The Rescuers / The Rescuers Down Under Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

First and foremost: while The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under are housed on a single BD-50 disc, neither film's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer is hindered by the shared space. With that out of the way, on to the presentations. The Rescuers looks terrific -- especially by film purist standards -- and embraces its age rather than running away from it. The 1977 film's understated palette and reserved primaries haven't been tampered with (just restored), blacks are dark and inky, the detail in the original animation is intact and more revealing than ever, and the presentation preserves the source image's grain, specks of dust and tiniest imperfections. There are a few too many marks and scratches to place this one in the upper echelon of Disney's animated remasters, and contrast is duller than animation fans may be accustomed, but the biggest complaint that can be leveled against the first film's transfer is that it's too faithful; a criticism true videophiles will dismiss immediately. Without a more invasive and risky overhaul, I can't imagine The Rescuers looking much better than it does here. I wouldn't go so far as to call it ideal, but it comes close enough for me.

The Rescuers Down Under offers a somewhat more striking image, which isn't a surprise considering it has a thirteen-year leg up on its predecessor. Be that as it may, the sequel's dusty Outback colors and at-times vivid hues aren't overbearing in the slightest (and are cast in darkness and shadow most of the time anyway). Its blacks aren't weaker by any means either, and its detail is as rewarding and satisfying as it should be (soft though the film may be on the whole). Grain is light but present, the animators' line art is smooth and well-defined, and the print quirks and obvious age that haunt the original film aren't nearly as much of an issue in the sequel. Some minor but prevailing ringing takes a toll and, compared to the first film, the image is noticeably brighter, but none of it suggests a heavy hand or careless touch. For the most part, faithful's still the word. Moreover, like The Rescuers encode, there isn't any significant artifacting, banding or any other distractions that might sully the proceedings. Down Under may be the lesser film, but its 1080p presentation measures up. Fans will be pleased with both.


The Rescuers / The Rescuers Down Under Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Both The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under feature excellent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks, although for different reasons. The first film's lossless mix stays true to its origins, allowing the adventure to fill the entire soundfield without turning its back on its mono roots. Dialogue is clear and nicely grounded (for a 35-year-old animated catalog title that is), era-specific noise and hiss are kept to an absolute minimum, and the rear speakers grab hold of everything from the music to the swampy soundscape. It's still a largely front-heavy track, but audiophiles shouldn't expect too much more. The Rescuers Down Under offers a more involving experience, thanks in part to being produced some thirteen years after the original. Voices are bright and distinct, eagle cries and mouse squeaks are as piercing and delicate (respectively) as they should be, and the score and songs soar across the soundfield. Directionality is more engaging too, even though, again, that has little to do with the actual quality of the mixes. All things considered, both films sound great; their lossless tracks pairing wonderfully with their video presentations.
