Kidnapped Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Kino-Lorber has become known for their "as-is" high definition transfers—they typically don't do any intensive digital restoration work on their releases— so the picture quality of their titles is very much dependent on the condition of the prints. In the case of Kidnapped, the source material is in terrific shape. You'll notice a few of the usual quirks—some white specks, some hairs stuck in the camera gate, some light color fluttering—but all of these minor concerns are vastly overshadowed by how damn great the film looks in HD. (If you've seen the Anchor Bay DVD, the difference will be striking and immediate.) Without a trace of digital noise reduction or edge enhancement, the picture has a warm, organically filmic look that just couldn't ever be resolved in standard definition. The level of clarity is the most obvious improvement—fine detail is easily visible in the textures of faces and clothing—but color also gets a boost, with balanced contrast, good saturation, and no major tonal discrepancies between shots or scenes. Sure, Kidnapped could still use a bit of spit and polish, but this is by far the best the film has ever looked on home video.


Kidnapped Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Kino has given the film an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 track that's stable, listenable, and—like the high definition transfer—has no substantive issues. Pops, crackles, and hisses are almost non-existent, and the mix has a consistent level of clarity and presence, with clear dialogue and effects. Of course, there's nothing outright impressive about the track—this is a low-budget Italian thriller from the '70s, after all, complete with noticeable dubbing—but this is probably the best Kidnapped will ever sound. The one glaring downside to this cut of the film, however, is composer Stelvio Cipriani's exceptionally cheesy remade score, which replaces the moodiness of the original with dated synth sounds straight from some cornball 1980s action TV series. Oh well. Let this be a lesson that some things are better left alone.
