Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

 (2007)

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

America loves Cox! Behind the music is the up-and-down-and-up-again story of a legend whose songs would change a nation. On his rock 'n' roll spiral, Cox sleeps with 411 women, marries three times, has 22 kids and 14 stepkids, stars in his own '70s TV variety show, collects friends ranging from Elvis to the Beatles to a chimp, and gets addicted to — and then kicks — every drug known to man... but despite it all, Cox grows into a national icon and eventually earns the love of a good woman — longtime backup singer Darlene.

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Walk Hard arrives on Blu-ray sporting a very nice 1080p transfer in the movie's original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The movie will just about instantly leap off of your screen during the opening scenes in Springberry, Alabama. It's clear that this scene has been tweaked in post production to give it a colorful and idyllic feel. Fortunately, this is entirely consistent with the film's theatrical presentation. Of course, Walk Hard was "filmed" digitally, so one would expect a pristine source free of any dirt or other print-related anomalies - - and that's exactly what is presented. Much of Walk Hard is extremely colorful and vibrant. The film has a nice polish to it with pumped up color saturation and plenty of rich hues to keep your display busy.

Walk Hard also scores high with it's total lack of any edge enhancement, noise or any kind of digital interference or compression artifacts that might otherwise distract from the viewing experience. Much has been made of the vibrant look of the film and that it, at times, seems too artificial. My take on that is that this Blu-ray looks exactly like the film looked in the theater, so this disc is as accurate a rendering of Walk Hard as could ever be expected. Walk Hard might not look like a Pixar film visually, but it looks exactly like Walk Hard is supposed to look. Recommended.


Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

I can't imagine that there would be any controversy over the audio section of Walk Hard. Presented in Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround (48kHz/24-bit), the film sounds terrific. Additionally, Sony has provided a French TrueHD track as well as Dolby Digital tracks in both Spanish and Portuguese. The TrueHD track does a fantastic job of effectively portraying the film's many live concert sequences with abundant surround usage and crystal clear vocals. In a film where the joke is often-times the song itself, this is critical. If I can't understand what Dewey Cox is singing, then what's the point? Fortunately, this is never a problem and the sound does its part to move the story along.

Being that there aren't more than a couple of mildly action oriented scenes in Walk Hard, the remainder of the film is a bit more on the dialogue driven side. This is, after all, a comedy and it needs to succeed on the strength of its jokes. In that respect, the TrueHD track again superbly does it's job. Ultimately, Walk Hard sounds great on Blu-ray. This is hardly the audio track from Independence Day, but it is still a very pleasing and appropriate track.
