Smokey and the Bandit Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The VC-1 encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) presentation brings the backwoods personality of the picture to life with a nice push of colors, with Bandit's blazing red shirt a particularly bold hue that looks satisfactory on the BD. The outdoorsy feel of the movie is also comfortably preserved in forest greens and yellow road surface markings, with a healthy palette bringing a nice lift to the image. While grain elements haven't been completely scrubbed away, they are on the inconsistent side. Edge enhancement is relatively tame, while the print remains clean, save for a few moments of speckling. Skintones are adequate with decent pinks, while detail is acceptable on faces, capturing age and atmospheric intensity. Locations reveal a good amount of texture, also maintaining clarity of distance, making the viewer feel the pressure of the chase (reading period signage is part of the fun). Shadow detail looks on the thick side with Snowman cab interiors, but "Smokey" remains a bright effort with a fondness for afternoon antics, easing the strain on blacks.


Smokey and the Bandit Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix is tricky, with elements rerecorded years back to bring a mono track into a home theater age. Even with the additional sonic muscularity, the listening experience is fairly subdued, with low-end response restrained for long passages of the chase. Surrounds open up with grander designs of chaos and to accentuate the occasional distance, while engine revving and tire squealing only carries a moderate circular impression. Truck passing also introduces smooth directional movement. Primary attention is placed on dialogue exchanges, which sound clear but rarely full, hitting a few brief moments of distortion possibly carried over from the original sound recording. Atmospherics are detectable but seldom dimensional. What's impressive here are the soundtrack selections, which offer a crisp energy with excellent instrumentation, supporting the visual elements as intended. Scoring is comfortable, never intrusive.
