Runaway Train 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, Andrei Konchalovsky's Runaway Train arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

Excluding a few tiny specks that pop up early into the film and some extremely light noise that occasionally sneaks in, the technical presentation is indeed as good as I hoped it would be. The majority of the close-ups, even those from inside the train where light is occasionally restricted, look quite wonderful - depth and clarity are very pleasing (see screencaptures #2 and 4). The larger panoramic shots also boast consistently pleasing fluidity despite the fact that many of them were obviously shot under different conditions (see screencaptures #1 and 5). Colors are well saturated and stable, never appearing boosted. Contrast levels are stable. Furthermore, there are absolutely no traces of excessive degraining corrections. Sharpening corrections have not been applied either. Unsurprisingly, the film has a very solid and very stable organic look. Lastly, compression is also very good. When blown through a digital projector, the film remains tight around the edges and appropriately crisp. To sum it all up, anyone who has previously seen Runaway Train on DVD will be enormously pleased with the film's transition to Blu-ray. There are notable upgrades in every single area we typically address in our reviews. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region- Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Runaway Train Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Arrow Video have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

I am very pleased with the lossless track. Trevor Jones' score is as atmospheric as Simon Boswell's score in Hardware and the lossless track really allows it to shine in all the right places. The synthesizers, in particular, sound great. The dialog and the various noises from train are also pleasingly crisp. For the record, there are no audio dropouts, distortions, or pops.
