The Car Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Elliot Silverstein's The Car arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Arrow Video.

Generally speaking, detail and clarity are quite pleasing. Most of the larger panoramic shots from the desert also convey sufficient depth. Colors are stable, but color saturation occasionally fluctuates. There are also traces of some extremely light sharpening corrections which are more than likely inherited. The overwhelming majority of them are typically present during the daylight sequences, but none of them become distracting (see screencapture #7). Some light compression artifacts also sneak in. There are no traces of problematic degraining corrections. Also, there are no serious stability issues. Large cuts, debris, stains, or warps are also nowhere to be seen. All in all, while while it is obvious that the film could look better in high-definition, the current presentation is indeed quite pleasing. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Car Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track in this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Arrow Video have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

Dynamic intensity is surprisingly good. In the sequences where the car goes after the cops, depth is also excellent. Some of the audio enhancement are perhaps a bit too strong, but in this film they are indeed easy to tolerate. The dialog is always exceptionally crisp, stable, and very easy to follow. Also, there are no problematic audio dropouts, pops, cracks, or distortions to report in this review.
