True Romance

 (1993)

True Romance Blu-ray features mediocre video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Runaway lovers Clarence and Alabama (Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette) play a dangerous game when they come to possess a suitcase of mob contraband. They head for Los Angeles, where they'll sell the goods and begin a new life. But both sides of the law have other ideas. Screenwriter Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown) and director Tony Scott (Top Gun, Spy Game) shoot the works in this hard-edged mix of hip wit and dazzling action with an electrifying ensemble cast to die for.

For more about True Romance and the True Romance Blu-ray release, see True Romance Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken
Director: Tony Scott

True Romance Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Sadly, True Romance features a drab and dreary 1080p/VC-1 transfer that fails to recover from a slew of fundamental technical issues. Each scene admittedly looks better than it ever has before, but skintones are either flushed, bronzed, or smeared, contrast is inconsistent and murky, blacks are often left unresolved, shadow delineation is underwhelming, and an unnecessarily heavy application of noise reduction robs the image of facial detail, fine textures, and overall clarity. While some slight edge enhancement has been implemented to artificially "fix" these less-than-desirable side effects, it merely adds minor ringing to the transfer's growing list of problems. Taken as a whole, it isn't a complete loss -- as squishy and overworked as every close-up may be, I doubt the film could have looked any better unless the studio had granted it an expensive, original print restoration -- but the picture is flat and lifeless throughout. Diehard Romancers will probably declare this to be the version to own since it boasts a notable upgrade over the 2002 Special Edition DVD. However, casual fans and newcomers alike will be left wondering what went wrong. Hopefully, Warner will revisit Scott and Tarantino's lovechild in the future and give it a proper high definition treatment.


True Romance Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

True Romance arrives on Blu-ray with a decidedly decent Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless surround track that -- despite a variety of dull, dated, and disappointing source elements -- makes a solid first impression (especially when you realize the film turns sixteen in September). Dialogue is clean and clear (even though prioritization is occasionally wonky), LFE support adds some much-needed oomph to engines and gunfire, and dynamics are noticeably improved compared to the 2002 DVD's bland audio mix. More importantly, while the conversational nature of the film lends itself to a front-heavy audio presentation, the rear speakers inject enough ambience and acoustic realism to create a suitably immersive soundfield. Pans are slightly stocky and directionality is occasionally imprecise, but I didn't get the sense that either issue should be attributed to the proficiency of Warner's track. If anything, True Romance could have used a more thorough restoration to give every word and scream the sort of clarity and polish audiophiles expect from a top-tier, catalog release.
