Black Mask

 (1996)

Black Mask Blu-ray features poor video and solid audio in this poor Blu-ray release

Director Daniel Lee makes his feature film debut with this Jet Li (Lethal Weapon 4) vehicle. Li, who made his American debut in Weapon, is an internationally renowned martial arts master who has starred in dozens of Chinese chop-socky films. Here he plays a superhuman soldier with the 701 Squad who goes by the name of the Black Mask. Undercover in Hong Kong, he collaborates with the police to solve a series of murders.

For more about Black Mask and the Black Mask Blu-ray release, see Black Mask Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Jet Li, Lau Ching Wan, Karen Mok, Françoise Yip, Patrick Lung Kang, Anthony Chau-Sang Wong

Black Mask Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Black Mask arrives on Blu-ray with the old MPEG-2 video codec. Framed at 1.85:1 and presented in 1080p high definition, Black Mask offers a subpar high definition experience and will probably rank near the bottom of discs you would use to show off your home theater's Blu-ray capabilities. Pops and speckles are seen all over the print. Black levels and flesh tones are moderately good, but definitely lacking. The image is flat and uninspired with some shots exhibiting a rather heavy amount of grain, while others look like there is a layer of fog over the movie. The transfer offers just enough detail and sharpness to appear to be high definition at a glance, but that's about it. Colors are a bit dull, but the transfer gives no hints that it could look a whole lot better than it does here. Having never seen the film before, and barely knowing of its existence before today, I can only surmise what's going on here, but it does look like the film is intentionally dull and poorly lit in many shots. It doesn't look all that good next to something like Saawariya (then again, what does?) or even a mediocre Blu-ray transfer like The Perfect Storm, but it has its moments and I suspect fans of the film who know the material inside and out will not be too disappointed with this one as it still looks a bit better than your average unconverted DVD, taking into consideration its generally dark and drab nature.


Black Mask Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Lionsgate goes all-out with the audio, bringing Black Mask to Blu-ray with an English DTS-HD MA 7.1 surround sound lossless audio track. Please note that this track is a dub and is the only audio option available. It seems a nice opportunity was missed by not including the original language track, and limited research suggests that this track features different music as well. Purists will probably want to avoid this one, but in any case, the full-fledged 7.1 dub offers some tasty sonic moments sure to work your home theater system hard. This audio is dynamic and intense. We are treated to a fantastic barrage of action sequences throughout the movie, beginning after the first minute or so and never relenting. The first of such scenes features loud and powerful gun shots that come from every direction, and heavy explosions that create a low frequency presence. Each subsequent action sequence is just as dynamic. There are times when this one seems loud just for the sake of being loud, sacrificing clarity and definition for volume. Discrete effects are often found in various speakers across the soundstage, but there is a gimmicky feel to some of it. The track does create a nice atmosphere in many scenes, with solid ambience that surrounds the viewer with some niceties that increase the quality of the track. The dubbed dialogue is clear and intelligible. While this may not be the best defined or more precise track of all time, it fits the material perfectly, is a blast to listen to, and its over-the-top sound design suits the film perfectly.
