Ride with the Devil

 (1999)

Ride with the Devil Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

With this new director’s cut, Ang Lee reconstructs his original vision for his Civil War epic, Ride with the Devil, an intimate, harrowing look at a country torn in half, told from a daringly unorthodox perspective. Set in 1862, during the Kansas-Missouri border war, the film stars Tobey Maguire as Jake and Skeet Ulrich as his friend Jack Bull; they join the Confederate-sympathizing Bushwhackers after Jack’s father is killed by marauding members of the abolitionist Jayhawkers. But Ride with the Devil is also the story of their unusual ally Holt (an astonishing Jeffrey Wright), who’s fighting for the South despite being a former slave. A rumination on identity and loyalty, both political and personal, Ride with the Devil is a provocative challenge to preconceptions about America’s bloodiest conflict.

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

Ride with the Devil Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Ang Lee's Ride with the Devil arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears in the booklet provided with the Blu-ray disc:

"Director Ang Lee and director of photography Frederick Elmes supervised and approved this new high-definition digital transfer, which was scanned on a Spirit 4K Datacine from the 35mm interpositive and the original camera negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction."

Aside from some extremely minor flicker that I noticed early into the film, everything else looks terrific. Fine object detail is impressive, contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film and clarity pleasing. Even during some of the poorly lit scenes, and specifically during the Winter hibernation footage, the image quality remains very strong. The film's color-scheme is also impressive. Blues, greens, yellows, reds, browns, blacks and whites are rich and very well saturated. Some of the panoramic scenes, for example, look like giant pictures. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are never a serious issue of concern. Neither are banding and aliasing. I also did not detect any traces of heavy noise filtering. When blown through a digital projector, Ride with the Devil also looks pleasingly stable. Finally, I did not spot any large cuts, warps, debris, or stains to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Ride with the Devil Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is solid. The bass is potent and punchy, the rear channels intelligently used and the high-frequencies not overdone. During the raids is where the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 shines - the attack on Lawrence, Kansas, in particular, has some good surround effects. Elsewhere, there are a couple of shootouts that are also quite strong. The dialog is crisp, clean and very easy to follow. There are no balance issues with Mychael Danna's music score either. Finally, I did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report in this review.
