Mystery Men Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Enter the Mystery Men: Mr. Furious, The Bowler, The Blue Raja, The Shoveler, The Spleen, The Sphinx, and the Invisible Boy- a group of misfits in possession of superpowers...sort of. Watch the mayhem ensue, as this wacky team goes up against Frankenstein and his mad henchmen.

Mystery Men Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

In the ongoing saga of Universal's catalog titles on Blu-ray, Mystery Men falls somewhere in the middle of the pack. Designed to look as unnatural as possible and photographed by cinematographer Stephen H. Burum (The Untouchables, The Shadow, the first Mission Impossible) with a comic book sheen, this is the rare Blu-ray of which I can confidently say that it should "pop" more than it does. The 1080p, VC-1-encoded image reveals an acceptable level of fine detail in the elaborately designed sets and costumes, and the wide array of colors is well enough represented to distinguish among the many environments of Champion City. But contrast is somewhat understated, and blacks are slightly crushed, which gives a dimness to the image overall. It's almost as if the colorist were afraid that accentuating the image to the proper levels would call too much attention to the natural film grain that remains visible in the background, if you look for it—and, as I have noted elsewhere, Universal's current philosophy seems to be to minimize visible film grain to the extent possible, without stripping away any detail. In this instance, the result isn't a disaster, but the image doesn't reflect the visual exuberance it should have. At least there were no compression errors.


Mystery Men Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in DTS-HD MA 5.1, the soundtrack for Mystery Men is a playful affair, with frequent occurrences of foley effects and voices in the rear channels. The Bowler's self-guided ball, accompanied by an unearthly Cylon-like hum, provides some interesting pans, and the sustained concluding sequence of the assault on Casanova Frankenstein's mansion has enough crashing, explosions, gunfire and psycho-frakulating (you'll know it when you hear it) to keep all parts of a 5.1 sound system active and engaged. Bass extension is sufficient to have impact, though nothing on a par with the best contemporary soundtracks (e.g., the Transformers films). The dialogue is clear enough to hear every goofy exchange, even with Geoffrey Rush's exaggerated (and unidentifiable) accent. The ripely comic score by Stephen Warbeck (Oscar winner for Shakespeare in Love) has just the right touch of overstatement.
