Missing in Action 2: The Beginning Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

In typical Golan-Globus fashion, MIA 2 was shot wherever costs were lowest, in this case Mexico, where the production company engaged the services of an experienced Mexican cinematographer, Jorge Stahl Jr., who had been making films since the 1940s and delivered less grainy and higher-contrast image than the darker MIA (shot by Brazilian DP Joăo Fernandes). MGM's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray (distributed by Fox) looks quite good for a low-budget project shot on film from this era. The source material is clean, without noticeable damage or wear-and-tear. The image may lack the sharply defined "pop" of a contemporary production that's been tweaked and sharpened on a digital intermediate, but to my eye that makes for a nice change, and it certainly isn't an image that lacks for detail of the jungle surroundings, the squalid POW camp or the grime and sweat on the prisoners' faces and bodies. The colors are very strong, especially the vivid greens of the foliage, the bright yellows and oranges of the pyrotechnics, and the occasional flashes of bright red, which are almost always associated with the North Vietnamese (for reasons that should be obvious). The blacks are good enough to bring out the knee-high boots of which Colonel Yin is so proud, and the film's grain structure appears to be naturally reproduced.

With no extras except a trailer and just a few mono soundtracks, MGM and Fox have been able to devote almost the whole of the BD-25 to the 96-minute film, resulting in an average bitrate just over 27.00 Mbps. That's a good average for this film, and the compression appears to have been performed carefully with no artifacts.


Missing in Action 2: The Beginning Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original mono track has been encoded in lossless DTS-HD MA. It's well-mixed mono with decent dynamic range for sounds such as gunfire, explosions and the distinctively rhythmic rumble of military helicopters. The track won't rattle your listening room, but it supports the story effectively. The score is by Brian May, who scored the original Mad Max and incorporated several cues that fans of George Miller's groundbreaking action series will recognize, either from the first Max or from its reprise at the beginning of The Road Warrior.
