Missing in Action Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Missing in Action makes its Blu-ray debut with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that looks about as good as a mid-1980s B-movie action flick can be expected to look. The film was shot on a rather grainy 35mm stock, but Fox/MGM has wisely avoided any de-noising or filtering—no repeat of the Great Predator DNR Disaster of 2011—and the picture is likewise free of artificial edge enhancement. The print itself is in very good shape; you'll spot some mild brightness flickering in a few scenes, but there are no scratches or stains and hardly any white specks. The level of clarity is unavoidably constrained by the gritty film stock and the spherical lenses used, but the sheer act of remastering the film in high definition brings out detail that just wouldn't be visible on DVD. Color is satisfyingly reproduced too, with dense green jungle foliage, fiery explosive blasts, and deep but not oppressive blacks. If Norris' skin tones look a bit ruddy at times, I suspect it's because Norris' skin tones are ruddy. Watching the film, there's definitely an immediate sense of yes, this looks better than I remember, so for hardcore Chuck Norris fans, the Blu-ray is probably worth the cost of the visual upgrade.


Missing in Action Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

This is no top-tier, grade-A action flick, so it should come as no surprise that Missing in Action skips a multi-channel sound mix in favor of good old-fashioned mono. The film's Blu-ray release at least delivers a lossless track, with a DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0 presentation that gets the job done adequately, with no overt hissing, pops, or crackles. Most importantly, dialogue is always high in the mix and easily understood, although voices can occasionally sound a bit too rounded and heavy in the mid-range. The explosions are thin and bass-less, but gunshots have a decently weighty pop. Otherwise, the effects are entirely unremarkable. Audio-wise, the best part of the film is undoubtedly when Braddock makes his way through the Bangkok streets, which are filled with deliciously cheesy 1980s electro music. The film also features a synth-meets-orchestral score by Jay Chattaway, best known for his work on various Star Trek series. The disc includes French, Italian, German, and Catalan dubs, all in DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0.
