Uncle Sam

 (1997)

Uncle Sam Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

It's Fourth Of July Weekend, and the recently discovered corpse of Sgt. Sam Harper - killed by 'friendly fire' during the first Gulf War - is returned to his all-American hometown. But when Sam rises from the dead to punish the unpatriotic, only his young nephew and a bitter Korean War veteran can stop his red-blooded rampage. Draft dodgers, tax cheats, crooked politicians and flag-burners beware: Uncle Sam wants you... DEAD!

For more about Uncle Sam and the Uncle Sam Blu-ray release, see Uncle Sam Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: William Smith (I), P.J. Soles, Isaac Hayes, Timothy Bottoms, Bo Hopkins, Robert Forster

Uncle Sam Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Oh, say can you see Uncle Sam in 1080p high definition? You can on Blu-ray, and while Blue Underground's 2.35:1-framed image isn't spectacular, it's a good, stable transfer that should please most fans. The transfer's most prominent feature is an aggressive sharp-around-the-edges look that doesn't really lend to the movie a natural film-like definition. Nevertheless, the image is bathed in a moderate level of grain, and the high definition treatment has yielded a fair amount of fine object detail across the board, particularly noticeable on both the texture and stitching of military uniforms in close-up shots and in the intricacies of the film's strong Uncle Sam makeup effects. Unfortunately, the opposite holds true, too; viewers will note the rather phony looking scarring on the blind boy's face. Colors are stable, never particularly vibrant but rarely dull, either. A few random speckles and a bit of dirt are evident on occasion, but the image is generally free of such intrusive elements. Black levels are stable and fair, and flesh tones, too, never appear excessively ghastly or overly red. Though not a reference-level transfer, Blue Underground's work on Uncle Sam more often than not impresses within the context of what one could reasonably expect of a low-budget, mid-1990s film.


Uncle Sam Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Uncle Sam stalks Blu-ray with a full-fledged, all-American DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack. More often than not, Blue Underground's 7.1 mixes that accompany decades-old Horror films lack all that much in the way of punch and surround information, but 1997's Uncle Sam manages to squeeze out quite a bit of each. It's certainly not demo-worthy material, but fans should be pleased with the end results. The rear channels spring to life from the film's first seconds as a creepy, mood-setting wind blows around the soundstage and creates a chilling atmosphere for the Kuwaiti desert where Sam's chopper has been unearthed. Additional surround elements are not sparse, but they're not found in abundance, either. The track engages the back speakers to fine effect when necessary and leaves them be when the material can acceptably be handled by the front half of the soundstage. The film's music -- and the opening title's rendition of John Philip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" in particular -- blares into the listening area with a good, positive, and strong posture; it's not the most crystal-clear and seamless of presentations, but fans of the picture's patriotic music should enjoy the added benefit of the lossless encode. Several gunshots and more aggressive cannon fire at a few points in the film feature acceptable power. Dialogue, too, is consistently clear and never lacking in any area, with echoing words over a speaker system at an outdoor Fourth of July festival providing a fairly honest and realistic surround experience. Uncle Sam isn't going to compete for "Blu-ray soundtrack of the year, 2010," but it's just fine for what it is and needs to be.
