13 Assassins Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Magnolia brings 13 Assassins to Blu-ray with a more-than-satisfying 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer. Shot on Super35mm, the movie retains its natural filmic look here, with a veneer of slightly gritty grain that's untouched by DNR. Basically, everything looks exactly how it ought to look, and there's no evidence of any boosting or tweaking on Magnolia's part. The film features a very muted, drab palette dominated by muddy browns and faded greens, with the only vividness coming from the occasional fire and the red gleam of blood on well-used swords. 13 Assassins won't win any award for most colorful Blu-ray presentation, but the hues are rich and dense. Black levels get a bit hazy during certain darker indoor scenes, but I get the feeling that is unavoidable if shadow detail is to be preserved. Besides, blacks are tight and contrast strong during the daylight scenes, which typically have lots of depth and presence. Clarity is generally excellent, with defined facial textures in close-ups and lots of visible detail in the costuming and set design. Noise rarely spikes, and I didn't notice any real compression issues. The film looks great.


13 Assassins Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Turn this one up loud. Just do it. You'll be glad you did. 13 Assassins comes with a Japanese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that's appropriately intense. The 50-minute battle sequence that closes the film is sonically brutal; crank up the volume and you'll feel like you're right in the middle of the action. In an interview included on the disc, Miike talks about how important sound design was in the making of the filmŚhe specifically stresses how he didn't want to repeat any soundsŚand this comes through in the mix's almost non-stop sense of immersion. The surround channels are active in just about every scene. Arrows whiz between speakers, swords clang and scrape, dismembered soldiers moan from all side, and horse hooves pound thunderously against the dirt. In several instances, the soundfield is rocked by massive explosions that activate the subwoofer and send debris flying through the rear channels. Even the less involving scenes come alive with ambience, from swells of rain and wind in the trees to delicate sounds like the crackle of a candle. Music is only used selectively in the filmŚthere's no score for almost all of the big battle sceneŚbut when it is present it sounds wonderful, with rich strings and an expansive presentation. Dialogue occasionally sounds a bit murky and low, but never to the point of distraction or unintelligibility. The disc also includes a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 English track, but like most dubs it simply doesn't capture the spirit of the original performances. Stick with the stellar Japanese mix.
