Ip Man

 (2008)

Ip Man Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Adapted from the life story of Ip Man - the grand master of the Wing Chun style of kung fu and sifu of legendary kung fu superstar Bruce Lee. This movie will be the first important record of the master's life. Ip's persistent devotion to Wing Chun is a classic example of the love and respect shown to wushu and the freedom and spirit it represents. Ip Man is a concept, a spirit, a way of thinking - and it exemplifies a new peak in Hong Kong's wushu movies.

For more about Ip Man and the Ip Man Blu-ray release, see Ip Man Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Donnie Yen, Hiroyuki Ikeuchi, Fan Siu-Wong, Xiong Dailin, Wong You-nam, Simon Yam
Director: Wilson Yip

Ip Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Wilson Yip's Ip Man arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Cine-Asia/Showbox Entertainment.

The transfer for this release differs quite a bit from the one we saw from Universe Laser & Video Co. First, the color-scheme is not as rich and well saturated. Blacks, grays and blues are very different. Second, during selected scenes, edge-enhancement is rather easy to spot. Third, there is quite a bit of digital noise that pops up here and there.

Generally speaking detail ranges from average to pleasing. Some of the action scenes, for example, look quite strong; elsewhere, however - particularly during the second half of Ip Man - the picture looks a bit soft. Macroblocking is not a serious issue of concern. There are no stability issues to report on this review either. Overall, the transfer looks healthy. Serious damage - debris, scratches, marks, warps, etc - are nowhere to be seen. To sum it all up, I believe that the more sensitive amongst you, and particularly those who are going to view Ip Man on larger that 50-55' screens, will undoubtedly notice many of transfer issues I described above. (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).


Ip Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and Cantonese Dolby Digital 2.0. I opted for the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons for the purpose of this review.

Good news! Showbox Entertainment's Blu-rays finally have loseless audio.

The Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is solid. In fact, I would say that it is very mu on par with the DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track from the Hong Release of Ip Man. The bass is rich, the rear channels very active, and the high frequencies not overdone. Once again, as it was the case with the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track, the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track will undoubtedly test the muscles of your audio system. The dialog is crisp, clear and easy to follow.

Plain and simple - the Cantonese Dolby Digital 2.0 track is dramatically inferior to the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track. I tested a couple of the better action scenes and, suffice to say, I cannot think of a single reason why you should not opt for the Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track.

For the record, Showbox Entertainment have provided English subtitles for the main feature. They are, however, "imposed" (this would mean that you cannot turn them off). As you could see from our screenshots, they also split the image frame and the black bar below it.
