Mad Detective Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Mad Detective is the first Blu-ray release by UK-based distribs Eureka Entertainment. Having built a solid reputation with their SDVD output, the distribs certainly do not disappoint with their first Blu-ray release.

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.40:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Mad Detective boasts a solid and very convincing look. Finely detailed, with a natural film appearance and a nuanced color-scheme, the transfer is indeed terrific. The heavy blue tint favored by cinematographer Ceng Siu-keung is also kept intact. The film's delicately lensed night scenes, where a softer look becomes evident, are free of digital enhancement, and as a result, clarity remains consistent. During the daylight scenes, contrast levels are also excellent. I certainly was not able to detect any DNR alterations either. To sum it all up, this is a terrific looking, very convincing presentation of fantastic film. (Note: this is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Mad Detective Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese DTS-HD Master 5.1, Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 5.1, and Cantonese Dolby Stereo 2.0. I opted for the DTS-HD Master 5.1 track and later on did selective comparisons with the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track.

First of all, there is a healthy amount of activity in the surround channels. During some of the shooting scenes the clarity and punch the loseless audio track delivers are outstanding (the bike scene is indicative of the strong basics the DTS-HD Master mix boasts). Second, on the more nuanced side of things, both dialog and music appear to be perfectly tackled by the audio producers. The dialog is very easy to follow while the supporting soundtrack is perfectly mixed with it. I did not detect any hissing, pop-ups, or cracks either. As I mentioned earlier, I did compare the DTS-HD Master mix with the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track during a few specific scenes (the shooting scene in the forest; the bike scene, where the detective, his new friend and their wives dine; etc) and could not hear any specific advantages that one of the tracks had over the other. Both high and low frequencies appeared identical as well. Optional English subtitles are provided for the main feature (Please note that the subtitles are placed outside of the film frame).
