New Jack City Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The cinematographer for New Jack City, Francis Kenny (Heathers), may not be as well known as the four fellow ASC members with whom he founded a commercial company called "5 Eyes", but his abilities are highly regarded. (The four co-founders are John Toll, Owen Roizman, Russell Carpenter and Emmanuel Lubezki.) The lighting demands of New Jack City were varied, ranging from the naturalistic urban landscape where Nino and the Cash Money Brothers ply their trade to the colorful, stylized world of the clubs where they celebrate their success and the luxurious digs that their ill-gotten gains buy them. And let's not forget the surreal drug lab, the drab rehab sessions and the crumbling police precincts.

Kenny gave each environment a distinctive look, and the effect has been faithfully reproduced on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray. Colors on the street tend to be chilly and desaturated, whereas colors in clubs and at home among the CMB are bolder, brighter and stronger (with the notable exception of Gee Money's apartment after his partnership with Nino begins to deteriorate, where the colors are all cold). Clarity and detail are generally excellent, except for scenes that have been deliberately filtered for a softer image, e.g., the police commissioner's office, which is a place of politics, intrigue and fuzzy values. Blacks are solid and strong, which is important both for the scenes set at night and for the numerous dark outfits worn by many of the characters. Contrast remains at the appropriate level to bring out detail without overwhelming it. The film's grain structure is fine and natural-looking, with no indication of inappropriate tampering; nor has there been any artificial sharpening. Warner has used a BD-50, and compression artifacts are not an issue.


New Jack City Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

New Jack City was released to theaters in Dolby Stereo, then later remixed for 5.1 when it was first issued on DVD in 1998. The Blu-ray's DTS-HD MA 5.1 appears to be based on the same remix. It's a conservative 5.1 version, with the rear channels used only for general ambiance and to give the musical selections a more open and spacious sound. The music frequently uses distinct left and right separations, which isn't unusual for hip-hop recordings, and this was no doubt part of the original stereo mix. Voices are clear and almost always intelligible, with Ice-T the occasional exception. There is incidental underscoring by Michel Colombier, but no one ever notices it; the hip-hop, pop and blues songs that dominate the soundtrack overpower everything else.
