Rio Lobo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Rio Lobo isn't quite as crisp and satisfying as one would expect of a Paramount catalogue Blu-ray title. The studio has seemingly slapped a dated and slightly tattered HD master onto Blu-ray, and the results are less than striking. The image holds up reasonably well, but never demonstrates more than basic competency in any area of concern. The film opens with some terribly heavy wobble and features some lingering debris over the opening title sequence; the former disappears as the movie gets underway, but the latter remains throughout, with pops, scratches, stains, and stray lines sometimes appearing in such bulk as to be a distraction from the movie. Colors are slightly faded, not bad looking but not at all vibrant, with weak greens, uninspired blues, and dusty earth tones that are bland even for shades of tan. Detail is the transfer's best asset, and even that is sometimes shaky. The 1080p resolution will allow for greater crispness and stability on larger displays, but even then detailing is merely adequate, with seams on a train, the worn wooden lines on a restaurant table, natural vegetation, and facial and clothing textures all ranging from fair-to-good, never dropping to "poor" but never ascending to "excellent." Blacks are fair, with both day-for-night and night-for-night shots holding up equally well. There are a handful of blocky backgrounds and poor color gradations, neither of which are major causes for concern. Film grain is light at best and seemingly scrubbed away at worst, but never, it seems, to the detriment of fine detailing. Rio Lobo could certainly use a once-over, if not a full-blown restoration. As it is, this transfer's primary asset will be its stability on larger displays.


Rio Lobo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Rio Lobo's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack fares somewhat better than its 1080p video counterpart. The picture opens with guitar strums that are satisfactorily airy and crisp, with music in general enjoying an effortless flow and nice spacing across the front. While lacking in absolute clarity and seamlessness, the overall presentation is quite good. However, the "5.1" monicker sometimes seems as if it is just for show. For as many surround elements as there may be, there's an equal number of instances where the material seems unnaturally confined to the front. Ambient effects in particular are limited in both range and space, but a moving train -- as somewhat puny and absent of real energy as it may seem -- does manage to rumble right through the listening areal. A gunfight at the end of the film also demonstrates some vigor and clarity. Dialogue is generally crisp and accurate as it stays grounded in the center channel. This is by no means a revealing or all-time great soundtrack, but for the most part it certainly suffices and then some.
