Streets of Fire Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Walter Hill's Streets of Fire arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Second Sight Films.

The high-definition transfer is problematic. It has been struck from a dated source with a number of serious issues and it clearly shows. Close-ups never impress. Moderate to heavy noise consistently affects definition and in select areas even collapses the image (see screencapture #6). Contrast levels also fluctuate. Some of the brighter indoor footage, for instance, can look unbearably harsh. Additionally, light to moderate halo effects are very easy to spot throughout the entire film. Color reproduction is also disappointing. During the stage performances one can be fooled to believe that colors are lush and stable, but saturation is indeed problematic. Also, the presence of the noise mentioned earlier further affects color stability. The only relatively good news is that there are no large cuts, damage marks, or debris. All in all, it is disappointing to see that this very colorful and really quite beautiful film isn't transitioning to Blu-ray with a stronger high-definition transfer. As far as I am concerned, it can and should look substantially better in high-definition. (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).


Streets of Fire Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Second Sight Films have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

I viewed the film with the 5.1 track and have to say that I was quite impressed with its dynamic intensity. The majority of the action sequences, in particular, boast very good depth. Ry Cooder's soundtrack as well as the long stage performances have also benefited from the lossless treatment - there is a nice range of nuanced dynamics and balance is very good. The dialog is crisp, stable, free of problematic background hiss, and easy to follow. There are no audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
