The Perfect Storm

 (2000)

The Perfect Storm Blu-ray offers decent video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

October 1991. It was "the perfect storm" a tempest that may happen only once in a century a nor'easter created by so rare a combination of factors that it could not possibly have been worse. Creating waves ten stories high and winds of 120 miles an hour (193 kph), the storm whipped the sea to inconceivable levels few people on Earth have ever witnessed. Few, except the six-man crew of the Andrea Gail, a commercial fishing boat headed towards its hellish center.

For more about The Perfect Storm and the The Perfect Storm Blu-ray release, see the The Perfect Storm Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, John C. Reilly, Diane Lane, William Fichtner, John Hawkes
Director: Wolfgang Petersen (I)

The Perfect Storm Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Perfect Storm sails onto Blu-ray with a somewhat disappointing but perfectly acceptable 1080p high definition transfer. Framed at 2.40:1, the transfer offers viewers a broad range of looks, from bright, sunny shots on the seaside to rainy and dark nighttime exteriors at sea. Both hold up well but each exhibit some flaws that, while never a distraction thanks in large part to the dramatic value of the film, don't allow for an eye-catching image. The transfer starts off looking nice with a natural, true-to-life outdoor tour through the piers and boats of Gloucester. Colors are sharp and rich and detail is generally nice. Softness becomes an issue in the transfer, though, and remains an issue throughout. Look at Bobby's Boston Red Sox cap and Billy's John Deere cap in chapter three. There is very little detail, and it looks more like a blob and a blur rather than a sharp and crisp object. These ball caps, and other items seen during the course of the film, look a bit better in a few scenes, but as a rule, detail is moderate at best and sharp edges and crystal-clear images are hard to come by. The image never jumps off the screen, coming across as one-dimensional and dull. There are no problems such as print anomalies, dirt, or other annoying abnormalities. Flesh tones are accurately rendered and black levels are fairly solid. The Perfect Storm offers viewers a decent transfer, but one that simply pales in comparison to the finest discs Blu-ray has to offer today.


The Perfect Storm Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Perfect Storm's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless surround sound track slams into Blu-ray with a sonic assault that brings the film to vivid life. Many scenes are fairly quiet, especially early dialogue scenes before the Gail sets sail yet again. Surround presence is minimal in these scenes. Atmospherics generally come from the front channels rather than both the front and back. The bar scene in chapter four features a nice presence across the front, but is quiet in the rears, failing to offer a truly realistic experience as ambient noise is nowhere to be heard across the rear. Dialogue itself seems slightly lower in volume than optimal. As expected, however, the track picks up once we're out to sea on the Gail. Atmospherics are excellent; we can hear the sound of the old boat creaking and rocking all around the soundstage to nice effect, effectively placing us on the ship. What's nice is that it's never too pronounced or distracting. The sound emanates from every speaker creating a nice ambience that just feels real, and the sound design is reserved yet effective in such scenes. The soundstage is full and powerful during the stormy action sequences, too. A rescue attempt via helicopter in chapter 21 is an entertaining and active listening experience. Surrounds are in full effect with the crashes of waves, rain, and helicopter rotors. The entire soundstage is drenched in action, the sound wide, full and loud without becoming distorted or a distraction from the action. The entire second half of the movie is thunderous, a case study in excellent use of powerful, robust, and incessant sound. It works well because these sounds are distinct and clear, yet retain a power and fear factor that effectively elevates the power and awe of the storm and the film it is depicted in. This is a fine track that will satisfy fans.
