The Untouchables Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Paramount gives The Untouchables a nice 1080p 2.35 to 1 transfer using the MPEG4 AVC codec. Using a BD50 format disc, the transfer has plenty of room to stretch its legs. The bitrate starts in the low 30Mbps range and stays there for the majority of the feature. Print damage is minimal, with little to no grain. Colors are rich without oversaturation, flesh tones are accurate, though sometimes it seems they lean a bit to the red side. Shadow details are clear without dissolving into noise: the opening raid scene at night is nearly as crisp and clear as anything in the daytime. In the scene where Ness firsts encounters Malone on the bridge you can clearly see the black belt strap layered atop the navy blue of Malone's uniform against a dark background. The jump to Blu-ray from SD DVD brings out additional details that I've never seen or noticed before: the freckles on the young girl in the opening sequence, smoke wafting from cigars in ashtrays, footprints in the luxurious carpets of the Lexington Hotel. In today's age of CGI and color grading, the natural look of the film is refreshing because you don't have to guess what the intended look was on video.
The transfer appears to have received processing that may be mistaken by some for edge enhancement. Personally I couldn't find any edge halos and other artifacts typically associated with that. A typical symptom of the processing is most noticeable in the opening scene where the text appears to shift a bit. It seems to depend on the type of display, those with LCD type displays will probably see nothing distracting where the additional sharpness may be a bit much on CRTs. Other than that, this is still a solid transfer to high definition disc of a 20 year old film.



The Untouchables Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Untouchables receives a Dolby Digital 5.1 EX (@640kbps) and DTS-ES 6.1 (@1536kbps) remix from the original elements (it had a 70MM 4.1 mix theatrically). The soundfield is above average for a 1987 film, with a very wide dynamic range plus crisp, clear dialogue and sound effects. While the dialogue sounds natural for the majority of the film, some sound effects sound a bit…exaggerated. Footsteps, clothing ruffles, are a bit too clear and don't always integrate with the environment properly. A few canned sounds (like a car screeching to a halt, shotgun blasts) stand out like a sore thumb considering how good other effects (tommy guns in particular) sound. There also isn't much LFE to speak of, even during gun blasts or explosions. The best part of this mix, though, is Ennio Morricone's terrific score. It quite simply has never sounded better. The included French or Spanish tracks also both benefit from the Dolby Digital 5.1 EX remix (each @640kbps). Interestingly the main menu is encoded as 2 channel PCM. It's too bad Paramount waited so long to embrace lossless multichannel audio, this film would more than likely have benefited from it.
