There Be Dragons

 (2011)

There Be Dragons Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

A young journalist long ago rejected by his now aged and dying father finds himself investigating one of his father's former friends, a candidate for canonization. Uncovering the two men's complicated relationship from childhood through the horrors of the Spanish Civil War unveils a compelling drama filled with passion, betrayal, love and religion. An action packed story set during a murderous time in history that ultimately serves the present by revealing the importance and timeless power of forgiveness.

For more about There Be Dragons and the There Be Dragons Blu-ray release, see There Be Dragons Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Charlie Cox, Wes Bentley, Dougray Scott, Unax Ugalde, Olga Kurylenko, Golshifteh Farahani
Director: Roland Joffe

There Be Dragons Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

There Be Dragons was shot on 35mm by Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Beristain, and 20th Century Fox has transferred his work to Blu-ray wonderfully, with a 1080p/AVC encode that's strong in clarity and color. If I have one niggling complaint--not even a complaint really, more of an observation--it's that the contrast curve can be quite heavily weighted in the shadows, resulting in some occasionally crushed detail during darker scenes. This is a stylistic decision as much as anything, though, and it never gets outright oppressive or eye-straining, so I don't see any cause for concern. Most importantly, the image looks natural. Grain is still visible, there are no problems with edge-enhancement, and compression/encode issues are limited to brief bursts of noise and some mild flickering/shimmer in two or three shots. There's a slightly soft quality to a few scenes--and some scenes that have been intentionally blurred toward the edges for effect--but the picture overall is more than adequately sharp, with tight high definition detail in all of the areas where you normally expect to see it. The tonality is great too, with a generally warm cast, balanced skin tones, and vivid flashes of color when called for, like the bright reds of the communists' flags and handkerchiefs.


There Be Dragons Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

I have nothing but good to say about There Be Dragons' lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which provides a good deal of energy to a film sorely lacking in liveliness. Obviously, the mix is at its most intense during the battle sequences, where bombs explode with satisfying subwoofer engagement, fighter planes strafe through the soundfield, and bullets crack loudly, whizzing between channels with enough intensity to make you jump in your seat. But even during quieter scenes the track shows an attention to detail by way of fairly immersive ambience, from traffic sounds and the jeers of a mob to the spirit-like gust of wind that opens Escrivá's window during a prayer session. Dynamically, the mix is full and balanced--neither tinny nor bass heavy--and there's a consistent sense of clarity and richness in the effects and score. The accents may stretch credulity, but the dialogue itself is clear and easily understood, with no muffling, crackles, or lowness. I don't think I had to adjust the volume on my receiver once during the film. For those that might need or want them, the disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
