Mesrine

 (2008)

Mesrine Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Second installment of the two-part film based on the true story of France's infamous public enemy during the 70s, Jacques Mesrine. He lead a life of bank robberies and high-profile kidnappings, escaped from prison twice, and was said to have killed at least 39 people.

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

Starring: Vincent Cassel, Ludivine Sagnier, Mathieu Amalric, Gérard Lanvin, Samuel Le Bihan, Olivier Gourmet
Director: Jean-Francois Richet

Mesrine Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.34:1, encoded with VC-1 and granted a 1080p transfer, Jean-Francois Richet's Mesrine: L'instinct de mort and Mesrine: L'ennemi public n.1 arrive on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Momentum Pictures.

There is only one thing that bothers me about this Blu-ray release - the two films should have been placed on two separate BD50. When Universal-France released them last year, this is precisely what they did. It was the right thing to do.

The two transfers are practically identical to the ones used for the French releases. Both are encoded with VC-1 (as were the French ones) and convey basically the same fluctuations I observed on the French releases (softness, contrast, etc). Generally speaking, clarity and detail are also quite similar. On this disc, however, during a couple of scenes I noticed a bit of mild flickering (it is very noticeable during the army chase in the forest). As far as I could tell, the color-scheme is also identical - greens, yellows, browns, blacks and especially blues are rich and well saturated (for example, the part where Mesrine meets Sofia and invites her to dance with him looks excellent). Additionally, there are portions of the two films that were shot with a hand-held camera, and contrast varies quite a bit there. Heavy edge-enhancement and macroblocking, however, are not an issue of concern. On the other hand, I noticed a bit of digital noise - particularly during the second film - but, again, I don't believe that this is something that would bother most of you. Finally, I did not notice any scratches, marks, dirt, or cuts to report in this review. To sum it all up, have these two films been placed on separate BD50, I have absolutely no doubt that they would have looked marvelous. On the other hand, they still look very good, and I have absolutely no problem recommending them to you. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free player in order to access its content).


Mesrine Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Momentum Pictures have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is excellent. The bass is rich and powerful, the rear channels not overly active but very effective, and the high-frequencies not overdone. The dialog is crisp, clear and easy to follow. Additionally, I did not detect any problematic dropouts, clicks, pops, or cracks to report in this review. Eloi Painchaud (first film) and especially Marco Beltrami and Marcus Trumpp's (second film) music scores sound terrific.
