The Rock

 (1996)

The Rock Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A group of renegade marine commandos seizes a stockpile of chemical weapons and takes over Alcatraz, with 81 tourists as hostages. Their leader, a former highly-decorated U.S. general, demands $100 million to be paid in ransom, as restitution to families of soldiers who died in covert operations and were thereby denied compensation. Otherwise, he is threatening to launch 15 rockets carrying deadly VX nerve gas into the San Francisco Bay area. An elite SEAL team, with support from an FBI chemical warfare expert and a former Alcatraz escapee, is assembled to penetrate the terrorists' defenses on Alcatraz and neutralize the rocket threat before time runs out.

For more about The Rock and the The Rock Blu-ray release, see the The Rock Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

The Rock Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Disney continues to impress with their commitment to high-bitrate AVC encodes. The Rock benefits from this with its frenetic camera movements and action scenes. There is never a trace of pixelation or picture breakup and colors are exquisite. I compared this Blu-ray encode to the picture on my Criterion edition of The Rock and the increase in detail and resolution is stunning. The Blu-ray edition also appeared much more film like and showed a vast improvement in shadow detail and black levels. Being over a decade old, The Rock is shot in a manner that might not appeal to those who are on the lookout for grain-free digitally enhanced film. The film has been kept in excellent condition, without a trace of dirt or any print-related issues. Ultimately, this AVC encode faithfully recreates the cinematic experience that was intended. The Rock looks amazing on Blu-ray.


The Rock Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

If the improvements in picture aren't enough to make this disc a must-buy, the stellar PCM 5.1 track on The Rock should seal the deal. I did a few A/B comparisons between this track and the Dolby Digital track present on the disc, and the results are dramatic. Overall fidelity has been improved with a clarity to the mix that has been missing on DVD all these years. Conversational dialogue is also greatly improved. I noticed an element of hissing in the sharp consonants of the Dolby Digital version. This was completely eliminated in PCM - - every syllable was intelligible and crystal clear. The biggest upgrade comes in the form of the overall atmosphere of the mix. Once again, PCM created a real sense of three-dimensionality that just wasn't there in Dolby Digital. Directional effects were much more dramatic in PCM with gunfire and low frequency effects packing a solid and gut-wrenching punch. The Rock is reference grade!
