Conan the Destroyer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Conan the Destroyer's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is about as close to a revelation as Cimmerian zealots could hope for. The film doesn't look as if it were shot yesterday -- softness descends like a diffuse fog on several scenes, the sorcerer's ice castle and the heroes' reward ceremony chief among them, and black levels aren't always as rich as they are at their best -- but for a twenty-seven-year old, third-tier '80s fantasy flick, it doesn't get much better than this. Colors are bight and vibrant, skintones are warm and nicely saturated, and contrast, despite some inherent inconsistencies tied to Jack Cardiff's original photography, is quite striking. Detail steals the show, though. Fine textures are notably resolved, object definition is sharp and satisfying, grain is intact and unobtrusive, and the presentation doesn't exhibit the intermittent digital manipulation, moderate edge enhancement or obvious ringing that brought Conan the Barbarian's transfer down a full notch. (Faint halos and extremely minimal DNR are evident, but are rarely a distraction.) Closeups are impressive on the whole, as are the vast majority of mid-range and establishing shots. Again, most every shortcoming traces back to the source, not Universal's efforts (or lack thereof). Moreover, significant artifacting, banding, crush and other digital anomalies are nowhere to be found, and scratches, nicks and other print issues are kept to a bare minimum. (Don't panic when the film begins; the prevailing print damage that accompanies the opening titles quickly disappears once the movie gets underway.) I imagine most fans will be ecstatic, especially those who were already more smitten with Universal's Conan the Barbarian transfer than I was.


Conan the Destroyer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Conan the Destroyer may look better than its Blu-Barbarian brother, but its DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't as remarkable. It's serviceable, involving even. It just lacks the sort of fullness and fidelity that might leave a more lasting impression. Dialogue is intelligible and reasonably well-prioritized, but a number of lines are thin and feeble, while others are bulky and burdensome. LFE output is strong and able-bodied, yet lacks the discernment, polish and authority of the best Universal catalog remixes. And the rear speakers, though certainly active, don't unleash the most convincing ambience or directional effects. All that being said, the track isn't a disappointment. If anything, it simply isn't as reliable (or memorable) as it could be. Basil Poledouris' score is every bit as brash and bold as its Barbarian counterpart, clashing swords and crackling magic rarely falter (even though they have the distinct tone of '80s fantasy effects) and dynamics are quite good (albeit less than ideal). Ultimately, "hit or miss" is an accurate description of the mix. Thankfully, the hits outweigh the misses.
