Is this film one of the greatest Westerns ever made? Probably! Is this Blu-ray transfer one of the best there is? Yes it really is!
John Wayne's classic Western looks amazing on Blu-ray, and can be enjoyed again as if you were watching a whole new film. The picture quality is out of this world, the story is as gritty and frightening as it ever was. This tale of what boils-down to be "racism" is one of John Fords greatest films, and a film that every fan of cinema should own in their collection.
John Wayne is probably at his peak in this movie, and for those who say Wayne can't act, watch this and be proved wrong. It has some of the most stirring scenes ever written in film and stills pulls-strong today.
As for the HD qualitys. The picture is an amazing transfer that makes the film look like it was released just this year... It's just that breath-taking. As for the sound, it was decided to leave in the original mono soundtrack, but this still sounds great in HD. There are loads of extras too, which add to the whole experience.
If you don't own it, you're no film-buff!
