Three Outlaw Samurai Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Hideo Gosha's Three Outlaw Samurai arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The high-definition transfer is solid. The majority of the outdoor sequences for instance convey wonderful depth and fluidity, with plenty of evenly distributed and mostly well resolved grain (see screencaptures #15 and 16). Occasionally some softness is present and extremely light noise tries to creep in (see screencaptuer #4), but these are limitations inherited from the master, not problematic byproducts of post production corrections. Additionally, contrast levels appear to have been slightly elevated and black levels carefully adjusted. As a result, there are no color and brightness inconsistencies. There are no traces of overzealous sharpening. The high-definition transfer is also free of serious banding and aliasing patterns. Finally, there are no large damage marks, cuts, marks, or warps to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Three Outlaw Samurai Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Japanese LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The loseless track has a limited dynamic amplitude, but this should not be surprising. During the opening credits, for instance, the music has some depth, but the high frequencies lack the density that newer films would have. The action sequences also sound crisp but lack dynamic intensity. Obviously, however, these are inherited limitations, not transfer related anomalies. This being said, the dialog is consistently clean, stable, and very easy to follow. There is no problematic background hiss either.
