Retreat, Hell! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Retreat, Hell! is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. This film was made with the cooperation of the U.S. Marines (something that's at least a little surprising, considering the lack of typical wartime chest beating in the film), which also provided the filmmakers with a lot of stock footage of basic training and various battle scenes. That means the film elements tend to ping pong back and forth between pretty decent looking "contemporary" sequences and often much more ragged looking archival footage, some of which is in quite bad condition (several of the screenshots are of this archival footage, which is pretty easily identifiable). If that "stitched together" approach can be overlooked, things here are much in line with the bulk of Olive catalog releases we've seen from this era. (Contemporary) elements are in overall good condition, with only the expected flecks and specks creeping in from time to time. Contrast is generally quite good, and the image is consistent and stable. There is some pretty bad telecine wobble during the opening credits and final placard.


Retreat, Hell! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Retreat, Hell! features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix that is very nicely full bodied, aside from just a few moments of wobbliness. Once again, the opening credits provide the biggest problem to overcome here, with just a bit of wavering in the opening version of the Marine's Hymn (some may recognize the film's composer, William Lava, who scored a lot of the Looney Tunes shorts and also wrote some great television themes in the sixties, including F Troop). After that, things improve markedly, with dialogue and the often quite boisterous battle sound effects ringing out with authority and clarity.
