Armed and Dangerous Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

There's a fairly consistent quality to Image Entertainment's catalog releases; they all look natural and clean--with intact grain and little to no print damage--but they don't appear to be restored in any way, besides maybe some light color grading. And for titles like Armed and Dangerous, which no one was exactly pining for, this is really the best case scenario. The film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is as strong as you could expect from an '80s comedy of this ilk. Grain is quite chunky for most of the movie and there's also a good bit of chroma noise in the picture, although this won't be apparent unless you're either watching on a moderately large television or sitting really close to the screen. There's no smeary, detail-erasing noise reduction, and no traces of edge enhancement. While the level of clarity in the image will never wow you, it's certainly an improvement over DVD quality. The picture looks rather soft overall--this is partly attributable to the grainy film stock, which doesn't leave room for extremely fine textures--but close-ups reveal a better-than-standard-definition degree of detail. Color is balanced and suitably dense--never looking oversaturated or particularly wishy washy--and contrast is good. You'd never put this disc in to demo your television, but the transfer looks alright for what it is.


Armed and Dangerous Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Image Entertainment presents Armed and Dangerous with an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo track that's rather underwhelming but certainly gets the job done. I don't expect anyone to take a third-tier comedy from the '80s like this and give its original stereo presentation a full-fledged 5.1 makeover--which entail more time and money than most distributers would be willing to spend--but the film could definitely sound better with some rear channel interaction and some LFE oomph. The film's shoot-outs and car chases and explosions are a bit wimpy as it stands; they sound clear enough, but the dynamic range is flat and there's a distinct lack of bass in the mix. Still, there's nothing particularly bad about this mix. The soundtrack has plenty of goofy '80s flair--think slap-bass and punchy synth lines--and the dialogue is always clean and easy to understand, with no background hiss, crackling, or muffling. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
