Split Second

In a futuristic London, the rising sea levels mean that large areas are under feet of water. Hauer plays a cop who previously lost his partner to some strange creature. Now the creature is back and is after him. For more about Split Second and the Split Second Blu-ray release, see Split Second Blu-ray Review published by Jeffrey Kauffman on August 23, 2020 where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Split Second is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of the MVD Rewind Collection, an imprint of MVD Visual, with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. The back cover of this release states that this was "newly scanned, restored and color graded in 4K from the 35mm internegative". Svet gave only middling marks for the UK release, but that said, I might not have been even as generous as Svet was with regard to that release, and so my "mere" 3.5 here might be suggestive of more of an improvement than might initially be thought if simply looking at the scores divorced from our actual comments. That said, there are what I'm assuming are source limitations that even a "new, improved" scan hasn't been able to completely overcome. This does have a noticeably darker and generally cooler look than the UK release. Blues tend to predominate here more strongly, and the darker look along with a prevalence of really dimly lit scenes can mean the grain looks a bit different here as well. It can actually seem less noticeable in some dark scenes, while it is fairly chunky and yellow tinged in others (I've tried to offer examples of both in the screenshots, as well as offering reasonable facsimiles of some of the screenshots Svet took, so that those interested can do their own side by side comparison in full resolution, which is what I'd suggest). Despite the darker overall look here, I was consistently impressed with shadow detail, at least for the most part. There's surprisingly little crush given the overall dimness of so many of the interior (and sewer) scenes. I wouldn't say that overall clarity in this version is hugely different than the UK release, but even it is arguably improved, with some upticks in fine detail in close-ups in particular. Despite whatever restoration gauntlet this was put through, there are still fairly regular signs of admittedly usually minor damage, including quite a few white flecks and even a scratch or two.

Split Second features a problem free LPCM 2.0 track which more than capably supports the film's dialogue, effects and score. As with the visual element, it's obvious that there wasn't a huge budget for sound design, but there are some good effects in some of the underground scenes in particular, and the score sounds full bodied throughout (I would have loved to have heard Wendy Carlos' complete score). Dialogue is rendered cleanly and clearly throughout. While there are optional English subtitles, this has the same anomaly I've noticed in some other MVD releasess where the subtitles don't always sync up perfectly with the actual dialogue.

Product Description

HE’S SEEN THE FUTURE… NOW HE HAS TO KILL IT. HE’LL NEED BIGGER GUNS.

In the year 2008, the cops are better armed than before, but nothing has prepared them for this. Swift, sharp-clawed and deadly, something moves among them on the streets, in the alleyways, on the rooftops, tearing out human hearts and devouring them. Maverick cop "Harley" Stone (Rutger Hauer, Blade Runner) lost his partner to the beast, and now it looks like his girlfriend Michelle (Kim Cattrall, Big Trouble in Little China) is next on the killer's list. Even in the future, there aren't guns big enough to stop the creature's deadly force, but Stone has no choice. Teamed with rookie detective Durkin (Alastair Duncan, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Stone must stalk the edge of his own sanity if he is to destroy the rampaging Evil on the outside and banish the very real demons within . . . It could all be over in a SPLIT SECOND.

Featuring special effects by Stephen Norrington (Blade) and written by Gary Scott Thompson (The Fast and The Furious), along with an all-star supporting cast that includes Academy Award® Nominees Michael J. Pollard (Tango & Cash) and Pete Postlethwaite (Inception), this cult classic sci-fi thriller will have you on the edge of your seat!
