Jackie Chan: Crime Story / The Protector

 (1985-1993)

Jackie Chan: Crime Story / The Protector Blu-ray features poor video and great audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

No synopsis for Jackie Chan: Crime Story / The Protector.

The Protector

Jackie Chan: Crime Story / The Protector Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Presented in their original aspect ratios of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted 1080p transfers, Kirk Wong's Crime Story and James Glickenhaus's The Protector arrive on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout Factory.

Screencaptures 1-9 are from Crime Story, while screencaptures 10-20 are from The Protector.

There is not a lot to be overly excited about as the transfers for the two films appear to have been sourced from standard definition masters. Needless to say, all of the key areas that we typically address in these reviews have the types of limitations one should expect from standard definition transfers - weak detail and color reproduction, unconvincing depth, and unsatisfactory clarity, among other things. I should also mention that there are various tiny specks and minor scratches that pop up here and there, which were also present on Kam & Ronson Enterprises' Blu-ray release of Crime Story. Some edge shimmer is also visible on both films (it is more prominent on The Protector). All in all, despite the minor compression improvements, you should consider picking up this release only if you do not already own the two films on it on DVD. (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).


Jackie Chan: Crime Story / The Protector Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Crime Story arrives the following audio tracks: Cantonese DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, Cantonese Dolby Digital 2.0, and English Dolby Digital 2.0. The Protector arrives with the following tracks: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English Dolby Digital 2.0. For the record, Shout Factory have provided optional English subtitles for both films.

The lossless tracks are probably the biggest reason why one would want to consider upgrading his DVD releases of Crime Story and The Protector. Though slightly uneven, the lossless Cantonese track on Crime Story certainly opens up the film during important action scenes. The lossless track on The Protector, however, isn't as pleasing. Though dynamic movement is elevated, there is some light background hiss that pops up from time to time. There are no serious distortions or audio dropouts on the two tracks to report in this review.
