An Empress and the Warriors Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

There are two noticeable problems with An Empress and the Warrior's AVC encoded 1080p image (in 2.35:1) which keep this otherwise excellent transfer from a higher score, namely omnipresent shimmer and some relatively more minor edge enhancement. Shimmer crops up incessantly on the ornately sculpted headgear the warriors wear, and often on the geometrically patterned chainmail which adorns their breastplates and armor. Edge enhancement is noticeable on such "usual suspects" as backlit spears held up in front of the sky. If you can get past these two artifacting issues, what's left is a solid looking piece, with some exceptional detail and some very appealing colors, all well saturated. While the opening scenes of the movie are cast in shades of gray, once Feier escapes to the forest, things move into a beautiful, and often very subtly gradated, green palette. Contrast and black levels are very good throughout the film, and overall, despite some annoyances, An Empress and the Warriors looks quite sumptuous indeed.


An Empress and the Warriors Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

While there is no lossless audio on this Blu-ray, the combo Mandarin-Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track is a fairly robust affair, especially in the vigorous battle scenes, which literally ooze LFE and some great quicksilver sword hitting sword effects. The battle segments do offer a goodly amount of immersion, with thundering hooves and the pelt of rain filling the soundfield appealingly. More subtle, but quite effective, are some ambient effects in the quieter forest scenes between Feier and Lanquan. The English Dolby Digital 5.1 mix actually offers above average dubbing (that of course being a relative term) and the same overall mix of foley effects. While it's a shame that a film with these explosive battle elements didn't get a lossless track (especially when lossless offerings were evidently provided on some foreign releases), the DD 5.1 track is a robust, if somewhat compressed sounding, affair which shouldn't inordinately disappoint too many listeners.
