Product Description

Amazon.ca

Winner of seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay, this critical and box-office hit from 1973 provided a perfect reunion for director George Roy Hill and stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford, who previously delighted audiences with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Set in 1936, the movie's about a pair of Chicago con artists (Newman and Redford) who find themselves in a high-stakes game against the master of all cheating mobsters (Robert Shaw) when they set out to avenge the murder of a mutual friend and partner. Using a bogus bookie joint as a front for their con of all cons, the two feel the heat from the Chicago Mob on one side and encroaching police on the other. But in a plot that contains more twists than a treacherous mountain road, the ultimate scam is pulled off with consummate style and panache. It's an added bonus that Newman and Redford were box-office kings at the top of their game, and while Shaw broods intensely as the Runyonesque villain, The Sting is further blessed by a host of great supporting players including Dana Elcar, Eileen Brennan, Ray Walston, Charles Durning, and Harold Gould. Thanks to the flavorful music score by Marvin Hamlisch, this was also the movie that sparked a nationwide revival of Scott Joplin's ragtime jazz, which is featured prominently on the soundtrack. One of the most entertaining movies of the early 1970s, The Sting is a welcome throwback to Hollywood's golden age of the '30s that hasn't lost any of its popular charm. --Jeff Shannon

VIDEO:

The Sting arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.85:1 encode. I skipped the standard DVD edition of this great movie because the video was pretty bad. Now jumping directly to blu ray and with Universal 100th Anniversary edition, the video is only slightly improved. Focus is not always sharp. There is a soft feeling to the video. Colours are very well done. Earth tones are strong in the opening sequences, and once the story shifts to Chicago, primary colours are used more and standout, as seen in the bright reds and yellows of the arcade to Newman's sparkling blue eyes. Film grain is evident, but looks unnatural in some places. Unlike previous disasters, like the Predtaors (blu ray), Universal’s notorious DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) is not excessive in this transfer. (3/5)

AUDIO:

The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio is wonderful. Based on Scott Joplin's music, Oscar-winner the late Marvin Hamlisch's arrangement fills the surrounds as the opening credits run at the start of the film. The piano rings out with great clarity and the subwoofer augments the metered thump of the drums. This is a very enjoyable soundtrack. (4.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best classical movies April 10 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best classical movies ever. It brings you back to a time when people lived on their wits alone. Where you relied on not only your own ability but that of your friends. You certainly could not get away with this type of thing as easily today. At least not in this manner. I find the characters believable and the story very entertaining.

Ce film de gangster et de petits escrocs est une pure merveille. Il fait partie des films à voir au moins une fois dans sa vie. Distribution extraordinaire, humour, drame, rebondissements, il y a de tout dans ce film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic Feb. 1 2013
By Terry M
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Paul Newman and Robert Redford together for the first time all those years ago is a must see. The twists, the humor and sense that these two actors really work well together and could be friends off screen. A great classic that is almost timeless.
