King of New York

 (1990)

King of New York Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In New York, crime gets done Frank's way - or it doesn't get done at all. Recently freed from prison, Frank White hooks up with his old crew to challenge his fellow drug lords. Each bloody battle aims at a piece of the high-priced action where being at the top of the chain can mean the difference between life and death. Unable to keep him behind bars, the cops declare war on him. Frank's answer-put a contract out on the cops.

For more about King of New York and the King of New York Blu-ray release, see King of New York Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Director: Abel Ferrara
Writer: Nicholas St. John
Starring: Christopher Walken, David Caruso, Laurence Fishburne, Victor Argo, Wesley Snipes, Giancarlo Esposito

King of New York Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Abel Ferrara's King of New York arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Arrow Video.

The high-definition transfer is solid. Detail and clarity are very good throughout the entire film, while color reproduction is the best I've seen to date. This is not to imply that there is no room for improvement, but the basics here are very much intact. The overwhelming majority of the close-ups convey strong depth and fluidity (see screencaptures #4 and 9), while the nighttime sequences never look blocky (on previous DVD releases of the film, as well as on the Lionsgate Films Blu-ray release, the nighttime sequences are indeed problematic). Where there is an abundance of light, sharpness levels are also pleasing. The best news, however, is that there are absolutely no traces of problematic post-production lab tinkering. Naturally, even though there are a few scenes where light noise slightly overwhelms the grain, there are no serious anomalies that distract. Edge-enhancement also never affects the integrity of the presentation. Unsurprisingly, from start to finish the film boasts a very pleasing, if admittedly not perfect, organic look. Lastly, there are no serious compression issues. Large damage marks, cuts, debris, or warps are also nowhere to be seen. To sum it all up, this is a competent presentation of King of New York which ought to be considered the best currently on the market. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


King of New York Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Arrow Video have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The English LPCM 2.0 track serves the film far better than the English DTS-HD Master 5.1 track. This did not surprise me much because I've owned multiple DVD releases of King of New York and they have all had lossy 5.1 tracks that have struggled with the film's sound design (even on the old 2DVD set by Artisan, which replaced the first non-anamorphic release, the two-channel lossy track was preferable). The current Lionsgate Films Blu-ray release is not an exception.

On the English LPCM 2.0 track the sound is compact, with more evenly distributed nuanced dynamics. There are no sudden spikes or drops, while the dialog never feels isolated. On the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track dynamic levels tend to fluctuate during specific sequences, not by much but enough for the viewer to notice them. Having observed this effect on multiple releases of King of New York, I am convinced that it has to do with the fact that the elaborate 5.1 mixes simply struggle with the original Dolby SR audio (which years ago used Dolby's most advanced noise-reduction system). Naturally, my advice to you is to experiment with the LPCM 2.0 track, and keep in mind that any dynamic fluctuations that you might notice on the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track are essentially inherited.
