The Horse Soldiers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

I don't think anyone expects much restoration work to be put into MGM Blu-ray catalog releases nowadays—unless we're talking about massively popular tentpole films—so I wasn't surprised to see that The Horse Soldiers' 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer has its share of untouched source-related deficiencies. White specks and small vertical scratches occasionally crop up, brightness and colors sometimes flicker and shift, and the print in general has a slightly grimy look. But here's the big question: Is it an improvement over the DVD? Absolutely. Although the film has never been super-sharp, clarity gets an appreciable boost here, with more visible textures in key areas, like the actors' faces and clothing. Aside from the fluctuations, which most often occur around scene changes, color is also nicely reproduced. Yankee blues are dense, green foliage is suitably lush, skin tones are warm and creamy, and black levels are as deep as they need to be while still preserving relevant shadow detail. One other thing to note: the film has always been very grainy, but MGM fortunately hasn't tried to smooth it away with DNR. I didn't notice any banding, blocking, or excess compression noise, although on this last point, grain is so thick it would be hard to tell if there were more noise than usual. Overall, this seems to be a straight transfer of a moderately used print. The film could certainly look better, but that would probably require a significant time/effort/money investment on the part of an already-strapped studio.


The Horse Soldiers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Horse Soldiers rides onto Blu-ray with a DTS-HD Master Audio version of its mono soundtrack. Your player/receiver may identify this as 2.0, but there's no stereo separation here. And none needed. While I appreciate the efforts studios sometimes make to expand the soundtracks of older films to 5.1 channels—and beyond—I'm happy enough with the original versions in lossless format. I'm sure most purists agree. Although obviously limited dynamically and immersion-wise, this track gets all the essentials right. Dialogue is always clear and easy to understand—even if the recordings aren't as pristine as what you'd hear in a contemporary film—and the effects are as clear and powerful as can be expected. David Buttholph's nostalgic score sounds wonderful as well. Most importantly, there are no fatal hisses, drop-outs, pops, or crackles. The disc also includes a number of dub and subtitle options—see above for details.
