Waist Deep

 (2006)

Waist Deep Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

"I'll always come back for you," single father O2 tells his young son Junior. This parental promise is put to the test when O2 is suddenly plunged into a do-or-die situation; trying to go straight for Junior's sake, this recently paroled ex-con is forced to go back outside the law after his son is kidnapped in a carjacking. The resulting chase and shootout have left Junior in the hands of Meat, the vicious leader of the Outlaw Syndicate. O2's shady cousin Lucky tries to mediate, but is caught between criminal and family loyalties. The only person who can or will help O2 get his son back is wily street-smart hustler Coco, whose path fatefully crossed O2's just moments before the kidnapping. When Lucky gets word to O2 that Meat expects $100,000 for Junior's freedom, O2 and Coco seize the opportunity to pit rival elements of the South Los Angeles underworld against each other. "It's either all or nothing," realizes O2. With the clock ticking down, the heat between O2 and Coco rises as they become a lawbreaking couple, on an action-packed tear through a range of Los Angeles neighborhoods. Can they outwit the underworld and save Junior and themselves?

Waist Deep Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Waist Deep hits the ground running with a locked and loaded 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. Unfortunately, a single issue undermines every stride the presentation makes: rampant aliasing. Curtis-Hall employs a variety of cameras, the least of which produce low-res establishing shots plagued by pixelation, blocking and stair-stepping. Normally I'd chalk every instance up to a source issue, knock off half-a-point for the frequency of the inherent distraction and call it a day. But the aliasing persists, worsens and begins invading shots that, by all accounts, shouldn't be plagued by such abnormalities. Watch Gibson's nose and arms, pay attention to his gun and the hood of his car, look closely at rooftops and doorways. Granted, some viewers will overlook it entirely -- particularly those with small to medium displays -- but edges shimmer, shift and splinter often enough to rile up any ardent videophile. And once you spot one instance, it's all but impossible to miss every instance thereafter.

The rest of the presentation isn't nearly as problematic, but still suffers. Shane Hurlbut's streetwise colors are sinewy and skintones are nicely saturated, contrast is consistent and delineation is decent. But black levels, while rich and inky when the Los Angeles sun is at its peak, take a dive when the lights go down, miring entire stretches of the film in murky shadows and debilitating darkness. Detail is uneven as well. Scenes that are bright and bold feature commendable textures and crisp object definition, but nighttime scenes don't fare so well. Delineation takes a hit, clarity falters and the image ceases to warrant praise. Thankfully, aside from the aforementioned aliasing, the integrity of Universal's technical encode isn't called into question. Some fleeting source noise litters a handful of tricky evening shots, but significant artifacting, banding and other compression mishaps aren't a factor. Ultimately, if you can't spot any aliasing, consider yourself extremely lucky. Your impression of Waist Deep's transfer will be more positive than mine.


Waist Deep Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Waist Deep rights some of its wrongs with a guns-blazing DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. Tenacious and tough, the LFE channel rarely relents, digging its fingers into every shootout, car chase and gangsta-rap upbeat and beat-down that erupts on screen. The rear speakers aren't quite so commanding, but they do support the whole of the soundscape nicely. Ambient effects and interior acoustics are convincing, dynamics and directionality are spot on and, while the film's hip-hop soundtrack tends to dominate the mix, prioritization is precise and efficient. Better still, dialogue is crisp, clean and intelligible, and only a handful of lines get dragged beneath the action. The film's sound design is pushy, abusive even, but it suits the tone of the flick and helps showcase the lossless track's power and prowess.
