A Better Tomorrow Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

A Better Tomorrow arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Well Go USA with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This is an uncommonly beautiful film, especially for a crime thriller, and some of the location footage is simply gorgeous to behold. Song and his cinematographer Seung-Ki Kang have an incredible eye for detail and especially for light, and there are a number of really subtly lit scenes here that almost look like color versions of the great noir black and white cinematographers in the U.S. in the late forties and early fifties. Fine detail is exceptional in this presentation, and while many scenes are filtered (some yellow, some blue), overall the palette is extremely varied and robustly displayed, with excellent saturation. Black levels are solid and shadow detail remains strong even in a couple of nighttime sequences. This film's tilt toward amber in several key sequences is incredibly impressive, with contrast pushed just slightly but no fine detail lost in the process. Best of all, there's virtually no artifacting to report, despite some ubiquitous typical problem spots like chain link fences and heavy foliage.


A Better Tomorrow Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

A Better Tomorrow is presented with an incredibly effective lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track in Korean (a lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 mixdown is also available). This is one of the most enjoyable soundtracks in recent memory, with tons of great discrete sound effects zinging around the channels in the set pieces, all of which offer incredible LFE as well. But even the quieter moments of this film are handled very, very well, from virtually the first moment of the film. As Hyuk tosses and turns in bed, haunted by nightmares of his abandoning his brother and mother in North Korea, we get very expert sound effects creating a claustrophobic feeling which really helps to create some tension and helps us to understand the psychological underpinnings of the character. There are a number of great sonic moments sprinkled throughout the film, with both the first big shoot out and the final, apocalyptic showdown being the standouts. Both of these sequences feature nonstop, floorboard rattling LFE and incredibly precise directionality that really help to elevate these moments—almost to the level of a John Woo film.
