The Men Who Built America Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Men Who Built America is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate Films (A&E and therefore History's new distributor) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. As mentioned above in the main body of the review, this is an uncommonly handsome History production, and it's also notable in that finally History doesn't resort to nonstop "shaky cam" antics (though there are occasional fast zooms in and out). This high definition presentation looks quite sharp and clear almost all of the time, with nicely modulated color (some sequences have been intentionally desaturated or given a kind of sepia tone look) and abundant fine detail in the close-ups. There's nice differentiation between the reenactments, which frequently have been fairly aggressively color graded, and the contemporary talking heads segments, which retain a more natural appearance. Contrast remains strong and black levels are full and solid. All in all, a commendable new beginning for the partnership between Lionsgate and A&E.


The Men Who Built America Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Men Who Built America features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix that is, for the most part anyway, nicely mixed and full of some great immersive effects. History loves to tart up their soundtracks with omnipresent low frequency effects, and while it's not quite as bad in The Men Who Built America as in some other outings, the nonstop low end assault does occasionally just slightly mask Campbell Scott's excellent narration. Otherwise, though, this is a solid sonic rendering, with good, and really fairly consistent, use of the surround channels, excellent fidelity, and appealing dynamic range.
