The Magnificent Seven Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

In 2006, MGM earned the ire of western fans and videophiles with their over-processed transfer of Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. The charges were serious: heavy DNR, resulting in smeary, waxy textures. Since then, genre aficionados have been holding their collective breath, waiting to see what the studio would do with other westerns, like Hang 'Em High and The Magnificent Seven. Well, you can stop clenching your fists now and heave a sigh of relief. By and large, MGM's treatment of The Magnificent Seven Collection is, well, magnificent, mostly, proving to be a worthy upgrade from prior DVD iterations. Granted, it doesn't appear that these four films have been given immaculate frame-by-frame restorations—I don't think anyone expects that given MGM's current financial crisis—but to my eyes there's no evidence of unneeded tampering, no overzealous noise reduction, no unwieldy edge enhancement or other post-telecine blunders. And really, I think that's the best that fans could ask for. The quality varies a bit from one film to another—oddly enough, the first and third movies are the most impressive— but each looks naturally filmic, and all are presented in their original aspect ratios.

If you're like me, you're probably most concerned with The Magnificent Seven. Fans will be glad to see that the print used here is relatively clean, with only a few scattered white flecks throughout the duration. Clarity is as strong as could be expected, and though there are definitely some soft shots—a product of the original film elements, not this transfer—most of the time you'll notice a fairly impressive level of fine detail. Horses' coats have a discernable texture, and so does suede, the cloth weft of the village elder's poncho, and the weathered, sun-beaten faces of our heroes. There are some minor color fluctuations, but the film's dusty palette has been reproduced nicely, with rich neutrals, creamy sky blues, and vivid reds. Black levels are perfectly tuned, and strong contrast carves out an image with a palpable dimensional presence. The film's grain structure is intact, and you will see some spikes in analog noisiness during longer establishing shots and lap dissolves between scenes. Compression artifacts and other issues are almost entirely absent, and the only oddity I noticed was some occasional telecine wobble—when the film shakes subtly back and forth as it runs through the telecine machine. This is most apparent near the beginning of the film, but it lets up quickly.

Though all of the sequels—with the exception of the fourth film—share a similar visual aesthetic with the original, there are some variations in quality, clarity, and general cleanliness. Return of the Magnificent Seven has the dirtiest print, with salt and pepper flecks and specks dotting the image throughout. The picture is also slightly softer here, though there are some terrifically sharp close-ups. Guns of the Magnificent Seven stands toe to toe with the first film, picture quality-wise, with an image that's bright, colorful, and resolved. Filmed in 1.85:1, The Magnificent Seven Ride is the odd man out—the others are all in 2.35:1—and it's also the softest, blurriest film of the bunch, with a severe dearth of fine detail. If I had to score each film based on our 5-star system, The Magnificent Seven would net a solid 4/5, Return would garner a 3.5/5, Guns would get a 4/5, and Ride would be stuck with a 2.5/5. Overall, I'm really pleased with the quality of this collection, and western fans who blacklisted MGM after their release of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly should definitely give the studio a second chance.

Screenshots 1-5 are from The Magnificent Seven, 6-10 are from Return of the Seven, 11-15 are from Guns of the Magnificent Seven, and 16-20 are from The Magnificent Seven Ride!

The Magnificent Seven Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While there's quite a bit of variance in the picture quality of the four films, the audio is surprisingly similar. Each film features a solid DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. As with Hang 'Em High, which MGM also released last week, the expansion from mono/stereo stems to a full 5.1 presentation is subtle but effective, and should please even the most ardent audio purists. As you'd expect, the most obvious uses for the rear speakers are for zippy, cross-channel gunfire and composer Elmer Bernstein's now-iconic main theme. The sound effects get slightly better over the course of the four films, sounding fuller and more dynamic as the technology from 1960 to 1972 improved. Gunfire in The Magnificent Seven sounds thin and tinny, but by the time we get to the final film, bullets from pistols careen and ping through the rears, dynamite explodes with potent low-end rumble, and gattling guns spew louder-than-loud streams of hot lead. Other than that though, these four tracks really aren't that different. The constant is Elmer Bernstein's galloping Americana score, which sounds bigger, clearer, and more detailed than ever, sometimes clip-clopping along on slow cowpoke rhythms but most often bursting with a wide-open grandeur befitting of the southwest. There are a few moments of slightly muffled dialogue, but overall, voices are perfectly balanced in the mix. English SDH, Spanish, and French sub-titles are available for all four films in easy to read white lettering. The Magnificent Seven also includes an English Dolby Digital mono track and a Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. For sound, I'm giving the collection a straight 4/5 across the board.
