King of New York

 (1990)

King of New York Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this overall recommended 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 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Christopher Walken, David Caruso, Laurence Fishburne, Victor Argo, Wesley Snipes, Giancarlo Esposito
Director: Abel Ferrara

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 Carlotta Films.

The high-definition transfer appears to have been sourced from the same master Arrow Video had access to when they prepared their Blu-ray release of King of New York in the United Kingdom. Unsurprisingly, there aren't any notable differences between the two releases. Excluding some extremely light noise that occasionally sneaks in, the presentation is indeed very pleasing. The overwhelming majority of the close-up boast very good depth, while clarity is excellent even during the nighttime sequences from the second half of the film (also including the footage with the heavy blue neon lights). Colors look natural and remain stable. There are no traces of excessive degraining and sharpening corrections. A few tiny flecks pop up here and there but are never distracting. Compression is also good. All in all, while there is some room for minor improvements, the presentation is indeed enormously satisfying. (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 three standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 6.1, English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Carlotta Films have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature.

Once again, I think that the English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is preferable. It is better balanced and generally the sound is better rounded. As I noted in our review of the UK release, I believe that some of the more obvious dynamic fluctuations on the elaborate 5.1 and 6.1 mixes exist because they simply struggle with the original Dolby SR audio (which years ago used Dolby's most advanced noise-reduction system). With that in mind, I again encourage you to experiment with both, but I personally prefer the two-channel lossless track.
