  • Video: 71

  • The Scarface Mob Blu-ray features a 1080p transfer in 1.33:1 ratio from Arrow Video, offering deep blacks and good contrast with some age-related imperfections and grain fluctuation, yet maintaining decent detail and evocative noir aesthetics.

  • Audio: 71

  • The Scarface Mob's LPCM 2.0 Mono offers a lively, robust audio with occasional boxiness in effects, complemented by Wilbur Hatch's bombastic score and clear dialogue. Despite age, audio remains clean with brief quality dips.

  • Extra: 71

  • David Cairns and Philip Kemp provide insightful video essays on Ness and Karlson, complemented by HD galleries, archival materials, and a richly detailed insert booklet, all within beautifully packaged media by Arrow.

  • Movie: 61

  • In a nostalgic yet critical review, '50s TV is portrayed as formulaic but evolving, with 'The Scarface Mob' showcasing unexpected cinematic flair and debates on violence and heroism.
