Air Force One hits hard on Blu-ray,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Air Force One [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Firstly, just to saw I certainly don't consider this to be the best film ever made, so my starting point is a 4 star rating. The actual Blu-ray transfer is pretty good. The picture is not super sharp but seems accurate to the source material and is consistent throughout. The soundtrack, an uncompressed PCM, hits very, very hard (at least on my system) during the action motions. The opening sequence has all hell breaking loose, with gunfire, helicopters etc. Later scenes with the escort planes and so on actually feel like you have a jet engine by your ear. It's very impressive, although I did find myself turning the volume up for the dialogue moments and down for the action, just out of consideration for my neighbours! Overall, recommended if you like this kind of film. Some may find it too cheesy. For me, it's a nice, good quality production to just sit back and enjoy without thinking too hard.
