Knightriders

 (1981)

Knightriders Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Knightriders is the story of a troupe of motorcyclists who are members of a traveling Renaissance Faire. They move from town to town staging full medieval jousting tournaments with combatants in suits of armor, wielding lances, battle-axes, maces and broadswords. The spectacle of this magnificent pageant soon garners national attention much to the dismay of the current king of this Camelot.

For more about Knightriders and the Knightriders Blu-ray release, see Knightriders Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Ed Harris, Tom Savini, Gary Lahti, Patricia Tallman, Martin Ferrero, Scott H. Reiniger
Director: George A. Romero

Knightriders Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.84:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, George A. Romero's Knightriders arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

There are no traces of excessive denoising corrections. Edge-enhancement is also not a serious issue of concern. Color reproduction is also very good - there is a good range of warm but very natural blues, greens, reds, browns, and grays. Needless to say, the film has a very solid and very pleasing organic look. When blown through a digital projector, depth and especially fluidity are certainly some of the best I've seen on older films in Arrow Video's catalog. Close-ups in particular are often quite wonderful (see screencapture #4). There is no edge flicker. Also, there are no large damage marks, debris, cuts, or stains (I only noticed a couple of extremely small flecks). Lastly, there are no serious compression anomalies to report in this review. To sum it all up, this is a very solid organic presentation of Knightriders which is guaranteed to please fans of the film. (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).


Knightriders Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Arrow Video have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is excellent. It has a very good range of nuanced dynamics that effectively enhance the many action sequences throughout the film. Donald Rubinstein's score also gets a strong boost. The dialog is exceptionally clean, stable, and always easy to follow. There are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
