Subway Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Luc Besson's Subway arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Optimum Home Entertainment.

I would like to say this upfront - the transfer for Subway has a fair share of problems, but I much rather have older catalog titles (that are unlikely to get proper restorations from the studios) look like it - raw and unfiltered - than have a technician DNR-ing them to death to give them a new, "sharper" and less "grainy", look. So, Optimum Home Entertainment, if you cannot afford to invest into fresh new transfers for some of these older foreign films, release them on Blu-ray without trying to degrain them.

It is very easy to tell that the Blu-ray transfer for Subway was struck from a dated source. Contrast ranges from good to very good to, occasionally, average. Clarity and detail could be very impressive at times (the opening 15-20 minutes) and then be somewhat disappointing (the first band rehearsal). The good news, however, is that the film grain is mostly kept intact. Digital noise is occasionally mixed with it, but I still quite like the raw look of this transfer. Generally speaking, the color-scheme is pleasing – reds, blues, greens, blacks and whites look fresh. There are a few unfortunate color pulsations that I noticed, however, which I believe have been inherited from the dated source. Finally, there are a few tiny flecks that I noticed popping up here and there, but heavy debris, dirt, or scratches are nowhere to be seen. To sum it all up, this is an acceptable Blu-ray release of a favorite film of mine, which, at the moment, I do not have a problem recommending to you. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" disc. Therefore, unless you have a native Region-B or Region-Free player, you won't be able to access is content).


Subway Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: French LPCM 2.0. For the record, Optimum Home Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

There are no serious issues to report with the French LPCM 2.0 track. The dialog is crisp and very easy to follow while Eric Serra's music score sounds surprisingly fresh. Furthermore, there are absolutely no pops, cracks, or hissings that I detected. To sum it all up, the LPCM 2.0 track offers substantially more depth and color than the French Dolby Digital 2.0 track found on the R1 SDVD release does. This is a real upgrade!
