Clear and Present Danger Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at a healthy bitrate of 33Mbps), Clear and Present Danger exhibits a strong visual presentation, despite some minor transfer-related deficiencies. Fine-object detail exceeded my expectations for a film of this age, but I'm afraid the engineers at Paramount went a little overboard with their application of DNR. We all know grain was heavily-utilized in films of the mid 1990's, yet it seems to be non-existent in surface of this transfer. The downside of this "clean-up" work, is a noticeable loss of the finest facial textures. You'll still notice age lines in Harrison Ford's face, but the more intricate blemishes, marks and facial hairs are completely smoothed over. Despite issues with facial textures and fabrics, the rest of the transfer is highly detailed, with clean lines and easily identifiable lettering on signs or computer screens. The coloring of the film also shows a dramatic improvement from the drab spectrum of the DVD, and contrast/black levels create a superior differentiation in shades, affording the picture a three-dimensional depth that would have been impossible on DVD. Sadly, I have one other minor complaint that appears from time to time. I thought the days of edge-enhancement were behind us (this is "high-definition" after all), but you'll notice occasional halos around several bold edges during the film. A great example is at the 40:20 mark, when Jack Ryan's plane descends to the airport. Look at the mountain in the background, and you'll notice a second outline along the edge of the peaks.

In the end, the film still delivers a beautiful presentation that shouldn't bother 95% of viewers. However, if you're watching it projected onto a 100 inch screen, some noticeable flaws will begin to emerge.


Clear and Present Danger Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Paramount did us a huge favor by incorporating a lossless audio track on this Blu-ray release. I don't have the prior DVD version to conduct a comparison, but it's not difficult to assume this is a far superior track in every way. The most profound change is the increase in clarity, since we're no longer forced to deal with extensive compression. Listening to the dialogue or focusing on the sound effects, every subtle nuance in the track is well-defined, without a hint of muffling. Surround use is just as proficient, creating a level of immersion that serves to enhance the overall experience. As most fans know, the highlight action scene takes place in a thin alleyway, where the good guys come under fire by guerillas soldiers with rocket launchers. Flying debris can be heard as it ricochets around the room, bouncing from speaker to speaker in unison with the explosions. Couple those surround effects with screeching tires, the patter of footsteps, and the yells of the men under fire, and you literally feel as if you're right in the middle of the caravan. Unfortunately, watching that scene also revealed one of the film's only deficiencies, in the form of lackluster bass. Explosions seldom occur, but when they do happen, there's a dismal lack of subwoofer use. Aside from that one problem, I was quite pleased with the proficiency of the audio experience.

As a side note, Clear and Present Danger was nominated for the Academy Award in Best Sound Editing and Best Sound.
