Big Jake Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Big Jake rides onto Blu-ray with a strong, sometimes stunning, and never terrible 1080p Blu-ray transfer. Of Paramount's trio of Father's Day-geared Western releases -- Big Jake, Rio Lobo, and A Man Called Horse -- Big Jake is easily the finest looking of the bunch. Fine detail is quite strong throughout; whether the crisp sandy and pebbly frontier terrains, warm interior McCandles ranch odds and ends, or the usual clothing and facial textures, the transfer crisply and efficiently shows off all of the intricate details the movie has to offer. Colors are splendidly steady. Though dominated by unassuming earthen shades, splotches of reds; greens; blues; and other assorted, more vibrant colors are expertly revealed. Black levels are a bit inconsistent, appearing far too absorbing in one scene but well-balanced and playing nicely with fine shadow details the next. The image does suffer through some unsightly flickering, a few smeary streaks across the top of the frame, and a handful of spots and scratches, but none of these issues represent debilitating problems. Big Jake's 1080p transfer is rounded into form by the retention of a fine layer of natural grain, which does messily spike in a few instances but generally remains light and unobtrusive, accentuating the picture to help give it that finished cinematic texture.


Big Jake Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Big Jake features an accommodating but far-from-expert DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The material certainly feels cramped from start to finish, with both music and sound effects often gasping for breath and begging for a more pronounced and sprawling presentation. Elmer Bernstein's score is nicely clear but lacks volume while yearning for more energy. Spacing isn't an issue, but the music seems somehow not quite allowed to reach full potency. The same may be said of sound effects, most of which are shallow and unassuming, whether horses galloping through knee-deep waters or gunshots that ring with some clarity but lack volume and raw power. Fortunately, dialogue is center-focused and exceptionally clear. Big Jake's soundtrack plays awfully little, but it's at least fundamentally competent.
