Red Dawn

 (1984)

Red Dawn Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

In the heartland of the United States of America, Russian and Cuban paratroopers begin to drop outside while classes go on in the high school. When the soldiers begin killing everyone in sight, local teens take to the hills to avoid the new totalitarian regime established in their little town and, as we later learn, throughout the world. As country folk, they are well familiarized with survival tactics and hunting, which allows them to carry out sophisticated acts of military sabotage, upsetting the balance of power in town with their guerilla warfare.

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

Director: John Milius
Writers: John Milius, Kevin Reynolds

Red Dawn Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Red Dawn drops onto Blu-ray with a fairly good, well-rounded 1080p transfer that's certainly flawed in places but generally pleasant for a low-cost catalogue release, even one that's been on the Blu-ray radar since the format's inception. The image is speckled over the establishing shots, and they remain throughout though not quite so thickly. The opening title flyover appears pasty, but definition, sharpness, and clarity improve drastically when the action shifts to the ground. The image isn't going to dazzle, but its stability on large screens and general crispness will satisfy longtime fans. Details are quite nice, whether clothes and faces or rocky terrains and dense foliage. There are some softer shots, but such are the exception. The image displays a moderate grain field and rarely shows signs scrubbing. Colors are steady and accurate, never too bold nor too reserved. From bright white snow to darker apparel, the palette is such that it goes largely unnoticed, which means its effective in reproducing clothes, objects, and the film's various seasonal vistas. Blacks are adequate and flesh tones never drift very far from the natural. Perhaps the image's greatest drawback is the presence of unwanted edge enhancement. It's not excessive but is enough to distract in some shots. Otherwise, this is a fair presentation; it should have been better, but considering the low price point it's hard to argue too much with what is a good, not great, end product.


Red Dawn Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Much like its video counterpart, Red Dawn's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack isn't going to be mistaken for a new, explosive Action presentation, but the older, somewhat stale ingredients are nevertheless mixed together to passably good end results. The opening theme proves quite impressive; though perhaps a hair muddled, it enjoys a very strong, robust listening environment presence, nice spacing, fine surround usage, and a noticeably fine sensation to the electronic elements within the music. Gunfire sounds rather muffled and not too terribly aggressive in terms of volume, but the basic sonic signature does remain true to older home video presentations. Automatic weapons fire does hit hard with some more potent bass in chapter fourteen. Tank shells and RPG projectiles often whiz through the stage to fine effect, seamlessly zipping from one end to the other and all but making the audience dodge. Distant gunfire effortlessly drifts through the stage at times while natural woodland ambience, the background audio propaganda heard at the imprisonment camp, and other assorted ambient effects easily set the stage for several crucial scenes. Dialogue remains clear and focused up the middle. This is a good track that mostly disappoints with that muddled gunfire, but overall it's definitely a step up from older presentations. Longtime fans who know the movie inside and out should appreciate the track's benefits but also recognize the room for improvement.
