Black Dynamite Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Black Dynamite takes his fight to The Man in high definition, Sony's 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer a glorious rendition of the film that's faithful to its gritty source. Black Dynamite looks like a product of its era, with contrast and color reproduction that are all over the map, sometimes lending to the picture a yellow tint, and at other times a decidedly green tint, with flesh tones often following suit, ranging from pasty and light to decidedly red and everything in between. Nevertheless, color reproduction is exceptional considering the source, with many shades offering a vibrant, eye-popping appearance. The film is most readily identifiable through its heavy grain field, a result of the 16mm film stock utilized to lend to the picture its period appearance. Additionally, the transfer does suffer through a few warts in the form of white speckles and some intermittent debris on the newly-minted footage, though it only adds to the feel of the picture, intentional or not. In addition to newly-shot material, Black Dynamite incorporates several pieces of stock footage and shots from older films that offer a slightly more rough texturing but nevertheless fit almost seamlessly in with the bulk of the picture. Fine detail is solid across the board considering the wavering contrast and heavy grain field; viewers will note paint streaks on walls, fine stitches in the period clothing, and the rougher textures of various stone and brick surfaces as seen in certain scenes throughout. The transfer does exhibit some overwhelming blacks that dominate the screen and devour detail, though again this seems more in-line with the throwback look and feel of the movie and the film stock used rather than any technical fault of Sony's fantastic and accurate 1080p transfer.


Black Dynamite Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Black Dynamite revs up on Blu-ray with a powerhouse DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The film's extensive use of 70s-style beats are splendidly reproduced with each note, the music and the pulsating low end in particular penetrating the soundstage with a richness and abundance of clarity that's probably about the best this style of music has ever sounded for home consumption. Indeed, the track enjoys a natural flow that allows it to spread out nicely about the soundstage; atmospherics are more focused across the front but nevertheless exceptionally clear and perfectly balanced, with hints of back channel support for a pleasant but not particularly aggressive or head-spinning listen. Extensive, loud surround use is limited to several scenes in support of some of the more ambitious action pieces and gunplay. Speaking of, gunfire is crisp and nicely realized, powerful but not overwhelming, each shot delivering a devastating blow that's nicely balanced with the remainder of the track's attributes. The film's low end -- whether the aforementioned music, gunshots, or some other source -- is consistently strong and unwavering in its delivery of all that's asked of it. Additionally, dialogue reproduction is consistently smooth and trouble-free. Though not the most ambitious or exciting track, Black Dynamite's lossless DTS offering makes for a wonderful companion to the film's visual and thematic tone.
