The Comancheros Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I have to say; I wasn't expecting the film to look this beautiful on Blu-ray. 20th Century Fox has delivered a restored and remastered 1080p/AVC- encoded transfer that truly does justice to William H. Clothier's sun-soaked Cinemascope cinematography. The first thing that struck me is how immaculate the print is. Specks or flecks of any kind are few and far between, and there's no larger print damage whatsoever. Clearly, the studio took the time to give whatever source materials they used a proper clean-up. Thankfully, though, they stopped well short of trying to scrub all the filmic texture out of the image or give it unnecessary digital tweaks. Grain is wholly intact, and excess edge enhancement is nowhere to be found. There's some source-related softness from time to time—as you'd expect—but on the whole, there's a tremendous bump in clarity from the DVD edition of the film. Weather-beaten faces and leather vests, craggy rocks and the bad make-up job on Lee Marvin's scalp—all yield sharper, better-resolved textures. Color is also incredibly vibrant, from the pale blue skies and dusty orange terrain, to punchier hues like Pilar's cherry-red blouse and crimson curtains inside the riverboat. Skin tones are consistently tanned, black levels are deep without sacrificing too much shadow detail, and although there are a few instances where highlights run a little hot, contrast is nicely balanced. Aside from some minor color fluctuations around scene changes and brief flickering in a few scenes there are no real print-related issues worth pointing out, and compression isn't a problem at all. This is certainly the best the film has ever looked, and I think it'd be tough to make any future improvements.


The Comancheros Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fox has included the film's original 4-channel audio in Dolby Surround, but you'll want to stick with the disc's default—a newly-minted DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track—if solely for the added clarity the lossless mix offers. Comparing the two, the DTS-HD track has a dynamic range that's both brighter and deeper, with less of a muddled mid-range. Of course, the film still sounds its age—not a lot of bass response, highs that can be somewhat brash, and effects that sound somewhat limp compared to today's LFE-activating sound design—but I don't think anyone could complain. Gunshots have adequate punch, horse hooves pound the desert floor nicely, and the battle scenes are suitably lively. There's not much action from the rear channels, but the few times they are used for effects—like rain pouring in the surrounds—it sounds natural, and not forced. Elmer Berstein's catchy score sounds wonderful too—I'll admit I woke up whistling it this morning after watching the film last night—and the music occasionally swells to fill all 5.1 channels. Dialogue throughout is clean and easy to understand. The disc also includes a few Dolby Digital mono dubs, along with English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
