The Western saga set in the town of Deadwood lives on as the Emmy-winning series returns with a cinematic final chapter. The town’s iconic characters reunite to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Deadwood is now a camp for transient gold prospectors, as well as being a symbol for modernization, even including telephone poles. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested, and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought on Deadwood and on their lives.
From the manufacturer
In this original movie based on David Milch’s acclaimed, Emmy(R)-winning HBO series, the indelible characters of the show are reunited after a decade to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds reopened as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.
Deadwood: The Movie is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of HBO with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.00:1. The IMDb lists Arri Alexa Minis as having digitally captured the imagery, and I'm assuming things were finished at a 2K DI. This is an often beautifully detailed looking transfer, this despite the fact that there is prevalence of low light shots as well as other shots that utilize backlighting, something that can often create effulgent quasi-halos around foreground objects. The palette often tends to favor browns and beiges, though there are occasional very bright pops of color, as in Hearst's red vest. Some low light, nighttime material can look just a tad noisy at times, and fine detail levels can occasionally falter as well in these moments. A few passing uses of CGI aren't especially believable, but fine detail on practical props and Deadwood itself is often excellent.
From the thundering roar of a locomotive that starts out Deadwood: The Movie, the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track offered here is boisterous, consistently immersive and often very forceful. Sequences that take place in crowded environments like the bar provide regular engagement of the side and rear channels for background "spill" of conversation and ambient environmental effects. Outdoor sequences often bristle with really nice discrete channelization of individual sound effects. Dialogue is presented cleanly and clearly throughout on this enjoyable track.
