The FP

 (2011)

The FP Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Two rival gangs fight for control of Frazier Park -- a deadly arena in competitive dance-fight video game "Beat-Beat Revolution."

For more about The FP and the The FP Blu-ray release, see the The FP Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Jason Trost, Lee Valmassy, Art Hsu
Directors: Brandon Trost, Jason Trost

The FP Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Whatever its shortcomings as film, The FP has been given a generally fine treatment on Blu-ray by Image Entertainment, assisted no doubt by the quality of the original shooting format. Brandon Trost used the same Canon XH-A1 digital cameras with which he was familiar from Crank 2. The budget didn't allow for a full digital intermediate, but the credits indicate some sort of color grading, probably on PCs. The result is a clean, professionally framed and processed digital image with depth, fine delineation of detail and expert framing.

The colors of The FP vary widely from the artificial fluorescence of the late night club scenes to the natural splendors of the brightly lit daytime scenes outdoors (mostly when seen in long shots) to the filth and decay of Frazier Park's local environs, especially where JTRO and Stacy live (the latter with an abusive father). The shifting hues are all faithfully reproduced on Image's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray.

Black levels are generally quite good, which is essential for the many scenes in the various clubs and dark interiors. Contrast levels are sufficient to reveal shadow detail without overwhelming it. There was no indication of any high frequency filtering or artificial sharpening, and no compression artifacts of any kind. The only obvious defect was occasional light banding in larger expanses of lighter colors, notably the sky. It's sufficiently subtle that most viewers probably won't notice.


The FP Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The DTS-HD MA 5.1 track renders the club dance music loudly and powerfully. The same goes for the film's one major pyrotechnic event, which occurs late in the game. For the rest, the sound editing is fairly basic, reflecting budgetary limits. The film relies heavily on the inventive score by George Holdcroft to fill the surrounds and create a coherent listening space. Holdcroft's invention never flags, and his underscoring becomes one of the most significant forces giving The FP a sense of unity.

Dialogue is frequently hard to understand, but that's not a fault of the DTS lossless track. As discussed in the main review, the characters speak in a language of their own, which often results in unintelligible exchanges.

(As with the recent Monster Brawl, Image has also included a track in DD 5.1 at the oddly low rate of 320 kbps. There is still no explanation of why anyone would want this.)
