Volcano Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Volcano spews forth a pedestrian, DVD-quality transfer. The film fares worst over the title sequence. Dirt appears static and definition remarkably poor. Things clear up for the rest of the movie, however, though the image never offers the sort of stable, accurate, film-quality appearance Blu-ray fans rightly demand. There's a flatness and pastiness to the image, a smoothed-over appearance that shows some well defined general details but always lacks that crispness of a stronger transfer. Colors can be fairly bold but lack nuance, whether green grasses, lava reds and oranges, or firefighter yellow. The palette never impresses but does deliver a fairly even appearance, even though much of the film takes place at night and under the influence of a gray, ashy overlay. Blockiness and banding aren't major issues. Black levels are decent, but flesh tones capture that flat, monochromatic pasty appearance. Minor wear-and-tear and dirt are occasional problems. Fans hoping for Volcano to be looking spiffy in high definition will be greatly disappointed.


Volcano Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Volcano erupts onto Blu-ray with an effective, but not great, Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. While it regularly cranks out some hefty sound effects, there's not much real clarity and precision placement. Chaotic scenes without the rumble of the quakes and the flow of the lava sound nearly empty; a brief emergency room scene near the beginning sounds disturbingly vacant beyond character voices. However, a solid rumble follows but it, nor any like it, never really digs deep to find that real precise, chest-rattling, deep-down bass. Music is light and airy, nicely spaced and fairly clear, but it, too, lacks that pinpoint clarity offered by better tracks. The surround speakers do carry a nice load throughout, though oftentimes the track feels more like a barrage of moderately defined sounds rather than a full-on immersive sound field. Dialogue, generally, does comes through neatly and evenly from the center. Overall, this isn't a bad track -- it's loud and aggressive when need be -- but it certainly comes up well short of its potential.
