Prison Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Prison arrives on Blu-ray with a rather good-looking high definition presentation. It's fairly soft and fuzzy to open -- the execution sequence feels almost dreamlike, which, in fact, it turns out to be -- but the film sharpens up nicely afterwards. This is never the pinnacle of Blu-ray clarity and perfect detailing, but Shout! Factory has produced a good, clean Blu-ray, one that's gently filmic with a light grain overlay. Details are always adequate, and very good in the brighter scenes out in the prison's courtyard. It captures the old, battered, roughly textured walls quite nicely; the same may be said of denim jeans, prison shirts, and general facial details. Things can get a little murky in darker shots, but the general stability more than satisfies in such scenes. Colors follow suit; they're at their brightest and most balanced in well-lit scenes, and basic shades hold their own in the prison's bowels. Black levels are fairly even and accurate throughout, ditto flesh tones. There's very little in the way of wear and tear; a few vertical lines are really the only eyesores here. Edge halos are few and other unwanted attributes are also minimal. This isn't the best Blu-ray catalogue transfer to date, but it's a solid one that fans of the film and genre aficionados both should enjoy.


Prison Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Prison's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack is disappointingly inconsistent. It begins well enough with an obvious cinematic flair, a rather big presentation with good spacing and clarity of an enjoyable, classically styled genre score. The track also makes good use of the entire stage in placing positive, distinct sound effects here and there, like a ringing telephone off to one side or precisely placed ambient effects throughout the prison. Unfortunately, such are the highlights of the track; it begins to wobble, lightly at first and more prominently later in the film. The track plays with a general unevenness to it. Wide, reverberating footfalls in the empty prison sound a bit detached in one early scene, and a dialogue exchange at the same time sounds rather shallow. That shallow dialogue remains through much of the movie; it's almost lost in a few scenes and never quite as prominent and accurate as it might should be. A big wall of a wind-like sound in chapter three lacks precision clarity but does offer some heavy low end power. There's a good heft to thunder and machine gun fire late in the film, but again there's an evident absence of crispness and clarity. All around, the track feels rather uneven. It's good enough to get listeners through, but it's far from perfect.
