Election 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Johnnie To's Election II arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors Panorama.

Election II looks slightly sharper and better detailed than Election. Its color-scheme, however, is as complex as that of Election. There are plenty of scenes where grays, browns, blues and whites look somewhat soft. The heavy shadows I addressed in my review for Election are once again of utmost importance in this film – there are certain scenes where you could barely see the faces of the main protagonists. Again, I assume that all of this is intentional. This being said, I noticed a bit of mild-edge enhancement (see second capture) popping up here and there but it is hardly something that would affect your viewing experience. Occasionally, I also spotted bits of digital noise. Macroblocking, however, is not an issue of concern. The actual print appears to be in near perfect condition. Aside from a few tiny specks that I saw early into the film, there are no disturbing debris, scratches, or dirt to report in this review. I would also like to mention that this is a notably stable print. To sum it all up, if the few issues I noted above were not present, Election II would have looked exceptional. Still, I have absolutely no problem recommending this disc to you. (Note: This is a Region-Free disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Election 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1. I opted for the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons with the other two tracks for the purpose of this review.

Once again, I am very pleased with the audio treatment. The Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track has been mixed exceptionally well - the bass is convincing, the high frequencies not overdone and the rear channels intelligently used. The dialog is crisp, clean and very easy to follow. The music score by Robert Ellis-Geiger is delicately mixed with the dialog. There are no disturbing pops, cracks, or dropouts that I detected.

And once again, the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track is not a match for the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. This is not to say that it is a flawed track, but it most certainly does not match the dynamic intensity of the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. Interestingly enough, this is most obvious not during the action scenes, but when Robert Ellis-Geiger's soundtrack is more prominent. For the record, Panorama have provided optional English, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese subtitles. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.
