China Gate Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

China Gate is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. This 20th Century Fox CinemaScope production offers elements that are in very good to excellent shape, with only occasional damage to report. There's some slight bleed through during the very opening Fox and CinemaScope logos, and then occasionally there's slight damage running down the right center part of the frame intermittently. Scratches are relatively few and far between, though there are the expected dirt, debris and white specks that show up from time to time. Despite this minor issues, the bulk of this high definition presentation looks very good indeed. The image is nicely sharp, with well variegated blacks, whites and gray scale, and contrast is generally quite strong. The film has a lot of stock footage interspersed throughout, and most of that looks pretty ragged. The rear projection and matte shots also look below par, at least when compared to the bulk of the film.


China Gate Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

China Gate features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix which sports little damage but which offers relatively anemic low end, meaning some of the climactic explosions don't quite have the sonic "oomph" that younger audiences used to whiz bang soundtracks might be expecting. On the other hand, the beautiful Young-Steiner score sounds surprisingly fulsome, especially in the high and midrange, where the admittedly cliché ridden use of parallel fourths with percussion to evoke a Far Eastern ambience comes through with a great deal of vibrancy. Dialogue is mostly clear, though the climactic final scene with Barry and Goldie in the airplane was more or less completely incomprehensible to me due to the overweening foley effect of the airplane engines. I suspect this is endemic to the stems as I doubt any serious remixing attended this release.
