Drop Zone

 (1994)

Drop Zone Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

Pete Nessip is a Federal Marshall who, teamed with his brother Terry, is escorting criminal computer genius Earl Leedy to a new prison facility. Pete, Terry and Earl are on a jet en route to Earl's new lockup when terrorists attempt a daring hijacking. Terry is killed in an explosion aboard the plane, and suddenly Earl is missing. Pete discovers that a team of sky-diving outlaws, led by former DEA agent gone bad Ty Moncrief, have snatched Earl from his flight and spirited him away for a special raid on Washington D.C. Ty and his men intend to take advantage of an obscure rule in which the normally restricted airspace in Washington D.C. is open to parachute enthusiasts on July 4. Eager to avenge his brother's death and put both Ty and Earl behind bars, Pete recruits sky-diving expert Jessie Crossman to teach him how to infiltrate Ty's team of sky-bound criminals.

Drop Zone Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Drop Zone plummets onto Blu-ray with a middling 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer that's another one of those unfortunate transfers that looks good here and there but contains plenty of flaws that reveal themselves upon closer inspection. The image is generally vibrant, with colors so bright that they sometimes strain the eyes, for instance the bright blue seats on the doomed flight as seen near the beginning of the film. Drop Zone is an incredibly bright film with a wide array of colors, and for the most part, color reproduction is the film's strength. Detail, however, wavers; the image picks up the finer nuances in smaller objects in some scenes, but elsewhere, it looks flat and devoid of more than cursory details and basic shapes. The image looks a bit smoothed out but not completely detrimentally so early on, but the back half of the picture -- particularly its dark scenes -- feature an extraordinary amount of grain. Additionally, plenty of random artifacts and dirt cover the image and the film's darker climax goes inexplicably soft, a harsh contrast to the film's generally sharpened appearance. Fortunately, blacks are generally presentable, while flesh tones remain neutral shades throughout. All in all, Drop Zone doesn't look terrible, but videophiles will find plenty to nitpick about this release.


Drop Zone Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Drop Zone's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack, like the video, proves serviceable but hardly noteworthy. Dialogue comes across as slightly harsh and underdeveloped, unnatural and not blending with the rest of the track. The picture's sound effects are neither poorly realized nor exquisitely presented; everything has a generic, no-frills feel to it, from jet engines soaring off the runway to the rock-themed score. Action is certainly loud, far more aggressive in volume than dialogue-heavy scenes, and more sensitive listeners may find themselves scrambling for the remote on more than one occasion throughout. Discrete surround effects often play as forced and phony, and atmospherics are only partially convincing, coming across as jumbled and lacking in precision. Fortunately, some of the skydiving scenes fare better, the track sending hard gusts of wind through the soundstage and doing a good job of convincing the listener of hurtling through the sky, at least from a purely aural perspective. Gunshots as heard during the climax deliver a nice ricochet sound effect and a full back channel presence, and bass rumbles during several scenes to add a nice, hefty support structure to the track. All told, Drop Zone has its moments but, for the most part, this disc offers a fledgling, passable track that's about as good as the movie deserves.
