The Fisher King

 (1991)

The Fisher King Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A madman carries out a massacre in a popular New York bar, after hearing the popular DJ Jack Lucas rail against Yuppies.

Jack seeks redemption by helping Perry in his quest to recover what he believes is The Holy Grail, from the private Library of a New York Socialite and to win the heart of Lydia, the girl Perry has fallen in love with.

The Fisher King Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Image Entertainment has brought The Fisher King to Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's more than adequate, if a bit underwhelming. Meaning, the film certainly looks the best that it ever has on home video, but you get the sense that it probably could've looked better. I'm not sure what kind of source print Image used for the transfer, but to me it looks like it could be one or two steps removed from the original negatives—grain seems slightly heavier than it should be, and contrast is occasionally weak, with somewhat hazy black levels during the darker scenes. This is by no means a deal-breaker. The film is still a pleasure to watch in high definition, and though the print isn't quite perfect, it's clear that no attempt has been made to artificially scrub or enhance the image. There are no DNR abuses, no heavy-handed edge enhancement, no color boosting or tweaking. While a bit soft, the picture is naturally filmic, and the upgrade from the movie's DVD release is immediately apparent in better resolved textures and a greater sense of clarity overall. Aside from the occasionally weak blacks, color is strong too, with realistic skin tones and a warm palette. You will spot some light blemishes on the print—small specks, no major debris—but there are no overt compression problems or heavy noise. Fans will be pleased, although probably not wowed.


The Fisher King Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The same could be said for the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that Image Entertainment has included here—it's faithful to source, untouched by any digital alternations or new remastering, and it sounds good, even if it's rarely objectively impressive from a sound design perspective. The mix isn't particularly engaging—the rear channels only broadcast light ambience and occasional bleed from the musical score—but this isn't unusual for films from the early 1990s. As long as you know what to expect, you won't be disappointed. What the track lacks in all-surrounding immersion it makes up with consistent clarity, a satisfying dynamic range—which gets shown off during the few scenes that might loosely be called "action sequences"—and no hisses, pops, crackles, or dropouts. The music has plenty of heft—particularly Chill Rob G's "The Power"—and the dialogue is always clean and easy to understand. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
