Kiss of the Dragon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Kiss of the Dragon kicks its way onto the Bluray format in a 1080p/MPEG-2 encoding, framed in a 2:36:1 aspect ratio that is quite frankly a visual mess. First, it looks no better to these eyes than a standard DVD would look; as it lacks detail and definition that high definition video is known for. The source is not optimized, as we see brief spurts of speckles, and occasional dirt and scratches. Blacks are inky deep, but often so deep it hid shadow detail. On location lightning is dark leaving images ill defined and hard to see. Worse the overall picture quality is dogged by a warm yellowing that affects everything from skin tones to the sky. It also affected the color palette which caused images to lose their natural coloring, and appear drab, under saturated, and a bit smeared. Contrast is all over the place, as you can see a lack of brightness stability and creates a bit of fluttering in the images. Images also lack depth, and appear very one dimensional and flat to these eyes. Colors overall were washed out, as blood lack the requisite "redness" that convinces the eyes you are seeing actual blood. I also found a very rare occurrence of image trails on arms and legs that caused a bit of image instability. Fox has always been known for providing good picture quality on its releases, but they fell far short on this one.


Kiss of the Dragon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 Dts HD master audio track is very impressive, but it has a pet peeve of mine that I couldn't shake. This lossless presentation is well mixed, and utilizes every inch of the sound field, and every speaker to full effect. While there was nice delineation between music, effects and dialog, they lacked sound field depth, which flattened out the spatial effect of the entire mix. The heavy use of the surrounds helps make that effect less noticeable, as they added a nice envelopment which countered the flat front sound stage. Sonic detail is very good, but not excellent as punches, kicks, impacts, came across clearly, but had detail often drowned out by high levels of bass coming from the LFE and main three front channels. Shattering glass often had that fried bacon sound, and did not sound like shattering glass in some cases. Channel to channel panning was smooth, and highly effective. My only problem with this mix is that it had a tilted frequency response, which favored the bass and deep bass frequencies to the point that some effects lacked that last bit of resolution and detail. This is nit picking, but I noticed it, and others that utilize full range fronts along with a subwoofer will probably notice it as well. This soundtrack fared much better than the video in this case, but it made for a very unbalanced presentation when they were combined together.
