The Karate Kid

 (2010)

The Karate Kid Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

12-year-old Dre Parker could've been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother's latest career move has landed him in China. Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying - and the feeling is mutual - but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts "the karate kid" on the floor with ease. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han, who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre realizes that facing down the bullies will be the fight of his life.

The Karate Kid Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

The Karate Kid dazzles on Blu-ray with a pristine, fresh-from-theaters 1080p transfer that's perfection in every regard. This is a colorful, clean, and highly detailed image that additionally sports nice depth and a stunning film-like texture that all make this one of the year's best transfers. Of the transfer's many positive attributes, perhaps none is more readily obvious than the handsome color reproduction on display throughout. The Karate Kid features an array of bright hues -- Mei Ying's yellow violin case, bright green foliage, Dre's light blue Detroit Lions T-shirt, and the school's orange uniform tops -- that are all faithfully and realistically reproduced, with no one color appearing over-saturated or underdeveloped. Additionally, fine details are often breathtaking; the various manmade and natural elements around China -- from the grungiest alleyways and the Great Wall itself to tree trunks and pebbly walkways in the local playground -- are impeccably realized and fit in perfectly with the transfer's limitless clarity and superb depth. The picture's varied selection of flesh tones all appear marvelously accurate, while blacks are naturally inky and never overpowering of critical details. The Karate Kid is sourced from a pristinely clear print that's free of even a hint of debris or speckling, and a fine layer of film grain coats a perfect high definition transfer. Blu-ray discs simply don't look any better than this.


The Karate Kid Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Matching The Karate Kid's stellar 1080p transfer is its crisp, accurate, and immeasurably satisfying DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Although The Karate Kid's soundtrack isn't of the powerful and mind-boggling variety, it's sure to win over audiences with the way it handles its every element to sheer sonic perfection. The track delivers everything from the high-octane popular music of Flo Rida heard during a dance video game sequence in chapter 10 to the soothing elements of James Horner's excellent score with equal precision, the picture's assortment of music playing with a spacious and smooth posture across the front and just the right level of back-channel and low-end supportive elements. Bass is wonderfully realized in both music and sound effects; there's just enough of a noticeable thud accompanying the various kicks and punches to give them a bit of additional oomph, but not to the point that they come across as cartoonish or phony. Atmospherics are superbly handled, too. Whether the falling rain that cascades around the soundstage as Dre and his mother leave Detroit or the combination of chirping birds, rustling leaves, gentle winds, and chatty children that create an entire aural world around Dre's new school in chapter three, Sony's lossless soundtrack never delivers anything but the most seamless and convincing of sonic environments. Dialogue is center-focused and never forced to compete with outside influences, and at several junctures through the film the spoken word realistically echoes throughout more cavernous locales, such as a concert hall or a spacious dojo. The Karate Kid lacks the more aggressive action elements of soundtracks that play bigger than what it has to offer, but don't let the lack of pure volume and action deter what is another pitch-perfect lossless soundtrack from Sony.
