Fist of Legend Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Dragon Dynasty Blu's got off to a rocky start with lamentable video presentations on both 36th Chamber of Shaolin and The Killer. Luckily, that trend reversed itself fairly convincingly with The Protector, which I half wondered might be due to Tarantino's involvement with that film. Fist of Legend has no Tarantino connection (at least officially, anyway), and yet we're offered a convincing, if not quite perfect, AVC encoded 1080p transfer (yes, 1080p--looks like Vivendi finally got the message) in an aspect ratio of 1.85:1. This is a very good looking transfer by and large, with beautifully saturated colors and a wealth of fine detail. Grain is completely natural looking, rather evident in some shots, but never distracting, and actually helping to give this transfer a very palpable texture. The source elements themselves have very minor issues, including passing flecks and a scratch or two. I noticed absolutely no post processing issues like edge enhancement or DNR. I'd say Vivendi is batting about .400 now with these Dragon Dynasty releases, with some points taken off for this film's source element damage, as minor as it is.


Fist of Legend Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Unfortunately, no lossless audio options are offered on this Blu. Instead we get Dolby 2.0 mono tracks in both Cantonese and Mandarin, as well as a repurposed English dub in Dolby 5.1. I toggled back and forth between all three of these and found I liked the Cantonese best, though both of the Chinese tracks are plagued by some synchronization issues. Obviously this was a multi-lingual production to begin with, so ADR was probably a must. Both of the mono tracks do have a bit of the boxy sound of films much older than a vintage 1994 movie, but overall fidelity is fine, if not mind-blowing. The English 5.1 mix is a bit more spacious, as might be expected, but I actually found it somewhat off putting at times. While the surround activity is fun in the fight sequences, for the other, non-action segments (and there are lots, despite the film's pedigree), the 5.1 just seemed too artificial, as if a lacquer of reverb had been slathered onto the stems. What's really missing here, from all three choices, is that "thunk"-worthiness on the low end that a lossless option provides. Even the fiercest punches here sound anemic, not a good sign in a film which relies on sound effects to deliver visceral excitement during an action sequence.

There has been some controversy that this release was "dubtitled" instead of "subtitled," but not having seen other releases of this film, I can say that the issue really didn't bother me too greatly.
