The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The 160-minute 1080p Blu-ray presentation of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford comes cramped on a single-layer BD-25 disc. The image often looks good at a glance, and some parts of it are truly stunning, thanks in large part to the lush cinematography that graces the entire film. Nevertheless, there are a few problems, some of them excusable. For example, a deliberately weakened image accompanies the narration, the result almost looking like the corners are smothered in cooking oil. Figures are outlined in a blue glow, and details are completely washed out. Most of the movie sports a normal appearance, one that is often accompanied by a lush, golden hue; outdoor shots in particular often feature stunning color reproduction. Even interior shots feature a noticeable golden hue. Still, close-up shots reveal some smoothness that washes away part of the details on faces, but there are times when the disc features a level of detail that borders on the marvelous, including the texture of a snake and a cluster of tall-bladed grass that stands out so clearly that they are liable to be counted with the disc on pause. Some edge enhancement is to be found, though how much of a distraction it will be will likely vary from viewer to viewer. Black levels do manage to hold up nicely. This is not a horrendous transfer by any stretch of the imagination, saved primarily by the gorgeous cinematography and shooting locations. The Blu-ray is adequate, but could have been so much more.


The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford rides onto Blu-ray with a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack, the lack of a lossless option both disheartening yet not surprising considering the film is presented on a BD-25 disc from Warner Brothers. The basics, for example dialogue reproduction, are solid, but the finer details of the soundtrack feel lost. Leaves rustle and wind blows, the sound more a jumble rather than any clear and defined presence. There are plenty of good atmospherics effects, such as the chirping of insects and the singing of birds, that play out well enough through the front speakers, but with little presence in the rear channels. The track does open up when the score streams through the soundstage. It features a good, but not great, presence, with a suitable level of bass and rear-channel accompaniment. As the film moves on, the soundtrack becomes more subtle, primarily dialogue-driven and center-channel heavy but nevertheless retaining a palpable presence across the soundstage. A scene in chapter 18 offers a slight blowing wind that adds a nice atmosphere to the scene, in addition to a few good directional effects that, while not dramatic, add some welcome attention to detail to the presentation. The sound design is very good, and could have enjoyed a nice boost from a lossless mix, but all things considered, the track is fine, just not what it could have been.
