5.0 out of 5 stars Bluray at last, and it's a good transfer!, 31 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Brubaker [Blu-ray] [1980] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
I rated this movie (the Bluray version) 5/5 because I think it's one of the best movies of the early 80's and it gives you a feeling of the hellish environment of the Wakefield prison farm (actually Junction City state prison) It begins with a rather bleak and grey tone of the bus transport to the prison, it's raining, it's muddy and one could almost imagine how it must have been felt taking that ride and when arrived be exposed to the brutality of the Trusty System, violence, prison rape and slavery.
Robert Redford is maybe a bit too good looking here, but his performance is outstanding nevertheless and a realistic portrayal of the fictional Henry Brubaker. Yaphet Kotto has always been a favorite actor of mine and doesn't disappoint here either. There are so many good actors in this movie so It's hard to name them all, always fun to see Joe Spinell and Tim McIntire on screen and they also gives you a memorable performance. The trivia says Nicholas Cage has a small uncredited role in this but I haven't been able to see him yet. Morgan Freeman is hilarious as the crazy isolated inmate.

The Bluray release of this was most anticipated, and Fox did a good job here. I noticed a lot of
new details and interesting things because of the sharp transfer. The colors are perfect, from
the damp prison walls inside to the lush green outside.
The DTS-HD Master 5.1 track is fine since I have only watched this movie with mono sound (which is also included by the way) The HD soundtrack isn't overly effective, some ambient sounds but is an improvement over the mono
one.

I highly recommend this, and it's regionfree. English SDH subtitles.
