The Wrestler

 (2008)

The Wrestler Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Randy "The Ram" Robinson, a 1980s-era pro wrestler, has become a burnt-out shell of his former self. After he has a heart attack during a small-time match, a doctor tells him he could die if he fights again. In an effort to build a new life, Robinson takes a job at a deli, moves in with an aging stripper and tries to build a relationship with her son. But the prospect of a rematch with his old nemesis, the Ayatollah, proves too tempting to resist, even if it means risking his life.

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

The Wrestler Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Wreslter debuts on Blu-ray with an impressive 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer. The film features a gritty, grainy presentation, and intentionally so. Despite its less-than-pristine appearance, the transfer is generally exceptional in the context of the film's intended visual presentation. Colors are wonderfully reproduced -- blood looks like a solid shade of red, the colors on the many wrestling tights and other clothing is stable, and background colors -- those seen on walls, inside the ring, and on other objects such as products on the shelf of a pharmacy -- offer steady, solid coloring. Detail, too, is exceptional. Whether every strand of blonde hair on Ram's head, the textures on objects such as worn street signs and pavement, or even the small staples that become embedded in the skin during a particularly brutal match, all stand out nicely and realistically, even against the grainy overlay. Flesh tones do veer towards a red tint, but blacks are dark and inky. Overall, The Wrestler looks fantastic on Blu-ray, serving as yet another disc that isn't clean and clear but recreates the director-intended look of the film very well, making it a first-class presentation.


The Wrestler Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Wrestler hits hard on Blu-ray with an impressive DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The track demonstrates its sonic superiority from the get-go, with its presentation of a pulse-pounding, hard-hitting Quiet Riot song that spills out of every speaker, accompanied by plenty of hard-hitting, pulsating bass. Sound placement is excellent, with discrete effects emanating all around the soundstage -- crowd noise engulfs the area while play-by-play commentary clips are heard here and there across the front. Each wrestling scene is appropriately raucous, making fine use of all the speakers in the track's arsenal to practically place the listener in the midst of the roaring crowd. Still, it is the film's more contemplative and quieter moments - - those that find Ram alone, in the dark, remembering his life and struggling to find himself -- that really makes the track shine. The track does well to create seamless environmental ambience, those of nature or the sounds of the grocery storage room where Ram works as forklifts beep and roll by and humming refrigeration units bring such scenes to life. The film's several scenes inside a club feature yet more impressive atmospherics; music pours through every speaker, but is low enough in volume to hear dialogue crisply and precisely, but not too low so as to ruin the atmosphere. Dialogue in the film's many calmer scenes, too, is reproduced cleanly and effectively. The Wrestler makes for another strong lossless soundtrack from Fox.
