The Tailor of Panama

 (2001)

The Tailor of Panama Blu-ray offers decent video and mediocre audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

In this seductive spy thriller based on the best-selling novel by John Le Carre, Academy Award-winner Geoffrey Rush (Quills, Shine) delivers a dazzling performance as Harry Pendel, an ex- con turned tailor to the rich and infamous and married to smart and sexy Louisa (Jamie Lee Curtis - 'Halloween H20', 'True Lies'). Directed by Academy Award -nominee John Boorman ('Hope and Glory', 'Deliverance') and set in steamy Panama, where nothing is what it seems, Andrew Osnard (Pierce Brosnan - 'The World is Not Enough', 'The Thomas Crown Affair'), a suave and ruthless British spy, entices Harry to eavesdropping on the powerful politicians he clothes. But Harry's talent for storytelling compels him to weave an elaborate tale that's not only taken as truth, but sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy everything he treasures most in life.

For more about The Tailor of Panama and the The Tailor of Panama Blu-ray release, see the The Tailor of Panama Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

The Tailor of Panama Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Tailor of Panama suits up on Blu-ray with an inconsistent 1080p, MPEG-2 encoded, 2.35:1-framed transfer. An early release in the life of the Blu-ray format, it's unrealistic to expect the world from this disc, and all things considered it's not a bad effort despite said inconsistencies. The film's first shots inspire absolutely no confidence. Soft, fuzzy, poorly detailed, and terribly flat, the opening scene sets a troublesome tone, but the transfer never looks as bad again and some of the brighter daylight scenes actually fare very well. In these shots, detail is appreciably higher, clarity improves a great deal, colors appear bright and pleasant, and the image gains a much-needed sense of depth. Clothing, some of the more finely-appointed interiors, and close-ups of actors reveal a nice amount of visible detail that allow the image to come alive and deliver adequate -- but not fantastic -- Blu-ray visuals. Still, many scenes are plagued by hit-or-miss blacks, erratic detail, minor softness, and some occasional edge enhancement. Flesh tones can look a bit pasty but never stray too far away from a natural shade, and the transfer retains a subtle layer of grain. Certainly not a handsome transfer but, outside of a few shots, not abysmal either, The Tailor of Panama looks all right for an early Blu-ray release.


The Tailor of Panama Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Listeners may size up The Tailor of Panama on Blu-ray through the included PCM 5.0 uncompressed soundtrack. That's right, there's no ".1" or subwoofer channel to be found here. Though the lack of a subwoofer channel is puzzling, The Tailor of Panama isn't the sort of movie that would have thumped and rattled the listening area, anyway. In fact, this one probably could have gotten away with a two-channel lossless or uncompressed track, and the results would have been virtually interchangeable. The rear channels rarely pump out any sound, and the track in general is delivered with a lifeless tone that seems timid and indistinct. The audio lacks the transparent quality listeners have come to expect of a PCM or lossless mix, and dialogue, sound effects, and music often sound rather puny. The track's best asset, though, is the presentation of the score. It does spread out nicely enough across the front with a generally distinct and pleasant flare, but still lacks compared to even moderately good tracks. Dialogue occasionally sounds muffled and can be lost under sound effects that often feature a fair volume but lackluster clarity. Atmospherics are heard slightly about the front half of the soundstage but do little to immerse the listener in the various locales around Panama. The Tailor of Panama's lossless track does its job well enough but with nary an extra bell or whistle to allow it to stand out as anything but painfully average.
