Some greedy thugs decide that they want to steal a number of silver dollars from him. In the process they also manage to kill his wife and son and destroy his hand. The Major wants revenge so he enlists the help of his war buddy Johnny to meet the thugs in a final showdown.

Rolling Thunder Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, John Flynn'a Rolling Thunder arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Studio Canal.

Even though there are various limitations, I like the high-definition transfer a lot. Here's why:

The presentation is raw and the film looks like film. I would speculate that the high-definition transfer was struck from the best current master, which was most likely prepared some time ago, which is why there are limitations, but the basic film qualities we expect to see when a catalog title transitions to Blu-ray have been retained - there is a healthy dose of light grain throughout the entire film, colors look natural, and detail is pleasing. The best news, however, is that there are no traces of post-production tinkering meant to have the film look 'better' than it could (considering the available master). This means that there is no overzealous sharpening and contrast boosting (the types that many of the early and some recent catalog titles from Universal Studios have) or traces of severe denoising. This being said, the high-definition transfer has retained a low dose of noise that is often mixed with the grain and there are tiny specks that pop up here and there. Some softness is also present during the nighttime sequences. Again, though, this is the best way to present a catalog title for which a 4K high-definition transfer is unrealistic - offer a raw, unmanipulated high-definition transfer from the most recent master and let the film look like film, as it is the case with Rolling Thunder. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Rolling Thunder Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray: English DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0. For the record, Studio Canal have not provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0 track lacks great depth and intensity, but this should not be surprising. There are selected scenes, however, where Barry De Vorzon's score comes alive, though admittedly it never really enhances the atmosphere in the film; it has a secondary role. The dialog is crisp, clear, stable, and easy to follow. Also, there is no heavy hiss, pops, or audio dropouts to report in this review.
