The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

Similar to the UK and French releases, Criterion's release uses as a foundation the new 2012 4K restoration by the Film Foundation. Needless to say, the film looks spectacular. Detail and especially image depth are often quite extraordinary (see screencapture #4). Colors are remarkably rich and well saturated (see screencapture #5). Contrast and brightness levels are also notably stable. I did a few quick comparisons with the other two releases mentioned above and as far as color saturation and brightness are concerned the Criterion and ITV releases appear to be closer to each other (the brightness levels are slightly elevated on the Carlotta Films release). Furthermore, there are absolutely no traces of problematic lab corrections. Compression is also very good. There are no damage marks, debris, scratches, or warps to report in this review. To sum it all up, this is arguably the most impressive restoration and presentation of a Technicolor film to appear on the home video market since the high-definition format was launched. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The dialog is consistently crystal clear, clean, and stable, while the music is well rounded and well balanced. There are no sudden spikes or drops in dynamic movement. Also, there are no pops, cracks, background hiss, audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
