The Way of War

 (2008)

The Way of War Blu-ray offers solid video and mediocre audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

Sent overseas to kill a ruthless terrorist, special ops assassin David Wolfe (Cuba Gooding Jr.) uncovers a secret that puts his own life in jeopardy: a nefarious conspiracy that involves the highest levels of the U.S. government. Now, Wolfe must use all his skills to expose the truth before the powers that be snuff out his life.

For more about The Way of War and the The Way of War Blu-ray release, see the The Way of War Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Cuba Gooding, Jr.
Director: John Carter

The Way of War Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 24Mbps), The Way of War looks to be an accurate representation of the source material, which isn't always a good thing. During the initial ten minutes of the film, I was blown away by the presence of crisp fine object detail, which clearly establishes false hope. Before long, detail began showing traces of crumbling proficiency, as one scene after another seemed increasingly marginal. Along with the inconsistency in detail, the coloring of the film undergoes wild swings between dominant reds and color-sapping greens. The choices in the palette aren't necessarily off-putting given the style of the film itself, but they don't exactly make this a visual feast. Lastly, I was impressed with black levels and contrast throughout the majority of the feature, but there's one scene at the 34:20 mark that's downright awful (when Wolfe discovers his wife's dead body). In that particular sequence, you can barely make out a drop of detail in the overly dark room, draping the entire room in a sea of black.

In the end, The Way of War can't seem to decide if it wants to look spectacular or off-putting. Every time you begin to fall in love with the transfer, it removes the mask of proficiency to reveal the ugliness underneath.


The Way of War Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Considering The Way of War relies heavily on dialog to further the story (what little there may be), the lossless audio track should strive to deliver those elements with abundant clarity. Instead, most listeners will struggle to decide which was worse; the absurdity of the script, or the lack of clear dialogue. To give you an idea of what I'm referring to, there's a scene toward the end of the film when Wolfe faces a government official, who spouts off a nonsensical quote as he stands up from the ground. I desperately wanted to use the quote in my review (to demonstrate how outrageous the lines can get), but after listening to it five times, I still couldn't make out a portion in the middle. Moments like that seem to be par for the course (rather than the exception), making it just as hard to decipher the lines as it is to interpret the meaning. Part of the blame can be attributed to the soft-spoken nature of Cuba Gooding Jr. and the entire ensemble cast, but it remains the responsibility of the audio track to accurately reproduce ideal volume levels. Moving away from the dialog, the other elements in the mix fair much better, with excellent clarity and sufficient volume. There isn't much surround separation to speak of, but be prepared for several excellent musical entries that take full advantage of every speaker in the room.
