Assassins

 (1995)

Assassins Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Robert Rath is the best hitman around, but the code and sense of duty once part of his deadly career are lost in a post-Cold War world of free-lance guns. He wants out. Not so Miguel Bain, a driven killer who knows how to claim the top spot of his shadowy profession: eliminate Rath.

For more about Assassins and the Assassins Blu-ray release, see Assassins Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas, Julianne Moore, Anatoli Davydov, Muse Watson, Steve Kahan

Assassins Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The great Vilmos Zsigmond shot Assassins, and although Zsigmond is best know for his work on anamorphic widescreen features like Close Encounters of the Third Kind, he does equally memorable work with spherical lenses, and Assassins is a good example. Whether lighting the delicate chiaroscuro of Robert Rath's apartment, or the sunny heat of the Caribbean daytime, or the cityscapes of Seattle and Portland in rain and sun, Zsigmond gave Assassins a rich textured look and a frame that's always interesting.

The 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray from Warner provides a finely detailed image with exceptional clarity, solid black levels and the right levels of color saturation to differentiate among the differing environments. Grain is faintly visible but never intrusive, and I saw no indication that it had been reduced by DNR or other filtering. Although I was initially concerned that this 133-minute film had been compressed to fit on a BD-25, I did not spot any compression-related artifacts. It's likely that the saving grace was the relatively large number of scenes involving two-person conversations, including some conducted through computer screens; these are usually a gift to the compressionist


Assassins Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The film's theatrical 5.1 track, presented here in DTS lossless, is elegant but not showy. This may the only film ever made in which large amounts of gunfire provide no opportunity for sound designers to show off, because every shot is silenced. Instead, the sonic style is set in the opening sequence, as Rath and Ketcham walk through a swamp. The sound of distant thunder rumbles through the surrounds, panning left and right, along with the sound of a few birds. The focus remains on the dialogue in front and Mark Mancina's mournful underscore. (Mancina was reportedly called in at the last minute, when Donner rejected the score submitted by Michael Kamen.) The surrounds provide the same kind of service throughout the rest of the film, whether it's the passage of traffic during various chase scenes, or of trains during a key sequence on Seattle mass transit, or pigeons in the plaza outside the Banco Internacional. Bass extension is full but natural. The people may be strange, but the physical phenomena are normal.
