Red Scorpion

 (1988)

Red Scorpion Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Nikolai is a Russian Spetznaz agent assigned to murder the leader of an African rebel movement. When he encounters the guerrilla faction, Nikolai discovers that he is sympathetic to their cause and, plagued by doubt, he botches the assassination. After being captured by the rebels, he is left in the desert to die, but is rescued by local bushmen. He adopts their lifestyle and launches a revenge attack against his former employers.

Red Scorpion Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Joseph Zito's Red Scorpion arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Synapse Films.

The basics of this high-definition transfer appear practically identical to the ones of the high-definition transfer used for their Blu-ray release of Red Scorpion in the United Kingdom. Generally speaking detail and depth are quite nice, especially during close-ups. Most panoramic shots also convey pleasing fluidity. Light grain is visible throughout the entire film, though as it was the case with the Arrow release some extremely light noise is occasionally mixed with it. Color reproduction is adequate, and I don't see any major improvements to mention here (the back cover of this release notes that the Synapse Films used a new 2K High-Definition Digital Restoration). Compression also appears to be equally good. Lastly, there is at least one really tiny digital glitch on the transfer (it was pointed to me by one of our members), but I could not spot it during normal viewing. To sum it all up, this is pleasing presentation of Red Scorpion, which shold please its fans. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to view it on your PS3 or SA regardless or your geographical location).


Red Scorpion Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Synapse Films have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Synapse Films have included a 5.1 track which does open slightly more certain sequences throughout the film. A few of the shootouts, in particular, have decent movement in the surrounds. The overall dynamic movement remains rather limited, though the lossless track is not to be blamed for it. As I mentioned in our review of the UK release, more often than not it is quite obvious that Red Scorpion had a a fairly modest budget. The dialog is crisp, clean, and stable.
