Darkman

 (1990)

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 presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory (an imprint of Shout! Factory) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. While this appears to be the same master that Universal used for their previous release, since that Blu-ray utilized the VC-1 codec, this is obviously a new encoding, and either due to that or other tweaking there are some slight though noticeable differences between the two versions. Colors are slightly more robust in this new version; I've attempted to provide at least a few similar screenshots between the two versions for a side by side comparison. Unfortunately, the aggressive denoising as well as digital sharpening are still very much in evidence here, giving this a shiny, sleek, but ultimately unorganic appearance. The image is clear and stable, and overall this is at least watchable, especially from a distance, where the lack of grain and occasional haloing aren't quite as noticeable.


Darkman Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shout! has provided two good lossless tracks, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. As with the previous Universal release, the 5.1 track is fairly front heavy, with only Danny Elfman's score and occasional discrete foley effects populating the rear channels. There's some substantial low end on this track, however, courtesy of such scenes as the massive explosion that helps to "create" Darkman. The 2.0 track is surprisingly fulsome sounding, with a nicely articulated midrange. Fidelity is very good on both of these tracks, with very wide dynamic range.
