Maniac Cop Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Bill Lustig's Maniac Cop arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Films.

Aside from some random specks and tiny scratches popping up here and there and some scattered extremely small artifacts, the high-definition transfer really is very pleasing. During close-ups detail and clarity are quite impressive (see screencapture #1) while during the nighttime sequences there isn't even a hint of the blockiness that plagues the R1 DVD release of Maniac Cop (see screencapture #4). Color reproduction is also very convincing - the variety of blues, brown, and grays look rich and stable but never boosted. Some crushed blacks occasionally creep in, but I did not find them to be overly distracting while viewing the film (see screencapture #3). The best news is that there are no traces of excessive sharpening. The grain has not been tampered with either, though some extremely light noise is occasionally mixed with it. Unsurprisingly, despite the minor issues mentioned above, the film does have a pleasing and stable organic look. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Maniac Cop Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Arrow Films have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

I have not tested the Synapse Films Blu-ray release to see what the more elaborate DTS-HD Master Audio tracks that are on it add up, but as far as I am concerned the original two-channel loseless audio track serves the film exceptionally well. It boasts a surprisingly strong set of nuanced dynamics that enhance the action scenes as well as the atmospheric music score without creating any balance issues. In other words, you won't have to reach for your remote control to adjust the volume. For the record, there are no sync issues or audio dropouts to report in this review.
