Patton

 (1970)

Patton Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Patton is a three-dimensional bronze bust of World War II field general George S. Patton who wrote poetry, fired pistols at strafing fighter planes, and loved the United States of America with a lofty and historical zeal. Tracing his personal rivalries with such generals as Rommel and Montgomery, his problematic treatment of his own men, and his nearly runaway contempt for diplomacy, the film triumphs as an enduring portrait of a complex and larger-than-life figure.

For more about Patton and the Patton Blu-ray release, see Patton Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: George C. Scott, Karl Malden, Stephen Young (I), Michael Strong, Carey Loftin, Albert Dumortier
Director: Franklin J. Schaffner

Patton Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

I'll cut my fellow reviewer Marty Liebman some slack regarding his glowing assessment of the original 2008 release of Patton. Back then, we were all in awe of seeing our favorite classics in high definition for the first time, and perhaps more willing to overlook some blatant picture quality issues. The fact is, that initial Blu-ray edition looks bad—smeary, overly de-noised, robbed of detail—and if you need cold, hard, indisputable evidence, compare this full-sized screenshot from the first release to this one from the all-new 1080p/AVC- encoded transfer. In the former, notice how there's no texture to George C. Scott's face. Notice how his dog's fur is weirdly smooth. Notice the distinct lack of detail in the driver's uniform. In the shot from the remaster, however, fine film grain is visible, textures are keenly defined, and the picture appears infinitely more natural and lifelike. Go on, grain-haters, I challenge you to defend the first shot. It can't be done.

This new release is how Patton should've looked on Blu-ray all along. The clarity from the 65mm image is simply extraordinary from start to finish. The weft of cloth, the intricacies of the sets, the dirt on helmets, the detail in the actors' facial features—with the grain structure intact, everything is tighter, more palpable, better resolved. The tonal qualities of the picture are noticeably improved as well, with punchier contrast, denser colors, and more accurate skin tones. There are some almost imperceptible color/brightness fluctuations in certain longer shots—this is not uncommon when using such a large negative, which is more prone to uneven development—but otherwise, I can't drum up a single complaint about this revamped edition. The print is pristine. There are no compression quirks. No encode hiccups. Not only has Fox righted the PQ wrongs of the first release, they've also delivered one of the best high definition transfers of a catalog title in recent memory, right up there with The Sound of Music and Lawrence of Arabia. Patton fans who care about accurate film restoration will definitely find the double-dip worth it.


Patton Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

From what I can tell, this new edition seems to retain the same lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track of the previous release, and that's a good thing. As Marty noted in his 2008 review, there is a slight hiss at times, but it's really only apparent if you're actively listening for it. For the most part, this is an impressive mix for a film from 1970. The emphasis is largely on dialogue—this is more of a biopic than an out-and-out war movie—and it almost always comes through cleanly and clearly, although there are two or three instances where Patton's barked orders are a bit peaked and harsh. The more action-heavy sequences arrive with significant sonic aplomb. Straffing planes criss-cross between speakers. Bullets zip through the rears and artillery shells land with potent explosions. There's little in the way of environmental ambience, but there are certainly plenty of directional and panning effects. Jerry Goldsmith's appropriately martial score is wonderfully realized here as well, with crisp trumpets, rat-a-tat-tat snare drums, and other marching band instrumentation, all carefully spread throughout the soundfield. Along with Spanish and French dubs, the disc includes optional English, Mandarin, and Cantonese subtitles.
