Ultimate Civil War

 (TV) (2012)

Ultimate Civil War Blu-ray features terrible video and poor audio in this poor Blu-ray release

This soon-to-be classic documentary mini-series traces the causes, courses as well as the major events and personalities of the American Civil War. Between 1861 and 1865, this epic American story of struggle and survival was written in blood, and in this series is told mostly from first-hand accounts and in the spoken words of the participants themselves, through their diaries, letters, and memoirs. The series concludes with Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House and the surrender of the western Confederate Army to Sherman in North Carolina in the spring of 1865. It then explores the legacy of slavery and the consequences and meaning of a war that transformed the country forever.

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

Ultimate Civil War Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.0 of 5

Mill Creek's high definition release of The Ultimate Civil War is an ultimate disaster. Few and far between are the moments when the image isn't marred by some eyesore. The presentation is riddled with stair-stepped jagged edges, chaotic blocking, severe banding, random edge halos, aliasing, poor detail, and bland colors. While still images of photographs, drawings, and paintings show fairly crisp, well-defined lines and colors, there's often shakiness and shimmering running rampant. Details suffice in some of the reenactment scenes, but the eye is usually drawn to the mess of negatives rather than what is sometimes fair clothing, facial, or terrain textures. Colors are adequate, at best. Green grasses; the red, white, and blue colors of the flags; Union blues and Rebel grays; and other colors appear stable and largely accurate, though never particularly vibrant or naturally lifelike. Black crush is a problem in shadowy corners, and flesh tones range wildly across the entire spectrum. Some scenes take on a deliberately rough appearance, with artificial vertical lines "aging" the material. Still, the wide range and constant appearance of various technical faults make this one of the worst transfers of 2012.


Ultimate Civil War Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

The Ultimate Civil War features a lackluster Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack that gets the point across but does nothing to dazzle listeners. And that's perfectly fine, in this case. The Ultimate Civil War will likely see the bulk of its duty in classrooms where TV speakers or a couple of in-wall or mounted speakers will deliver the material to a halfway disinterested student body. The documentary produces slightly harsh narration. Nevertheless, intelligibility is fine. Slight lip synch issues are present, at times, when it would seem characters are meant to be speaking; the documentary opens with a Lincoln monologue that doesn't come close to matching the actor's lip movements. Music plays with adequate clarity across the front, and various pops and booms of infantry fire and artillery shelling also drift across to the side. There's no sense of real space, impact, or natural clarity to the track. It's a no-frills Documentary sound presentation, and if expectations are kept in check most listeners will find this to be a satisfactory presentation given the program's price, material, and needs.
