Speed

 (1994)

Speed Blu-ray delivers great video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

L.A.P.D. SWAT team specialist Jack Traven is sent to diffuse a bomb that a revenge-driven extortionist has planted on a bus. But until he does, Jack and passenger Sandra Bullock must keep the bus speeding through the streets of Los Angeles at more than 50 miles per hour -- or the bomb will explode.

For more about Speed and the Speed Blu-ray release, see Speed Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Sandra Bullock, Joe Morton, Jeff Daniels, Alan Ruck
Director: Jan de Bont

Speed Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

While delivering a fine looking transfer, this 1080p, 2.35:1 image is definitely not Fox's best effort, but is impressive nevertheless for a film that saw its first release in 1994 (time flies when you're watching Speed). Definitely benefitting from a high-definition release, the movie holds up very well. I cannot compare it to the DVD releases of the film as I never purchased it for that format, but I have owned this film on both VHS and LaserDisc, and the quality obvious blows those two out of the water. I'd imagine it fares much better than the DVD as well, as the overall presentation makes for an above average Blu-ray viewing experience. This image is best described as "very good." The image retains the fine layer of natural grain inherent to film, though it is so light at times that it is hardly visible. Detail is only moderately good. We can see sweat on close-ups of faces, but little other very fine definition (either that or these actors had a lot of make-up on to smooth them out). There might be just a hint of red in flesh tones, but they look very good and accurate for the most part. Some scenes exhibit a small amount of softness, notably during one of the close-up shots of Joe Morton's character. Colors appear natural and pleasing -- from the bus' light blue exterior and its yellow and blue interior seats, to the clothing worn by the passengers, or to the interiors of various locations -- all are reproduced exceptionally well. The occasional black spots pop up, though I didn't notice the first one until almost 49 minutes into the movie, and noted only a few more afterwards, definitely not a distraction or a reason to lower the score too much. Overall, this is a very good, but not exceptional, effort from Fox, and all things taken into account, notably the film's age, the quality on this disc is good enough to please any Speed fans out there.


Speed Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Before I reviewed for this site I screened Speed on Blu-ray at home using equipment that decoded only the "core" 1.5 Mbps DTS track. It sounded very good then, but the lossless mix blew me away this go-round. It's fantastic, in fact, an entertaining mix that is boisterous, powerful, all-encompassing, and flat out fun to listen to. In fact, Speed won two Oscars for its sound. The first thing to notice is one of the better action scores (written by Mark Mancina, Training Day) that resonates and screams action, and is easily identifiable as the score to Speed. The theme music plays over the opening titles and sounds very nice and smooth as it fills the room easily and gracefully, but with subtle power and authority. Some excellent discreet effects appear in the rear channels, some of the best, most defined, clear, and perfectly placed I've heard. Imaging is excellent with these effects as well as with the entirety of the track in general. Several of the fine discrete effects are noticed right away after the opening title sequence and something is heard almost constantly in the back channels the rest of the way. Dialogue reproduction is excellent, focused in the center, never lost in the action, the voices clean, clear, and easily discernible. Bass is excellent, not quite foundation-rattling, but it gets the job done and often sounds loud and deep without becoming overwhelming and distracting. The elevator drop at the beginning of the film, for example, resounds with a "thud" when it hits the bottom floor, the effect sounding fantastic -- deep, loud, exciting, and exhilarating. The entire soundtrack, from the loudest explosion to the softest, simplest effect is reproduced with flair and finesse, making this mix one of the most fun I've listened to yet. Speed's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack easily ranks as one of my favorite Blu-ray mixes.
