The Driver Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Driver is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. This is yet another really great looking high definition master licensed to Twilight Time by Fox. The film is incessantly dark, with the bulk of the action taking place at night or in dim interiors, and it's my hunch that Hill and cinematographer Philip H. Lathrop intentionally push processed large swaths of this outing, for there is both remarkable shadow detail as well as pretty overwhelming grain at times and the slightly gauzier look that uprating usually engenders. Colors are vivid and very accurate looking and the image is stable and precise. There's one quite odd insert of a skyline where a bizarre effulgent blue glow overtakes the right side of the image (see screenshot 12). I'm frankly not sure if this is another example of the pushed quality of much of this film, but it's an unusual, transitory anomaly in an otherwise well detailed presentation. The elements are in very good condition, with no overt damage to report.


The Driver Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Driver's original mono mix is delivered by a perfectly adequate DTS-HD Master Audio Mono outing. Things get a bit crowded sounding in the big chase set pieces, where a glut of screeching tires, police sirens, and even occasional lines of dialogue tend to overlap each other in a bit of cacophony. The bulk of the film, however, offers clear dialogue and an excellent representation of Michael Small's ultra-cool score.
