The Peacemaker

 (1997)

The Peacemaker Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

When a train carrying atomic warheads mysteriously crashes in the former Soviet Union, brilliant U.S. nuclear specialist Dr. Julia Kelly discovers the accident is really part of a diabolical plot to cover up the theft of the weapons. Assigned to help her recover the missing bombs is crack Special Forces Colonel Thomas Devoe, whose brash, take-no-prisoners style clashes with Kelly’s more diplomatic approach. Putting aside their personal differences – and budding romance – the two begin a tumultuous partnership as they track down the stolen weapons, following a deadly trail of espionage and intrigue that culminates in an unauthorized air assault inside Russian territory. Now, it’s a race against time to uncover the last missing warhead...before it’s too late.

For more about The Peacemaker and the The Peacemaker Blu-ray release, see the The Peacemaker Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: George Clooney, Nicole Kidman, Marcel Iures, Alexander Baluev, Rene Medvesek, Gary Werntz

The Peacemaker Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Paramount churns out a decidedly average Blu-ray transfer for The Peacemaker. It looks good in spurts, not-so-good in others, but the good usually outweighs the bad and yields a watchable but not eye-catching 1080p image. Of the transfer's weaknesses, the heavy sharpening appears to be the worst offender. The image often takes on an aggressively sharp appearance, resulting in something of a digital sheen in places, accentuated by intermittent haloing. A few instances of minor compression anomalies in the form of background blocking are also visible. Blacks appear muddy and overwhelming during the picture's opening nighttime train sequence, resulting in foreground details that seem to vanish from the image, replaced instead by giant globules of blackness. Fine detail falls flat in some scenes, but looks rather good in others. For instance, the image captures the minuscule grime and wear on piano keys as seen during one shot, but it often fails to capture the finest of detailing on clothes, faces, and other foreground information. Colors are steady and seemingly accurate, with bright reds, vibrant green foliage, and other aggressive hues standing out but not appearing over-saturated. Grain and background noise appear at an almost overwhelming level in a few scenes while practically vanishing in others. The Peacemaker features more of an artificial look than it does a pleasantly filmic one, but Paramount's uneven 1080p transfer isn't a complete eyesore, either.


The Peacemaker Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Peacemaker features a decent enough DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack that gets the job done but doesn't distinguish itself as one of Blu-ray's better soundtracks. There are a few stretches where the track seems slightly off-balance; the opening scene inside a church is one such instance where the track seems left-side heavy. Whether that's filmmaker intent or not isn't abundantly clear, but it doesn't sound quite right. Nevertheless, the bulk of the track seems appropriately centered about the middle. It takes on a slight harsh edge which doesn't allow for that rich, pristine clarity and absolute seamlessness of the finest soundtracks to come through, resulting in a track that's loud and with lofty goals that are never quite met. The track enjoys some fine directional effects; a train rumbles across the right side of the soundstage in one early scene while action elements often spill out of every speaker. The low end belts out some nicely-realized explosions, while gunfire -- particularly a heavy machine gun that opens up in one scene in chapter 10 -- is potent and deadly, the track capturing the raw power and chest-rattling reverberations of various weapons very well. Dialogue is center-based and effortlessly crisp and satisfying. The Peacemaker isn't in the running to earn a spot in the listing of the year's top soundtracks, but fans should be more or less satisfied with what's offered.
