Ivan Reitman's 1990 Kindergarten Cop is a fun police procedural / fish out of water romp that not only works, but allows us to join in the fun.

Part of that fun is that Mr. Schwarzenegger is right off some of the hottest fan favorites of the era. Looking at his CV, there seems to be a lapse around 2003-4, until around 2012-13, a period during which it was rumored that he had gone off to Tahiti to get away from the fray of celebrity.

Kino's new 4k UHD release of the film via Universal is a gorgeous affair, that appears very much akin to a premiere print via the camera of Michael Chapman. The main titles literally pop off the screen. Colors, densities, grain structure all appear perfect. A reference quality release for a film-based project of the era.

Audio, in DTS-HD MA 5.1 is rich, full and proscenium filling.

Image – 10 (Dolby Vision)

Audio – 10 (DTS-HD MA 5.1)

Pass / Fail – Pass

Plays nicely with projectors - Yes

Makes use of and works well in 4k - 7

Worth your attention - 7.25

Slipcover rating - 1

I was looking forward to this, but I've read in a private forum that the audio is padded with very boosted levels and deprived of the high frequencies, plus the 2.0 audio is a downmix of that upmix.

Interesting... I look forward to learning more about that...

I hope someone here will verify that rumor!
