But, of course, I am not dismissing any of these video transfers: they are all superior to what we had in the past.
On the Audio front, each title has a strong DTS-HD Master Audio Lossless 5.1 track, which has taken the original mono soundtrack and upgraded it. Some sound effects have been replaced completely, while the rest of the tracks have been remixed in order to give your stereo system a fairly nice workout. The biggest improvement for all three titles is how well Ennio Morricone’s epic musical scores have been re-incorporated into the audio mixes — and, while they may tend to overtake the soundtracks every once in a while, the end-result is an extremely pleasing experience. French and Spanish DD Mono tracks are also available in this set, with subtitles offered in English (SDH), French, and Spanish.
Overall, The Man With No Name Trilogy is most definitely a godsend. Any fan of classic westerns (Euro or otherwise) will want to make this a part of their collection. True, some of the video aspects of the set may be a bit upsetting to the average purist, but this is by and far the best possible way to view Sergio Leone’s timeless collaborations with Clint Eastwood. Highly recommended.
