The Wild Geese

 (1978)

The Wild Geese Blu-ray offers solid video and mediocre audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A group of aged mercenaries are hired by a British millionaire to rescue an African President being held by a vicious Central African dictator. Even though the mission succeeds, the mercenaries are betrayed by the millionaire who's financing the operation as he cares only about his own business interests, and are forced to fight the dictator's troops in order to survive and escape.

The Wild Geese Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Wild Geese is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Severin Films with an MPEG-2 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. Much like many of the catalog releases we've seen from Olive Films, this transfer does not seem to have undergone any substantial digital tweaking, and so the high definition presentation boasts a natural and filmic appearance. While the elements are in very good shape overall, the bulk of the film looks fairly soft, aside from some close-ups, where things snap into sharp focus and provide abundant fine detail. A couple of night sequences tip precariously close to digital noise territory, but the bulk of this presentation is enjoyably clear and precise.


The Wild Geese Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Considering the MPEG-2 codec used on this transfer, and the fact that there is only a lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track on this Blu-ray, it may well be that Severin is testing the high definition market, not yet willing to embrace newer codecs or lossless audio. What's offered here is certainly acceptable enough, though one has to wonder what lossless audio could have added to the action elements of the film. Joan Armatrading's theme music sounds a little wobbly at times, but the rather odd choice of an Alexander Borodin theme that many are going to associate with "And This is My Beloved" from Kismet (which seems kind of odd for a "buddy" movie) sounds nicely full in its many uses throughout the film. Dialogue is cleanly and clearly presented and dynamic range is relatively wide within its lossy confines.
