Sony is sure doing right by their catalog titles. In the Line of Fire makes another solid Blu Ray debut, even though it is nearly 15 years old.
Blu-Ray Review: In the Line of Fire
The Washington D.C. story is not particularly colorful but the achievements in cinematography appear to be capturing the crisp white of D.C. monuments. Grimier parts of the city reproduce well too, and the depth of field remains solid when looking down tall buildings.
Political rallies show a bit more color with the red, white and blue balloons shining, truly capturing the surreal disorientation Frank Horrigan feels.
I might have noticed one soft focus scene in the piano bar, but I'm sure that was always intended that way. There are enough sharp city pursuits and establishing shots that look like Discovery Channel goes to D.C. to make this a great Blu Ray demo.
