Vanishing Point

 (1971)

Vanishing Point Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Thrills, spills and a handful of pills. It all adds up to one of the most spectacular car chases in motion picture history! Barry Newman stars as Kowalski, the last American hero, who set out to prove that he can drive from Denver to San Francisco in just fifteen hours. Along the way, he meets an old prospector (Dean Jagger), a snake worshipper, a nude woman on a motorcycle, and a blind D.J. (Cleavon Little) who "sees" danger ahead in this super-charged, action-packed adventure!

For more about Vanishing Point and the Vanishing Point Blu-ray release, see Vanishing Point Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Barry Newman, Cleavon Little, Dean Jagger, Victoria Medlin, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, Paul Koslo
Director: Richard C. Sarafian

Vanishing Point Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

20th Century Fox presents Vanishing Point on Blu-ray with a fine 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Unfortunately, the image features some sporadic edge enhancement, noted almost immediately on the sides of the bulldozers seen after the conclusion of the opening credits sequence. Nevertheless, the problem isn't a major distraction in this or any other scene in which it appears. The image looks slightly faded; colors aren't vibrant, but are otherwise solid in appearance. The red of a stop sign, the greens of the weeds and earth tones of the brush on the side of the road are nicely rendered. The Challenger's white coloring isn't overblown. The transfer retains some film grain in addition to some dirt and debris that crop up from time to time, but neither serves as a distraction from a mostly pleasing image. Detail is very good; individual pebbles, weeds, brush, or a straw hat seen in a few scenes appear nicely replicated. Close-up shots of individuals also fare nicely; several shots of Kowalski's hand shifting gears reveals the fine lines and hairs on his hand. Likewise, various shots of his face reveal every bead of sweat across his brow. Black levels are stable and deep, not a true inky black but very good and more than acceptable. Flesh tones, too, are natural in appearance. Despite a few minor blemishes, Vanishing Point looks good on Blu-ray. It is another fine catalogue transfer from Fox.


Vanishing Point Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Vanishing Point speeds onto Blu-ray with another DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack from Fox. Also available is the film's monaural soundtrack. The track definitely shows its age as it offers listeners effects and music with limited range and a slightly harsh edge, but it does feature fine directional effects that place sounds all around the listening area; they move from one speaker to the next with fine precision, following the action on-screen perfectly. The track features plenty of thuds, thumps, and rumbles, but it doesn't rely much on the subwoofer to accentuate the effects. The sounds of the speeding cars and motorcycles won't strain any sound system, but the effects remain exciting and generally pleasing on the ears. Dialogue reproduction occasionally has a muffled, harsh edge that doesn't lend itself well to discernment. It's occasionally lost under music and sound effects and makes some segments difficult to understand, particularly early on in the film. Both the popular music and the hard-hitting score that accompany the film flow nicely from the front, with most of it handled by the center channel. Unfortunately, it can also be a little loud at reference volume. Vanishing Point doesn't hold up well against today's more robust soundtracks, but the lossless presentation of the soundtrack does a noble job of reproducing the action nicely.
