Scarface Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Scarface arrives on Blu-ray with a guns-blazing 1080p/VC-1 transfer, but walks away riddled with too many holes for my (complete) satisfaction. Don't get me wrong, there are a number of scenes that look quite good, fantastic even. Sadly, though, others don't fare so well. Edge enhancement has been applied rather liberally, edge halos and minor ringing are apparent throughout, intermittent (some will say judicious) noise reduction takes a toll, and crush is a serious issue. Night skies, shadows, dark hair and black suits melt together into a detail-sapping blob, delineation is problematic (at best), and contrast is occasionally hopped up on its own supply. A heaviness presides over the image that affects skintones from time to time and leaves too many shots, particularly low-lit interiors, gasping for air. Thankfully, all is not lost. Detail may sometimes disappear in the darkness, but when the lights come up, it returns in force. Fine textures range from passable to well-resolved to striking ("inconsistent" is another way to put it), edges are sharp (albeit too sharp at times), pores and fabric tend to pop, and grain is, more often than not, intact and refined. Moreover, colors are both brash and savory, black levels are inky, and primaries make their presence known (especially reds, which have a rich, corn-syrup-crimson gleam that would no doubt delight De Palma). The film has, quite simply, never looked better.

As for the encode itself, it's surprisingly free of compression anomalies. Why surprisingly? Universal has crammed a three hour film, a 7.1 lossless surround track, a 40-minute high definition documentary, two U-Control tracks, a string of standard definition extras and other bells and whistles on a single BD-50 disc. Eagle-eyed videophiles will spot a few brief bursts of artifacts in the Miami skies but, otherwise, there isn't much to complain about. Banding, macroblocking and other distractions are held at bay, meaning the aforementioned edge halos, occasional smeariness and severe crush are the only real problems of note. Impressive as it sometimes is, this is yet another Universal catalog transfer minted from a DVD-era master. It's not the worst of the studio's worst -- far from it -- but it doesn't deserve top marks either.


Scarface Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track doesn't disappoint, even if (in this case) the use of two additional channels doesn't necessarily produce a more seamless experience. Dialogue is clean, clear and well-prioritized, pans are nice and smooth, and effects light up the soundfield with remarkable ferocity. LFE output is loud and (deceptively) unruly, sinking its teeth into every chainsaw, M16, Uzi and grenade De Palma tosses at his audience. Rear speaker activity is pointed and aggressive as well, with plenty of Miami street noise, nightclub crowd chatter and directional whiz-bangs to make everything as engaging and enveloping as it presumably could be. There also isn't any debilitating hiss, and several scenes don't even show their age. Ambience is lacking at times, sure. Imperfections abound, no doubt. Scarface was released in 1983, though, so a fair bit of thinness and tinniness should be expected and summarily pardoned. Voices, gunshots and other elements in the mix are never affected to the extent that any major concerns will be raised. If anything, Universal's lossless remix retains the personality of the film's early '80s sound design, as it should. Those armed with appropriate expectations will be thrilled with the results.
