Coming to America

 (1988)

Coming to America Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Coming to America casts comedian Eddie Murphy as pampered African prince Akeem, who rebels against an arranged marriage and heads to America to find a new bride. Murphy's regal father (James Earl Jones) agrees to allow the prince 40 days to roam the U.S., sending the prince's faithful retainer Semmi (Arsenio Hall) along to make sure nothing untoward happens. To avoid fortune hunters, Prince Akeem conceals his true identity and gets a "Joe job" at a fast-food restaurant.

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

Starring: Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, John Amos, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, Cuba Gooding, Jr.

Coming to America Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Coming to America travels to Blu-ray with a rather nice looking 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. The film's opening title sequence inspires little confidence in the transfer, appearing hazy, clumpy, undefined, and dull as the camera moves over some obvious matte paintings to establish the African setting. Once the film gets going, the image appears nice and stable, with an acceptable level of detail in clothing, faces, objects, and buildings. The transfer truly sparkles in its display of the many adornments worn by Akeem and his family. Colors are bright but not warm or overblown, looking natural and pleasing, if not just the slightest bit faded. Whites can be a bit overblown in a few shots. The film retains a layer of grain that adds to the image a pleasant theatrical quality, and there are minimal print blemishes. Black levels and flesh tones are sufficiently good. The primary hindrance here is the slightly dull appearance of colors and a level of fine detail that, too, is fine but slightly lacking, but otherwise, and even for an older catalogue title, Coming to America looks good on Blu-ray.


Coming to America Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Paramount brings Coming to America to Blu-ray with no lossless soundtrack; only a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is available on this release. Nevertheless, the audio is spacious and pleasing, despite its lossy presentation. The opening tribal chanting piece is balanced and effectively placed across the front three speakers. Musical reproduction is the highlight of the track, be it tribal, orchestral, or popular. It's not all that crisp or well-defined as one might hope for or expect from a superior lossless soundtrack, but it always flows cleanly and pleasingly through the front channels and enjoys some low frequency support when the situation calls for it. Sound effects are nicely presented, but lack oomph and realism; the clanking of sticks during Akeem's training session with Semmi or the blasting of fireworks early in the film lacks the expected acoustic sparkle. Some moments of the track do send a few discrete effects to the back channels, but the majority of the mix is front-heavy and lacking in a truly immersive sound experience. Dialogue is sufficiently delivered. All in all, this track is hardly disappointing, but it lacks the crispness a lossless mix may provide.
