Barb Wire

 (1996)

Barb Wire Blu-ray features mediocre video and solid audio, but overall it's a disappointing Blu-ray release

There's a joint in Steel Harbor. It's called the Hammerhead Bar and Grille. The place is legendary. So is its owner. Her name is Barb Wire. She's razor sharp. She's tough as nails. She won't take shit and she won't take sides. She lives in the not-too-distant future where biology is used to kill, not cure, in a country devastated by Civil War. Every man wants her. No man can have her. She's a woman with high standards in a world of lowest common denominators. She's not about to waste her time with a man unless he has a really big one and knows how to use it--a brain, that is. It's been a long time since Barb's been on anybody's side other than her own. But when she wants to, she can more than match any man. There's nothing she can't handle. You can blast her and beat her, slash her and shoot her, drag her and diss her. But, whatever you do, just don't call her "babe..."

For more about Barb Wire and the Barb Wire Blu-ray release, see Barb Wire Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 1.5 out of 5.

Barb Wire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Barb Wire's sultry 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer is alluring and attractive... if you squint and stare from across the room. Unsightly edge enhancement takes a toll on the presentation (moderate to severe ringing is apparent throughout), unmistakable noise reduction glazes many a scene, and darker sequences suffer with middling delineation and crushed shadows. And it only gets worse as the film hobbles along. Bota's irradiated dystopia palette is rendered with unnaturally hot and sweaty saturation, black levels are subject to crush and poor resolve, and skintones are often muddy or flushed. It's all bolder and bawdier than the colors that adorn the original Dark Horse comicbook, I'll admit. But not in a good way. Meanwhile, detail ranges from passable to decent, DNR-born waxiness abounds, fine textures falter throughout, edge halos persist and object definition is unreliable. Even contrast is a bit inconsistent (albeit not enough to warrant any frothing at the mouth). And the encode itself? Though fairly proficient overall, it still struggles with print blemishes, minor artifacting, soupy noise and other digital nonsense. The Blu-ray edition of Barb Wire may be a high-class hooker compared to its DVD counterpart, but that doesn't mean it boasts a classy high definition presentation.


Barb Wire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is suitably rude-n-rowdy but lacks the precision and polish of a higher caliber lossless mix. Dialogue is clean and clear, gunfire comes complete with a hearty kick kack and Wire's Steel Harbor stomping grounds permeate the entire soundfield. The LFE channel does little to distinguish itself, other than going for the sonic jugular whenever the opportunity presents itself, but any criticism should fall squarely on the film's blunt-force sound design. Likewise, the rear speakers don't exactly draw listeners into the experience, but rather stage a simplistic, superficial assault on the ears. Even then, ambient effects are merely serviceable, directionality is more akin to a shotgun than a sniper rifle, and pans are meatier than they are effective. Dynamics and prioritization are up to snuff though, and anyone who enjoys Barb Wire will more than likely enjoy Universal's brash and reckless lossless track.
