Masquerade

 (2012)

Masquerade Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The 15th ruler of Korea's Joseon Dynasty, King Gwang-hae, orders his councilor, Heo Gyun, to find him a double to shield him from the constant threat of assassination. Heo Gyun finds Ha-sun, a bawdy comedian who looks remarkably like the king. When Gwang-hae is incapacitated, Heo Gyun has Ha-sun pretend to be the king until Gwang-hae recovers. But soon Ha-sun begins to see his "act" as an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of ordinary people.

For more about Masquerade and the Masquerade Blu-ray release, see Masquerade Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Lee Byung-hun, Han Hyo-joo, Yoo Seung Yong, Ryoo Seung-ryong, Shim Eun-kyung

Masquerade Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Shot on Red by Lee Tae-yoon (The Man from Nowhere), another of the film's Grand Bell winners, Masquerade is a stunning demonstration of how to use digital photography in the creation of a sweeping historical epic. Its vistas of the 17th Century Korean royal court peopled with ministers, nobles, servants, soldiers and innumerable other functionaries, all adorned in elaborate period garb and seen in clear focus, are a textbook demonstration of the ability of digital photography to render both scale and detail in a manner that used to require 65mm photography, with the attendant expense and technical limitations.

As is typically the case with digitally originated material, CJ Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray provides an excellent image, with sharp and detailed clarity, vivid colors that are never oversaturated, deep and solid blacks, and fine shadow detail that never suffers from an excess of contrast. Reds and golds are especially vibrant, and the various shades of white in the servants uniforms and the robes of the crowd in the huge courtyard are rendered with subtlety.

Although the film runs 132 minutes, the complete lack of extras and also of lossless audio has allowed it to fit on a BD-25 without any noticeable artifacts.


Masquerade Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

CJ Entertainment has provided a choice between 5.1 and 2.0 soundtracks, in either Korean or English. Both of the Korean tracks automatically engage English subtitles, which can be switched off manually.

All of the audio tracks are Dolby Digital at standard DVD bitrates. While the absence of a lossless option is regrettable, the Korean DD 5.1 track to which I listened provides an acceptable listening experience, with well-centered dialogue (the intelligibility of which I cannot judge), a distinctive sense of the various environments, an enveloping surround field for such sounds as the chanting by crowds at court, and a well-balanced reproduction of the soaring score by Mowg and Kim Jun-seong.
