Lock Up

 (1989)

Lock Up Blu-ray delivers great video and mediocre audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

"This is hell and I'm going to give you a guided tour!" With these chilling words, the warden welcomes Frank Leone to Gateway Prison, a nightmare jail where every minute is hard time. The warden wants vengeance for the past; Leone wants only to survive the present. Their explosive battle of wills is the electrifying heart of one of Stallone's most heroic thrillers, Lock Up. Stallone gives a monumental performance as Leone, a convict driven to break his own cherished code by a warden who will stop at nothing to get him.

For more about Lock Up and the Lock Up Blu-ray release, see Lock Up Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Donald Sutherland, John Amos, Tom Sizemore, Frank McRae, Darlanne Fluegel

Lock Up Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 28Mbps), Lock Up appears better than expected for a film of this vintage. Fine object detail isn't the greatest I've witnessed among action films of the late-80's, but once you progress through an exceptionally hazy opening sequence, the rest of the film cleans up nicely. Whether we're witnessing the beads of sweat on Stallone's brow or the five o'clock shadow on Sizemore's chin, subtle textures can be found in most close-ups, providing a sense of depth that's occasionally lost in the medium and long distance footage. Moving along to the coloring of the film, you can expect a muted spectrum that never appears vibrant or impressive, but seems fitting given the dreary cinematography. Along those same lines, black levels offers an adequate baseline for contrast to build upon, though the dark nature of the interior and exterior prison shots periodically expose the film to crush or a loss of shadow detail. Digging deeper into the transfer, I never noticed the presence of edge enhancement or aliasing, grain is surprisingly absent (or kept to a minimum), and there didn't appear to be any other digital anomalies worth pointing out. However, I was slightly concerned about the potential incorporation of DNR during the creation of this transfer (given the lack of grain and questionable clarity in medium distance shots), but given the impressive level of detail found during a large portion of the film, I'm willing to put those thoughts behind me and simply chalk it up to nuances in the cinematography.


Lock Up Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Despite the inclusion of a lossless 5.1 audio option, Lock Up remains a victim of less than ideal source elements that reveal limitations around every corner. Switching back and forth between the 5.1 and 2.0 English options (both lossless), I failed to notice much difference in the spatial separation on each mix. Dialog on the full surround track fell mostly to the center channel speaker, with effects and music dispersed across the two front mains. On the 2.0 option, every element is delivered through the two front mains, so dialog registers at a much higher volume than its surround counterpart, delivering an experience that often seemed better balanced. Unfortunately, given the age of the film and limitations in sound recording more than two decades ago, the two English offerings on the disc feel a bit on the bright side. There's no drop-off or muffling to add to the inherent problems, but despite the lack of any glaring flaws this is still a subpar audio offering on Blu-ray.
