Hard Boiled Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Unfortunately Hard Boiled suffers from one of the shoddier looking Blu-ray transfers in the Dragon Dynasty releases from Vivendi, which may be in large part due to the shape of the master. Encoded via AVC, in 1080p and a 1.85:1 aspect ratio, Hard Boiled is one of the softer, grainier films in this series. It may be a slight improvement over the unbelievably shoddy early 1080i releases from Dragon Dynasty, but not by much. In fact the bulk of this film has the soft, artificial appearance of an upconverted SD-DVD. Colors are reasonably robust here, with agreeable sharpness in close-ups at least. But the print is littered with damage and debris, and opticals especially look pretty bad. One bungled special effect in the jazz club will leave you wondering if this was mastered from a mistracking VHS tape. While there may be a slight uptick in quality from the SD-DVD, I doubt too many lovers of Hard Boiled are going to be very excited by this Blu-ray presentation from an image standpoint, and that's a real shame.


Hard Boiled Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Considerably better is Hard Boiled's repurposed lossless Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. This doesn't have the blistering immersion one might expect from a newer film, but the reworking of the original Cantonese mono track (also included via a Dolby Digital 2.0 mono mix which purists will want to stick with) is quite striking at times, especially (as might be expected) in the many exciting action sequences. Gunfire erupts from a variety of surround channels, with bullets whizzing through the soundfield with abandon. Screams intrude from every nook and cranny, and the rapid fire of automatic gunfire fills the subwoofer with some impressive LFE. This entire film was post-dubbed, and so there are some odd synchronization issues which are not the fault of the track itself, but the source elements. It actually gives Hard Boiled that same slightly surreal quality that populates the similarly recorded Cinecitta films including the Fellini classics. There isn't any egregious damage to the stems, though there is noticeable compression and thin highs at times. An English DD 5.1 dub is also included.
