Tyson Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Tyson suits up on Blu-ray with a quality 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Tyson employs plenty of vintage stock footage from the 1980s and 1990s; this standard definition material doesn't look pretty but it does reflect the quality of the broadcasts of that era and can't look any better than it does here. It's just part of the show and accepting the raw and rugged look of much of the film and concentrating on the subject material will greatly improve upon one's appreciation for the quality of the Blu-ray transfer. The newly-minted high definition interview clips with Mike Tyson, however, generally look strong; the segments offer rather high detail in the close-up shots of the film's subject. Facial hair, pores, scars, and his tattoo appear incredibly lifelike and vivid in the high definition spotlight. The set is well-lit by natural sunlight pouring through windows; as a result, backgrounds tend to be blown out and lost in the light, but the images of the champ in the foreground don't suffer as a result. Tyson delivers what may be best described as an incredibly plain and simple image, and the Blu-ray does a generally fabulous job with the material.


Tyson Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Tyson enters the ring with a front-heavy Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The film's dialogue is occasionally hard to hear due in part to lackluster source material in some of the vintage clips, and partially thanks to Tyson's rather thick lisp. The musical presentation is adequate throughout, this being the track's only real chance to stretch its legs a bit. There's a fair amount of clarity and a good sense of space to the music as it plays primarily through the front speakers. Tyson features next-to-no rear channel activity; a dialogue-centric presentation with the occasional sound effect -- for instance splashing waves in several exterior shots -- marks the only true departure from one of the most straightforward yet sufficiently effective soundtracks available on the Blu-ray market today.
