We know all the scenes are a copy of other films , but if they work so well why not put them together and enjoy all the good bits in one , as they have done in silverado . The film is a very good western in it's own right added to which it is a very good transfer also , the picture is crisp and clear but like the quick and the dead you need to turn up the volume a little to get the sound quality to match the picture

  Great transfer, classic 80's fun, Top Cast!

Silverado was and still is one of my favorite westerns,
especially when it has a cast that includes so many big names.
I especially like Kevin Costners character, who is just fun to watch,
while the roles by Kevin Kline, Danny Glover and Scott Glenn add some great dramatic moments, with a great 'camaraderie' shown amongst the four of them. As for the Blu-Ray transfer, the studio has done the right thing in providing the fans of this 80's gem with a carefully mastered print, boasting some strong colours, fine detail in most shots, especially the exterior one's, where some of the landscapes look even more breathtaking than before.
The print is also largely free of any dust/scratches etc.. which make's this 1985 (a personal favorite year for films - BTTF, Commando, Rambo II, Rocky IV, to name a few..) movie a great addition to your HD collection. I cant really give much of a review of the Audio as I watched it other night with headphones :) but there's a nice dynamic range, which complements the excellent score, paying tribute to the great sweeping scores of the classic Ford/Hawkes era of western movies, as well as the mix of subtle sounds mixed with the action sequences. Havent had chance to look at the Kevin Costner documentary yet, which he looks back on the experiences of shooting Silverado etc.. also included is a commentary track by historians, and another documentary.
Overall highly recommended to not only fans of the film, but also one's who enjoy a good western, with a great cast.. plus it's an 80's film, need I say anymore?
