WWII in 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A&E's 1080p/MVC-encoded 3D presentation is an excellent one, with only a few mishaps and oddities to endure. But more on that in a bit. The array of archive photographs deliver again and again, even if viewing the images in 3D isn't quite the revelation Wilkinson and the on-screen historians insist it is. The clarity of the photos varies -- taking a small toll on the consistency of the quote-unquote 3D effect -- but nothing emerges as a distraction. The picture isn't prone to ghosting (which is a product of individual displays and glasses anyway), the 3D photographs are in near-pristine condition, and you couldn't milk more detail out of the images if you tried. The 3D experience extends into the rest of the film as well, retaining the same sense of convincing depth whenever an expert or historian sits down to chat about the use of stereoscopic equipment and propaganda in World War II. The only exception being the occasional 2D photo or snippet of archive footage, which obviously looks flat compared to the rest of the presentation. But that's neither here nor there. The impact of the 3D imagery is what you're paying for, and the impact of the 3D imagery is where you'll get your money's worth. Get used to studying a paused screen, because you're about to do it. A lot. Edge definition is as crisp and clean as the photographs allow, textures are clearly visible when apparent, black levels are rich and satisfying, contrast has been fine-tuned to perfection, and midrange grays are striking.

The centerpiece of WWII in 3D, though, is a newly restored (albeit incredibly short) Nazi propaganda film, never before seen by the public, shot in 3D in 1943. In it, German soldiers aim and fire an 88mm flak gun at enemy aircraft using a stereoscopic range finder. The content makes it a less-than-thrilling discovery, but the 3D presentation doesn't falter. It isn't as absorbing as the still 3D photography, but A&E's transfer does its job and does it well. The brief 3D film footage is followed by a series of Ally aerial reconnaissance photographs, and it becomes very clear how the Allied forces found the 3D photos helpful when planning ground assaults and invasions. Again, the MVC-encoded 3D presentation doesn't disappoint. If anything disappoints it's the uneven noise that sometimes creeps into the expert and historian interviews, the minor artifacting that haunts an admittedly negligible number of the 21st century segments, and the average fine detail present in many of the modern-day sequences. The recently shot footage doesn't look bad, not by any stretch of the imagination, but it isn't very noteworthy either. Be that as it may, those who purchase WWII in 3D won't have a lot to complain about, and will feel their money has been well spent.


WWII in 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

A&E's proficient DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't exactly extraordinary, but it's more than serviceable. Tom Wilkinson's narration is clear, grounded and perfectly intelligible, as are the voices of the various experts, historians and witnesses featured in the film. Sound effects are almost ambient in nature, but considering they aren't native to the images and footage on display, it's more than appropriate. Likewise, the ever-present score is restrained but respectful, knowing (and maintaining) its place in the mix. LFE output, meanwhile, is cautious but strong, rear speaker activity is subdued but subtly enveloping, and dynamics are on point. The experience is front-heavy on the whole and Wilkinson's narration lords over the soundscape, sure. But that's the nature of the documentary game. All things considered, WWII in 3D conducts itself with sonic honor and never allows the audio to overwhelm or detract from the 3D imagery in any way.
