The Longest Yard

( 1 )

Overview

Like Steven Spielberg's excellent, oddly forgotten Sugarland Express, The Longest Yard manages to be crowd-pleasing entertainment and a tough, uncompromising movie at the same time. While The Longest Yard has a devoted following and shows up on TV often, this Paramount DVD is still a welcome release. The print has been cleaned up considerably (previous video versions were incredibly faded) and the anamorphic widescreen transfer shows off the visual flair of director Robert Aldrich and his longtime ...

Overview

Like Steven Spielberg's excellent, oddly forgotten Sugarland Express, The Longest Yard manages to be crowd-pleasing entertainment and a tough, uncompromising movie at the same time. While The Longest Yard has a devoted following and shows up on TV often, this Paramount DVD is still a welcome release. The print has been cleaned up considerably (previous video versions were incredibly faded) and the anamorphic widescreen transfer shows off the visual flair of director Robert Aldrich and his longtime cinematographer, Joseph Biroc, instead of hampering it the way that previous versions had. The Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track comes in the original mono and the sound mix is right on the mark. While fans of The Longest Yard will have to wait for a DVD edition that comes with extras, this Paramount release has the movie looking and sounding better than at any time since 1974, when it first hit the screen.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
In keeping with Hollywood's shifting values in the early '70s, the protagonists of this prison comedy are inmates, and not the guards and wardens who oversee them. As in The Last Detail or One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, the film's representatives of mainstream society are evil or banal, while its rebellious heroes are irreverent and vital. And, as in those films, a charismatic leader helps the audience to identify with the counter-culture heroes -- a role ably filled here by Burt Reynolds. An accomplished football player in college, Reynolds scored his first post-Deliverance hit with The Longest Yard, cementing his status as a Hollywood sex symbol. Filmed on location at a prison in Georgia, the picture has the naturalistic look and "experimental" editing common to films of the time. Michael Luciano was nominated for an Oscar primarily for his energetic editing of the climactic football game, which takes up a full half-hour.

    GRIDIRON GREATNESS

    Before getting mucked up in a series of 1980's celluloid trash, Burt Reynolds proved he was a solid dramatic actor with a series of great parts, this one right before re-teaming with Robert Aldrich and co-star Eddie Albert, in HUSTLE. Be you a football fan or not, this is a winner of a film. A great (familiar) cast and witty dialogue that scores on every series.
