Full Metal Jacket Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The sticker on the front of Warner's latest Full Metal Jacket Blu-ray release is a bit misleading. While the 1080p/VC-1 transfer featured in the 2012 Digibook version has certainly been created using newly remastered film elements, the use of the word "new" is meant to distance this transfer from its poorly received 2006 predecessor. For all intents and purposes, though, this is the same presentation that debuted with the 2007 Deluxe Edition Blu-ray release and subsequently repurposed for the 2011 Stanley Kubrick Limited Edition Collection box set. And that's a very good thing. There was really very little room for improvement, as most every shortcoming the presentation could be accused of having traces back to the source, Kubrick's photography, and the original elements. The softness here is filmic; the somewhat inconsistent grain inherited; the washed out palette intended. The only complaint I continue to lodge is that slight edge halos are present throughout the film, but even those are easy to overlook. It's hard to imagine Full Metal Jacket looking much better, meaning the decision to purchase this release comes down to its DigiBook packaging and bonus documentary.


Full Metal Jacket Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

For whatever reason, Full Metal Jacket defaults to a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 audio mix when the movie begins. Have no fear, though. A quick trip to the menu is all it takes to engage the disc's uncompressed PCM 5.1 surround track (the same track included with the previous 2007 and 2011 releases). Dialogue is clear and intelligible, albeit thin and hollow on the whole, and effects are quite clean and pronounced, even if gunshots and other would-be jarring outbursts don't have the same kick as they would in a modern film. LFE output is sturdy and assertive, and the rear speakers field a fair amount of activity, from rolling tanks to hustling marines, machine gun sprays, passing locals, and crumbling buildings. The entire experience is still deeply rooted in the film's original mono mix, mind you, but it's nice to hear the various elements spread out as much as they are. No, the uncompressed track isn't a revelation. It's simply faithful and unpretentious, staying true to Kubrick's intentions without drifting off course.
