Hells Angels on Wheels Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Although it was shot quickly on a low budget, Hells Angels on Wheels has a careful and deliberate visual design. Rush said that he wanted the towns to be neat and orderly and the landscapes to be beautiful, so that the Hells Angels would look like "litter". While not without its issues, the 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray from specialty publisher Hen's Tooth Video presents the the late László Kovács' photography in a form closer to the original intention than has likely been seen since the film first played in theaters.

The source element is in decent condition, though it has some flaws. For the first few minutes, two thin vertical black lines run closely together down the right side of the screen. They are more or less visible, and sometimes disappear altogether, depending on what is "behind" them. Then they vanish for good. Small scratches and print knicks appear throughout the film, but most only last for a single frame, and the eye doesn't detect them in playback; they only become evident if you go frame-by-frame. All in all, given the typical handling of film elements by studios, let alone independent distributors, in the era before home video, it is amazing to find Hells Angels on Wheels in such good condition.

The image is soft but detailed, with a reasonably fine grain structure that does not appear to have fallen victim to inappropriate electronic manipulation. Long shots frequently appear to be blurry, but one has to recall that Kovács was acting as both camera operator and focus puller, and he was frequently anticipating an object in the foreground. A good example occurs in the wedding scene, where the minister and the makeshift "aisle" creating by the Angels and their bikes are slightly out of focus, because Kovács is clearly prepared for the bride and groom who he knows will enter the shot immediately in front of him.

Colors are vivid, so that the green grass Rush wanted to emphasize is very green, and the outfits that scream "Sixties!" do so in all their pink and purple glory. The blacks that are so crucial to capturing the Angels garb (especially Buddy's) are well-represented, and the image, while bright, never appears to have too much contrast. With limited extras, the 95-minute film fits on a BD-25 with an average bitrate of 25 Mbps, which is enough to handle the lively fight scenes in between the quiet conversations.


Hells Angels on Wheels Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original mono track is presented as PCM 2.0, and it's effective within the limits of the source. The dialogue is clear, and so are the sounds of fighting, beer bottles breaking, engines roaring and tires spinning. The dynamic range isn't nearly what you'd find in a contemporary soundtrack, but that's probably a good thing. A film like Hells Angels on Wheels would lose its low-budget, exploitation vibe if the Angels' hogs vibrated the viewing space from all sides with digitally enhanced capabilities offered by today's multi-channel sound formats.
