U2: Rattle and Hum

 (1988)

U2: Rattle and Hum Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

A concert movie on an unprecedented scale. Rattle And Hum captures U2 – on and off the stage – during their triumphant Joshua Tree tour. From the giant Technicolor stadium celebrations to the black-and-white intensity of the indoor shows, this is U2 at their best. Follow the group across America, exploring new influences, playing with the legendary B.B. King, on a journey which takes them from Dublin to Graceland, from San Francisco to the streets of Harlem, from The Joshua Tree to Rattle And Hum.

For more about U2: Rattle and Hum and the U2: Rattle and Hum Blu-ray release, see U2: Rattle and Hum Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen, Jr.

U2: Rattle and Hum Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Rattle and Hum belongs to Paramount's neutral slate of releases and as such it was introduced simultaneously on BD as well as on HDDVD before the studio made their controversial exclusivity move to the red camp...and then reconsidered. Needless to say a lot has changed since then. What is truly important however is how Paramount treated Rattle and Hum? Did they do it justice or did they produce a mediocre disc? A quick look at the reviews published all over the Net reveals that just about everyone has a different opinion on the matter, from outspoken fans of the band to those who consider themselves casual viewers.

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and encoded in 1080p using the now abandoned by the studio MPEG-2 codec Paramount's Rattle and Hum is very much a documentary feature made for the big screen. It is heavily-grainy, at times looking worn-out, and undoubtedly different. A byproduct of mixing 16mm footage with 32mm mm footage (Kodak) the film does have a specific look which I believe a lot of folks are having a difficult time coming to terms with. I understand that certain people had different ideas how Rattle and Hum should look but suffice to say the BD disc offers a truthful to the master print replica which keeps all of the basics intact. Furthermore, the numerous calls some have unleashed for a new and cleaner print are very much an indicator that there is a sizable amount of viewers, I would not use the term film aficionados, who apparently expect HD transfers to deliver a specific type of look which has more to do with digital photography than film. I hope the studios and their encoders remains deaf to any such calls as while what I see on the BD for Rattle and Hum may not be reference quality allow me to assure you that it is far and away from the disaster some claim it is.

All of this being said, the image quality of this release is certainly better than what the SDVD reveals. The black and white scenes offer a varying degree of contrast (the blacks during the Memphis footage for example are quite different than the blacks seen in the Irish segments in the beginning of Rattle and Hum). Digital noise, also contrary to what some reviewers claim, isn't an issue. Detail, as intended by the creators of the film, is preserved and despite what has been said it is not an area of concern for this release. To sum it all up, Rattle and Hum on BD looks as good as the original source materials allow. Plain and simple.


U2: Rattle and Hum Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The BD for Rattle and Hum offers two tracks: English: Dolby Digital 5.1 EX and English: DTS-ES Matrix 6.1 and both of those capture the band's intensive live style of performing flawlessly. The Dolby Digital 5.1 EX track is dynamic, offering a great deal of depth, and impressively crisp. During the final performance at the Sun Devil Stadium the audio treatment is simply superb. Bono's vocals are balanced with excellent resonance while the supporting music perfectly matches the intensity of his singing. Slightly earlier in the film where U2 are seen and heard record an acapella performance in a Harlem church you will be similarly impressed with the clarity of the choirs' singing and the manner in which the music reverberates. Indeed, this is a very good sounding disc without any issues that I could detect.
