Fletch Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Presented with the same, troubled 1080p/VC-1 transfer that graced the 2008 HD DVD, Fletch could certainly use a more thorough and extensive restoration. Not only is the image burdened with technical issues like overbearing edge enhancement, faint blocking, and occasionally poor texture definition, it has to contend with a worn-and-torn source afflicted with minor print damage and contrast wavering. Unfortunately, it all seems to conspire to flatten the picture, robbing entire sequences of the depth of field and dimensionality they deserve. Detail is inconsistent as well: establishing shots and close-ups constantly have to deal with softness inherent to the original print and an at-times unsightly application of noise reduction. There are moments when it appears as if the lens has been smeared... still others where pixelation disrupts the integrity of the image. Thankfully, the transfer is significantly more attractive than previous DVD releases of the film. Overall clarity is more revealing, blacks are fairly well-resolved, and skintones are natural. The image is also more reliable than its ever been before: excluding instances of the aforementioned problems, I was generally pleased with the stability and vibrancy of this average presentation.


Fletch Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

To my dismay, Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track doesn't fare much better. The mix offers fans a substantial improvement over its standard DVD counterparts, but struggles with dialogue clarity, effects prioritization, and scene-to-scene normalization. While the film's aging soundtrack receives a comparable boost in quality and rekindled LFE support adds a welcome sense of heft to the proceedings, rear speaker activity is sadly limited to the most obvious action-oriented sequences and the soundfield is flat and uninvolving. Pinched quickly emerges as the operative word to describe the track: voices sometimes sound as if they've been wedged into the center channel, musical lyrics and instrumentation are too loose, and dynamics are thin and squishy. It's easy to forgive a twenty-four year old film for such shortcomings, but it doesn't change the fact that they contribute to a mediocre lossless audio track. Ah well, as I alluded to before, it's probably going to be a long time (if ever) before we see a release of Fletch that looks or sounds better than this decent but unremarkable AV presentation.
