Lethal Weapon Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Don't let "VC-1" and Lethal Weapon's opening stock shot send you into fits. The film that launched Donner's fabled buddy cop franchise features the same well-received, meticulously remastered 1080p/VC-1 transfer as its 2010 UK counterpart; not the poorly encoded presentation fans in the U.S. have been avoiding since 2006. The new encode doesn't turn water into wine -- grain is quite heavy at times, the film's increasingly oppressive shadows tend to leech detail, and filmic softness is in play -- but only because Warner's latest transfer is so faithful to Donner's intentions and Stephen Goldblatt's original photography. For all intents and purposes, this is Lethal Weapon as it was meant to be seen. Colors are strong and properly saturated, primaries pack heat, and black levels are deep and satisfying. Detail, meanwhile, is substantially improved, without any sign of the overzealous processing and manipulation that all but waged war on the quality of the 2006 Blu-ray presentation. Textures are refined and rewarding (not razor-sharp, mind you, but sufficiently exacting), edges are nicely defined and free of unsightly halos, and contrast rarely falls out of step. More importantly, artifacting, banding and all the other issues that plagued the 2006 encode aren't a factor this time around, and there's very little to complain about. Lethal Weapon still doesn't look like it was shot yesterday, but this is much, much closer to the film that took audiences by storm twenty-five years ago.

Lethal Weapon 2 receives a similar overhaul and the results are just as impressive. Gone are the rampant issues that afflicted the film's first Blu-ray release, gone are the compression artifacts, filtering mishaps and unmistakable eyesores that plagued the 2006 encode. The sequel's newly remastered 1080p/VC-1 transfer delivers, even when the sun sets and Goldblatt's thick shadows rush in to fill the void. Once again, grain spikes at times and softness has a role in the action that erupts, but it's all in keeping with the original photography. While contrast is a touch hotter now and again (it isn't Christmas anymore, Charlie Brown), color and clarity are largely unaffected, skintones are quite lifelike (even on a sweltering LA afternoon), and black levels are rich and absorbing. Fine detail doesn't disappoint either. Closeups are revealing, faces and fabrics aren't slick or smeary, edges are clean and sharply defined, and grain is, for the most part, pleasant and unobtrusive. Yes, soft shots lurk around every corner, as do scenes that are a little worse for the wear, but I'm going to assume this isn't your first time watching an '80s actioner in high definition. Compression anomalies and other significant problems are nowhere to be found, and the presentation almost makes up for the abomination that's been sitting on my shelf for the past six years. Don't feel ashamed to pump that fist, share that high five, mutter Murtaugh's favorite line and reacquaint yourself with Lethal Weapon 2.

If you're impressed by Lethal Weapon 2's spiffy new transfer, just wait till you get a load of Lethal Weapon 3. While most every difference between the two can be chalked up to differences between the films' original sources and Donner's intentions -- not Warner's remastering or encoding efforts -- it's tough to deny that Donner's third Weapon represents another leap forward. Colors are natural, primaries boast indirect kick, skintones are pleasant and convincing, shadow delineation is revealing, and black levels are deep and discerning. Detail brushes perfection too, with well-resolved fine textures, crisp edges and a lineup of striking closeups. Grain is present throughout but almost imperceivable; faint but filmic, it isn't unruly or inconsistent, it's just an organic part of the image. Yes, yes, softness still finds its way into the presentation. That much should be expected by now. What doesn't find its way into the image is macroblocking. Or banding. Or ringing. Or really anything that might give a good videophile pause. Lethal Weapon 3's presentation is about as close to flawless as it gets in the realm of early '90s action, and you'd be hard pressed to find a buddy cop flick from the era that looks any better in high definition.

Fast forward six years to Lethal Weapon 4 and behold the best 1080p/VC-1 presentation in the bunch. Again, the increase in quality is inherited, nothing more, and again, that's only said to put the earlier Lethal Weapon transfers into perspective, not to belittle the third and fourth films' encodes in any way. Like Lethal Weapon 3, the fourth and final entry in the franchise looks fantastic. The movie itself may suffer from diminishing sequel returns, but the image is strong and steady. In fact, only a handful of scenes could be called anything less than perfect -- a shoddily shot conversation between Uncle Benny and Wah Sing Ku is particularly rough, and Riggs and Murtaugh's run-in with a Chinese cargo ship is disrupted a bit by slightly noisy skies -- and none of them amount to a distraction. Andrzej Bartkowiak's palette is warm and inviting, saturation and contrast are dialed in terrificly, black levels don't disappoint, and detail is dead on, fine textures, edges and all. And the encode? Pristine and proficient, with nary an artifact, halo or technical misstep worth noting. The film barely shows its age actually, and its transfer is without any serious fault or flaw. Fans may not flock to the fourth film as readily as the others, but they'll certainly embrace its top-notch Blu-ray presentation.

Lethal Weapon Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

While the 2006 Blu-ray releases of Lethal Weapon and Lethal Weapon 2 underwhelmed with problematic Dolby Digital mixes, Warner's latest editions of Donner's first two films feature a pair of lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks. Was it worth the wait and heartache? In a word, absolutely. Neither actioner defies its age, but as '80s actioners go, both Weapons sound great. Dialogue is clean and clear, without any prevailing prioritization issues or muddled voices. Shootouts, explosions and heavy downpours overpower a few lines, sure, but aside from some pronounced ADR, fans won't have to contend with any major problems. Likewise, gunfire sounds as if it's been ripped straight out of the '80s, canned ricochets and all, but it's all part of the charm. The LFE channel throws its weight around, adding welcome oomph, padded as it sometimes sounds, to every action beat, chase sequence, thunder clap, fist fight and falling shipping crate. A few explosions and car crashes send some solid shockwaves across the floor too, which only makes each track that much more effective. The rear speakers aren't aggressive by any means, but they actively support each film's score (saxophone runs and all), crowded street corners, chatty police stations, bustling embassies and dangerous shipyards. That said, neither experience breaks free of the films' distinctly '80s sound design. No one will mistake either film's lossless track for that of a modern action extravaganza, but genre junkies and audiophiles will be more than pleased with the upgrade.

Lethal Weapon 3 and Lethal Weapon 4 offer excellent lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround tracks of their own, and each successive sequel sounds better than its predecessor. Dialogue is crystal clear and neatly prioritized, without any glaring discrepancies of note, and gunshots, roaring engines, squealing tires and punches sound more convincing. ADR rears its head yet again -- name an '80s or '90s action flick that isn't rife with it -- but rarely undermines the integrity of the mixes. LFE output is fuller, weightier and more natural, and explosions, shotgun blasts and other hearty LFE-bolstered effects are more natural and nuanced. The rear speakers are more active too, with a number of more precise directional effects and more stable pans at their disposal. Not only are the third and fourth films' soundfields more immersive, the resulting sonic experiences are more involving and less front-heavy. It may be stating the obvious, but Lethal Weapon 3 and (especially) Lethal Weapon 4's sound designs aren't as dated, making their lossless audio mixes more satisfying, even if the bump in satisfaction is superficial. In other words, while the raw technical quality of the four tracks is uniform, it's the last two films (and, really, Lethal Weapon 4) that steal the show.
