Firefox / Heartbreak Ridge Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Note: This review is limited to "Firefox". For a review of "Heartbreak Ridge", please see the Heartbreak Ridge Blu-ray review by Martin Liebman.

Eastwood's regular cinematographer from his early directing career, Bruce Surtees, once again earned his sobriquet, "the Prince of Darkness", in the Moscow scenes of Firefox, many of which occur at night and are underlit in the extreme. The blacks on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray are deep and solid, but the grain in the areas where we are supposed to see something is frequently heavier than many Blu-ray fans prefer. At least, though, it's a natural-looking grain structure that hasn't been reduced or filtered. Grain is more finely resolved in daylight scenes, but Firefox has never had an especially sharp image, and no artificial sharpening has been applied to the transfer used for this Blu-ray. The image is soft, because that's how it's supposed to be.

The brightest colors occur at the film's opening when Gant is recruited at his retirement retreat and in his memories of Vietnam. Otherwise, the film's palette consists of the drab hues of Soviet life and the conspiratorial offices of military and intelligence services. It's a relief when Gant and the Firefox MiG-31 take off into bright skies filled with fluffy clouds and eventually fly over the gleaming polar ice cap, although these white backgrounds are what so challenged Dykstra and his effects team in the days of optical matte compositing. A few of the process shots used to insert Gant into Moscow backgrounds are glaringly obvious, but this was the best that could be done prior to the digital revolution.

Compression artifacts were not in evidence. The average bitrate is a respectable 22.96, and although additional space was available on the disc, I doubt that a higher bitrate would have improved the film's appearance beyond what it already is.


Firefox / Heartbreak Ridge Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Note: This review is limited to "Firefox". For a review of "Heartbreak Ridge", please see the Heartbreak Ridge Blu-ray review by Martin Liebman.

Firefox was released in both Dolby Stereo and six-track surround for it 70mm blow-up. Whichever source was used for the Blu-ray's DTS-HD MA 5.1 track, the most obvious beneficiary is the final section of the film depicting Gant's escape in the Firefox MiG-31, which provides a loud and immersive roar of flight, with the sonic perspective switching rapidly back and forth from inside and outside the cockpit. Before the plane takes off, the surrounds make themselves felt occasionally for such things as subway trains, cars whizzing by, gunfire, a display of pyrotechnics (those who know the film will recognize what scene I'm referring to) and, of course, Gant's recurring Vietnam flashbacks. Generally, though, Eastwood and his mixers keep the action front-oriented.

Dialogue is very clear, despite the variety of Russian accents affected by English, German and American actors. The score by Maurice Jarre is not one of his best, and it sounds curiously thin and compressed, even when it attempts to soar in triumph.
