Patton

 (1970)

Patton Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and solid audio in this must-own 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 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: George C. Scott, Karl Malden, Michael Bates, Karl Michael Vogler, Edward Binns, Jack Gwillim
Director: Franklin J. Schaffner

Patton Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Patton debuts in high definition with an image quality that's simply stunning, far superior to any and all expectations I had for the transfer. The film's 1080p, 2:20:1 framed imagery looks like it was filmed yesterday. The movie screams to be witnessed on a large screen, and I felt my 65" television didn't do the scope of the movie justice. This Blu-ray disc is simply a revelation, and any and all fans of Patton are going to be ecstatic. The transfer is crisp, absolutely pristine, beautiful, and features exquisite detail, this Blu-ray edition far surpasing the quality of the two-disc DVD version of the film I own that came out in late 1999. It's not even close, really, the difference night and day, the DVD appearing soft, far less vibrant, and showcasing painfully less detail than is evident on this incredible Blu-ray disc. The Blu-ray is virtually free of any and all print blemishes, scratches, and pops that are clearly evident over the entirety of the DVD image, although a few stray hairs and nicks do creep up every now and then. Look at the image of a dead body with two scorpions walking on it just after the beginning credits are through rolling. Every single rock and grain of sand are seen individually, the detail so high that the viewer is put right in the middle of this war-ravaged area. I also noticed small nuances to the scene I had never seen before, the post-battle carnage a bit more gruesome than I remembered. The film's opening is glorious, the detail so fine on Patton's jacket and the medals thereon so vivid that you can almost reach through the screen and touch them. From first frame to last, the image is incredibly bright and clean, always sharp and radiant with excellent color reproduction and very little softness. Blacks are true and deep, and flesh tones rate as impeccably perfect. This film has barely aged a day in nearly 40 years (at least on this version), and while Patton doesn't look like I, Robot, this disc merits a top rating nevertheless, this 1970 film looking far superior to most discs on the market, 38 year old catalogue title or not.


Patton Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Patton fights on Blu-ray with an uncompressed DTS-HD MA 5.1 sound mix. The most noticeable problem here is a hiss that accompanies parts of the sound mix, a hiss that was also evident on my DVD copy's Dolby Digital 5.1 track. It's unfortunate, because that's the only thing keeping this track from achieving a level of excellence rarely heard on a soundtrack of this age. It's not as dynamic, crisp, or detailed as the tracks accompanying the new releases, but still packs quite the wallop nevertheless. The film is more dialogue-driven than it is action-oriented, and the listener is never disappointed with this aspect of the track. George C. Scott's harsh tone comes through loud and clear. The film's opening imagery along with Scott's excellent delivery definitely succeeds in making us feel like a member of the audience Patton is addressing. Jerry Goldsmith's fantastic and Oscar-nominated score comes to life like never before, every note crystal-clear and exciting, all the pomp and circumstance of the score at a parade in honor of Patton early in the film sounding better than ever. Surrounds are put to fine use at times, but ambiance and nuances are not generally to be heard. Directionality and panning are very good during the battle sequences. As two German planes strafe Patton's headquarters in chapter nine (in one of the film's most famous scenes), the roar of the engines and the speed of the planes can be felt encircling the room and buzzing back and forth for their runs. Bass isn't earth-shattering, but there are definitely some rumblings to be heard in the action sequences. The battle of El Qatar, found in chapter 11, is the first major engagement of the film. The action is loud but not as well-defined as would be expected of a newer, flashier flick, but what we do hear is frighteningly effective as explosions rock every channel and gunfire erupts from all around the viewer. Unfortunately the hiss is also audible here and proves somewhat distracting. Still, as a dialogue-driven biopic rather than a straight action film, what Fox has delivered for this Blu-ray package is nearly marvelous, all things considered.
