The Upside Blu-ray Review



A comedic look at the relationship between a wealthy man with quadriplegia and an unemployed man with a criminal record who's hired to help him. Ralph Potts reviews the Blu-ray release of The Upside.

(max score: 5 )

( Max score: 100 )

89

Music by: Rob Simonsen
Written by: Jon Hartmere – Based on the film “The Intouchables”
Region Code: A,B,C

Release Date: May 21, 2019


"Based on a True Story"


Synopsis:

“Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston pair up to tell the inspirational true story of a genuine and unique friendship about a discouraged out-of-work ex-con and a wealthy quadriplegic
who unexpectedly come together and help each other bring back their zest for life.” – Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.


My Take:

In The Upside recently paroled ex-convict, Dell Scott (Hart) strikes up an unusual and unlikely friendship with his new employer, a quadriplegic billionaire, Phillip Lacasse (Cranston). From worlds apart, Dell and Phillip form an unlikely bond, bridging their differences and gaining invaluable wisdom in the process, giving each man a renewed sense of passion for all of life’s possibilities.

Based on the French film The Intouchables which was inspired by a true story, The Upside is an unnecessary remake that while certainly not a bad film, pales in comparison to the original on nearly every level. The script lacks the character depth and enriching bond established between the principal characters as it strives to borrow what is purportedly the best moments from the original. What happens is that it leaves the heartwarming melody contained in the wonderful subtext found in the original and substitutes one note humor, cliched characterizations and forced drama that doesn’t work.

In addition to that, changes made to the story remove several key characters/relationships, folding three of them into the one played by Nicole Kidman, while adding one very specific and overtly dramatic encounter that derailed an important component that derailed the original film’s beautifully handled romantic element. All the things that made “The Intouchables” so moving, funny and endearing are missing from The Upside. I have no problem with the performances by Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston. Nicole Kidman’s talents were completely wasted though.

As my wife and I watched we were both taken out of the film due to the poor handling of an already wonderful story about two very different men who would come to find one another and form a bond of friendship that would last forever. The Upside as a standalone comedy/drama isn’t terrible, especially if you enjoy Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston but, as a remake of one of my all-time favorite films, it’s a complete and utter misfire that would have been better off not being made.


Replay Value:


Parental Guide:

The rating is for suggestive content and drug use.


AUDIO/VIDEO - By The Numbers:
REFERENCE = 92-100/EXCELLENT = 83-91/GOOD = 74-82/AVERAGE = 65-73/BELOW AVERAGE = under 65

**My audio/video ratings are based upon a comparative made against other high definition media/blu-ray disc.**



Audio: 86
(Each rating is worth 4 points with a max of 5 per category)

  • Dynamics:
  • Low frequency effects:
  • Surround Sound presentation:
  • Clarity/Detail:
  • Dialog Reproduction:
  • DSU/DTS Neural:X Rating * (non-rated element): NA



Video: 92
(Each rating is worth 4 points with a max of 5 per category)


  • Resolution/Clarity:
  • Black Level/Shadow Detail:
  • Color Reproduction:
  • Fleshtones:
  • Compression:



The Upside comes to Blu-ray Disc from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment featuring 1080p AVC encoded video and lossless DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound.

High definition detail is notable as images are firmly resolved, with defining sharpness and dimensional depth. Colors are beautifully rendered with revealing delineation tonal warmth and vibrant textures. Fleshtones appear descriptive with discernible complexional variety that brings out the finest gradations in the differing complexional types among the cast. Blacks are a solid shade of deep black with excellent dynamic range and discernible highlights. Contrast is well balanced which enriches both light and dark onscreen elements.

The lossless soundtrack doesn’t consistently engage the entire surround platform however it has moments where it comes to life and reproduces the source elements with aplomb. Dialog has definitive presence with refined vocal character and excellent room penetration. Dynamic range is very good which lends subtle distinction to low level sounds and gravity to broader ones. This soundtrack isn’t demonstration worthy but for a comedy it readily delivers a satisfying listening experience that didn’t leave me disappointed.


Bonus Features:
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Gag Reel
  • Onscreen Chemistry: Kevin and Bryan
  • Creating a Story of Possibility
  • Bridging Divisions
  • Embracing Positivity
  • Presenting a Different Side of Kevin Hart
  • Theatrical Trailer
  • DVD
  • Digital Copy


Final Thoughts:

Based on the French film “The Intouchables” which is inspired by a true story The Upside is a misfire that fails to capture the heart and soul of the original. It comes to Blu-ray from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment featuring excellent high definition audio/video and a worthwhile supplemental package. The Upside is worth seeing, especially for fans of its two stars but, if you’re interested in a film that captures the essence of the friendship between the two men depicted in its story “The Intouchables” is truly wonderful.

"it’s a complete and utter misfire that would have been better off not being made." Whoa, the gloves were off on that statement. That's too bad, it really looked promising to me. The studios are so skilled at the trailer science, that's for sure. I'm curious Ralph, with a film like this, how can you then give it *** for replay value?

Greetings,

You left out part of my comments with your quote. I said that "As a remake.........."

Seriously, it's not a terrible film on its own but, when held up to the original (true story) it's not in the same league.

I thought the same thing. The Intouchables the version to watch. This version was a complete disaster.

Everyone should watch the original, incredibly moving and possibly one of the funniest movies i've ever seen.

No need to do a remake!

There’s was no need to make that movie. The only reason they did is because ppl don’t want to watch the original with subtitles.

I didn't know there was an original; and yes, I find sub-titles most distracting, I may as well be watching a silent film.

I'm sure; there's a German one about this artist during WWII, but it's 3 hours long !
I find having to sit there and constantly read through the movie just takes me right out of the story.
It's very frustrating missing out on things because of that.

Perfect review Ralph, completley agree.

Intouchables was a fantastic film i am from the UK and i made many people watch this including friends who hate reading subtitles and every time the response was best movie seen in years.

This remake had no chemistry and also is a french story which did not translate to an american setting.

Imagine a remake of cinema paridiso set in america, no thanks.

I have watched many foreign movies and usually turn out to be the best of the year. I know most americans do not like foreign films but you are missing out on so much.

Capernaum
Under the tree
Padman
The 12th Man
Tsotsi
The Handmaiden
A seperation
Incendies

Watch any of the above and will make you not care about reading subtitles.

I have not seen the original movie mentioned, and probably glad I hadn't when we did couples night out at the Movie Theater. We all enjoyed this very much, though I know far from Oscar contending. I personally liked the interplay between Hart and Cranston.

"The Intouchables" was my favorite film from that year, and included 2 of the most joyous scenes I'd seen in a long time.


I'm not expecting anything nearly as good, but I'm still curious to see this remake. (Not a Kevin Hart fan, either.)

Just received and watched the "remake" tonight

A lot of negativity above regarding the remake.

I'm not a critic. All I know is: Was it...
Based on a true story?
Did it make me smile/laugh?
Was there emotion?
A good story line?
Good acting?
Kept my interest through the film?
Would I watch again?
Glad I purchased?
Would I recommend?

To each question I answer, Yes.

I don't care if the original was better or not. I based my enjoyment of the film on how the movie stood on its own.

I would highly recommend.
