Darkman

 (1990)

Darkman Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Burned beyond recognition and altered by an experimental medical procedure, Westlake attempts to rebuild his laboratory and reestablish ties with his former girlfriend Julie. But his most challenging task lies within himelf.

Darkman Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Darkman is as schizophrenic on Blu-ray as Peyton Westlake becomes after his unfortunate "accident." Arriving from Universal with a VC-1 encoded 1080p image in an aspect ratio of 1.85:1, Darkman can be appealingly sharp, with well saturated colors one moment, and then distressingly soft and blanched the next. I have to lay most of this to the source elements, though one has to wonder why such a widely variant quality is so evident here. For instance, the opticals behind the opening title sequence look horrible--dirty, grainy and soft beyond even what one might regularly ascribe to mist and clouds. Contrast that with "Peyton"'s first identity swap, in Pauly's (Nicholas Worth) room, where detail is extremely crisp and colors and contrast are incredibly strong. As befits its title, a lot of this film plays out in shadow and dusk, and for the most part black levels are excellent. The film elements do display occasional scratches, flecks and other blemishes, so if DNR was applied (and it sure does look like it was to me), it didn't completely remove some of these issues.


Darkman Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Unfortunately, Darkman also doesn't fare extremely well from an audio perspective, despite a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. In this case the fault seems to be entirely with the original surround mix, which is anemic at best. This is one of the most front-centric action flicks in recent memory, with not even Danny Elfman's score doing much to fill out the rear channels. While foley effects are usually smartly placed in the soundfield, they're almost always fake sounding, with little of the snap and punch of more recent, bombastic action tracks (like Raimi's own Spiderman franchise, in fact). What's here is perfectly clear, so don't misunderstand. There's just not a lot of ingenuity or immersion to be experienced, which, considering the film's ambitions, is odd.
