Point of No Return

 (1993)

Point of No Return Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

She is society's worst nightmare, an antisocial misfit convicted of murder and sentenced to die. But a covert government agency may be able to transform her into a sleek, cool-as-ice assassin. Bridget Fonda ('Single White Female', 'Jackie Brown') stars as Maggie in this thriller directed by John Badham ('WarGames', 'Stakeout'). Dressed to kill, trained to survive, shes set loose in a deadly world where unexpected romance complicates things even more. Gabriel Byrne, Dermot Mulroney, Anne Bancroft and Harvey Keitel also star.

For more about Point of No Return and the Point of No Return Blu-ray release, see Point of No Return Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Bridget Fonda, Gabriel Byrne, Dermot Mulroney, Miguel Ferrer, Anne Bancroft, Olivia D'Abo
Director: John Badham

Point of No Return Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Once you get past its pervasive, depth-sapping grain field, Point of No Return's 1080p/VC-1 transfer represents another solid (albeit unremarkable) catalog release from Warner. It's clear that the film's source hasn't been properly remastered in quite some time -- white and black specks, print scratches, intermittent contrast wavering, and distracting edge enhancement all make their presence known -- but foreground definition and dimensionality rarely suffer as a result. From scene to scene, fine detail remains in tact, textures are well defined, and shadow visibility is revealing. More importantly, the image boasts a healthy appearance bolstered by inviting colors, warm primaries, and altogether impressive saturation leveling. A few problematic nighttime sequences struggle to resolve the deepest blacks and retain the clarity of every object, but the cleanliness of the technical transfer tends to make up for these and other print-related mishaps. I didn't detect any significant artifacting or banding, crush was never an issue, and Warner resisted the urge to slather the transfer with digital noise reduction (DNR). Considering Point of No Return's age and obscurity, fans will be relieved to see that it looks as good as it does.


Point of No Return Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Video quality aside, Warner gives Point of No Return its due diligence with an unexpectedly powerful Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track. Dialogue is crisp, nicely prioritized, and perfectly balanced throughout the soundfield. A few words are lost in the heat of the film's more chaotic gun battles, but the overly subdued lines are never of any importance. Not only are the rear speakers brimming with activity -- injecting convincing ambient effects into crowded spaces, enhancing the acoustics of almost every interior space, and increasing the immersion of the track with acute directionality -- the LFE channel adds substantial heft to everything it supports. Gunfire aggressively erupts from every direction, a third act car chase leads to a variety of sonic fireworks, and a granddaddy of an explosion will send a welcome shockwave through your home theater. Moreover, the film's soundtrack has been restored with exacting dynamics and clarity. The synthesized score is sharp and stable, Nina Simone's songs sound as if they were recorded yesterday, and dense bass beats resonate to great effect. While the tonal consistency of a few lesser sound effects reveal the film's age, I couldn't have been happier with the integrity and impact of Warner's lossless catalog remix.
