The Pacific

 (TV) (2010)

The Pacific Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The Pacific is an epic 10-part miniseries that delivers a realistic portrait of WWII's Pacific Theatre as seen through the intertwined odysseys of three U.S. Marines - Robert Leckie, John Basilone and Eugene Sledge. The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain forests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day. The viewer will be immersed in combat through the intimate perspective of this diverse, relatable group of men pushed to the limit in battle both physically and psychologically against a relentless enemy unlike any encountered before.

For more about The Pacific and the The Pacific Blu-ray release, see the The Pacific Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Bob Rumnock, Toby Leonard Moore, Joshua Biton, James Badge Dale, Joseph Mazzello, Jon Seda

The Pacific Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

HBO, perhaps more than any other studio to date, has made a habit of delivering absolutely essential television releases. For The Pacific, five BD-50 discs have been devoted to the miniseries' ten episodes, meaning each entry has been given ample room to breathe. The potent, wonderfully proficient result is a fantastic, arguably perfect 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that, barring one inherent issue, is sure to leave plenty of watery eyes in its wake. Framed with blazing white skies, gorgeous green jungles and rich, inky shadows, the miniseries' bloody battlefields and war-torn theater of operations is a staggering sight to behold. Dirt explodes around advancing Marines, blood spatters across the stone-strewn ground, explosions send shards of shrapnel flying and gunfire reduces dense foliage to powder. The color and clarity of the hotly contrasted chaos is nothing short of amazing and fine detail is as riveting as it is revealing. Magnificently resolved textures bring every sweat-streaked face and grimy uniform to startling life, razor-wire edges are crisp and clean (without any significant ringing to report), skintones are lifelike and precisely saturated, daytime delineation is impeccable and nary a brightly lit scene goes by without something of note to offer its wide-eyed audience.

Read that last sentence carefully though and you'll guess what comes next. Sequences that take place in the US, particularly those filmed at night or in low-lit interiors, aren't nearly as dazzling. Detail is still apparent, mind you, but not to the extent that it is during the sun-bleached scenes abroad. Delineation takes a hit, contrast is a bit flat and primaries are slightly muted. (The same quote-unquote shortcoming affects the moonlit battles that take place overseas, but I found these instances were far easier to overlook. If anything, the reduced visibility enhanced the tension and horror of the midnight skirmishes and dropped me in the middle of the murky madness.) All that being said, it's clear the presentation accurately reflects the intentions of the miniseries' masterminds and the darkness, dismal as it can be, rarely becomes a distraction. Otherwise, HBO's encode is immaculate. Artifacting, banding, smearing, aliasing, halos, crush and aberrant noise are nowhere to be found, and the miniseries' faint veneer of grain, though a tad uneven at times, remains natural and unobtrusive from episode to episode. As was the case with Band of Brothers, HBO has treated The Pacific with tremendous respect and honored its filmic efforts with an outstanding, true-to-its-source presentation worthy of the most discerning videophile's high praise.


The Pacific Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Wow. One more time: wow. As if it weren't already difficult enough to watch The Pacific without feeling a deep, emotional connection to its fallen heroes and steadfast soldiers, HBO's jaw-dropping, chest-splitting, hair-raising DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track makes every bullet, every death, every sacrifice, every act of selflessness a resonant, heart-wrenching experience. The LFE channel bombards the listener with earthy, at-times thundering thooms and booms, infusing explosions, roaring planes and blaring battleships with profound power and presence. The weight of each sound effect, be it subtle or earth-shaking, is convincing and intense; the impact of each rifle shot and artillery salvo won't soon be forgotten. Likewise, rear speaker activity is bold and arresting. Gunfire whizzes across the soundfield, rocks skitter from channel to channel, voices cry out in the distance, wind snakes through the jungle, waves advance up the beaches and the whole of the soundstage peppers the rear speakers as much as the front. Through it all, directionality boasts pinpoint accuracy and pans are as close to invisible as they come. Dialogue never wavers in the face of the sonic storm and voices are crystal clear regardless of the passive or aggressive nature of any particular scene. Shouts and whispers are given equal footing, barked orders mingle perfectly with the fury and the only lines that are consumed by the soundscape are those meant to be consumed. As it stands, I don't have a single criticism to level against HBO's lossless mix or the miniseries' sound design. And yet "perfection" seems like an understatement.
