Hard Target Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) presentation doesn't appear to be a recent scan from Universal, but as their catalog releases go, "Hard Target" emerges relatively unscathed. Some filtering is present to lend the image a video-like appearance, but detail isn't smoothed out, still managing to capture location particulars and skin textures, with beads of sweat and subtle body trauma open for inspection. Also fun to watch for are the stuntmen, with their bad wigs easier to spot in HD. Colors run a tad hot, but nothing offensive, holding natural hues with costuming and New Orleans locations, and skintones are adequate. Blacks lose some delineation with dark outfits, but distances are sustained. No overt print damage was detected.


Hard Target Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD sound mix carries expected punch to detail the numerous actions scenes of the movie. Surrounds are utilized quite well, with encouraging panning effects for motorcycle activity and helicopter arrivals, while explosions also feel out circular movement. Dialogue isn't deep but it remains crisp and open for inspection, navigating accents and more hectic encounters. Low-end receives a workout, and while it's more of a shallow rumble, heaviness is felt during firebombs and shootouts. Scoring maintains authority, supporting without steamrolling the rest of the elements, and soundtrack selections are clean. Bayou and citywide atmospherics are explored to satisfaction.
