Crime Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.86:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Kirk Wong's Crime Story arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Kam & Ronson Enterprises.

Crime Story is yet another catalog release from Kam & Ronson Enterprises which uses a transfer that has been struck from a standard definition master. Naturally, detail is not is impressive as it could be. Clarity and contrast levels are also quite unstable, particularly during the nighttime footage. A lot of the close-ups also have a tendency to look overwhelmingly noisy, at times even blocky, while some of the larger panoramic scenes occasionally convey mild shimmering around the edges. This being said, this transfer still represents a step up in quality when compared to the transfer Joy Sales used for the old remastered R3 SDVD release of Crime Story. Color reproduction, in particular, is a lot stronger - both reds and blues are not breaking up as dramatically as they do on the SDVD and the blacks are better saturated. Various mild to moderate traces of edge-enhancement, however, are visible throughout the entire film. I also noticed quite a few minor flecks popping up here and there. For the record, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Crime Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1, Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1, and Thai Dolby Digital 5.1. For the record, Kam & Ronson Enterprises have provided optional English and Traditional Chinese subtitles for the main feature.

The Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track is good, though occasionally slightly uneven. The bass, for instance, is lush and active, but the surround channels come alive primarily during the key action scenes. Also, there are specific sound enhancements that occasionally stick out (shattered glass). The dialog, however, is crisp, clean, and stable. Generally speaking, the English translation is decent, but I noticed more than a few spelling and syntax errors.
