Blow Out

 (1981)

Blow Out Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

In the enthralling Blow Out, brilliantly crafted by Brian De Palma, John Travolta gives one of his greatest performances as Jack, a movie sound-effects man who believes he has accidentally recorded a political assassination. He enlists the help of Sally (Nancy Allen), a possible eyewitness to the crime who may be in danger herself, to uncover the truth. With its jolting stylistic flourishes, intricate plot, profoundly felt characterizations, and gritty evocation of early-1980s Philadelphia, Blow Out is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on the act of moviemaking.

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

Starring: John Travolta, Nancy Allen, John Lithgow, Dennis Franz, Peter Boyden, Curt May

Blow Out Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Blow Out arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French distributors Carlotta Films.

Unlike the Criterion release of Blow Out of Blow Out, which uses a brand new high-definition transfer created on a Scanity Datacine in 2K resolution from the original 35mm camera negative, which was supervised by director Brian De Palma, this release uses a high-definition transfer which appears to have been struck from a dated source. Needless to say, the film does not look as fresh and healthy as it does on the Criterion release.

Clarity and detail range from decent to good. However, during sequences where light is restricted, depth is somewhat problematic (compare screencapture #7 with screencapture #1 from the Criterion release). Contrast levels are also toned down. Color reproduction is satisfactory, with most close-ups looking rather good (see screencapture #5), but the Criterion release clearly boasts healthier, better saturated, and ultimately far more pleasing organic colors. This is very easy to see when one compares daylight panoramic shots (compare screencapture #17 with screencapture #4 from the Criterion release). The best news here is that there are no traces of excessive sharpening corrections. There are no traces of excessive post production degraining corrections, but the age of the master used to produce the high-definition transfer for this release clearly shows. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. There are no large cuts, debris, warps, or stains. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Blow Out Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and French DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0. For the record, Carlotta Films have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

There are no serious technical issues to report with the lossless track. Clarity and dynamic movement are very good, though it appears that depth is ever so slightly on the lossless track from the Criterion (the one specific sequences I compared was the car crash in the beginning of the film). Some extremely light background hiss occasionally sneaks in as well. Still, the lossless track is solid.
