China Girl Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Abel Ferrara's China Girl arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French distributors Metropolitan.

The high-definition transfer was obviously struck from a dated source, but its basics are actually quite strong. The overwhelming majority of the close-ups, for example, are well detailed and boasting pleasing depth. During the panoramic shots with the lush neon lights clarity is also good. More importantly, there are no traces of overzealous sharpening corrections. There are a few traces of light sharpening popping up here and there, but it is never overly distracting (I specifically looked for a good example - see screencapture #14). Color reproduction is also unproblematic. There are no serious banding and aliasing issues either. Lastly, there are no large damage marks, cuts, debris, or stains plaguing the high-definition transfer. All in all, though not spectacular, the presentation certainly represents a good upgrade over the only R2 DVD release of the film that I have seen. (Notre: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


China Girl Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS 2.0 and French DTS 2.0. For the record, Metropolitan have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature.

A lossless audio track would have been preferable, but the English DTS 2.0 track is far from disappointing. The music during the long prologue where Tony meets Tye in the disco club and the two dance, for instance, sounds very good. The gunshots are also very crisp and clear. The dialog is stable, clear and easy to follow. Additionally, there are no problematic dynamic fluctuations or high-frequency distortions to report in this review. Once again, even though a lossless track would have been preferable, the DTS 2.0 track serves the film very well.
