Cross of Iron Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.84:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Sam Peckinpah's Cross of Iron arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

A wonderful high-definition transfer! It is not flawless, but it has a terrific organic look that does the film justice. I've gone through a couple of SDVD releases of Cross of Iron during the years and this is clearly the very best the film has ever looked. (Unfortunately, the press materials I received do not specify when and where the film was restored).

First of all, there are no traces of excessive DNR corrections. As a result, the overwhelming majority of the natural film grain has been retained. Some light noise occasionally pops up, but fine object detail is excellent, even during the massive fight inside the factory. Second, contrast levels remain stable throughout the entire film. Color reproduction is also excellent - the greens, brown, reds, blues, grays, and blacks look fresh and healthy (on the old R2 UK SDVD release, which uses a dated Studio Canal transfer, the film's delicate color-scheme is very problematic). This said, there are a couple of scenes where some extremely light sharpening is noticeable - for example, when Steiner's men meet the Russian women - but it is never overly distracting. Heavy artifacting or ringing are never a serious of concern. Finally, various flecks, debris, scratches, and small cuts have been removed. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content. Also, please note that the disc's main menu can be set in English or German).


Cross of Iron Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0 (with portions of Russian). For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. (Optional German subtitles are also available if one sets the disc's main menu in German).

The English LPCM 2.0 track enhances the many battle scenes in the film very well. Obviously, the dynamic intensity is not as impressive as that of recent war films that have appeared on Blu-ray, but the sound has very pleasing depth and vibrancy; there are no balance issues either. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow. For the record, there are no problematic pops, cracks, hissings, or audio dropouts.
