Cape Fear

 (1962)

Cape Fear Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Small-town lawyer Sam Bowden's life becomes torturous when Max Cady re-enters his life. Cady went to jail for 8 years after Bowden testified that Cady attacked a young woman. Now that Cady has been released, he begins to terrorize Bowden and his family, particularly targeting Bowden's daughter, Nancy. Initially, Cady uses his newfound knowledge of the law (learned in prison) to annoy the Bowdens, then poisons the family dog... Who's next ?

Cape Fear Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with VC-1 and granted a 1080p transfer, J. Lee Thompson's Cape Fear arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal Studios-UK.

There are traces of mild filtering throughout the entire film. Some are easier to spot (see how the shadows break up under Mitchum's eyes in screenshot #1), but others are extremely small and practically unnoticeable (see screenshot #14). This said, some light grain has been retained, but it is not always evenly distributed. Some of the best looking sequences are during the second half of the film, before and after Mitchum and Peck meet at the docks (see screenshot #3). Color reproduction is also very strong here, with the blacks, whites, and the variety of grays looking perfectly balanced. Edge-enhancement is not a serious issue of concern, but there are a couple of scenes where some harshness occasionally creeps in. There are no serious banding and aliasing issues either. Lastly, the high-definition transfer is free of large cuts, damage marks, stains, and warps. All in all, the presentation is decent enough to recommend the Blu-ray, but it is clear that it could have been a lot stronger. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu. Please note that the main menu can be set in one of the following languages: English, Japanese, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish (Latin America), Russian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Mandarin).


Cape Fear Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are nine audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, Japanese DTS 2.0, French DTS 2.0 Italian DTS 2.0, Spanish DTS 2.0, German DTS 2.0, Portuguese (Brazil) DTS 2.0, Spanish (Latin America) DTS 2.0, and Russian DTS 2.0. For the record, Universal Studios-UK have provided optional English SDH, Japanese, French, Italian, German, Spanish (continental), Spanish (Latin America), Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (continental), Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Traditional Mandarin subtitles for the main feature.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track opens up the film very well. Bernard Herrmann's score, in particular, benefits the most, but the dialog is also consistently crisp, clean, and stable. Still, the dynamic amplitude is quite limited, so do not expect the loseless track to test your system. For the record, there are no synch issues, distortions, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
