The Exterminator Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Exterminator features a steady but far from pristine 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. The image is fairly smooth and looks a bit washed out. Fine detail is limited; while the image enjoys a stability in high definition that's not available otherwise, the flat texture and frequent soft edges eliminate many of the clothing and facial details, leaving behind a dull and uninspired image instead. Colors, too, lack vibrancy, instead appearing faded and bland but not to an absolutely adverse extent. Detail and color never really come together; while one might improve in a scene, the other invariably falls behind. Black crush isn't much of an issue, but severe noise gives darker scenes a messy appearance. Banding and blocky backgrounds aren't common but are present. This is a serviceable transfer, and not at all bad for a relatively obscure picture being handled by a cult studio just now getting into releasing titles on Blu-ray.


The Exterminator Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

The Exterminator rolls onto Blu-ray with a pair of audio tracks, a "restored" DTS-HD MA 2.0 presentation alongside a monaural 1.0 DTS-HD MA option. Frankly, the latter is the slight winner amongst the two. The restored track is incredibly shallow. There's absolutely no punch, depth, or realism to it. Dialogue is replayed at a significantly low level; even cranked all the way up to reference levels isn't enough to even it out. Music, however, enjoys a touch more energy, even though there's an obvious scratchy and harsh edge to it. Spacing across the front is the track's strong suit. However, the various action scenes -- particularly the opening sequence in Vietnam -- is just lessened by the absence of vigor. Switching over the mono track yields slightly more balanced dialogue. Clarity improves slightly as well. Neither track is all that satisfying; nevertheless, the end result is at least acceptable and not quite a deal breaker.
