Lady Vengeance

 (2005)

Lady Vengeance Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Imprisoned for thirteen years for allegedly kidnapping and murdering a six-year-old boy, Lee Geum-ja wastes no time in winning over her cellmates' sympathies. From the former prostitute who strangled her pimp to the old North Korean spy who hands her the "Sutra of revenge"-- illustrated instructions for crafting a handmade gun disguised as a prayer book--all the prisoners become instrumental in the scheme Geum-ja has meticulously drafted for her future as a free woman. Deprived of her baby daughter and of her youth, Geum-ja at first seems to accept her tragic destiny. However, she never strays from her plans to take a mighty revenge on the former teacher who betrayed her and slaughtered her innocence.

For more about Lady Vengeance and the Lady Vengeance Blu-ray release, see Lady Vengeance Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Lady Vengeance Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Korean director Park Chan-wook's Sympathy for Lady Vengeance arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of UK-based distributors Palisades Tartan.

Note: The version of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance found on this Blu-ray disc is not identical to the one found on the Hong Kong Blu-ray disc we have already reviewed. The Palisades Tartan Blu-ray disc contains the "fading to black and white" version of the film.

This is a fine but not exceptional transfer. Detail is good, clarity consistent, and contrast stable throughout the entire film. Edge-enhancement, however, is fairly obvious during a number of scenes - there is more of it during the color half of the film, and less during the black and white half. Film grain appears to be intact, but some of it is mixed with a bit of digital noise. On a positive side, macroblocking is not an issue of concern. Color saturation levels are strong. Generally speaking, however, this transfer has a slightly darker color complexion when compared to the one used for the Hong Kong Blu-ray release. Finally, I noticed a few tiny flecks popping up here and there while viewing the film; however, there are no large debris and scratches to report in this review. To sum it all up, despite some of the minor issues described above, this is a fine presentation. Also, I personally prefer this specific version of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance over the one found on the Hong Kong Blu-ray release. I think that it is far more effective and in sync with the film's message, but some of you may disagree with me. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free player in order to access its content).


Lady Vengeance Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track in this Blu-ray disc: Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Palisades Tartan have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

The Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is impressive. As I noted in my evaluation of the Korean DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track found on the Hong Kong Blu-ray disc, there are some very neat surround effects in Sympathy for Lady Vengeance that are treated wonderfully with it. On the other hand, the dialog is crisp and clear throughout the entire film. There are no balance issues to report with Choi Seung-hyun's music score either. I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or dropouts to report in this review.
