No Holds Barred

 (1989)

No Holds Barred Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Rip is a grappling star who is approached by Brell, the new head of the World Television Network. Brell wants Rip to wrestle on his network, but Rip insists on honoring his commitment to another outlet. Brell responds by launching a show called "Battle of the Tough Guys," in which the beefy regulars of a particularly rough drinking establishment fight each other on camera. Zeus soon emerges as the bad guy champion on this new show, and Brell uses Rip's friendship with his assistant Samantha to arrange a bout between Zeus and Rip. Rip is not at all interested until Zeus injures his brother and makes the fight a matter of personal pride.

No Holds Barred Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

No Holds Barred features a serviceable, but ultimately somewhat troubled, high definition presentation. Image Entertainment's Blu-ray never quite finds firm footing as it presents a disappointingly flat and disjointed visual experience. The opening title sequence doesn't inspire much confidence considering the rather pasty, dull, and soft appearance. Though things improve from there forward, they improve only marginally. Detail is revealing but not filmic and polished. The transfer proves capable of showcasing intimate facial textures but never does find that natural cinema-like fašade. In fact, the image often fluctuates between messily grainy and noisy and hopelessly pasty. The image looks quite flat and smoothed over, particularly in its brightest sequences. Oddly, those bright sequences represent the best color presentations. Lively shades of rather loud blues and reds prove fairly rich, if still not a touch subdued and smooth. Colors frequently look a bit pale and weary, matching black levels that occasionally look washed out and devoid of texture. The image suffers from a fairly light but consistent sprinkling of wear and debris. This is a watchable presentation, but certainly not up to snuff with the best 80s-era catalogue releases.


No Holds Barred Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

No Holds Barred arrives on Blu-ray with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Much like the accompanying video presentation, Image Entertainment's soundtrack is just OK, not great. Things start well enough with decently spaced and energized music, playing with a strong supportive low end and alongside some fair crowd ambience. From there out, however, the track reveals its limitations. Punches and crashes in the ring never quite find a truly authentic flavor, coming across as crunchy and sloppy. A rowdy bar fight sequence and a buzzing helicopter represent some of the more aggressive moments in the film. Neither enjoys much more than cursory aggression, clarity and stage presence. Minor ambience, such as that heard in the background during a restaurant sequence in chapter three, never strives to accomplish more than push the most basic supportive elements into the stage. Dialogue is generally even and accurate, through sometimes scratchy and accompanied by the occasional underlying hiss. It's no great shakes, but this track does just enough to support the film's basic needs, nothing more and nothing less.
