Connected

 (2008)

Connected Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Bob (Louis Koo)'s life isn't going well at all. A single father in a dead-end job as a debt collector, he's trapped in a job that goes against his usual easy-going helpful nature and he's under tremendous pressure to be a better dad, a better brother, a better worker, even a better person. While dealing with all this and his sister (Flora Chan)s threat to move to China with his son to force him to clean up his act, Bob receives a call out of the blue. Its a stranger called Grace (Barbie Hsu) who claims a mysterious kidnapper (Liu Ye) is keeping her against her will and begs him to save her and her young daughter. Is it just a heartless prank? The detective (Nick Cheung) he tried reporting the call to seems to think so but Bobs instincts tell him that he may just be the only thing standing between them and a painful death. But does he have the mettle to rise above his own self-centred concerns and risk everything including his own son for two people he has never met and who may not even exist?

For more about Connected and the Connected Blu-ray release, see Connected Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Connected Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Benny Chan's Connected arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of US-based distributors Tai Seng Entertainment.

Well, folks, from what I could tell, this release appears to be identical to the one distributed by Joy Sales in Hong Kong -- Tai Seng Entertainment have also used a 25GB for the main feature and placed all of the supplemental features on a separate DVD (only the disc art is somewhat different). Therefore, the comments I made in my review for the HK release apply to this transfer as well there are some compression issues, mild aliasing, and a bit of edge-enhancement which most of you will notice. As I noted in my review for the HK release, the color-scheme is also very inconsistent - yellows, reds, greens, browns, and blacks do not look natural at all. There are some minor improvements during the second half of Connected, but, overall, this 1080p transfer does not strike me as being particularly healthy. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc which you will be able to play on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Connected Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

This Blu-ray disc, courtesy of Tai Seng Entertainment, boasts the same three audio tracks found on the HK release: Cantonese LPCM 5.1, Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1 (For the record, the disc does not contain an English dub). Tai Seng Entertainment have kept the same subtitle options as well: English, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Bahasa Indonesian, Bahasa Malaysian and Korean.

Once again, the comments I had for the HK release of Connected remain valid for this US release. I found the Cantonese LPCM track to be quite strong, at times even notably impressive. There is a good dose of activity in the rear channels, a prominent bass and a good balance between the dialog and the music soundtrack. Furthermore, there are absolutely no distortions that I could detect; indeed, the Cantonese LPCM 5.1 track is free of pops, cracks and hissings. On the other hand, given the abundance of action scenes in Connected, you should be able to test the muscles of your audio system (the crash scene in the very beginning of the film sounds terrific). As far as the English subtitles are concerned, it is very easy to tell Tai Seng Entertainment have used the same text file Joy Sales used for their Blu-ray release.
