Once Upon a Time in the West Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Once Upon a Time in the West's Blu-ray release serves as further proof that it's hard to beat Paramount when the studio gives full effort to a title, new or catalogue. Indeed, Sergio Leone's masterpiece Western looks absolutely superb on Blu-ray, serving as one of the finest-looking pictures of its era yet on the high definition format. The image is sharp without appearing excessively so, enhanced by a natural layer of film grain that positively accentuates the wonderful clarity and definition of Leone's and Delli Colli's sweaty, sun-drenched, rustic Western. Textures of old wooden planks, creases in leather, fine sandy and dusty terrain, and weather-worn and sweaty faces never fail to not only impress, but dazzle at the intricacy with which the transfer yields both general and fine detailing across every frame and at most any distance. Clarity is wonderful, softness is rare, and great natural depth is evident in many scenes. Colors are greatly influenced by the harsh lighting of the hot sun beating down on bronzed faces and earthen terrains; tans, yellows, and browns dominate the palette, but each shade no matter how subtle or (however rarely) bold seems perfectly balanced. Black levels, too, are impeccably inky and never crush out critical details in darker scenes. On the negative side of the ledger, slight wobble is evident, a few very subtle pops and scratches remain in spots, and a hint of blockiness and noise infiltrates a few backgrounds, but such problems range from inconsequential at best to minor at worst and never really detract from the overall Blu-ray experience. No doubt Paramount has hit another home run with Once Upon a Time in the West; this comes pretty close to Blu-ray perfection, and fans couldn't have dreamed of a restoration this gorgeous.


Once Upon a Time in the West Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Once Upon a Time in the West's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack is no slouch, either. Purists will be interested in the included original mono presentation, but there's no reason not embrace Paramount's tasteful and authentic-in-feel wider soundtrack. As noted above, sound plays a critical part in Once Upon a Time in the West; minor ambience immediately relocates listeners from the cool dark of the screening room to the sweaty sun-drenched western landscape where slight blowing winds are ever-present but fail to cool the hot and heavy on-screen air. Squeaky windmills, idling trains, buzzing insects, chirping birds, creaking wooden planks, sandy footsteps, and rattly spurs all help to create an authentic Western flair, and the clarity with which each of these enters the soundstage is second-to-none. Of course, music is robust, spacious, and crisp as well, never sounding at all audibly antiquated. Heavier sound effects are equally impressive; shotgun and rifle blasts are tastefully and realistically loud and potent, while the power of a locomotive rumbles with a presence befitting a machine of its size and strength. Imaging is strong and directional effects are few, but listeners will enjoy a few aggressive elements that see sound pass through the listening area, such as a train that pulls into the soundstage from front to back early in the film. Pristine dialogue rounds this superb track into form as another highlight on a disc with no real weak spot of which to speak.
