Gangster Land appears in an aspect ratio of approximately 2.40:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. The movie came with a quality presentation.
Overall sharpness seemed strong. Only a little softness emerged, so the flick was usually accurate and detailed.
No issues with jagged edges or shimmering occurred, and I noticed no edge haloes. Source flaws were absent, as the movie looked consistently clean.
Colors tended toward orange and/or teal, with a bent toward the blue side of the street. Within those parameters, the hues were positive.
Blacks seemed deep and dark, while shadows showed good smoothness and clarity. I felt happy with the transfer.
As for the DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack of Gangster Land, it came with moderate ambition. The soundfield focused on music and ambience, though it opened up on occasion.
For instance, violent scenes became a little more involving, and some street/bar segments enjoyed a good sense of place. None of these dazzled, but they added to the overall impact.
Audio quality was fine. Speech seemed natural and concise, without edginess or other issues.
Music offered good clarity and range, and effects worked well enough, with clean highs and warm lows. The track never became rock-em sock-em, but the mix suited the material.
The disc opens with an ad for Hickok. No trailer for Gangster Land - or any other extras – appear here.
Oddly overwrought and bogged down by one cliché after another, Gangster Land becomes a feeble genre effort. It feels more like a parody than a serious attempt at drama. The Blu-ray boasts largely positive picture and audio but it lacks supplements. Gangster Land winds up as a borderline embarrassing effort.
