The Cannonball Run

 (1981)

The Cannonball Run Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.78.1 aspect ratio) presentation on "The Cannonball Run" keeps a brightly lit and colorful motion picture comfortably alert. Some mild DNR appears to have applied, giving off a slight waxy appearance to the cast, especially Reynolds, who looks unnaturally smooth at times. Frame details remain in good standing despite softness, with automobiles revealing their wear and tear in full, while costuming shows a passable amount of texture -- see-through and tight outfits offer their intended visual appeal. Colors are the big sell here, popping through different race environments with minimal fade. The spandex outfits on Barbeau and Buckman are particularly vivid (reds and purples leap off the screen), while various paint jobs on the cars create appealing individuality. Skintones look a little too pink at times, but stay fresh. Shadow detail is comfortable, permitting an acceptable look at evening encounters and fabric textures. Print damage is detected, with scratches and blotches popping up from time to time.


The Cannonball Run Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA sound mix works the limited scope of a 1981 feature film comfortably, but never dynamically. It's a louder track concerned with broad comedy and roaring engines, creating a controlled chaos that's never shrill or otherwise unpleasant. Dialogue exchanges are kept primarily frontal, doing a fine job clarifying cartoon accents and overlapping dialogue. Voices sound full and direct, with nothing stepped on as the action heats up. There's limited dimension for the group sequences, but nothing bold. Automobile adventures carry a rowdier edge, but very limited low-end activity to articulate crashes and explosions. Directional activity isn't present, with the car wars handed a clotted kick. Scoring and soundtrack cuts are less robust, but they fit into the flow of the feature adequately. It's more of a blunt listening event than anything truly dimensional, yet the crude needs of the movie are met on this disc.
