F/X Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080/50i transfer, Robert Mandel's F/X arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Australian distributors Umbrella Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer has been sourced from a dated master and more often than not it certainly shows. There are select close-ups that look rather pleasing (see screencaptures #1 and 3), but the indoor and nighttime footage frequently looks very soft and flat (see screencaptures #7 and 10). Color reproduction also does not impress, with color saturation in particular leaving a lot to be desired. The good news is that there is no problematic motion-judder. Also, there have been no attempts to sharpen the high-definition transfer. Finally, the bigger your screen is, the easier it will be for you to see some of the random compression artifacts that pop up throughout the film. On the other hand, there are no large cuts, damage marks, or stains to report in this review. All in all, there is plenty of room for improvement, which is why I think that at some point in the future a better presentation of F/X is likely to appear on the market. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


F/X Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English Dolby Digital 2.0. For the record, Umbrella Entertainment have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossy audio track does not handle particularly well the different action sequences in the film. While clarity is relatively good, depth an fluidity do not impress (see the restaurant sequence in the very beginning of the film). Bill Conti's soundtrack, as well as Imagination's big hit "Just an Illusion" that is heard at the end of the film, also do not get the type of solid dynamic boost lossless audio usually delivers. The good news is that the dialog is stable and there is no problematic background hiss.
