Shoot the Sun Down

 (1978)

Shoot the Sun Down Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

In the tradition of Sergio Leone, a stylish meditation on America's history of violence, observing the intersection of a former soldier-turned-bounty-hunter, a British chambermaid desperate to escape indentured servitude, and a vicious mercenary in search of Montezuma's gold.

For more about Shoot the Sun Down and the Shoot the Sun Down Blu-ray release, see Shoot the Sun Down Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Margot Kidder, Christopher Walken, Jorge Cervera, Jr., Geoffrey Lewis (I), A. Martinez
Director: David Leeds

Shoot the Sun Down Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

True to Kino-Lorber custom, Shoot the Sun Down is essentially presented "as-is," with a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation that preserves the flaws of its slightly beat-up 35mm source materials. Black and white specks dot the print, light scratches show up occasionally, and in several scenes you'll notice the shadows of tiny hairs that were stuck along the edges of the camera's film gate. On the plus side, there's been no excessive or unwarranted digital intervention here—no DNR grain-erasing, no harsh edge enhancement, no contrast boosting, etc. The picture looks wholly natural and film-like, and with plenty of room on a 25 GB disc, there are no obvious compression issues. Clarity is highly variable from scene to scene—some look much sharper than others—but I'm sure this is quite a leap from VHS quality regardless. Color is balanced well too, with no oversaturation, crushed shadows, or blown-out whites. The print is quite grubby, but I'm not sure we could've expected any better.


Shoot the Sun Down Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Kino's uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 track is likewise true to source. Though not without a few light crackles, the audio is fairly clean, with no loud pops or hisses. Dialogue is always easy to understand, gunshots pack a more-than-sufficient punch, and the percussion-heavy score from Ed Bogas and Judy Munsen thumps along nicely, accompanied by bright brass arrangements, strummed acoustics, and an electric guitar run through some kind of funky phaser peddle. No issues here. Unfortunately, Kino has not opted to include any subtitle options for those may need them.
