The King's Speech

 (2010)

The King's Speech Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Tells the story of the man who became King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. After his brother abdicates, George ('Bertie') reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a dreaded stammer and considered unfit to be king, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue. Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, Bertie is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country through war.

The King's Speech Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The King's Speech arrives on Blu-ray with a steady but slightly underwhelming 1080p transfer. The image generally looks fairly flat and faces occasionally appear pasty, but it still manages some strong detailing in close-up shots of speaking mouths, the intricate regal garb worn later in the film, and even the textures and lines of the old-fashioned microphones seen throughout the movie. Colors are fair; the image favors a colder, blue-gray drab appearance at times, but at others it is nicely vibrant with each shade neither too bright nor too dull. Light grain is retained over the image, but a hint of background noise creeps in from time to time, generally visible over darker backgrounds. Black levels are fair, though a few times crush is readily evident and at others blacks look washed out and unhealthy. A few foggy scenes are handled expertly with no visible banding, but banding is to be seen in a few other isolated spots throughout the movie. The King's Speech isn't a top-tier image, but most of its problems are of the nit-picky variety rather than deal-breaking issues.


The King's Speech Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

It would seem that a movie about speech should have a great soundtrack to help capture the smallest nuances of Colin Firth's performance. Anchor Bay's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is just that. The King's Speech isn't going to become a reference-quality release for sound -- the picture plays with a rather limited sound design by its very nature -- but the Blu-ray soundtrack is wonderfully clear and accurate nonetheless. Music is smooth, crisp, and balanced, flowing from the front with the necessary energy and spacing to give it a refined, polished, lifelike accuracy. Supporting sound effects are nicely implemented, too; the crowd's in-unison rise to its feet at Wembley stadium plays with a sharp, hard crack that sounds big and robust but also reinforces the fear felt by Prince Albert as he approaches the microphone. There aren't all that many pronounced sound effects in the film -- even atmospherics are limited but handled nicely, revealing a nice bit of spacing and slight surround support -- but Anchor Bay's track delivers all that's asked of it with relative ease and grace. Of course, dialogue is pitch-perfect; the track captures every slur, stutter, smacked lip, nervous audible tick, and the like with exceptional accuracy, while also handling general dialogue like a champion. The King's Speech won't push sound systems to their limits, but this is nevertheless an exceptional Dramatic soundtrack that handles the picture's every need with astonishing ease.
