Dog Day Afternoon

 (1975)

Dog Day Afternoon Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The robbery should have taken 10 minutes. 4 hours later, the bank was like a circus sideshow. 8 hours later, it was the hottest thing on live T.V. 12 hours later, it was all history. And it's all true.

For more about Dog Day Afternoon and the Dog Day Afternoon Blu-ray release, see Dog Day Afternoon Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Al Pacino, John Cazale, Charles Durning, Sully Boyar, Chris Sarandon (I), Lance Henriksen
Director: Sidney Lumet

Dog Day Afternoon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Until the advent of DVD, Pacino's facial expressions, body language cues and method acting were conveyed to viewers in NTSC broadcasts and video tape showing a 1.33:1 aspect ratio. The resolution was terrible, the picture blurry, the sound muddy and distorted, the videostage severely cropped. Then came the digital. Watching the second-generation DVD and two-disc extended version was like lifting a veil. The DVD greatly improved the imagery and audio, restoring the picture to its original ratio. But we were still left with NTSC. The resolution was nowhere near film quality.

All that changed as of April 10, 2007 when Warner Home Video released Dog Day Afternoon on Blu-ray. For the first time, the movie sets and characters have life-like definition and detail. Warner's use of the VC-1 codec may not stack up to Sony's use of MPEG-4 (not a fair comparison giving the new movies Sony releases on BD), but one thing is for sure: the 1080p resolution of Dog Day Afternoon absolutely trounces what was available before.

Watch the way Sonny's face drops when he learns the police have the bank surrounded. His expression is imbued with details that were simply missing in NTSC versions of Dog Day Afternoon. Even the actors' clothes, marking this film firmly in the 1970s, show incredible clarity and definition. Grain noise is prevalent, but it provides an analog warmth to the picture, as though we are seeing real film. The details shine through in stunning manner compared to the DVD. It won't win awards for picture quality, but Dog Day Afternoon is impressively detailed with gorgeous contrast. I witnessed a few digital artefacts during the final scenes. But even that content maintained good black level.


Dog Day Afternoon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film will not win any audio awards, either. After treating my ears to the SACD version of Elton John's Tumbleweed Connection album, Amoreena sounded comparably two-dimensional and harsh on Warner's mono Dolby Digital soundtrack. Not surprisingly, it lacked any depth or soundstage. But when the music ended, the audio was passable, and even a significant improvement compared to the sound of previous versions of the film. Voices and gunshots, footsteps and chanting bystanders all sound remarkably clear and convincing. In a nutshell, the audio doesn't hold back Dog Day Afternoon, but you won't want to use it to demo your system.
