Fighting

 (2009)

Fighting Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Small-town boy Shawn MacArthur (Channing Tatum) knows firsthand that every day in New York City is a struggle to survive. So when scam artist Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard) gives him a chance to be something more in the brutal underground world of bare-knuckle street-fighting, Shawn decides that he has something worth fighting for and puts everything on the line to win. Every knockout brings him closer to the life he's always wanted, but also traps him in a dangerous web he can't escape.

For more about Fighting and the Fighting Blu-ray release, see Fighting Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Channing Tatum, Terrence Howard, Brian J. White, Luis Guzmán, Zulay Henao, Michael Rivera
Director: Dito Montiel

Fighting Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I've been particularly impressed with Universal's efforts of late and Fighting is no exception. Boasting a strong and faithful 1080p/VC-1 transfer, the film -- yep, even its shaky-cam fight scenes -- serves up vibrant splashes of color, inky blacks, gorgeous skintones, and striking fine details. Tiny, individual hairs bristle on the back of Tatum's neck and the brim of his nose, every pore and fleck of stubble is clearly visible on Howard's face, and clothing is brimming with crisp stitching and textures. The down-n-dirty fight sequences have to contend with intentionally soft shots, but they're never legitimate distractions (unless you're a frazzled reviewer attempting to take a sharp, in-fight screenshot... then the lightning-fast strikes and tight close-ups can be maddening). Besides, the instances in which clarity takes a hit should be attributed to Montiel's camerawork, not the technical transfer. Nearly every conversation, quiet exchange, and streetside encounter delivers all the high definition goodness a stringent videophile could want, oftentimes moreso than they'll expect.

It helps that the image is proficient and stable. Aside from some errant noise and faint crush that briefly disrupts a few nighttime shots, the presentation doesn't suffer from any significant artifacting, edge enhancement, noise reduction, or aliasing. In fact, a moderate veneer of grain is apparent in every scene, lending Fighting a fairly attractive, filmic appearance. In all, it represents another fine transfer from Universal; one that shouldn't leave fans or newcomers with much, if anything, to complain about.


Fighting Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Blu-ray edition of Fighting features a solid DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track as well. While it often reserves its sonic swagger for the film's fight scenes and percussion-heavy musical score, dialogue (despite some actors' persistent mumbling) is relatively clean and well-prioritized, LFE output is bold and assertive, and rear speaker activity, while a bit inconsistent, is confident and aggressive. More importantly, directionality is notably precise, establishing an enveloping soundfield that actively draws listeners into the crowded backstreets and nightclubs of New York City. I was also pleased with the film's subdued scenes, particularly those that take place in Zulay's apartment and Harvey's building. Interior acoustics are thoroughly convincing, realistic environmental ambience enhances nearly every exterior sequence, and the hum of traffic and the chatter of passersby are always intact.

Unfortunately, I had to man my remote throughout the film, dropping the volume a bit any time a fight would break out, and bumping it back up whenever Montiel would return his focus to his chatty cast. It isn't a major problem, but it is a slight issue night-owls should be aware of before tossing Fighting in after the kiddies have gone to bed. All in all, it's a fierce track that, minor nitpicks aside, will satisfy casual and discerning fans alike.
