Please describe the audio and video quality of any Blu-Ray you review. Thanks to those who do this.

The video quality was great for an older movie. Not perfect, but great. There was some very fine grain in some of the scenes - more in the dark scenes. But overall, very, very good. I'm not disappointed at all. Aspect ratio looked like 2.4:1.

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 was not very good. It sounded okay, there just wasn't much surround sound, if any at all. It was barely better than a mono soundtrack.

This is one of my favorite John Wayne movies.

Wow! I have a pretty extensive Blu Ray collection and this one is one of the best. Color is sharp and vivid. I grew up going to see John Wayne movies as a child. My father was a huge fan and the rest of my family used to go and see the movies as a family. Look forward to more John Wayne movies in the Blu ray format and hopefully the same quality. Highly recommend.

John Wayne remains the most famous icon of the west that has ever existed when it comes to film. His swagger and speech patterns have been copied by many a mimic and fellow actor and his collection of classic western roles has never been matched. During his final years Wayne continued to make westerns and the most amazing thing was that even at 64 years of age he made some that were highly entertaining such as BIG JAKE.

Wayne stars as Big Jake McCandles, a man who does things his own way and who tamed the country that he lived in. When McCandles grandson is kidnapped by a group of mangy looking cutthroats led by John Fain (Richard Boone), McCandles wife Martha (Maureen O'Hara) sends for him. While still married, the two have separate lives due to the fact they both have head strong ways.

A demand of $1 million is made and Jake is set to take the money in trade for his grandson, a child he's never laid eyes on. But this is a changing west and the sheriff and his men set out to catch them first in the newfangled cars that are the rage. Unfortunately the cars also can be easily dispensed with after being shot which happens in an ambush. Waylaid and with no way to get help, Jake leaves them water and tells them to head back while he continues on with his task.

Accompanying Jake are his old Indiana friend Sam Sharpnose (Bruce Cabot) and two of his sons James (Wayne's real life son Patrick) and Michael (Christopher Mitchum, son of Robert Mitchum). While Michael offers his father the respect he is due, James has a problem with him witnessed when Jake first got off of the train when he arrived home. As the story progresses, James learns to have more respect for his father.

The foursome travel down the dusty trail, following the map left them by the kidnappers.

I have no words to express how delighted I am to have my favorite film in the best possible quality. Big Jake is definetely one of Duke's finest and best films and one of his most popular ( see IMDB) to the point of becoming John Wayne last big hit in the 70's. At the time of it's original release, Big Jake topped the Box Office for 3 weeks and allowed Duke to be N°1 of the top 10 for the 4th and last time in 1971. For true Duke's fans, it's hardly surprising when you consider the crème de la crème worked on this film : William Clothier (Photography), Elmer Bernstein (Music), Harry Julian and Rita M.Fink (Screenplay), Albert Withlock (Visual effects), Cliff Lyons ( Second unit director - stunts), Howard Jensen (Special effects)... for the crew. And for the cast, John Wayne at his best and definetely in one of his best performances ( even better than inTrue Grit ) that could have brought him an Oscar if True Grit had not been so close to Big Jake, the great Richard Boone and Gregg Palmer's machete psycho both as Duke's best foes ever to face him, Maureen O'Hara in the short but powerful part of John Wayne's estranged wife, Bruce Cabot as his indian friend, Harry Carey Jr as an evil dirty old man, Patrick and Ethan Wayne as his son and grandson, Chris Mitchum as another son and a galore of familar faces like John Agar, Hank Worden, Chuck Robertson, Chuck Hayward, Jim Davis, Roy Jensen, Jerry Gatlin, etc... And of course, Dog, John Wayne's dog and best friend, always ready to attack on his master's command.
The blu-ray is a pure treat with a wonderful PQ and cristal clear sound to the point that Big Jake never looked so good.
After the VHS and the dvd, it's like watching a truly brand new movie in full HD. Details you missed before appear clearly in the light of this wonderful blu-ray. A must have for all Duke's fans.

Although most people may not remember this film as well as True Grit, I believe that it stands just as tall as the latter film. A 'Grandfatherly' Wayne finds out that his grandson and namesake has been kidnapped for ransom. Maureen O'Hara plays his long-estranged wife. The chemistry we saw between them in The Quiet Man is still evident! There's the usual assortment of colorful sidekicks and bad guys including a giant with a machete! The graphic violence is more out front than in most of Wayne's movies of this era.Big Jake is well worth revisiting.Dead - not hardly!
