36th Precinct

 (2004)

36th Precinct Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Two rival cops compete not only at work but for the heart of the same woman. Two masked men steal a street sign from the famous address of the police judiciare. Next, in a subterranean drinking club, a crowd of threatening, ugly men indulge in macho bonding as the first outbreak of gunfire. Two cops who loathe each other, cynical Vrinks and doggy loner Klein, are forced to work together, chasing the the same perps.

For more about 36th Precinct and the 36th Precinct Blu-ray release, see 36th Precinct Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Daniel Auteuil, Gérard Depardieu, André Dussollier, Valeria Golino, Solene Biasch, Roschdy Zem

36th Precinct Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Olivier Marchal's 36th Precinct arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Palisades Tartan.

The high-definition transfer Palisades Tartan have used for this Blu-ray release looks almost identical to the one their UK partners used for their local Blu-ray release. Compression, however, appears to be slightly better on the UK release. The U.S. high-definition transfer is also slightly softer, showing signs of delicate filtering (compare screencapture #19 here with screencapture #13 from the UK release). This being said, contrast levels and color reproduction are identical. The mild edge-enhancement from the UK release is also present here (see screencaptures #2 and 6), though, again, it is never a serious issue of concern. Large damage marks, scratches, debris, or stains are nowhere to be seen. Lastly, there are absolutely no serious stability issues whatsoever. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


36th Precinct Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French Dolby Digital 5.1 and English Dolby Digital 2.0. For the record, Palisades Tartan have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

Palisades Tartan have replaced the excellent French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track their UK partners used with a French Dolby Digital 5.1 track and added up a very weak English Dolby Digital 2.0 dub. Needless to say, this is extremely disappointing. Additionally, the main menu indicates that the disc should also contain a French Dolby Digital 2.0 track, but I was never able to access it (I could only choose the French Version of the film, which defaults to the French Dolby Digital 5.1 track, or the English Version of the film, which defaults to the English Dolby Digital 2.0 track).

The French Dolby Digital 5.1 track is underwhelming. I ran a few quick tests with my UK Blu-ray release of 36 quai des orfèvres and the gap in quality between the French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 from the UK release and this French Dolby Digital 5.1 track is quite big. This is not to say that the French Dolby Digital 5.1 track is defective, but the French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track has depth and intensity which the French Dolby Digital 5.1 track simply lacks. The dialog, however, is still crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow.
