Play It to the Bone

 (1999)

Play It to the Bone Blu-ray delivers great video and horrible audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Best buddies and sparring partners Vince and Cesar are worn-out, over-the-hill prizefighters who jump at one last, unexpected chance to work in the big time. But when they step into the ring in Las Vegas, friendship is replaced by fierce competition, as Vince and Cesar tangle in a dramatic fight to the finish, where only the winner will earn a shot at the title.

For more about Play It to the Bone and the Play It to the Bone Blu-ray release, see Play It to the Bone Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Woody Harrelson, Antonio Banderas, Lolita Davidovich, Lucy Liu, Tom Sizemore, Richard Mazur
Director: Ron Shelton

Play It to the Bone Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Disney has provided Mill Creek with clean source material for Play It to the Bone, and the result is a wonderfully sharp, colorful and detailed 1080p, AVC-encoded image that showcases the film's anamorphic widescreen photography. The cinematographer was Mark Vargo, who directed second unit on Tin Cup and had spent several decades shooting effects for major studio films. The attention to detail shows in the delicate shadings of the Southwest's landscapes, the panache of Vegas, the hyper-intensity of the boxing ring and the dusty realism of the Greek diner where the travelers first encounter Lia. Blacks are deep, colors "pop" where they should (e.g., the special shade of green on Grace's beloved convertible), flesh tones look natural and film grain is lightly visible if you look for it. I saw no DNR, compression or other digital artifacts. This is by far the best image I've seen from Mill Creek to date.


Play It to the Bone Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  0.5 of 5

Now the bad news. This is a 1999 film released theatrically, according to the end credits, in Dolby Digital, DTS and SDDS. The 2000 DVD was released by Buena Vista in DD 5.1. So why is the Blu-ray limited to a 2.0 track in DTS lossless?

I've said in the past that I prefer to evaluate what's on the disc instead of a theoretical alternative, but that only applies when we're talking about the same track in different formats. When the film's original audio mix is 5.1, but Blu-ray purchasers are fobbed off with a stereo surround mix, then, lossless or no, it's a different story.

Granted, the lossless 2.0 mix sounds quite good. It's immersive, has good fidelity and clear dialogue, and does justice to Alex Wurman's score and song selections from artists as diverse as John Lee Hooker, Moby and Los Lobos. But especially when we step into the boxing ring with Cesar and Vince, where the point of view keeps changing and the sound cues were obviously designed to change with them, the loss of the sound engineers' original work is unfortunate -- and unnecessary.
