The Verdict Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Verdict is handed down on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that looks like it was possibly sourced from an old master, but still makes an appreciable upgrade from standard definition. 20th Century Fox hasn't given the film the frame-by-frame restorative treatment it's given other classics recently; the image is often marked with black and white specks that come and go—though never distractingly, or in large numbers—and the grain structure perhaps seems a bit too heavy, giving the picture a muddled quality, especially in darker scenes. Still, this is better than a transfer that's been smoothed over with DNR and artificially sharpened with edge enhancement. The Verdict at least looks naturally filmic. Clarity is so-so; there are some tighter shots that look wonderfully sharp, bringing out the fine detail in the actors faces and clothing, but there are plenty of other scenes that don't seem as crisp as they could be given a proper remaster from original source materials. Barring some crushed shadows, color seems mostly true to source, though. In his commentary track, Lumet discusses his choices for the film's palette—lots of drab neutrals, with only two or three instances of strong hues—and from his description, the picture looks accurate.


The Verdict Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The disc includes two English audio options—the default 5.1 mix and a mono track, both in the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio codec—but they're practically indistinguishable. The film's audio was originally mono, and the extended multi-channel mix here really only adds some quiet bleeding room for the few rare scenes where Lumet decides to use music. Most of the time, the rear speakers are completely silent. (As they should be, movie audio purists would argue.) This is an almost entirely dialogue-driven film—with minimal effects, ambience, and scoring—so thankfully, the actors' voices are always cleanly recorded as easily understood. I didn't catch any pops, hisses, crackles, or any other notable issues. No problems here. The disc also includes several dub and subtitle options—see above for details—including English, French, Spanish, Dutch, German, and Italian subtitles for Sidney Lumet's commentary track.
