Marathon Man

 (1976)

Marathon Man Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

In New York City, the brother of infamous Nazi war criminal Dr. Christian Szell, "the White Angel" of Auschwitz, dies in a fiery car accident. Szell is forced out of hiding in South America to retrieve valuables safeguarded by his late brother, but first he must be certain he is not in danger. Szell's suspicions focus on Thomas "Babe" Levy, a Columbia graduate student, marathon runner, and the brother of Henry "Doc" Levy, one of the couriers employed by Szell's now-dead brother. One day, the unsuspecting Babe, unaware of his brother's activities, finds himself tied to a chair and interrogated by Szell, a former concentration-camp dentist who knows how to inflict pain. Szell repeats a single enigmatic question, "Is it safe?"

Marathon Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, John Schlesinger's Marathon Man arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Paramount Pictures UK.

Please note that the main menu of this release can be set in one of the following languages: English, Danish, German, Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Latin America), French, French (Benelux), Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Norwegian, Portuguese, Finnish, and Swedish.

The high-definition transfer has been struck from a dated source, but the basics we typically address in these reviews are in decent shape. Excluding some extremely light noise as well as sporadic artifacts, image depth and clarity are indeed pleasing. The daylight footage, in particular, looks quite good. Colors are stable but never as well saturated as they could be. However, no attempts have been made to digitally boost them. Furthermore, there are no traces of problematic degraining corrections. Some minor fluctuations are present, but they are source related, not the product of compromising digital corrections. There are no traces of problematic sharpening corrections either. Overall image stability is good. There are no large damage marks, debris, warps, cuts, or stains to report in this review. All in all, while there is most definitely room for improvement, Marathon Man does have a rather pleasing organic look. The inherited source limitations, however, are occasionally easy to spot. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray release. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Marathon Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are seven standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, German Dolby Digital 2.0, Spanish Dolby Digital 2.0, Spanish (Latin America) Dolby Digital 2.0, French Dolby Digital 2.0, Italian Dolby Digital 2.0, and Portuguese Dolby Digital 2.0. For the record, Paramount Pictures UK have provided optional English, English SDH, French, Spanish, Spanish (Latin America), Portuguese, Japanese, German, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish subtitles for the main feature.

Depth and clarity on the 5.1 track are very good. The overall dynamic intensity is also good (see the explosions in the beginning of the film). Michael Small's claustrophobic soundtrack also benefits greatly from the lossless treatment - there are various ambient sounds throughout the film that are very well enhanced (see Babe's fist run in the park). The dialog is crisp, stable, and easy to follow. Also, there is no annoying background hiss. This being said, I would have preferred to have the original mono mix instead of this new 5.1 track. Or at least have the original mix offered together with the new 5.1 track.
