The Quest

 (1996)

The Quest Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Chris Dubois, an idealistic street criminal on the run from the police, embarks on an odyssey of self-discovery that spans the globe, from the slums of 1920's New York City to the mysterious Lost City of Tibet, high in the Himalayas. Kidnapped and enslaved by gun smugglers, sold by pirates and thrust into the murky underworld of gambling and kickboxing, Chris' journey takes him to forbidding Muay Thai Island where deadly martial arts are taught, the colonial splendor of British East Asia, the dank back alleys of Bangkok, desolate deserts once trod by the warriors of Genghis Khan and finally, the ancient Lost City.

For more about The Quest and the The Quest Blu-ray release, see the The Quest Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

The Quest Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

In an ironic turn, Universal has done a much finer job with The Quest on Blu-ray than with a number of more popular (and better) catalog titles. The 1080p, AVC-encoded presentation is consistently sharp and detailed, with solid blacks, vivid colors and a natural and readily identifiable grain pattern that never becomes obtrusive. The sole exceptions are a few brief location-establishing shots that have obviously been pulled from stock footage and can be instantly spotted as such.

The Quest being a Universal catalog title, it is axiomatic among certain posters at Blu-ray.com that any reviewer who says something complimentary about the video is (a) blind, (b) ignorant, (c) unworthy of credence, or (d) all of the above. Some posters offering these opinions base their judgments exclusively on star ratings and screencaps and don't even notice the inconsistency when they come back, after watching the actual disc, and offer a rating almost identical to the reviewer's.

There are those for whom the name "Universal" is synonymous with something called "DNR". The latter is a term that, to the extent it once had meaning, has ceased to have any beyond "I don't like the picture". Anyone familiar with a telecine bay or a digital colorist's workstation understands that there is no knob or setting labeled "DNR". The term has gained currency on the internet as yet one more example of the adage that "a little learning is a dangerous thing". If the concern is that the producers of a disc are filtering away detail for one purpose or another, I saw no indication of such treatment on The Quest while watching the disc on a properly calibrated 72" display.


The Quest Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

By far the best element of the Blu-ray of The Quest is its DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, which is loud, aggressive and active in all five regular channels. Whether it's the roar of the crowd at fights, the sound of the waves at sea or cannon fire during the pirate assault, the rear channels are almost always alive with discrete activity, even at low levels. The bass extension is loud and powerful without being boomy, as the cannons on Lord Dobbs's ship will immediately demonstrate. Dialogue is clearly rendered (Van Damme wisely keeps his own to a minimum), and the forgettable score by Randy Edelman folds into the mix and vanishes, because the sound effects are more interesting.
