The Getaway

 (1972)

The Getaway Blu-ray delivers great video and mediocre audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Master thief Doc McCoy knows his wife has been in bed with the local political boss in order to spring him from jail. What he can't know is the sinister succession of double-crosses that will sour the deal once he's on the outside - and executing the ultimate robbery. Fasten your seat belts and join Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw in a supreme action thriller based on Jim Thompson's novel. Sam Peckinpah directed, filming on locations across Texas and in sequence - from the opening inside Hunstville State Prison to the explosive El Paso border climax. Once The Getaway starts, there's no escaping its breathless intensity.

For more about The Getaway and the The Getaway Blu-ray release, see the The Getaway Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Steve McQueen (I), Ali MacGraw, Ben Johnson, Sally Struthers, Al Lettieri, Slim Pickens

The Getaway Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Released on Blu-ray day-and-date with McQueen's Bullitt, and I found The Getaway's 1080p, VC-1 encoded transfer to be the cleaner, more vibrant, and better detailed of the two. The title shows its age with the occasional smattering of specks and dust on the print, but looks otherwise stunning in the upgrade to HD. Look at the scene when Doc and Carol go to the park—the greens of the foliage are vibrant, skin tones looks warm and healthy, if a little reddish, and black levels are deep enough to give the image some pop but not so crushed as to ink out the fine details on McQueen's dark suit. Sure, there are a handful of little PQ issues—the occasional washed out shots, a few instances of contrast wavering, and an overall image that's a bit soft by today's standards—but The Getaway looks great for 37 year-old catalog title. There are only two shots that stand out as particularly awful—both of trains going by—and they're so grainy and wobbly that I'm convinced they must be either archival footage or film shot by a second-unit that was both pressed for time and running out of light. These are less than one second shots though, and the film as a whole is quite nice in 1080p.


The Getaway Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

While The Getaway looks great, its monaural Dolby Digital 1.0 track sounds unfortunately less than stunning. It's not a bad mono mix—I've heard far, far worse—but the track simply doesn't have the dynamic oomph to back-up the action onscreen. High-end sounds—like the prison factory's repetitive noises—are brash and tinny, and without a .1 LFE channel, bass is rendered thin and inert. Sound effects suffer frequently from a canned and compressed hollowness, particularly screeching tires, and gunshots are never as explosive as they ought to be. Still, dialogue is broadcast cleanly through the center channel, and Quincy Jones' harmonica-led shuffles sound sprightly, even if they could use some added dimensionality and heft.
