Rio Bravo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Warner Brothers brings the classic Western Rio Bravo to Blu-ray with a handsome 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. While not a sparkling sensation in the same way that something like Avatar lights up the screen, Rio Bravo looks marvelous in its own right. Colors appear slightly over-saturated at times, and there's something of a dusty tone to the picture that's understandable considering the rustic structures, wood and leather goods, and the main dirt road through town that are all constant companions throughout the film. Still, colors more often than not look rather good if not slightly unnatural in a 1950s sort of Technicolor way, whether Chance's red shirt as seen at the beginning of the film or the many shades of brown that often dominate the picture in the form of building façades, furnishings, leather goods, and rifle stocks. Unfortunately, flesh tones often veer heavily towards a red shade, and skin -- particularly in several shots of Dean Martin -- can look somewhat pasty and unnaturally smooth. Still, there's a fair amount grain retention throughout; it's heavier in some places than in others but is nevertheless an almost constant companion during the picture. Detailing ranges from average to borderline exceptional; brick walls enjoy a noticeably rough texture, and viewers will note the wear on leather canteens, the scratches and nicks in rifle stocks, and even some of the more intricate nitty-gritty details of the town's dirt road. Blacks hold up nicely, too, taking on a dark and inky shade without overpowering the image to a great extent. The image is also sharp; edges and backgrounds sometimes go a bit soft, though there are just as many instances where they stay crisp and natural all around. A slight bit of aliasing is visible on several checkerboard pattern garments, but the transfer is generally free of other unwanted anomalies. Rio Bravo looks great; it's certainly overshadowed by some of the other, more visually pristine classic films on Blu-ray, but all things considered -- particularly that the film has recently celebrated its 50th birthday -- it's impossible not to like what Warner Brothers has done with this cherished and deserving classic.


Rio Bravo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Rio Bravo rides onto Blu-ray with a meager Dolby Digital 1.0 mono soundtrack. There's little expectation for the track and it delivers nothing more and nothing less than a capable offering that's underwhelming next to the whiz-bang likes of Terminator Salvation but is certainly suitable for the film. Puny and somewhat tinny, it understandably lacks any vigor or punch, but it proves sufficiently adequate in every area. Dialogue is suitably clear, focused, and sharp. Music lacks a more pronounced presentation, playing as a bit soft and, of course, without much weight or spacing to it. The picture delivers minimalist sound effects; the beating of a drum during a funeral procession early on, the sound of hooves beating against the pebbly terrain, and other environmental niceties are clear and distinguishable enough. The picture's strongest chance for sonic success comes at the final showdown; gunshots and explosions demonstrate a surprising bit of power for a mono track, but they obviously don't hold a candle (or a stick of dynamite) to better presentations. Expectations are key to this sort of track; it's best to go in and enjoy the presentation as it was meant to be heard and become immersed in the visuals and the story, allowing the 1.0 track do it job as a supporting rather than primary element to the Rio Bravo experience.
