The Presidio Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Paramount's first DVD of The Presidio in 1999 recycled an undistinguished laserdisc transfer into an even less distinguished, non-anamorphic DVD. In 2009, the company released a second DVD that is listed as anamorphic, but I have not seen it. In any case, this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, released by Warner as part of its licensing arrangement with Paramount, sports a recent transfer of excellent quality. Director Hyams also served as cinematographer, but he had not yet embraced the stygian darkness that would characterize such later work as The Relic. Many of The Presidio's night scenes have a sheen and glow to them that give the film an old-fashioned Hollywood polish.

Warner/Paramount's Blu-ray image has been taken from pristine source material and features excellent detail, superior blacks, proper contrast levels and a finely differentiated color palette that gets the right shade of green for the Army uniforms but also picks up all the different shades that decorate Chinatown, as Austin pursues a fleeing suspect through and across it, and captures the bright red of Donna's sport car. The film's grain texture is fine but visible if you're looking for it, and there is no evidence of artificial sharpening or other untoward digital manipulation. With no extras and limited soundtrack options, the 97-minute feature compresses onto a BD-25 with an average bitrate of 23.95 Mbps, which is enough to handle the various chase and fight sequences without motion artifacts or compression-related anomalies.


The Presidio Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

According to IMDb, The Presidio received a 70-mm release with a 6-track sound mix, although the standard mix was Dolby Stereo Surround. Whatever source was used to create it, a 5.1 mix has appeared on all home video versions since Paramount's 1999 DVD, and that mix is presented here as lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1. Like most surround tracks from this era, the mix is generally front-oriented with the rear speakers used to create a general sense of ambiance, the effect of which is most pronounced in major action sequences like the opening auto pursuit and the elaborate shootout that occurs near the film's end. The track's dynamic range is quite good, so that sounds like gunfire and explosions register with force (though no one would use them to show off their new speakers or subwoofer). The dialogue is clear—a few added lines of dialogue explain why Connery's American colonel speaks with the accent of Scotland—and the score by Bruce Broughton (Silverado) is distinctive and memorable.
