The Jewel of the Nile

 (1985)

The Jewel of the Nile Blu-ray offers decent video and poor audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Joan Wilder and Jack Colton are back in the fast lane on a perilous trek through the North African Desert, facing treacherous tribes, deadly dungeons, and seemingly endless villains in the search for the elusive "jewel." Plucky romance novelist Joan Wilder is thrust back into a world of murder, chases, foreign intrigue... and love. This time out she's duped by a duplicitous Arab dignitary who brings her to the Middle East, ostensibly to write a book about his life. Of course he's up to no good, and Joan is just another pawn in his wicked game. But Jack Colton and his sidekick Ralph, old friends from her previous adventures, show up to help our intrepid heroine save the day.

For more about The Jewel of the Nile and the The Jewel of the Nile Blu-ray release, see the The Jewel of the Nile Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, Danny DeVito, Spiros Focas, Avner Eisenberg, Holland Taylor

The Jewel of the Nile Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Jewel of the Nile features a decent but certainly not eye-catching 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer. Detail is fairly high; the opening segments in the "real world" aboard the Angelina reveals a nice amount of depth and color, particularly in the towels and clothing as seen in the scene. Color also looks great in those scenes taking place in Omar's kingdom, where the varied and bright clothing plays nicely against the tan, monotone backgrounds of the buildings and dirt roads. The first time viewers see Ralph, he is hiding in a wooden box. All of the knots and seams take on a realistic texture. The image looks a bit faded and bland, soft in a places, but never especially bothersome. Black levels are average, as are flesh tones, and the image exhibits some print anomalies along with some noise that is particularly noticeable near the end of the film. Not the perfect transfer, even for an older catalogue title, but certainly sufficient, The Jewel of the Nile's 1080p transfer should satisfy most casual fans.


The Jewel of the Nile Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

The Jewel of the Nile presents listeners with an uneven and generally disappointing DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. It features heavier bass and a more active surround speaker presentation than what was offered in Romancing the Stone, but the track is marred by plenty of annoyances. Lacking much in the way of clarity, and far too loud at reference volume, much of the sound comes across as muffled and undefined. Action sequences in particular sound confused, jumbled, and exceptionally high in volume. Bass is used to nice effect in a few instances, such as a rumbling explosion in chapter 5. Dialogue is the best aspect of the disc, sounding crisp and natural through the center channel. Surrounds come into play nicely here and there; some nice echoing during a dialogue sequence between Joan and Omar as they speak in a large courtyard in chapter eight stands out. Sound spreads fairly well around the stage, with a few decent ambient effects in addition to the fine dialogue reproduction that feels as expansive as the yard itself. The back channels fill up nicely a few times. The sound of gunfire, for example, crackles throughout the back and across the front in chapter 11. Even throughout this action sequence, the volume becomes inconsistent, and many listeners will find themselves fiddling with the remote rather than paying attention to the action, a situation that, unfortunately, best describes practically the entire mix.
