Jacob's Ladder Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Jacob's Ladder climbs onto Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p image in 1.85:1. This was never the sharpest looking film even in its theatrical presentation, and this Blu-ray certainly replicates that softness to a tee. While there is a noticeable upgrade over the SD-DVD, it isn't to the point where anyone other than ardent fans may want to invest in this version. Lyne and DP Jeffrey L. Kimball opt for a deliberately lo-fi, extremely grainy and low contrast look which some who are new to the film may mistake for a less than stellar transfer on this particular Blu-ray. Colors are never extremely well saturated here, and the entire film is dark and fuzzy. All of this said, close-ups reveal some nice detail and several segments, notably the opening Vietnam sequence, while drenched in a hazy yellow color, offer considerably more sharpness than the SD-DVD.


Jacob's Ladder Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Jacob's Ladder's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack is a good deal more impressive on this new Blu-ray incarnation than the image quality is. Immersion is precise and very, very effective from almost the first moment of the film, when we hear a battery of helicopters panning over our heads. Even more ostensibly subtle moments, as in the next sequence (aboard the subway) have great attention to detail. The hiss of compression brakes seeps in from the side channels, and once Jacob is trying to get across the subway tunnel and a train suddenly appears, a really impressive rumble of LFE fills the sub-woofer. This is a film filled with excellent foley effects and they keep the viewer (and listener) deliberately offguard, with a variety of unexpected surround placements often suddenly bursting into the soundfield. Dialogue is extremely clear and crisp, and both the source cues and underscore are well mixed into the overall soundfield. All in all, this is a very impressive showing for a 20 year old soundtrack.
