American Psycho

 (2000)

American Psycho Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this still overall recommended Blu-ray release

Patrick Bateman is a Wall Street yuppie, obsessed with success, status, and style, with a stunning fianceé. He is also a psychotic killer who rapes, murders and dismembers both strangers and acquaintances without provocation or purpose. Based on the controversial novel by Bret Easton Ellis, the film offers a sharp satire to the dark side of yuppie culture in the 80s, while setting forth a vision that is both terrifying and chilling.

For more about American Psycho and the American Psycho Blu-ray release, see American Psycho Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Christian Bale, Willem Dafoe, Jared Leto, Reese Witherspoon, Samantha Mathis, Chloë Sevigny

American Psycho Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

American Psycho presents viewers with a moderately good 1080p, 2.35:1 framed transfer. The strength of the transfer is simply in its high definition appearance. The material has that "glance at it and you can tell that it is high def" appearance thanks to improved detail and clarity, strong colors, and its stable, sharp image even at large magnifications. Still, this is a fairly unremarkable high definition video presentation when compared to the film's contemporaries on Blu-ray disc. The open of the movie over the white background exhibits quite a few pops and specks. In fact, their presence remains very heavy over the remainder of the opening credits. These speckles remain throughout the movie, but tone down drastically after the opening credits are through rolling. There is a hint of edge enhancement in a few places when we can see a ghostly outline around the actors. There is also a thin, black line running horizontally immediately above and below the "black bars" through the entire movie. A scene where Bateman watches "Jeopardy" in his office near the beginning of the movie is a good example. Flesh tones appear a bit off, but the detail is good enough that, in close-ups, we can plainly see the make-up worn by the actors. Blacks are solid, but sometimes veer to the gray side of the scale. Colors are generally distinct and exciting, and the movie takes on a happy-go-lucky look and feel that so often feels like an extension of the Bateman character. Locations are sharp, detailed, and eccentric, much like the film's primary character. While American Psycho looks "good" on Blu-ray, it pales next to some of the finest transfer's we've been privileged to experience since the inception of the format.


American Psycho Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Lionsgate presents American Psycho on Blu-ray high definition with no high definition lossless or uncompressed soundtrack option. A Dolby Digital 5.1 EX track and a DTS-HD HR 6.1 track are included here, and this review was undertaken by incorporating the DTS mix. The music over the open sounds fine, but it lacks that vibrancy and clarity associated with the finest of lossless soundtracks. The film shifts from a fine classical number to the interior of a dance club with heavy beats. Music plays an important role in the movie, and we hear such hits as Hip to Be Square by Huey Lewis & the News and If You Don't Know Me By Now by Simply Red. All sound fine, but the track simply lacks a crispness and perfection we've come to expect from the better sounding releases. Dialogue, however, is reproduced excellently. Bateman's encyclopedic-like declarations sound like he's reproducing facts and articles from rote memory, and each syllable is clear and distinct, and the soundtrack reproduces his lines perfectly. Surround presence is virtually nil; everything is focused in the front but with solid effect. The film's famous chainsaw scene is incredibly loud, violent, and frightening, the audio cues emanating from the speakers with harrowing realism and then an abrupt silence. The contrast in sound is startling, and encapsulates the mood of the film on the whole. Several gunshots in chapter 13 come from every direction with a punch and presence that is surprisingly effective given the generally reserved nature of the track, and the subwoofer makes one of its only major appearances in the film. All in all, this is an acceptable but underwhelming presentation. In all honesty, there just isn't much here for the soundtrack to work with, and what we hear is probably about as good as the movie is ever likely to sound. While a lossless track would bring more clarity and definition to the proceedings, there won't be any kind of miraculous new sounds that become unearthed with the higher definition, unless a sound engineer tinkers with the track. Listen with confidence here.
