Quicksilver Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Quicksilver was shot by Thomas Del Ruth, who gave the film some of the urban grit he would bring a few years later to The Running Man. (Del Ruth could also do clean and glossy, as he'd shown on The Breakfast Club and would display throughout multiple seasons of The West Wing.) Sony has done their usual creditable job on their catalog titles released through Image, and Del Ruth's imagery has been rendered intact, which means that some viewers will complain about a handful of "grainy" shots, mostly interiors and night scenes. The bulk of the film is relatively smooth, though it has the film-like texture that anyone who attended cinemas in this era will remember and appreciate. Preserved with the grain is substantial detail, enough to make out all the California license plates in a cityscape that is attempting to stand in for New York (or, alternatively, the L.A.-like streets and back alleys in a town attempting to stand in for San Francisco; take your pick).

Blacks are generally solid, and contrast does not blow out shadow detail except by design (a notable example is a shot of Bacon and Fishburne silhouetted against a gray morning sky). Colors are varied and range from muted to vibrant, depending on the locale. It's certainly no accident that the down 'n' out environs where the bike messengers congregate are more colorful than the chillier toned trading floors where the brokers scream their orders.

With no extras, there's plenty of room on a BD-25 for the 107-minute film. The average bitrate of 25.34 Mbps is enough to accommodate the various scenes of bikes and car traffic whizzing by, which were impossible to capture adequately in screenshots, due to motion blur.


Quicksilver Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Quicksilver's original stereo soundtrack is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0, and you can tell almost from the opening that it was intended to sell records. It has the pop, sizzle and boom of music designed for radio play, and in fact the theme song, "Quicksilver Lightning", written by Giorgio Moroder and Dean Pitchford and sung by The Who's Roger Daltrey, was a minor hit (certainly more so than the movie). Additional songs feature vocals by such familiar Eighties figures as Peter Frampton, John Parr and Ray Parker Jr., while the musical underscore was provided by Tony Banks of Genesis. The music gets the benefit of good stereo separation, and it doesn't interfere with either the dialogue or basic sound effects, which do their job but are nothing special.
