Accident Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Cheang Pou-Soi's Accident arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong-Kong based distributors Media Asia.

This is a strong high-definition transfer, with some unique characteristics. Detail and clarity vary substantially, particularly during the Brain's memory recollections. On the other hand, the real time action looks well detailed and crisp. The nighttime footage is very dark, and at times the heavy blacks, browns and blues become overwhelming. Occasionally, mild digital noise pops up here and there. Edge-enhancement and macroblocking, however, are not a serious issue of concern. When blown through a digital projector, the transfer also remains tight around the edge. I did notice a few tiny flecks, but large and annoying debris, scratches, dirt, or stains are nowhere to be seen. All in all, Accident looks quite good in 1080p, and I have absolutely no problem recommending it to you. (Note: Despite the fact that the back cover indicates that this is a Region-A only disc, it is in fact Region-Free. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Accident Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three different audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1, Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1, and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1. I opted for the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons with the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track for the purpose of this review.

The Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track enhances the moody aura of the film notably well. During the second "accident", for example, the surround activity is very effective (the heavy rain, the electrocution, the giant bus crash, etc). The bass is also rich and powerful. Xavier Jamaux's ambient soundtrack also benefits quite a bit - during the second half of the film, when the Brain begins his quest, the music has a very important role, and the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 enhances it exceptionally well. The dialog is crisp and easy to follow. There are no disturbing pops, cracks, or hissings to report either.

I used a couple of scenes - the second "accident" and the final event - to compare the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track with the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track. Frankly, the difference between the two is enormous. The Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track conveys far more depth and fluidity (for example, test the electrocution scene to hear how dramatic the difference between the two is). Also, Xavier Jamaux 's ambient soundtrack is a lot more effective on the Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track.

For the record, Mega Star have provided optional English, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame. Please note that there are a few minor syntax errors with the English translation.
