The Shadow Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

There's an argument to be made that a 2.0 is far too kind. Universal's 1080p/VC-1 encoded video transfer is an unholy abomination from a bygone era. Built on the back of a DVD-era master, The Shadow's high definition debut looks as if it was prepared for release when HD-DVD still roamed the Earth. It struggles with dull, diluted colors, weak primaries, sickly skintones, severely crushed blacks and countless contrast inconsistencies and inadequacies. And it has nothing to do with age, inherent softness or the filmmakers' intentions either. Artificial sharpening boosts detail but only artificially. (It seems obvious, I know, but it's amazing how often viewers mistake sharpness for genuine clarity.) The result? Edge halos are out in full force, and the most revealing textures remain unnatural. Worse, grain is harsh, chunky and problematic, compression anomalies aren't uncommon, and eyesores of all stripes abound. It isn't as bad as a DVD upscale, thankfully, and it does offer a marginal upgrade over its SD counterpart. But fans hoping for a revitalized, rejuvenated Shadow will have to put their faith in another would-be catalog hero: Shout Factory. Unfortunately, Universal has failed to deliver.


The Shadow Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Shadow's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is more rewarding, even though the thin, tinny, comicbook nature of the soundscape makes for a less-than-immersive experience. Dialogue is clear and intelligible throughout, without much in the way of prioritization mishaps. A few lines are dragged beneath the chaos when action erupts, but nothing of any consequence. LFE output is decidedly decent too, bringing solid punch and hefty kick to the fight whenever Cranston becomes The Shadow. The rear speakers get a mild workout too, but busy as they get, they aren't very efficient. Directionality suffers and dynamics aren't quite up to snuff, although much of that traces back to the film's original sound design rather than a deficiency in the lossless track. All told, The Shadow's DTS-HD MA mix isn't a disappointment, it just doesn't leave much of a mark.
