Death Race 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Just as Reine managed to mask many of his film's budgetary constraints, Universal manages to mask many of the prequel's direct-to-video limitations, granting Death Race 2 a fast and furious 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that almost, almost looks as good as its predecessor. Reine's grim grease-monkey palette is bleak, barren and, at-times, monochromatic, but bold spalshes of red, retina-searing explosions and the yellow hull of a shiny new Shelby punch through the otherwise grisly proceedings. Primaries sizzle, skintones are relatively convincing and black levels are fairly well-resolved, at least on the whole. Delineation isn't exactly revealing (particularly when night falls on Terminal Island), muted shadows sully many a shot, noise and crush trail close behind, and the hyper-bright digital-video sheen of Reine's photography pancakes several scenes. Even so, detail is quite impressive. Edges are sharp and serrated (without much ringing to speak of), fine textures are crisp and unflinching, and closeups, both long and midrange, are immaculate. (After watching Machete, Rodriguez's Mariachi trilogy and Death Race 2, I'm now intimately familiar with the recesses of Danny Trejo's craggly mug). The studio's encoding efforts are commendable as well. While a few negligible instances of artifacting and banding appear, outright distractions are rare. All in all, Death Racers willing to overlook the sequel's less-than-stunning production values will declare their high definition dollar well spent.


Death Race 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

"Well, it's certainly loud." So chirped my wife shortly after Universal's sinewy DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track kicked into gear. Before Lucas even finds himself incarcerated on Terminal Island, a botched bank robbery, a few cracked jaws, a chaotic shootout and a citywide car chase rip through every channel. By the time our thankless antihero is behind bars, swooping helicopters, prison riots, gladiator battles, roaring flame throwers, testosterone fueled warehouses, slow-mo explosions, bloodthirsty crowds and, of course, high-octane racers do everything they possibly can to wake the kids and upset the neighbors. But while the lossless track is certainly loud, it lacks balance and finesse. The rear speakers go for the jugular, pumping the soundfield full of directional effects, rending metal and sprawling flames. Strangely enough though, the rear soundscape is occasionally more aggressive than the front, making Death Race 2 one of the first rear-heavy mixes I've encountered. Once a race is underway, the normally ripped and rowdy LFE channel takes a back seat to the ensuing chaos as the environment supersedes the action. Thankfully, it amounts to an oddity rather than a deal breaker. Dialogue is always crisp, clear and neatly prioritized, low-end output flexes enough muscle to intimidate anyone in the vicinity, dynamics pack serious heat, pans are slick and smooth, and the soundfield is altogether encompassing. Much like the film it accompanies, whatever the mix lacks in artistry it makes up for with power and persistence. I have a feeling anyone who has a blast with Death Race 2 will have a blast with Universal's lossless fireworks as well.
