The Green Berets Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Green Berets features a clean 1080p/VC-1 transfer that, all things considered, looks pretty good. Skintones sometimes falter, burdensome DNR has been applied to the entire film, and the grain that once dotted the Vietnamese skies occasionally resembles a flickering, soupy mess, but many other aspects of the technical presentation are sound. Be it the lush green canopy of a sweaty jungle or the fiery pillar of an explosion, colors are healthy and vibrant. Likewise, blacks remain deep and well-resolved throughout, contrast is strong and stable, and detail is fairly impressive. Several scenes suffer from severe softness and smearing -- the nighttime shots that dominate chapter eleven being the worst of the bunch -- but I suspect most, if not all of these inconsistencies can be attributed to the film's original print. More often than not, edge definition is adequate, background foliage and foreground fabrics are convincing, and delineation is solid, particularly for a forty-year-old catalog title. Yes, faint artifacting, crush and aliasing appear, and yes, ringing is a constant problem, but each issue is kept to a minimum in all but a handful of establishing shots. As it stands, Warner's restoration isn't going to blow away any discerning videophile, but genre hounds armed with reasonable expectations will be mildly pleased.


The Green Berets Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

I have no intention of criticizing Warner's decision to forgo a 5.1 remix in favor of a Dolby TrueHD mono track. After all, the disc's sonics, though pumped through a single channel, are faithful to the film's original sound design. What I will complain about is the resulting experience. Dialogue is generally clear and intelligible, but voices are often either flat or tinny, explosions and gunfire tend to overwhelm the actors' lines, and sound effects come and go as they please (the strangely mute Vietnamese farmers that populate the locations are a particular distraction). Without the assistance of the LFE channel, low-end tones struggle to make their presence known while more aggressive booms and thooms are tragically distorted. Moreover, approaching officers speak at the same volume as distant soldiers, meaning the mix lacks any semblance of aural depth (something top-tier mono tracks still manage to convey). Don't get me wrong, the TrueHD offering is much meatier and more satisfying than its standard Dolby Digital counterparts, but a more thorough overhaul could have improved matters without sacrificing the integrity of the source. Ah well. As mono mixes go, it's a decent one.
