Demolition Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Director Brambilla and his DP, Alex Thomson, designed a distinctive look for the bulk of Demolition Man (the chief exceptions being the pre-credit sequence in 1996 and the underground sequence in 2032). Brambilla wanted the pseudo-utopian future society into which John Spartan awakes to look "cosmetic" and interiors like the SAPD station to resemble a Neiman Marcus store. Thomson used slow film stock to minimize grain and shot through special filters that softened the image without losing shadow detail. For exterior scenes, smoke was used both to conceal contemporary scenery in portions of the frame and to change the density and texture of the image. (Brambilla refers to the desired look as "liquid lighting".)

As it happens, this look is a good friend to home video. The laserdisc and DVD versions of Demolition Man were among the better-looking examples of each format, in terms of color values, and the DVD was all the more impressive for being an early release. However, the 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray offers major improvements in detail, depth and color differentiation. One is much more aware of the details of Bob Ringwood's futuristic costumes (many of which are mini-jokes unto themselves), or the 20th Century bric-a-brac in Huxley's office and apartment, or just the individual facial expressions in long shots crowded with people at the SAPD or Taco Bell. The improvements are most dramatic in the sequence where Spartan, Huxley and Garcia venture underground, and the color pallette changes from the prevailing blues and greens to earth tones. Here, the improvement in shadow detail is even more notable. When Phoenix and his gang attack, I've always found it difficult on prior versions to follow the logistics of who's doing what, but on the Blu-ray the action is easy to follow, because the image remains finely detailed throughout, even though it doesn't have the hard-edged "Discovery Channel" look that viewers sometimes mistakenly equate with sharpness.

Black levels are excellent, which is essential for the various night, underground and darkened indoor scenes. There has been no DNR or filtering applied, other than what was used in the original photography. The alert viewer may notice that the complexions of most people in the future are exceptionally smooth, but that's part of the make-up design, and it's meant to indicate what happens when one leads a stress-free life full of "joy-joy" feelings and without exposure to all the damaging substances that Dr. Cocteau has forbidden. Look closely at Spartan or Phoenix, and you'll see that their faces still have texture, as befits their status as barbarians of the 20th Century.


Demolition Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

From the moment that Spartan's helicopter flies over the burning Hollywood sign and you hear tracer bullets coming at you from the sides, you know you'll get an action mix that uses the entire surround system. Demolition Man was released in 1993, when discrete 5.1 systems were just becoming established in movie theaters. But those theaters that were equipped for Dolby Digital received a 5.1 mix that first appeared for home video four years later on DVD. Gunfire, explosions, shattering glass, collapsing buldings, the high-tech clang of Phoenix's futuristic rifle and other sounds of mayhem fill the surround field and should generally satisfy one's appetite for cinematic destruction. The subwoofer gets reasonable use, though nothing to compare with, e.g., a Transformers movie. The dialogue, which, unlike in most action films, is important and worthwhile, is clear and intelligible.

Eliot Goldenthal wrote the score, and it's one of his wittiest. Goldenthal clearly got the joke, and he knew when to write something grandiose (like the theme that accompanies Spartan's two narrow escapes from exploding buildings) and when to supply something ridiculous (like the cartoonish tomfoolery heard when Spartan is trying to gain control of a runaway police car). The film's title, of course, comes from a Police song on the 1981 album Ghost in the Machine, and a newly recorded version by Sting is heard over the closing titles. I prefer the original, but that's not the fault of the soundtrack.
