The Newton Boys

 (1998)

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

Four Newton brothers are a poor farmer family in the 1920s. The oldest of them, Willis, one day realizes that there's no future in the fields and offers his brothers to become a bank robbers. Soon the family agrees. They become very famous robbers, and five years later execute the greatest train robbery in American history.

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

The Newton Boys Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Newton Boys features an acceptable high definition presentation. Like most Fox catalogues released under the Anchor Bay label, the image proves serviceable if not bland, clearly not a labor of restorative love but a watchable HD picture nonetheless. There's an assortment of light white pops and black speckles over the image. The picture looks a bit artificially sharp, displaying a spiky grain structure throughout. Details are merely adequate. The image fares best with close-ups of period clothing, while wooden boards, natural greens, and skin textures usually come up lacking in complexity. The color palette is unremarkable, but generally effective. There's not much, if any, brilliance -- in fact, one might even call the image slightly dull -- but the palette at least retains a welcome balance and general accuracy. Black levels are usually acceptable, not straying too far either way, while flesh tones, too, are mostly fine if not slightly rosy in some spots. This is no looker, but there's certainly been much, much worse released to Blu-ray.


The Newton Boys Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Newton Boys' Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack parallels the video quality in that it's not particularly bad, not particularly good. It delivers the basics with acceptable quality but never once finds that next gear into audio goodness. Overall, the track delivers a decent stage presence in all categories. Clarity, too, is acceptable, but certainly not approaching the upper end of the better catalogue releases on the format. Music plays with a serviceable presentation, enjoying decently wide front placement and light surround support. Minor atmospherics -- nighttime insects, general city street din -- is presented fairly but not with much sonic flash. Gunshots, even shotgun blasts, lack much in the way of potency. There's a little more pop and energy in explosions, but not a significant amount. Dialogue does come through clearly enough. Fans won't walk away thinking about the track, for better or for worse. It gets listeners through the film, little more and nothing less.
