Taxi

 (1998)

Taxi Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In Marseille, France, an aspiring racecar driver named Daniel, is a Vespa pizza-delivery boy who just quit his job and became a taxi driver. With his supercharged Peugeot 406 he eludes the police while quickly transporting his fares to their destinations. Finally caught by the police for a huge speed infraction, he is forced to help Émilien, a down-on-his-luck police inspector, on the trail of professional German bank robbers driving supercharged Mercedes. Trying to juggle a budding relationship with his beautiful girlfriend Lili and a need for high-speed chases, Daniel helps Émilien so that he does not lose his license and quite possibly his job.

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

Director: Gérard Pirès
Writer: Luc Besson
Starring: Samy Naceri, Frédéric Diefenthal, Marion Cotillard, Manuela Gourary, Emma Wiklund, Bernard Farcy

Taxi 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, Gerard Pires' Taxi arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French label ARP Selection.

Generally speaking, detail and depth are far better than those seen on previous DVD releases of Taxi. More often than not the daylight footage, for instance, boasts the type of depth that we have come to expect from good Blu-ray releases. Colors are stable and appropriately saturated. Contrast is also pleasing. However, there are traces of extremely light denoising and sharpening corrections. They never become overly distracting, but the larger your screen is, the easier it might be for you to spot their presence. During close-ups with plenty of natural light these traces are typically easier to see than during sequences where light is restricted (see screencapture #2), but there are also sequences with wider panoramic shots where the more sensitive amongst might also spot them. Finally, some light compression artifacts are also visible from time to time. All in all, clearly this is the best Taxi has ever looked, but I feel that the presentation could have been even more convincing. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray release. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Taxi Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: French DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Frech DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, ARP Selection has provided optional English and French SDH subtitles for the main feature. Whent turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

The lossless audio track opens up the film exceptionally well. The shootouts are predictably crisp and punchy, but the racing footage is guaranteed to surprise viewers with its wide range of dynamics. The screeching tires and powerful engines sound great. There are no balance issues. Also, the dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow. The English translation is very good.
