For more about Repo Man and the Repo Man Blu-ray release, see Repo Man Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Repo Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Alex Cox's Repo Man arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

The master from which the high-definition transfer was struck must have been prepared by Universal Studios at least a couple of years ago. Its basic characteristics, however, are strong, and quite similar to the basic characteristics of the high-definition transfer used for Eureka Entertainment's Blu-ray release of Douglas Trumbull's Silent Running.

Image depth and clarity are pleasing, particularly during the daylight sequences. Most close-ups also reveal fine textures that are simply missing from the R1 DVD release of Repo Man. Traces of mild denoising, however, are at times easy to spot (see screencapture #14). Despite occasionally looking somewhat soft, the nighttime sequences are also pleasing. The best news, however, is that there are no traces of overzealous sharpening, which is a serious problem with many Universal Studios catalog releases. A layer of light grain is also present throughout the entire film, though occasionally it is mixed with light noise and even artifacts. Color reproduction is also a lot more convincing here - on the R1 DVD release, the greens at the end of the film look incredibly shaky; here they never look blocky. Finally, there are a few minor specks popping up here and there, but large cuts, damage marks, or warps are nowhere to be seen. All in all, this Blu-ray release of Repo Man represents a very fine upgrade over the existing R1 DVD release of the film. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 in order to access its content).


Repo Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track and Music & Effects DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The official press release and the press sheet I received indicate that in addition to the DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track the Blu-ray will have a 5.1 remix. My screener, however, does not have one, so I assume that the final market version won't have one either.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is strong. It has a good range of nuanced dynamics that open up the action scene rather well. The famous punk soundtrack also gets a decent boost. However, do not expect the DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track to test the muscles of your audio system - its strength is its ability to bring back to the film colors and nuances that are lost on the lossy tracks from the DVD releases. For the record, there are no sync issues or audio dropouts to report in this review.
