Airplane!

 (1980)

Airplane! Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Voted "one of the ten funniest movies ever made" by the American Film Institute, AIRPLANE! is a masterpiece of off-the-wall comedy. Featuring Robert Hays as an ex-fighter pilot forced to take over the controls of an airliner when the flight crew succumbs to food poisoning; Julie Hagerty as his girlfriend/stewardess/co-pilot; and a cast of all-stars including Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar...and more! Their hilarious high jinks spoof airplane disaster flicks, religious zealots, television commercials, romantic love... the lists whirl by in rapid succession. And the story races from one moment of zany fun to the next!

For more about Airplane! and the Airplane! Blu-ray release, see Airplane! Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Robert Hays, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Julie Hagerty, Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack

Airplane! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Finally, a 1980s Paramount title from the current wave that looks relatively good. Airplane! sports a 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer that doesn't appear to be the victim of a transfer-destroying level of noise reduction. On the contrary, there's a fine layer of active grain and no evidence of excessively smoothed over, waxy-looking faces. Skin textures are suitably complex, as are clothing materials, the seams in the inflatable automatic pilot, and general objects around the plane and inside the airport. Clarity is rather good, and there are several scenes where the string holding up an actor (Ted dancing Disco) or the airplane in exterior shots are readily visible. The image certainly sports a slightly dated appearance, though; colors are strong but not terribly vibrant. However, the brighter hues stand out nicely and naturally, just not with the sort of precision accuracy that might be found in a brand new movie. Black levels are honest, never going too gray and rarely exhibiting excess crush. This is a mostly solid transfer from Paramount; it's a shame neither Planes, Trains & Automobiles nor Footloose look this good.


Airplane! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Airplane!'s DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack proves quite the satisfying experience. Various elements are surprisingly potent, with no shortage of effortless clarity and natural spacing in score delivery. Popular music is rich and pleasing, too. The Disco sequence featuring Stayin' Alive sounds absolutely fantastic; there's energy to spare, the tune is clear as a bell, and it stretches the front half of the soundstage to its limits. Unfortunately, a few sound effects take on a harsher, crunchier, almost indistinct audible texture. The plane crashing into the terminal at the beginning of the film, for instance, lacks both energy and clarity, somewhat lessening the scene's effectiveness. Still, terminal voiceovers are suitably spacious and, combined with the general din around the airport, the listener will feel fairly immersed in that environment. However, Airplane! is primarily a dialogue-based film, and there's no cause for alarm in that regard; the spoken word enjoys sound clarity and remains entrenched in the center speaker. This is a quality, but not perfect, soundtrack from Paramount.
