frend's The Cruel Sea arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

Similar to Cross of Iron and Ice Cold in Alex, The Cruel Sea has been digitally restored. Naturally, there are massive improvements in terms of detail, clarity, contrast, and color reproduction. The best news, however, is that there have been no attempts to filter the film's raw sequences. Naturally, because heavy DNR corrections have not been performed healthy light grain is present at all times. Furthermore, many of the close-ups convey outstanding depth and fluidity, and many rival those seen in the upcoming Blu-ray release of Ice Cold in Alex (see screencapture #11). Clarity is also impressive, particularly during the nighttime footage, where these types of films are typically suffer the most. This being said, there are portions of the film where mild edge-enhancement occasionally creeps in (some could be seen in screencapture #19), at least some of which appears to be related to various color enhancements, mostly slightly boosted blacks, which I noticed. Still, this is a very strong release that will undoubtedly impress fans of The Cruel Sea. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Cruel Sea Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Clearly there are limitations but all of them are source related. In other words, there are no serious technical anomalies that are likely to affect your viewing experience -- the English LPCM 2.0 track has a rather limited dynamic amplitude, but the dialog is crisp, clean, and easy to follow. Various stabilizations have been performed as well; there are no sound overlappings or massive audio dropouts. Background hiss is also not an issue of concern.
