The Gauntlet

 (1977)

The Gauntlet Blu-ray offers decent video and mediocre audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

Clint Eastwood plays an alcoholic, dim-witted cop, Ben Shockley, who has to escort an irate prostitute, Gus Mally (Sondra Locke), from Las Vegas to Phoenix so she can testify in a mob trial. Gus immediately warns Ben of the danger that they're in, but he doesn't believe her. He eventually figures out that his superiors want Gus dead and chose him for the job because they thought he'd fail. The two spend most of the film eluding the trigger-happy cops. The banter between Ben and Gus, who initially despise each other, is just as brutal and entertaining as the action set pieces. And when the two finally warm to each other, it's surprisingly effective.

Eastwood and Locke made many films together, but 'The Gauntlet' features what may be their strongest collaboration. Literal-minded critics may malign the film for its over-the-top explosive action, but it's clear that Eastwood was aware of how outrageous and preposterous the action in the film is. As Jan De Bont would later do with another wildly entertaining and implausible film involving a bus, 'Speed', Eastwood here has stripped down the action movie to its bare essence. 'The Gauntlet' is a fun ride.

For more about The Gauntlet and the The Gauntlet Blu-ray release, see the The Gauntlet Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

The Gauntlet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Gauntlet travels onto Blu-ray with a decent 1080p, 2.40:1-framed transfer. Detail is decent across the board. Sandy desert terrain and rock faces, clothing, and facial detail all stand out nicely, each showcasing a fair level of texture and realism. The image remains rather sharp throughout with only a few overly soft shots, with particularly nice looking color reproduction. The disc sees a strong assortment of colors, in backgrounds and clothing in particular, and each is rendered nicely. Grain is minimal, blacks are solid, and flesh tones remain rather steady, only sometimes looking a bit too rosy. All in all, this is a solid if not slightly unspectacular transfer from Warner Brothers.


The Gauntlet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Gauntlet fizzles onto Blu-ray with a disappointingly lackluster Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The film begins with dialogue that plays at a rather low level at reference volume and remains so throughout the film. The track runs the gauntlet straight down the center channel throughout the vast majority of the film, with just a hint of sound effects and music spilling over to the front sides. There is virtually no atmosphere to be heard, and the back channels only rarely feature a minor sound effect. Gunshots ring out with more of a whimper than a bang. Other sound effects -- cars cruising about, helicopters zooming overhead, the pumping of shotguns, and other assorted sonic goodies -- play as rather weak and uninspired. It isn't until the final minutes of the film that the track opens up when a barrage of gunfire pours out primarily from the front three channels. It's still underwhelming, but it's enough to wake up anyone lulled to sleep by what is otherwise a lackadaisical soundtrack.
