The Last Wave

 (1977)

The Last Wave Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Richard Chamberlain stars as Australian lawyer David Burton, who takes on the defense of a group of aborigines accused of killing one of their own. He suspects the victim has been killed for violating a tribal taboo, but the defendants deny any tribal association. Burton, plagued by apocalyptic visions of war, slowly realized his own involvement with the aborigines...and their prophecies.

For more about The Last Wave and the The Last Wave Blu-ray release, see the The Last Wave Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Director: Peter Weir
Starring: Richard Chamberlain, Olivia Hamnett, David Gulpilil

The Last Wave Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Peter Weir's The Last Wave arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of German distributors Koch Media.

The high-definition transfer is quite inconsistent. It has been struck from a dated source and more often than not it shows. Most close-ups appear somewhat flat and soft, while during the darker sequences, especially in the final third of the film, clarity fails to impress. Even though there are no specific issues to address in this review, color reproduction also leaves a lot to be desired - both color saturation and depth are far from convincing. The good news is that there are no traces of excessive sharpening corrections. Some denoising corrections, however, have have been performed, more than likely at the time when the master for this film was prepared in Germany. Finally, there are no large debris and cuts, but some dirt spots occasionally pop up here and there. To sum it all up, this Blu-ray release represents only a small upgrade in terms of visual quality over the R1 Criterion DVD release of The Last Wave. Very clearly, there is plenty of room for improvement in most areas that we typically address in our reviews. (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 Last Wave Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and German DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Koch Media have provided optional German subtitles for the main feature.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track opens up the film in selected areas (for example during the dream sequences), but dynamic movement is quite modest. Depth is decent but it never matches the depth and fluidity from the wonderful Picnic at Hanging Rock. The dialog is stable and clean. For the record, there are no distortions or audio dropouts to report in this review.
