Kickboxer

 (1989)

Kickboxer Blu-ray features poor video and mediocre audio in this poor Blu-ray release

When U.S. kickboxing champ Eric Sloane is crippled in the ring by the dastardly Tong Po, his younger brother Kurt (Jean-Claude Van Damme) vows revenge. But if he is to defeat Po, Kurt must first learn a martial art known as Muay-Thai, so he seeks out the expertise of fight guru Xian Chow. Thanks to Chow's unconventional training methods, Kurt becomes an expert kickboxer. But is he good enough to defeat Tong Po?

For more about Kickboxer and the Kickboxer Blu-ray release, see Kickboxer Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dennis Alexio, Dennis Chan, Tong Po, Haskell V. Anderson, Rochelle Ashana

Kickboxer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Kickboxer arrives on Blu-ray with a highly disappointing 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. The most prominent feature of the transfer is the plethora of print anomalies that are seen in just about every shot. Black, white, and blue spots; scratches; splotches; dirt; horizontal and vertical lines; it's all here, in abundance, and while not completely distracting, these problems appear as plain as day and aren't attractive in the least. On top of that, the transfer features minor banding, a small amount of blocking in a few background scenes, and a generally drab, faded appearance. Blacks often appear too bright or tend towards a shade of gray, and flesh tones occasionally take on a red tint. Meanwhile, there is virtually no grain to be seen, much of the film taking on a smooth, artificial appearance. On the more positive end of the spectrum, colors sometimes impress in the very best scenes, though they are far and few between. A fair amount of depth accompanies some of the second act during Kurt's outdoor training sequences, and it is primarily in these scenes that detail appears adequate. Whether the beads on the seats inside Taylor's van or any number of outdoor objects -- foliage, dirt, or pavement -- several scenes appear passably good, particularly in the context of the rest of the transfer. Still, the better aspects of the transfer don't outweigh the negatives, and Kickboxer makes for one of the most disappointing transfers yet on Blu-ray.


Kickboxer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Kickboxer comes to Blu-ray with a lackluster DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Like the video presentation, the audio is hit-or-miss, with more misses than hits along the way. The audio presentation in the first act of the film sets a worrisome tone. Sound effects and environmental ambience often sound forced, exaggerated, and too loud in relation to the rest of the film, such instances creating a phony, artificial-sounding environment. As the film moves along, however, the soundtrack features a good bit of improvement, with more natural-sounding effects and atmosphere. Music is the film's strong suit, whether the track that plays as Eric and Kurt arrive in Bangkok, a bass-heavy club scene in chapter six, or the infamous dancing sequence in chapter 13, the beats play with a fair amount of clarity and oomph. Unfortunately, virtually the entire movie contains some lip synching issues that often give it the feel of a dubbed Kung Fu movie. The rear channels chime in occasionally in support of the front or to deliver some of the over-amped atmospherics, but otherwise, Kickboxer features a front-heavy mix that generally disappoints.
