Replicant

 (2001)

Replicant Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

The day before he retires, Seattle police detective Jake Riley almost captures The Torch, a notorious serial killer who preys on single women. After this incident, Riley is offered a job with the National Security Force. They take Riley to a top-secret science lab, where they have cloned an exact copy of the Torch from a sample of his DNA. The clone, called Replicant, shares Torch's physique as well as his telepathic abilities. As the Torch's genetic double, Replicant can instinctively lead the authorities to his other half. But before Replicant can be used effectively, he needs to be taught simple human behavior, such as speech and movement. Riley is assigned to look after Replicant and train him on the streets of the city. But when it comes time to set Replicant loose on the trail of the Torch, Riley can't be sure whose side this genetic clone will ultimately be on.

For more about Replicant and the Replicant Blu-ray release, see Replicant Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Replicant Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 14Mbps), Replicant possesses a largely impressive video transfer with the exception of one critical element. The aspect I'm referring to is the appearance of excessive brightness boosting throughout the length of the film, which severely impacts the depth of black levels and lead to contrast issues from time to time (a good example is the warehouse scene around the 26 minute mark). Naturally, the color spectrum is also altered by the white-level boosting, leading to some less-than-stellar skin tones and hues that lack proper richness. On the positive side, fine object detail is incredibly clear throughout the majority of the film, revealing textures in clothing and glistening drops of sweat on the forehead of Rooker or Van Damme. I didn't detect the presence of edge halos, artifacting, aliasing, or other issues in the encoding of the transfer, but you should be aware there are several flashback sequences that contain a thick layer of grain (a fully intentional element of the source material). Most fans of the film will likely find this a worthy upgrade with the transition to high-definition, provided you can get past the overly bright attributes of the transfer.


Replicant Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Continuing with their impressive track record of including a lossless audio mix on budget-conscious catalog releases, Lionsgate delivers a highly proficient DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix that incorporates every speaker in your home theater. There are plenty of opportunities for the audio track to shine and it rarely disappoints as long as you approach the production with the understanding that this isn't an expensive Hollywood action film. From the whizzing of bullets to the shattering of glass, every effect is well-placed in the soundfield and afforded an excellent level of clarity. Continuing with positive trends, the dialogue, music and effects are well balanced without any singular element overpowering another. My only real complaint about the overall audio experience isn't related to the technical merits of the Blu-ray track, but might be of interest to those considering a purchase. Despite accepting this as a low-budget action flick, I was surprised by the generic musical choices that sounded like transplants from productions of the early 80's. Additionally, the dialogue felt a bit disjointed with the onscreen action, though it appeared to be a result of post-production recording rather than an issue with the timing in the DTS track on the disc. Aside from those minor complaints, I'm more than happy with the audio offering on the disc.
