Highlander

 (1986)

Highlander Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

During a fierce sword battle in the 1500s, Connor MacLeod, a simple Scotsman known as a poor fighter, is mortally wounded -- but he does not die. MacLeod learns from the mysterious Ramírez that he is of a race of immortals. These rare knights never age and never reproduce, they can only meet death by the blade of another of their kind. Leaping back and forth through the centuries, MacLeod once again meets the evil Kurgan who nearly killed him 500 years ago. <b> There can be only one.</b>

Highlander Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

My hopes were actually quite high when Highlander's AVC encoded 1080p image started. This film has always looked pretty squishy soft in its many home video presentations, and after the noticeable telecine wobble of the credits had passed, I was really nicely surprised at the uptick in sharpness and clarity in the opening wrestling sequence. Alas, like so much about this film, this Blu-ray transfer is at times shockingly uneven. Large segments are bright and clear, especially the wonderful historical scenes in Scotland, and then we get pretty appalling softness and an incredible amount of digital noise in other shots. In fact, I almost started wondering if two different film stocks had been used for master shots and coverage. Masters are often very soft with just overwhelming noise (look at the establishing shot on the Central Park bridge for a startling example), while close-ups tend to be noticeably sharper with at least acceptable levels of detail. It's really odd and confounding. Colors are notably better saturated on this release, though contrast, especially in the many dark and/or nighttime scenes, isn't great, and black levels are all over the place.


Highlander Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Highlander's nice lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is surprisingly spry for its age, especially with regard to the great Queen song score, but it still lacks consistent surround activity that could have made it a knockout. While the fidelity and especially the dynamic range of this track is quite commendable, with thundering lows and absolutely no distortion or damage, dialogue scenes play resolutely front and center a lot of the time. There is some nice ambient environmental noise and great sound effects, especially in the historically placed scenes, and LFE here is very impressive. But it's the Queen score where the lossless audio really reaches its full potential, with Freddie Mercury and the boys sounding fantastic.
